Andy Grammer and his support acts Parachute and Andrew Ripp rocked the Fonda Theatre on 5/17. Andrew Ripp opened the evening with an intimate and impressive acoustic set. I haven’t heard a room that silent for a musician in quite a while, so that was very neat to witness.
Parachute took the stage with some songs off of their last album The Way It Was as well as a couple new ones releasing fairly soon. Lead singer, Will Anderson always packs the house with energy and love as he climbed into the crowd, bumped fists and high fived fans. Parachute has a brand new single called “Can’t Help” which will be available on itunes June 4th. It was awesome to hear it live.
Andy Grammer, one of the most positive and uplifting musicians I know, took the stage at the Fonda Theatre for a night to remember. Andy is a genuine musician. He led the set off with his biggest smash “Keep Your Head Up” which instantly got everyone in the room singing along. It gets to those points when sometimes you can even hear the crowd over Andy. I loved it!
Andy also performed songs such as “Ladies,” “Lunatic,” “Slow,” and he even put a bit of the Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” into there. My favorite part of the set was when he got into the “Thrift Shop” cover by Macklemore. Andy’s energy and kindness for his fans really makes for an enjoyable night.
He ended the night with an encore of “Miss Me” and Calvin Harris’ “Feel So Close.” You can purchase Andy’s latest self titled album on iTunes. Visit his facebook page and follow him on Twitter @AndyGrammer.
