Happy Abandon Shreds Onstage at Bourbon and Branch Philly
Happy Abandon took to the stage the evening of August 14th, on a hot Summer night, to offer up a heavy dose of cooleness. The indie quartet has been challenging the spirit of rock n’ roll with a unique and updated twist on the genre. During the show at Bourban and Branch, this was my first time witnessing the band live. Their single, “I Stare” which has steadily gained attention this Summer, has really opened my ears to the genre, as the band exploded with sound on stage. In the live setting, the group takes their music to a whole new level.
Their rock n’ roll demeanor is one a band wise beyond their years. Singer Peter Vance’s voice echoed and howled within every song the band played that evening, as it was brought full circle by the heavy rhythm section of Jake Waits and Justin Ellis, and the keyboard stylings of Alex Thompson. Happy Abandon was an absolute delight to see on the stage, and it will brought their recorded music into a new light. No matter what your choice of musical taste is, Happy Abandon will fulfill your appetite.
