Talk about feel-good, hip-swinging music. If you missed this, you missed a great concert. Try not to get too down on yourself about it though, because you have me to fill you in on what you may have (but hopefully didn’t) miss.
I have start by admitting that I was a stranger to Rebelution and their amazing music before this show. I had no idea what I was missing out on. I decided to go to the concert on a whim, and I am so glad I did.
Being a front row fanatic, I ran up to the balcony as soon as I got there so I could take it all in. This was the first thing I saw:
I instantly picked up on the infectious rhythm. I remember looking out on the crowd, seeing all the fans moving to the music and I felt it immediately. At that moment, I knew I had discovered a new type of music that gives me a euphoric feeling that I crave.
So I put my phone down, closed my eyes, felt a huge grin fill my face and let the music take over.
One of my favorite parts of attending concerts is the unique production that each band or artist brings to the venue. Rebelution’s production was out of this world and while I tried to capture it, there’s no way these pictures could do it justice.
And this amazing guitar solo. I got lost in the lights while recording this video.
I don’t know what it was about this next song but I couldn’t help but dance to it. This song had the best beat and rhythm and it made my soul come alive.
The name of the song is “Roots Reggae Music.” Here’s the record version for you to play on repeat in case you like it as much as I do.
One thing I absolutely loved about this whole experience was the overarching message that Rebelution stands for. In the middle of the concert, Eric Rachmany (the lead singer) paused, looked at the cheering crowd and said “We are on a mission to promote love, peace and acceptance for everybody’s differences in this world.”
