From the moment the band took the stage Tuesday night the good vibes began to flow as song after song brimmed with soul funk infused inspirational and positive messages about life and all of its nuances. We are living in cynical, and frightening times in the United States these days. Its pretty darn scary out there with the repressive policies of the Trump administration. That being said, much of the subject matter in Friends with the Weather songs performed Tuesday night revolved around the messages of hope, understanding, positivity, and not being afraid to be yourself. Important and relevant themes in this day and age.
But at the heart of the groups performance was impeccable, passionate, and inspired musicianship on the part of each musician. Vocalist and multi instrumentalist Seth Hendricks was particularly impeccable! His singing was assured, soulful and reminded me a lot of James Taylor.
I'm sure that everyone left the Ark Tuesday feeling as uplifted and inspired as I did.
