Performing tonight at the Levitt Pavilion was Humming House from Nashville, Tennessee. They took music from a variety of genres and made it their own. This increased their appeal to a vast number of people whose music preference differ. From Willie Nelson to Michael Jackson, everyone was represented. In addition to some covers they also performed some of their original music, including songs from their recently released album.
The audience engaged with the band from singing along, dancing and then expressing their disappointment when the concert was over. The merchandise was flying off the tables, including their newest album, Revelries. Humming House will play three more cities in Texas before continuing on to Arizona and California later this month.
It would be a disservice not to mention the brief demonstration that took place during the beginning of the concert. The protesters were there to bring attention to and plead for justice for Christian Taylor. That being said the band members did an amazing job at defusing what could have been a tragic and volatile situation. They were very respectful even stopping their performance to inquire the subject of the protest. Vocalist, Leslie Rodriguez stooped down to speak individually with some of the protestors. Justin Wade Tam, then acknowledged the issue, giving a voice to Christian Taylor and invited the protesters to join the audience and enjoy the concert.
There were a few people who left after the demonstration ended but most of the people stayed and enjoyed the nice weather and great music.
Free Music Under the Stars, summer series will continue through July 17.
