Coming to Baltimore once again, Senses Fail stops by Soundstage for yet another fantastic tour. Coming along for the tour is Reggie and The Full Effect, Have Mercy, and Household. Check out the gallery below as our photographer Luis Rosales was there snapping away.
Up first to start the night off was Household, as they brought in a solid crowd early in the show. Bringing a mellow jam, it was an easy way to start the show. The lighting was exceptional as always for Soundstage as they perfectly lit up the band in various colors and had plenty of front white lighting to be seen. Household’s performance was exceptional and a great start.
Making a hometown appearance, Have Mercy jumps on stage next and had the crowd feeding off their high energy from the beginning. As the set went on, it went on to mellow out for a bit but not too much where they lose the crowd from jamming out some. Lighting again was great as they were beautifully lit. They sounded amazing as this hometown crowd was loving every minute of Have Mercy.
Following up the hometown boys in Have Mercy, Reggie and The Full Effect immediately made their presence noticeable with their humor and short stories before every song. Their singer, James Dewees, was a very entertaining frontman to say the least with not only his ease of crowd interaction, but he was very energetic and you could tell that him and the entire band were having the most fun on stage. The band had no problem getting the fans to have just as much fun as they did as their music made you feel good. Just like every band before them, they were exceptionally lit throughout the course of their set. Reggie and The Full Effect as this point of the night had one of the most fun sets so far as they had fans wanting more.
Finally for what everyone was waiting for, Senses Fail as they filled their stage with fog before storming the stage starting with “Family Tradition.” Their production blew everyone away with their various lighting structures that were insanely bright, in addition to the venue lighting used. The lights were a show in itself, so having Senses Fail play with that just made this show quite the experience. Singer, Buddy Nielsen, put on one of the most impressive sets with his use of the stage to run around and toss the microphone as well. Fans went absolutely crazy for Senses Fail as crowd surfers first started to appear during this set which set off a chain of events leading to more rowdiness. All in all, this was a fantastic show, from the lighting, how amazing they sounded, to their crazy amounts of energy on stage, Senses Fail never ceases to amaze anyone who comes out to one of their shows.
