On July 11th, THE GARAGE had their first show since the first of the year. It was also Time Atlas’s EP release. The line-up was made up of seven beyond talented acts, which include Clay Borrell, John Chuck & The Class, Joe Fessler Band, Josh Clutter, Whosah, The Millenium and Time Atlas.
Clay Borrell kicked off the night with a superb performance. You can see Clay on the Stand Up Tour with Deleasa, which kicks off on July 18. You can catch him again in Minnesota when THE GARAGE hosts the tour on July 25.
The second act of the night, John Chuck & The Class, performed something I had never heard before. Their music is what I would consider pop rap punk. I had a lot of fun watching them and taking photos of their performance.
Joe Fessler Band was the third act of the night. I have never seen or heard of them before and I was wowed by their music. Definitely a band I’d love to see at THE GARAGE again.
The fourth performance of the night was a very good friend of mine named Josh Clutter. Josh had his girlfriend and harmonizer by his side, Kailey, as well as Dallas (who is also in Whosah). They put on a fun and spectacular performance that the crowd absolutely loved. Whosah, the fifth act of the night, may have been the most fun for me to see perform. The way Spencer Grimes performed on stage had me in giggle fits the entire time he was just so much fun to watch. A very spunky and fun-filled performance overall.
The Millenium, performed excellently. It was natural for me to watch and photograph them since I’ve been doing it since they started. They get better and better each performance. Each individual’s energy adds something beautiful to the band and create something I like to view as bliss.
Now, the most anticipated performance of the night, Time Atlas. I have had the pure pleasure of watching Grayson DeWolfe (vocalist) grow and grow as a person and as a musician. Time Atlas has been working so hard for the past year on writing new music, getting a full line up and practicing constantly. Their performance was absolutely thrilling to watch.
