Vocal Point Live

I love live music. I love feeling the energy from the audience around me. I love how the music seems to get into your soul until your heart beats along with it. I love the stinging hands from clapping too much, I love my cheeks hurting from smiling too much. It's so fun!

The only problem is, I don't go to live concerts very often. Mostly it's the money issue, but it's also that if I'm going to go and spend that money, I want to be uplifted, not brought down. I want to have a good time. That's why Vocal Point's concert was amazing!

I don't think I have had so much fun since I went to see Josh Groban last August. (And y'all know I love me some Josh!) Though, you can't really compare they two. They truly are separate but equal. (I mean, one's Josh Groban, and the other is an a capella group. You can't compare a solo vocalist with a group of 9 nine guys, no matter how amazing they both are.) The energy was perfect, and I felt that it was such a good mix of fun, exciting songs, and slower, moving songs. I'm not one of those people that keep track of set lists, but here is another blog that gives the complete VP set list for this concert.

I really enjoyed the entire experience. As for favorite parts (now that I've had time to come off the adrenaline high and process the entire experience): "Dare You to Move" (great arrangement. I cried.), Tanner's percussionist solo, Robert's bass Elmo, and 12 Days of Christmas (I don't usually condone Christmas music before Thanksgiving and after New Year's, but this was so funny, I made an exception). Mom enjoyed "Savior, Redeemer of My Soul." Neil liked "No Not Much." Dad's favorite was also "Savior" and "You Really Got Me" (because it's the Kinks).

What I really enjoyed was that this was something I could go to with my parents and we could all have a good time. I'm proud that the members of Vocal Point know that they don't have to compromise their standards in order to appeal to the masses. They are very good entertainers and I wish I hadn't been so lame when I was at BYU and had taken advantage of more plays and concerts.

  1. We saw them a couple years ago and I loved that they sang "Grace Kelly." But instead of saying "dirty" they said "nerdy" and it made me giggle like crazy for the rest of the song. :)
