This past Friday when I covered AJR there was another local artist that opened the show for them… Michael Blume. He’s kind labeled himself as a “Progressive R&B” artist which is pretty accurate. Although I’m not areal fan of the genre I must say I’d go and see this guy again.
His live performance is excellent. Vocally he’s amazing and on point. He has great rage and sings with passion. His on stage performance also had two female backing vocalists he were insanely talented and also knew had to have a good time dancing next to mic stands and accompanying the Michael out front it what seemed to be choreographed dance numbers. His was also accompanied by a drummer and keyboardist who were just as groovy as the front man. He definitely did a good job in picking his stage friends. It was a great set and probably lasted 45 min. The crowd absolutely loved him. They cheered for him as if he was the headlining act. I have to stop here since I really don’t know much him but if you’re a fan of the R&B genre you’re going to want to check this guy out, he’s on the up and up.
