The NorVa                                           Norfolk, VA.  May 12, 2016

Made Violent as they would call themselves… “the world-famous American rock band” from Buffalo kicked off the night. The band – consisting of Joe White (vocals & base), Rob Romano (vocals and guitar) and drummer Justin Acee who were just recently at the Norva opening for 21 Pilots are back and getting the crowd warmed up and ready for the amazing Struts!! It took some time but by the end of their set the crowd was ready to go….

Bring on The Struts!!!

The Struts - an English rock band from Derby, Derbyshire. The band consists of vocalist Luke Spiller, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliott, and drummer Gethin Davies.

Their stage presence is mesmerizing and energetic. Spiller who to me is like a funky mix up of Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, and Mick Jagger keeps you captivated with his high-energy dance moves and catchy riffs.

The Struts started the night off with Roll Up, which is off their most recent album called Everybody Wants. The high intensity of Spillers vocals collaborated perfectly in sync with Davies insane drumming and Slack and Elliots guitar skills. With that just being the beginning of the night, it sure had a majority of the crowd on their feet.

Along with each song on the set list, fans were provided with eye entertaining visuals that were full of life and creativity just on their own which helped in making the crowd experience each song on so many different levels.

The bands album Everybody Wants is available now including the hits “Kiss This” and “Could Have Been Me” which has reached the top five on alternative – rock radio and scored close to 9 million plays on Spotify!

If you have not checked this band out…do so and better yet try to catch them LIVE because I think a huge part of who they are is their stage presence and incredible performance!
