Concert Review: The Cab & The Summer Set at The Beacham

As the Everything’s Fine Symphony Soldier tour made its way through Orlando on it’s 9th stop of the tour, I could feel the energy building in The Beacham venue. The Orlando stop was originally scheduled to be at The Social, but sold out that venue and was moved to The Beacham. The five-band tour includes headliners The Cab and The Summer Set, as well as He Is We, Days Difference, and Paradise Fears.
The opening acts (Paradise Fears, Days Difference, and He Is We) immediately felt the love of the crowd. The energy and applause grew louder with every song from every band. Out of the three bands that kicked off the show, He Is We stuck out the most to me. He Is We, an indie pop band signed to Universal Motown Records, had a large crowd show for their performance and seemingly every person in the venue knew the words to their songs. The high-energy guitarists and smooth vocals of Rachel Taylor really made this band stick out. Towards the end of their set, Brian Dales, the lead singer of The Summer Set, joined the band to perform a song along side Taylor.
The opening acts were through and it was on to the headliners. The Summer Set came to the stage with a very fast-paced set, filled with great music. The band played the majority of the songs off their new album Everything’s Fine. Following The Summer Set was The Cab, and the building was packed. When lead singer Alexander DeLeon walked onto the stage, fans erupted with excitement. The Cab opened up with “Angel With A Shotgun” which is the first song on their newest album Symphony Soldier, released in August of last year. Mid way through their performance, the band left the stage, except for DeLeon and keyboard/guitarist/vocalist Alex Marshall, and the duo played a short acoustic set including their popular song off their first album Whisper War, titled “Vegas Skies”. When all was said and done, the band made sure they stuck around after their performance to say hi to all of their fans and show their appreciation for the support.
Overall, every band had a fantastic performance, and I thoroughly enjoyed covering this event. Everybody be sure to check out all of these great bands, and tell your friends about the Everything’s Fine Symphony Soldier Tour.
