whysowhite – Live Minneapolis 4/19/12

April 19, 2012

I can’t think of anything more thrilling than seeing a tight young band  hungry as wolves.  whysowhite, a Chicago band, road tripped from Chicago to Minneapolis today after a sold-out gig in their home town to play a sparse crowd at a University of Minnesota Spring Jam outdoor frat party.  Despite a small crowd, a cold night, and scant sleep, whysowhite worked the crowd into a thermonuclear sweat and performed like they were on the main stage at Lollapalooza with a crowd of 25K.

The band mixes rock, funk and hip-hop into an amazingly satisfying stew.  They have three great vocalist who are spitting raps one second and singing falsetto the next.  They are great musicians and great performers.  They perform mostly originals, but spice it up with delightfully surprising covers (Leo Sayer and Outkast).

This is a band deserving of a break – they have it all – great songs, great arrangements, great performance skills and most of all a genuine rock and roll heart.  Good luck boys!

PS – these boys are at the point in their career where they are warming up for other performers – too bad for the headliner, you don’t want to follow this act!
