The Grammy nominated and ever popular Plain White T’s performed before a very excited audience at the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater on Fri., Jan 12 in Peekskill, NY.
Throughout the two-hour show, the band encouraged the crowd to sing along and dance to their songs and before long they had almost the entire house moving with the rhythm.
“I liked learning the songs I didn’t know, exposing me to stuff I really didn’t’ know existed beforehand,” Patron Peter Collins said.
The PWT performed most of their well-known music like “1, 2, 3, 4,” “Rhythm of Love,” and “American Nights,” Much to the audience’s surprise, the band performed their never-before-released song “Nobody” from their upcoming album, which will be released the Summer of this year. Lead singer Tom Higgenson promised that the new album will be the best one they have ever created.
“I really enjoyed their new song,” Collins said. “I’m looking forward to the album when it comes out in the summer.”
Most of the crowd grew up listening to the Plain White T’s and couldn’t resist an opportunity to see them perform live.
“Since middle school and high school, we’ve been listening to the Plain White T’s and they just happened to be performing so close to where we live, and just we had to see them,” Patron Amanda Daru said
Patrons were ultimately very impressed by the band’s performance.
“The lead singer’s voice is fantastic, very high energy, I think they sound even better live than they do on their records,” Patron Marjorie Irwin said.
The Chicago-based band Fairview opened for the Plain White T’s, which the audience greatly enjoyed as well.
“Fairview was excellent too, my family is from Chicago, so that made it extra special,” Patron Jace McEwan said.
The PWT ended the show with none other than their Grammy nominated single “Hey There Delilah” which had the audience in an ecstatic uproar. Higgenson also called Fairview onto stage while they performed the hit song.
