Bethany Home

Beloved locals Bethany Home band opened the show at Rebel, a treat just for Phoenix fans.  The crowd was absolutely ecstatic when the band hit the stage.  Their classic indie-west-coast sound was a really great way to start the show. They have a great stage presence, keeping the show engaging and making it that much more fun. Many people who were sitting in the back stood up to see what the band was about, and those on their feet were jumping and dancing. A good majority of the people in the crowd already knew the boys and were excited to sing along. 

Diva Bleach

Joining the band on tour, Diva Bleach got to rock their hometown for this stop of the tour. The crowd was electric as the girls ran onto stage. There was jumping and dancing and screaming along from the excited audience. Bassist/Vocalist Sydney Roten has a great ability to connect with her crowd, finding perfect moments to get them hype. It was all smiles and high energy from the entire band, dancing with each other and engaging with the crowd. The band really enjoys what they do and they enjoy doing it together. 

44 Blonde

Dressed in a ‘Proud to be an America’ cut off muscle tee, and a cap with pigtail braids falling out, 44 Blonde took the stage. The sound that followed was not at all what I was expecting. He has a sort of early Post Malone sound, with a bit more of an indie twang. He and his band, while not entirely rowdy, brought a lot of fun. His guitar player Grady is from Phoenix, and his family came to watch him. To everyone’s surprise, Grady’s dad joined the band on stage for a cover of “Sweet Home Alabama”. Despite never hearing 44 Blonde before, his set was really entertaining.

Young Rising Sons

Rebel Lounge stood in darkness and anticipation as the men of Young Rising Sons took the stage. This band definitely knows how to rock a crowd.  Andy Togren, guitarist and lead vocalist, spent many moments singing along with some diehard fans in the front row, and the smile as he did it was priceless. Bassist Julian Dimagiba and drummer Steve Patrick very well might be best friends, constantly laughing and basically playing their instruments with each other. Max Lantorno definitely didn’t lack any energy either, playing his guitar with a passion, almost as if he was lost in the music. The entire band is not only insanely talented, but also loves being on stage, and the crowd loved them back.
