Thursday night, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors came to The Warehouse in Fairfield to play a show, just like he had promised during his set with Darius Rucker in Bridgeport last summer.  The band is touring to support their most recent release, Strangers No More, and recently announced that Strangers No More Volume 2 would be coming out in September. (All the songs on Volume 2 were recorded at the same time as Volume 1).   “Find Your People” quickly became a favorite song of mine and it earned the band their first #1 Americana Single!  I was surprised to see that this was the song they chose to open the set with, but by the time the show was over it made perfect sense.  He quickly captured the audience and didn’t lose them until the last note.  Their latest single, “Suffering” didn’t come until much later in the set.  They closed the set out with “Dance with Everybody” which I’d been hearing on TV during a March Madness TV commercial!

The hour and a half set also included a cover of Fairfield native, John Mayer’s “Gravity” and an absolutely amazing cover of Adele’s “When We Were Young” which had Drew standing in the middle of the crowd.  He also called opener Donovan Woods on stage to join him for the song they wrote together “For Some Reason”.  The Warehouse was certainly rocking to close out the night by Dancing with Everybody – including Drew, who once again made his way in the crowd to, in fact, dance with everybody.

Another highlight included Drew calling over an adorable little girl who was rocking a very sparkly jacket and a Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors t-shirt to give her a vinyl from the band.  Also kudos to her parents for having her wear adorable pink noise canceling headphones throughout the show as well.

I am very much so looking forward to see what gems may be hidden on Strangers No More Volume 2, but for now I’ll continue spinning “Find Your People”, a song that very much so reminds me of my closest friends.

I received a free ticket to the show in exchange for this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
