A Big Sea of Greatness

Mike and I went to see one of, in my opinion, the *best* live bands around. Great Big Sea knows how to put on a really, really good show. These guys are so energetic and genuinely happy to be on stage. They get the audience involved – as soon as the show starts, everyone is up on their feet “bouncing their bits” (their words, not mine – but funny 😉 ), singing along, and clapping so much that your hands are ringing by the end of the night. They do two full sets and then two encores. At one point I was looking around the audience (old, young, middle) and realized that almost everyone had the same goofy grin on their face as I did…you can’t help it!

I was introduced to GBS just under 10 years ago. The first album I heard was their live one – Road Rage. I HIGHLY recommend this one – definitely their best one by far…you can feel the energy pouring from the CD.

Their best song though is Sea of No Cares…which actually isn’t on that album.

(The music video – 3:35)

This is the second show Mike and I have been to – and we vowed last night to try to catch them every time they’re in town. Yes. They are THAT good. And while both shows were pretty different, they both ended the same way: singing Old Brown’s Daughter, a Capella. I took video with my phone, but YouTube isn’t cooperating – so perhaps I’ll get it on here at some point.

  1. Sounds like a blast! My favorite band live is Barenaked Ladies, and it sounds like for similar reasons – because they just seem like they’re really enjoying themselves! I like what I’ve heard of Great BIg Sea, may have to add them to my list…

  2. What a great time! My daughter, gabi, happened to be in the room with me when I clicked on the video and she said, ” Is that Great Big sea?” She was very excited to see that I have such “cool” blogging buddies 🙂

  3. Where have I been? Not listening to music, obviously. I haven’t heard of Great Big Sea…but now I know who they are. That’s a start, right?

  4. Maybe you can play a few songs for Husband and me next weekend. He’s always on the prowl for new music. He’s devoted to Pandora online.
