Colours and Andy Black Do Not Disappoint


By Alyssa Robbins

After about an hour of hearing the crowd scream, “Andy! Andy! Andy!” on Saturday May 28th the crowd was not disappointed when the opener, Colours went on. Colours was definitely a hard opener to beat. They got everyone up and dancing with their electronic, R&B rock sound. Colours is a two-man band. The singer is Kyle Tamo, who was even nice enough to let me interview him (see below) and Morgan Alley, the drummer.

Even though the opener was so amazing and got the crowd up and moving, the headliner, Andy Black performed his heart out. He did not let down any fans. It was totally worth the wait.

Black opened with the song¬†Stay Alive, closed with They don’t need to Understand, and had an encore with We don’t have to Dance.

Both bands were very thankful for everyone coming out. They thanked everyone after each song and were able to tell a joke in between, too.

Colours and Andy Black were both breathtaking. I can’t wait to see both of them again in concert.
