I WAS THERE . . . The Blue Method 6/13/08
The Blue Method
June 13, 2008
After sitting through two terrible, hipster, indie-rock bands at Crash Mansion, I thought to myself, “The Blue Method better be as good as I remember them.” Luckily for us, they were better. Their bass and guitar lines were funkier, lead singer Brian Williams was fatter, his voice was more soulful, and their drums rocked even harder.
The Blue Method is a five-piece funk band out of Philadelphia that has a sound like a 10-piece ensemble. They opened with a couple tracks from their latest album, followed them up with a James Brown cover, and then played the funkiest version of Van Morrison’s “Caravan” I’ve ever heard by far. Vocalist Brian Williams is a big man with an even bigger voice whose energy and passion accentuates the band’s infectious on stage attitude.
Their live show featured a soulful mix of covers and original tracks off their two studio albums Kill the Music Vol. 1 and 2. With an incredibly tight sound, they will make you dance all night.
