First off let me say the Top Hat has not had a show like this ever. Yes, they have had more people in the Top Hat, packed should to shoulder. Yes, they have had bigger names their where the ticket price was much steeper. Yes, they have had better instrumental musicians, but no they have not had a performance like that with all aspects of a great show covered. I’m talking energy, sound quality, lights, on stage presence, changing it up, controlling the crowd, escalating the show from start to finish, and anything else you can think of.

The disco
funk came alive from the get go. BoomBox quickly got on stage and wasted no time throwing the lights in our face, starting the electronic dance beat, and busting out the mad guitar riffs. The first song came unexpected to me; I went in not realizing how much this electronic duo loves to get their jam on. Not a word was spoken in the first song, only warming the crowd up and doing everything possible to melt your face funk style, while blowing the house off with dub beats. Then after a few songs the classic and show launcher “Who Killed Davey Moore” was played in an all out jam. It seemed to bring the show to a whole different level. It got louder, people started dancing more, and the lights started going even crazier and more vibrant. From this point on the Top Hat was complete awesome mayhem with some tribal drum solos, funkier piano, and upgrade guitar shredding. This eventually all lead up to the last song of the night, which was jammed as hard and as loud as possible with strobe lights in your face making you forget where you were. It was the best way to end it before sending you back to reality.

Hailing from the southern parts of America and seeming to love to play at only the best ski towns, it was only right that BoomBox came to the great city of Missoula and showed their stuff. They left a great impression on a music loving town that is open to artists trying new styles, and that is exactly what BoomBox is doing, experimenting. They are taking the ever growing popular dub-step and adding live real instruments to the mix, it is a deadly combination that is shaping up to be the future of music. One thing to expect is a lot more instrumental jamming then you hear on the Cds, but you will not hear me complaining about that. Well Played BoomBox, Well Played!!
