June got off to a great start at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook when The Band Perry brought their live show to the stage. This year has been a big year for Perry’s with their new album “Pioneer” that was released in the spring and a slot on the Rascal Flatts tours this summer. “Pioneer” is a bit more hard edged then their self titled debut album “The Band Perry”. Siblings, Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry bring that hard edge to their live shows. This is the third year in a row that I was able to catch and photograph this band and I can say that they have grown into their roles on stage. Seeing them for the first time in 2011 opening for Tim McGraw and in 2012 opening for Brad Paisley, they have had great experience and exposure to build their craft to where they are now.
Opening the show was season 3 winner of the Voice, Cassadee Pope. There is good reason why Cassadee was the winner on the Voice……….What a voice she has. As a new act to the stage, Pope seemed to have a pretty big fan base already. I think this is one talent to be on the look for.
The Band Perry played most of the tracks of that new album “Pioneer” such as “Better Dig Two” and “Done” which have been huge singles for them. The Perry’s and the entire band put everything they have into their live shows. This is one band that can keep you on your feet for the entire show as they did this night at Meadowbrook. They also included their hits from their first album such as “You Lie” and If I Die Young” which the crowd sang and over powered the band at times.
Do yourself a favor and catch The Band Perry live this summer. You can catch them on tour with Rascal Flatts this summer.
