You know when you find a great new band, and you’re so excited you want to tell everyone you know / strangers on the street about them? Right now for us, that band is THE HEYDAZE. They just played their second-ever headlining show in Friday night, in front of a sold-out hometown crowd at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre. It’s remarkable that less than a year ago, THE HEYDAZE did not exist. The band works so well together, and has the stage presence of a group that’s been doing this for years. We’re sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from these guys in 2015 and beyond.
THE HEYDAZE is Jesse Fink (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Spelman (lead guitar), Andrew Underberg (keyboards, production), and Alexander Glantz (drums). The band played a high-energy set that had everyone dancing from start to finish. Seriously, a HEYDAZE show is one big party. Their upbeat, guitar-driven pop sound make it impossible to not sing and dance along, even if it’s your first time hearing them. They write extremely catchy songs with original melodies, smart lyrics, and a sense of humor.
The band introduced some new music, including “Dumb” and “Side Effects,” which have been stuck in our heads since the concert. The set also included their cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs,” which was a hit with an audience that grew up on 90s music.
For the encore, the band sat at the end of the stage for an acoustic performance of “The Alphabet Song,” and ended the night with their first single, “Little Bandit.” They’ve accomplished so much in the short time since the track was released, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for the talented group.
