Need To Breathe at Red Rocks 2015

NEEDTOBREATHE, Switchfoot & Drew Holcomb at Red Rocks

We have been lucky at Red Rocks this summer; most nights have been breezy and warm. If it rained, it was light or happened earlier than showtime. The Tour de Compadres was no exception, and we were treated to gorgeous music with a crescent moon hanging back behind the crowd.

Up first was Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, a band who was new to me, but has been around since 2005. Drew has an amazing voice, while backed by an great group of musicians. They return to Denver in Spring 2016 and I hope to catch them again.

I unabashedly love Switchfoot and lead singer Jon Foreman is a definitely crowd-pleaser. He was all over the stage and then up into the risers, enticing everyone to wave back and forth with him in rhythm. (That’s quite a sight in a 10,000 person venue.) The whole band was having a blast, you could just tell.

NEEDTOBREATHE felt a bit more moody, with dark lights and a harder edge to their Christian rock. I had never seen them before and every single one are clearly talented musicians. With fantastic guitar, keyboard, drums and yes, harmonica, absolutely killing it… they again had all 10,000+ fans on their feet. (This show was beyond sold out.)

I have to tell you, Mr. Bear Rinehart, it’s incredibly hard for a photographer to shoot singers with big hats on, but you sure were fun.

The Compadres tour has wrapped up, but Need To Breathe has shows into the fall – including another stop in Colorado on October 1st.
