Baroque Pop: The Family Crest at The Crescent Ballroom (February 8, 2016)

The Family Crest at The Crescent Ballroom (February 8, 2016)

The cello starts with the fantastic melody from “Beneath the Brine.” It’s instantly recognizable to fans of The Family Crest and they immediately begin to dance around. Soon the rest of the band joins in on bass, drums, keyboard, trombone, and violin. Then comes the emotional vocals to top off the excellently constructed song.  Later, at the climax of “Love Don’t Go”, the whole crowd is singing along collectively with the band. It’s a fantastic moment to participate in.

The set includes many instrumental breakdowns. Two solos by the trombone player and the violinist respectively are highlights of the night. The songs feature a lot of slow builds into high intensity climaxes. The vocal range of the lead singer, Liam McCormick, makes this possible and is done impressively.
