Last night, Honor Society‘s Fashionably Late Tour paid a visit to The Rutledge in Nashville, TN. And… just like other previous shows, it was Fashionable Late. Doors opened a full hour behind schedule.
Starting things off, fans were in for a first as the Fashionably Late tour featured Dutch pop star Esmee Denters, who will be opening for Honor Society the rest of their tour. Not only was it her first night on the tour, but also her 21st Birthday! Just like many opening nights, the sound was significantly off with the vocals and guitar mixes significantly lower than they should’ve been. Odds are that this will be fixed shortly. Seeing her backed by a three piece band was a treat, although visually they didn’t do much to energize her set. Her cover of Eyes For You was full of energy as well of her single Outta Here.
Esmee Denters – Runtime 24 Minutes
Pros: Your first chance to see an original YouTube star in the states with a live band.
Cons: Backup band’s performance wasn’t visually up to par. The most excited they were to jam was after Esmee walked off stage.
Best song: Eyes For You
1. My Destiny
3. Just Can’t Have It
4. Eyes For You (Cover)
6. Outta Here
One thing’s for sure, in the last week Honor Society has ironed out many of the wrinkles from the opening night of the tour. This time, from the first note to the last they were on. Each member was exceptional and Michael continues to show his gift with nearly flawless vocals, backed with strong passion for each song. In addition, you can’t help but love what Alexander brings to the show. One thing was very obvious with this show – Honor Society are miles from being labeled a “new act”, but instead should be considered a seasoned band with very talented musicians and capable of displaying an energy on stage that you can’t teach.
In the middle of the set, it was hinted that there was a special guest at the show and the song Here Comes Trouble was dedicated to her. It was none other than Jessie James…. and yeah, she’s a pistol! Also in attendance was Zach Carter of the Carter Twins, Jordan Pruitt was on the guest list but apparently didn’t show.
Unfortunately, there were still some issues with the tracks. The background vocals went out during Over You and Michael deserves credit for quickly asking the crowd to sing along (to cover it up). Definitely the low point of the night occurred when they performed a cover You Really Got Me by The Kinks. The backing tracks failed to play during the opening riff which exposed the fact Jason’s guitar was barely audible with the track being about 75% louder than what was actually being played “live.”
Honor Society – Runtime 58 Minutes
Pros: Amazing performance
Cons: The act is no longer meeting with fans. I doubt the group is to blame for this but their careers are going to get much worse, before getting better with this policy.
