Quote of the Day:
“Who knew Hollywood Ending would be capable of waking up at 4:30am for a flight?”
The Musical Showcase continued last night in Celebration, FL with RD’s Annual Holiday Concert.
Opening the show was Orlando’s own Tayler Buono who was backed by live 4-piece band. She began the set with her summer upbeat single, Lucky In Love. The set continued with a solid performance by the band and some great vocals by Tayler with the highlight being her new single, I Like. To close out her set, she performed It’ll Only Get Better from her upcoming EP, due out in January.
While Tayler had a good showing of support from the locals, it was interesting to see she also had fans that had come all the way from Atlanta, GA to see her.

Next up it was After Romeo making their second appearance in the Orlando area and it was obvious they brought something different to the stage as it literally rocked to their choreography for Superhuman. They dished up just about everything you’d want from a boyband and as expected Drew Ryan Scott’s vocals were as good as gets… and that TC was so dreamy. The group borrowed a classic boyband routine by bringing up five lucky ladies for A Song About You (can you say Selfie). Fans also got a rare treat by getting to hear their new track Save Me Some Snow from their new EP, We’re Coming Home. It was followed by the ballad Meet Me In My Dreams which was definitely a great exhibition of the groups vocals. After Romeo finished out the show with their first Radio Disney single, Love On Lock.

After the show, Tayler and After Romeo had a meet and greet that gave fans the opportunity to get a photo with them (no autographs). It required wristbands, but they weren’t exactly sticklers at enforcing that as some fans had the opportunity to go through twice.
Overall it was a decent show, but lacked the energy and audience from the previous week. Attendance was down approximately 50 percent. For those keeping record, Peggy Iafrate wins… I told you she would.
