The Maine, an American rock band from Tempe, Arizona that formed on January 21, 2007 who continue to deliver quality Southern-fried pop rock.
Lead singer John O’Callaghan has the uncanny ability to captivate the crowd whilst the band, as a whole generate a relaxed and fun atmosphere, with Kennedy Brock, Jared Monaco, Garrett Nickelson and Pat Kirch all providing memorable and engaging moments during the delivery of a sound and accomplished pop-rock performance.
This time around saw The Maine displaying a slicker and more professional set – evidence of their 7 years worth of experience in the business. However, their sound and style retain a certain uniqueness makes them stand out from all others!!
The Maine always put on a great show and they did not disappoint tonight in Brighton. As always they made a point of including a lot of audience interaction which makes the show so much more enjoyable. The Maine take to the stage to have a good time, not just because music is their job, but because they are doing what they love with a mix of songs old and new that had the crowd up and on their feet and joining in the choruses with gusto and enthusiasm. The only downside was that the set was just too short – a headline tour is definitely needed!
The Maine continue to appreciate the fact that their success is thanks to their solid fan base and the smaller venue such as Concorde 2 tonight (Madeira Drive, Brighton) provided the band with the opportunity to get up close and personal to their fans, and for the fans to see them too. This is obviously so important to all of the band members who made a point of spending considerable time with their fans after the show! The music was great, the guys cool, accomplished and engaging – a winning combination!
