HIN First Look: Keep Your Head Up

By Jessica Rojas 09.27.2011 blog

Last night I got to see Andy Grammer live on stage. The Times Square theater where he performed was an amazing venue — there was so much energy, so many people and so many sounds. I knew as soon as I walked in I was in for a treat. It was a packed house full of all types of fans waiting to hear Andy Grammer and headliner Colbie Caillat.

Andy was so excited to be on stage I think if he could, he would have jumped into the crowd. He was that happy to perform for us…and particularly to be playing in New York (which he mentioned was his hometown). He even played his own version of Empire State of Mind. The crowd went crazy over this and really just crazy over Andy. The audience showed their enthusiasm singing along, clapping, and all out dancing. It was a party.

The rest of the set included Fine By Me, The Pocket, Miss Me, a cover of Maroon 5’s Sunday Morning, Biggest Man in LA, Ladies, Love Love Love, Lunatic, and Keep Your Head Up. All were crowd-pleasers.

After his set, he took the time out to meet his fans and sign autographs. He took pictures with his own camera and asked that everyone tag themselves on his Facebook page. Bassist Zach and drummer Mike also hung out and chatted with fans.

I am so glad I was able to attend the concert since I wasn’t able to meet him at CBS studios with Kristen Brody (she’s in the pic with the camera), who shot an upcoming pop quiz with Andy and an acoustic rendition of Keep Your Head Up. That video will be available soon. For now, you can watch his official video for the song right here.
