BMFs mission is unique – keep the FUN in playing music while learning the skills to be in a band. Here is my personal list of five inspiring live shows that embody that spirit.
1. Mumford and Sons
Saw these guys play live at an outdoor festival right when they were on the brink of becoming huge and I don’t think I’ve ever seen more sweat on a stage. They, along with the crowd had a blast.
2. Ben Folds
If you want to genuinely get a laugh while still getting music from the heart, this is the guy to see.
Hailing from Scotland, I may have seen this band every time they came to the US. Their songs are heartfelt and their love of playing is clear. I think I spent every show on my feet the entire time.
4. Arcade Fire
I’ve never seen a band put as much into playing live like this band. Big sound, even bigger love for what they are doing for a living.
5. The Killers
I know what you are thinking- they seem to take themselves too seriously to be on my list of fun bands. But I’m telling you – this guy smiles the entire time.
