The four-stop “April Fools” mini tour came as a surprise to many when Jukebox the Ghost announced they would be performing not one, but two sets at each of these locations: a set of originals and a set of covers.
Blue lights bathed the stage, and the three-man band took their places on stage downstairs at World Café Live. Poppy instrumentals and the smooth falsetto of Ben Thornewill echoed throughout the venue as they opened with the first single off Safe Travels, “Somebody.”
Jukebox the Ghost is a band that never fails to connect with the audience, make them laugh in between songs and create an overall comfortable and causal environment.
The energy pulsing through each band member is constant. From Jesse Kristin’s constant grin from behind the drum kit, to Tommy Siegel’s constant bobbing to the music and Thornewill’s ever-changing facial expressions interchanged with his ability to toss his body around while still managing to play the keyboard.
The band featured two songs off their newly recorded album (release date TBD), the second of which had yet to be heard by fans.
