So I checked my Instagram today and I’m totally stoked that One Republic liked the photo (shown below) that I snapped on my phone and posted from the show at Mohegan last night. So cool. Megan Trainor couldn’t perform due to some voice issues, so some of the younger kids were a little upset early in the night, but One Republic was absolutely amazing and would have been the highlight of the night no matter who else was there. I have always liked their stuff when it came on the radio but until last night I really didn’t realize how solid of a band they really are. They’ve been at it for about a decade now, believe it or not, these guys are now seasoned pros. No auto-tune or cheap gimmicks and a ton of big hits to fill a set. Ryan Tedder seemed completely comfortable going from different guitars to a light up color changing piano and literally putting on different hats including a Santa hat from the audience. He really worked the crowd, stood on the piano, jumped into the audience singing. Just an unbelievable show. Hopefully when they come around next year I’ll have a chance to interview them!
