The Glorious Sons’ concert at the Scotiabank Arena can be rightly described as an explosive, high energy performance by the Juno nominated Canadian rockers. The music, the stage, the crowd, the lights - everything perfectly amalgamated together to give the audience an experience of their lifetime. Toronto rockers “The Beaches” opened for the TGS and warmed up the audience with their groovy alternative rock style music. Before the concert I only knew a couple of songs by the beaches but after seeing them performing live now I am a fan. The all-girl band rocked the crowd with their stage presence and music. Sometimes I feel like I don’t see enough girl rockers on stage so I was really happy and it was a refresher. When TGS took over the stage Scotiabank Arena was full. One of the largest venues in Toronto was sold out and the band exceeded their fans every expectations by taking everyone’s musical consciousness to a higher level. Front man Brett Emmons is so good at performing live that it’s hard to imagine he would be doing anything else with his life but be a singer of a kickass rock band. Running from left to right, cheering and rocking with the almost 20,000 audience throughout the concert, Brett’s energy is simply infectious. His orange pants and blue shirt is almost a symbol of how the band does not conform to the mainstream. The music does not have any fancy external vocal or guitar effects or DJ machines to add to their music like many other rock bands have these days. TGS is a simple rock band with guitar, drums and bass along with a harmonica played by Brett on some songs. They do have a touring keyboard player but its simple keys without any external, fancy effects. This simplicity of basic instruments played by friends who love to play music and have a good time - make The Glorious Sons unique. The audience can simply relate TGS as the band that is always having a good time. I can’t wait to see them again
