As soon as I saw that Shakey Graves was coming back to Orlando, I knew I had to be there. There’s just an unspoken magic that bubbles up throughout his show and it transports you to the world he’s created through his songs.
The Austin-based musician absolutely held up to his reputation. The crowd was enchanted by the rhythm and everyone seemed to be giving back the same energy he was giving off from the stage. Truly, what really made the whole performance were his little cordial chats in between songs. He not only is an extremely entertaining and talented musician, but also a really charming person.
He played a handful of songs, but far too few; I never really wanted it to end. If you have a chance to catch him and his talented band on this run, I highly reccomend you do!
