Even if you don’t recognize the name, you have certainly heard an Andy Grammer song or two. His pop anthems can be found everywhere. From the sporty “Don’t Give Up On Me” to the thought-provoking “Damn It Feels Good To Be Me,” Grammer’s music is pervasive and we’re all a little better for it.
Grammer’s music is pop and fun and unabashedly positive. It’s hard not to have a great time at an Andy Grammer show. Last Monday, Grammer brought The Art of Life Tour to SF’s Regency Ballroom. Grammer throws a hell of a party and those lucky enough to catch the fun were in for a treat. The music was fun and full of positive messages.
The Art of Life Tour is aptly named as Grammer celebrated both art and life that night. As upbeat and positively-charged as his music, Grammer is a sight on stage. He’s charismatic, engaging and sounds as great as he does on his albums. Ever the showman, Grammer started his set with a spoken word version of his song, “Damn It Feels Good To Be Me.” Locking eyes with as much as the front row as possible, Grammer encouraged self-worth and great vibes while strutting in front of a piano. He flowed into the musical rendition of the track accompanied by a horn section. The sound was grand and uplifting.
Given the current state of the world, this show was definitely a must-see for those who need a pick-me up. Grammer is lively, a lot of fun and will bring a smile to your face. Definitely worth seeing him live!
