We cannot believe that it’s been over a month since Pyramid Park launched Vulnerability. And what an evening it was. We want to relive it as much as possible so I’ve broken down the evening into the various aspects that made it the spectacular experience that it was. I thought it would be good to get some audience perspective to. Thanks to those who contributed their insights!
Don’t forget that you can still order or download the album if you haven’t already. Get a sneak peak on Spotify HERE.
Where was I? Oh yes… the Launch.
Honestly, the first thing you noticed when entering the auditorium was the giant Pyramid. Lit up in all it’s glory, the creative merch stand was brilliant imagery.
The massive pyramid was an amazing and unique idea.
The lighting created a great atmosphere as well. There was a brilliant balance between the concept of a casual gig and a significant event for the band. It was clear from the engagement of the audience that they were there to whole heartedly support Pyramid Park as they set off on their new adventure with this album.
We also can’t forget to mention the fan-made-stop-motion-music-video-photo-boot. This was an ingenious idea to get the crowd engaged with the album on a whole other level.
THE SUPPORTING ACTS:
Pyramid Park could not have chosen two better acts to get the crowd going.
Judah, a local artist who did a fantastic mix of original music and covers, set the tone with his smooth, deep voice and brilliant stage presence. Check out his music HERE.
Tom McConnell, a London based musician brought an eclectic style of music and performance. From classic Disney to intimate worship, the audience was taken on a journey and ultimately hyped up for the main event. Tom’s music is available on Spotify and is well worth a listen.
I thought it best to get the audience’s perspective on the band and their performance. My personal favourite was the encore when the band performed The Voice. I was not alone on this opinion.
From the atmosphere to the decor, the night was amazing. The sound and lighting set the mood perfectly and were a winning combination, particularly with epic sounds like that of The Voice which blew the audience away in the encore
All in all, the band did a fantastic job of taking the audience through the journey of the album. It was great to hear some of Pete McAllen’s songs like Enemies from his album I hear your voice (also available on Spotify).
Thinking back, you realise that the a launch is literally a starting point for something. It’s the opportunity for a band to engage with its fans and introduce them to the music the way the band wants them to feel and know it. Pyramid Park did this in an incredible way that night. When I listen to the album I don’t just hear the recorded version that’s available to me. I remember seeing the bands excitement and passion as they played, I hear the heart and soul of the vocalists and the joy with which they sang. I remember the shared laughs as little hiccups were overcome and that the band left everything they had on the stage for us.
And now the album is out there for the world to hear and the next part of the journey begins. We would be nowhere without the fans and we are always grateful for your time and attention. Thanks for staying the course with us.
Let the adventure continue.
