What can I say, I knew I was in for a great night knowing The Band Camino was coming to Dallas. Being a band that I have been listening to for a few years now, there isn’t a song by them that I didn’t like. The whole way to The Factory in Deep Ellum, I was giddy with anticipation because I couldn’t wait to sing their songs live. They were joined by the bands flor and Hastings. Everyone in the room was pumped with anticipation, about to have the time of their lives. Let’s dive into the show.

Starting off the show was Hastings. Right out of the gate, they ran into some technical difficulties that delayed their performance. It seemed as if their computer wasn’t wanting to connect to the sound system, so once fixed, they only had enough time for three songs.  I could see how this might disappoint some fans, but it wasn't their fault and didn’t get us down. The moment they figured it out, it was game time, and they really brought the energy to the stage. The three songs they chose included “Blank Me”, “Chapstick”, and “Take Mine”, and all were fantastic. This was my first time seeing them and when they come back through, I will be there.

Next up was flor and boy did they come in hot. They really gave off that exciting 80s vibe with their stage appearance. The lead singer, Zach Grace, was such a great front man to watch while shooting from the photo pit. Being a band that I also had never heard prior to the show, I was again catching myself really enjoying their vibe and music. The Band Camino really did a great job picking the bands they brought on this tour and all complimented them in amazing ways. Some of the songs I really enjoyed from them were “hold on”, “dancing around”, and “back again”. I really can’t wait to see them again.

Finally it was time for the main attraction, The Band Camino. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a headliner in a long time. This being the largest show they have ever played (with estimated attendance of nearly  4500 people), I had a sneaky suspicion this performance was going to amazing and possibly one of the best I’ve ever seen. Given the number of songs that are 100% hits, the crowd would surely be singing the entire time and they did not disappoint during the epic 20-song setlist. Jeffery Jordan, one of their lead singers, gave us all of his energy on stage as was running around and jumping constantly. What was super neat about them was having two lead singers, and that was something I didn’t realize before. Spencer Stewart really did a great job complimenting Jeffery’s voice on stage. They went on to play some of my favorite songs like “2/14”, “Who Do You Think You Are?”, “See Through”, and even gave Dallas an exclusive performance of “Crying Over You” that hasn’t been played on any other date. Closing out the show with one of their biggest songs, “Daphne Blue”, The Band Camino made everyone’s evening a night to remember.

The Band Camino’s Thursday night performance performance was electric and had the Dallas crowd going wild. All of the opening bands were incredible and brought an amazing amount of energy to the night. If you get a chance, make sure to catch this tour – it’s just that good.
