Following a huge 17-date US, Canada and Mexico tour and new releases Luv Is Not Enough and Restless,Miami Horror returned to home-soil this December for a six-date national tour. Finishing up at Adelaide’s very own Fat Controller Club, Miami Horror brought the funk, they brought the disco-energy and they brought their characteristic bass-line heavy groove in what was a lively night of dance and poppy electronica music.
Performing to a small yet passionate crowd on a hot summer night, Miami Horror flaunted an awesome playful chemistry and entertaining funk energy that cheekily enchanted the crowd. Both vocalists TC and Reva DeVito effortlessly captivated listeners with their vibrant voices and funky dance moves, and together added an empowering and cool, unique flair to their performance.
While the band encountered issues throughout the show with sound and volume composition, it did not appear to lessen any viewers enjoyment of the set. Drummer Rhythm Luna, keys player Daniel Whitechurch and guitarists Nic Michael and Benjamin Plant performed brilliant instrumental breaks throughout the gig that gave the performance an extra flair and edge that fans eagerly approved of.
My first-time witnessing Miami Horror live and I was happily surprised by the engagement and affection that the crowd possessed for this funky band. I was quickly left with the impression that fans were ultimately there for the music and the groove and I soon became a fan of this funky upbeat energy. Miami Horror live at Fat Controller Adelaide was a memorable, groove-filled night that has me eager and excited to witness what 2020 brings for this group with their forth-coming third album.
