Mumford & Sons

With a full moon looming overhead, nothing could burst the bubble of sing-along euphoria taking place at the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool on April 15 when Mumford & Sons delivered a memorable 15-song set for a capacity crowd. Marcus Mumford set the tone early as he wailed away on his guitar during the title track of the band’s Sigh No More album. If “Roll Away Your Stone” skyrocketed the energy level, then “Little Lion Man” set the raucous crowd on fire. Mumford sat in on drums for “Lover of the Light,” one of a handful of new songs mixed into the set. A great rendition of “Dust Bowl Dance” before the encore break and slick cover of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel” primed everyone for an intense version of “The Cave,” which may have induced flashbacks of their Grammy performance earlier this year. At one point in the show, Mumford hollered at folks watching from their hotel room balconies. “You having a nice time up there? Get off your high horse and come party with us.” A true statement, and definitely a party you didn’t want to miss.
