Bite of Las Vegas

Desert Breeze Park, Oct. 15

Of the 11 bands that performed on two stages—including Imagine Dragons, Avalon Landing, Mat Kearney, The Cab and O.A.R.—my two favorites were chanteuses Colbie Callait and Michelle Branch.

Callait is at her best when it’s just her voice and her guitar, and that’s what we got for most of her set. The crowd swayed to the soothing sounds of her new single, “All of You.”

Branch, who has been off the map for the last few years, gave a killer comeback performance. Wearing her usual floppy hat and hippie clothes, she sang fan favorites “Goodbye to You,” “All You Wanted” as well as her new single “Loud Music.”

Both ladies had fans off their blankets and dancing along with festival food in hand.

G-Blest

By Carl Winder

With passionate words of inspiration and testimony, local Christian rapper G-Blest (real name Gary Ward) transcended the often negative stereotypes associated with rap. He performed in celebration of his new album, I Am Blest, while the Sean Killingsworth Band provided a rock-based foundation. Some people put their hands in air, while others formed a small mosh pit as G-Blest delivered songs with fire and passion. The large crowd was then provided with glow sticks, turning the church into a swaying rainbow.
