The WFMS Summer Concert series has been so amazing, and Saturday; Sept. 9th the Chris Stapleton show was stellar! Lucie Silvas got the evening started with her powerful voice and soulful songs.
Anderson East wowed the slightly late-arriving crowd with a lot of energy. The young R&B singer brought to mind a combination of Joe Cocker and John Mayer with his raspy vocals as his band blared horns and rolled on organ. East set the stage for what was to come.
Right around 9pm Saturday night, Chris Stapleton took the stage along with wife Morgane and his band members, opening up the show with hits Nobody to Blame and Broken Halos as two of the first three songs of his set. Stapleton’s stage set up was simple, a conclave of cubes that reflected shimmering yellows and oranges, while continuously transitioning to mellow blues and purples. Stapleton introduced a brand new song that night halfway through his set, the bluesy “Tryin’ to Untangle My Mind,” to much enthusiasm and positive response from the crowd. Never letting the music sit silent for too long, Stapleton rolled through hits “Whiskey and You” and “Parachute” before launching into a cover of “Tuesday’s Gone.” Guitars, blues, soul and a jam-packed set of awesome tunes, that’s what Chris Stapleton and Co. brought with them to Noblesville on Saturday night.
