Live Review Text
Florence Black hit the stage like dynamite, consistently incredible live. Prolific singer/songwriter Tristan Thomas (24, vocals, guitar) owns the room from the off with his huge voice, charismatic stage presence and astonishing technical ability. Tristan is partnered up front by the thunderous energy of Jordan Evans (26, backing vocals, bass) and backed by the rock solid grooves of Perry Davies (24, backing vocals, drums). All three musicians give explosive, highly physical performances that transfix the audience throughout. Florence Black are a must see live band.
Memorably beautiful melodies, crushing heavy riffs and retro vibes combine to create Florence Black’s MASSIVE live sound.
…Yes, there really are only three of them up there!..
