Bear Rinehart. Easily one of the best frontmen in music today. From his band Needtobreathe to his newest project, Wilder Woods, Rinehart knows how to engage a crowd through his words and his dance moves.
At his sold-out Sunday night show in the tiny Workplay Theatre, Rinehart played through the entire Wilder Woods debut album and told stories about his life. Some of those being about his wife Mary who was “the hottest woman in t his room tonight” and his sons Wilder and Woods, who are the namesakes of his current endeavor.
Hearing the small room echo the words to his new album was something that can never be replicated unless you manage to catch a show. Even then, something about 450 people squished together in a tiny room just made the entire experience better.
If you can catch a show on the remainder of this tour, do it. You will not regret it.
