There are tons of bands that sound great on their records, but then sound sort of bland when you see them in concert. It is not any fun to watch a dull band, so it is important for your optimum concert going experience that you make sure you go to see bands that are great in live shows. One band that fits that bill is alternative rock band Switch foot. They have huge amounts of energy that permeates the audience and ensures everyone has a great time. Often all three of the band's guitarists will perform at once, rather than doing guitar solos. This can be a lot of fun to watch.
Switchfoot hails from San Diego, California, so it makes sense that they are named after a surfing term. Switchfoot is the word for when you switch your feet on the board in order to change directions. The band members are all big surf fans, so that is why they chose the name. The members are Tim Foreman and his brother Jon Foreman, Jerome Fontamillas, Drew Shirley, and Chad Butler on drums.
The band has had an interesting transition in terms of their musical genres. While they started out in Christian rock , now they are more known as alternative rock. They use a lot of synthesizers and have a patented "Switchfoot sound," which is a mixture of different melodies and electronic sounds, punctuated by guitar riffs. Their sound first got into the mainstream on the soundtrack to the movie A Walk to Remember, which starred Mandy Moore. The band went on to have hit songs like Dare you to Move.
The band's last album was called Hello Hurricane and "hurricane" is a metaphor the way their sound comes at the listener, fast and strong. If you are a big fan of Switchfoot, you definitely should see them live in concert. You can get tickets here at EventTicketDepot.
