April 18th, 2014 at Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, CA. —
BlackBox13 is a hard rock band that hails from Las Vegas, Nevada. Opening for The Dreaming at the Whisky a Go Go on April 18th, BlackBox13 played a rocking set for all of the night’s enthusiastic concert goers. With deep vocals and a very spirited hard sound, BlackBox13 put on a brilliant performance that definitely caught the crowd’s attention. The band featured a great chemistry between each of the members, often partnering up to play together, a bond that is quite apparent! The music was reminiscent of many of the greatest rock bands in existence, but this band certainly put their own twist on it, to mention inspirations would be to taint the experience. As someone who had not heard the music before, the first impression was definitely a great one, and that impact continues to this day.
Vocalist Joshua Scott wore his passion for the band on his sleeve, with very fervent vocals. There is definitely a glint of humor in his eyes, which reflected a light hearted fun that musicians should have! Joe and Cory on their respectable instruments played with a skill not often found in the industry nowadays, with impressive and difficult melodies! Drummer Todd definitely rocked out on his kit, keeping the beat going!
