ARANDA – Cains Ballroom

aranda concert review at cains ballroom tulsa

The guys in Aranda are some of the most down to earth and cool dudes you will ever meet. They love their fans and are very appreciative of everything that has come their way. These guys deserve enormous success and by the looks of their show the other night they are going to get just that. They killed it for the whole hour they were on stage. These guys were all over the stage playing all of their hits and even some deeper cuts off of their first album. They kicked off their set with the hard rocking “Upside Of Vanity”and had the crowd in a frenzy. I always love seeing these guys live because they play with such emotion and obviously love what they do. The Next song I want to touch on is “Gravity”. This is such a great song with powerful lyrics. It slowed things down just a bit and they had the crowd in the palm of their hands the whole time. They played their hit “Undone” which is one of my very favorite songs! That riff in the song is killer and really sets the tone for Gabe to show off his vocals. The Highlight of the night was when they played their breakup hit “Satisfied”. Dameon takes lead on this song and sings it with such passion and the crowd knew every word here. It was a highlight of the night. My personal favorite song of the night was the big hit “Still In The Dark”, a slower acoustic song that just builds and builds into this epic track, especially live! By the end of the show Aranda did “Das Boot” where Dameon takes off his boot and Gabe holds up the guitar while Dameon plays slide guitar with his boot. They actually told us a really funny story about one time when they did this in New Mexico (check out our interview below). So these guys just kill it every single time I see them. They will only continue to get bigger and bigger and I can’t wait to see them headline arenas one day!  (David Rader)
