Sammy Rae & The Friends Delight The Majestic

We had the pleasure of attending the Sammy Rae & The Friends concert at the Majestic Theatre in Detroit, Michigan on September 27th, 2023, and it was an electrifying and outstanding performance.


From the moment they stepped on stage, it was clear that the band was in sync with the audience. It didn’t take long for the crowd to become completely immersed in the music. One of the aspects we appreciate most in a live performance is when a band interacts with its fans, and Sammy Rae & The Friends excelled in this department. The lead singer engaged the audience, encouraging them to sing along and even striking poses for the cameras. It was evident that they genuinely cared about connecting with their fans, making the night even more memorable.


The setlist was a fantastic mix of original tracks and well-chosen covers. They kicked things off with “Talk It Up,” a lively and infectious song that set the tone for the evening. “Kick It To Me” and “Living Room Floor” kept the energy high, and it was impossible not to get caught up in the groove. The band’s cover choices were also on point; their rendition of “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” by Jet and “Ooh La La” by Rod Stewart were both crowd-pleasers.


In conclusion, Sammy Rae & The Friends put on an unforgettable concert at the Majestic Theatre. Their exceptional energy, audience interaction, and skillful song choices created a memorable night for all in attendance. It’s clear that this band knows how to entertain and connect with their fans, and we can’t wait for the next opportunity to see them live. If you’re looking for a band that will genuinely engage with their audience and deliver a high-energy show, Sammy Rae & The Friends should be at the top of your list.
