Trevor Hall Montreal Concert Review
By Sheila on September 08, 2011
Opening up for his friend
and occasional collaborator Matisyahu, Trevor Hall not only got the
crowd excited for his friend, he also ended up stealing the show.
Playing to a sold out Club Soda, Trevor made himself at home in front
of the Montreal crowd, rolling out a small rug in front of his microphone
stand while performing barefoot.
If you were asked to categorize
Trevor's music into a specific genre, it wouldn't be an easy task.
He has the ability to mix and match different types of styles so effortlessly.
Not only does he do this from song to song, but he and his band are
also able to do it within songs. A great example of this was during
their performance of Volume, where hard distorted breakdowns
were mixed in with the soulful flow of the original version of the
I'm sure I wasn't the
only one in attendance who hoped that when Trevor performed his hit
song Unity, he would be joined by Matisyahu. Unfortunately,
that duet never happened, but that did not take away from the powerful
energy that enveloped the packed venue when it was performed. That
energy didn't dissipate at all during their performance of The
Love Wouldn't Die, which followed Unity. Luckily for
the Montreal fans, we were treated to an extra song that wasn't originally
on the setlist. Before performing Om Shankti Om, Trevor let
us know that the performance would be a group effort and that we would
all have to sing along; and sing we did.
