Radio SNHU hosted their annual “Rock The Night Away” concert, featuring The Breeze, in The Last Chapter Pub on November 17. The band covered songs by various artists, including Taylor Swift, Guns N’ Roses, and Journey.
Students began streaming into the Pub at 8pm. Throughout the performance, audience members sang along, clapped, and occasionally got up to dance.
The Breeze initially closed out the show with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing,” but the audience chanted for an encore. The band performed a couple more songs, including a guitar solo by lead guitarist, Jacob Calamar. The show concluded at approximately 10:40pm, going past the initial scheduled close of 10:30pm.
Songs The Breeze performed included Olivia Rodrigo’s “good 4 u,” Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and Disney Channel classics such as “Music’s In My Soul,” performed by the Jonas Brothers in “Camp Rock” (2008).
Members of The Breeze, who are all from Massachussetts or Rhode Island, appreciate the unifying quality of music. As stated on their website, “The Breeze loves to harness the power music holds, with a broad audience of fellow music lovers and passionate musicians. The Breeze has found great joy and satisfaction by being involved in the creative music process and connecting with their audience.”
Audience members, such as Math Club Vice President Sean Joudrie (’23) recapped the event as entertaining.
“My roommates and I love live music, and this event was a wonderful surprise,” Joudrie said. “The band played familiar, classic songs that everybody could sing and dance to, and the bands energy spread to everyone in the room. [I’m] looking forward to more similar events.”
