Just a couple months ago, we had told you about the awesome show that Farewell, My Love delivered on their stop into San Francisco for the We Own The Night Tour. This past Thursday, we were treated to the return of Farewell, My Love as they brought The Rock and Rebel Tour into Santa Rosa.  The tour just started on June 10th in Bakersfield at Jerry’s Pizza and features Farewell, My Love, Jamies Elsewhere, Incredible’ Me and Lionfight.  On their stop at the Live Musician’s Co-op here in Santa Rosa, it also featured three of our favorite local bands, Awoken Shadows, A Hero To Fall and Chapters.

The energy of the crowd was pretty good for a Thursday night and the band kicked into high hear as they took the stage. Farewell, My Love always give a 150% when they hit the stage. It was great to see many of the familiar faces in the crowd. One thing is for sure, they have very dedicated fans and when they are playing, they always make sure to make it out to the shows, no matter how far away it is! So we saw some fans from San Francisco, a couple who were at the Bakersfield and some who were going on to Sacramento!

Chad Kowal on drums blasts away on his double bass and delivers a fierce dose of drumming all while engaging the crowd with his dark mystique. Adding to the rhythm perfection is Charlee Conley laying down dynamic basslines through his passionate playing and robust energy. You are treated to two amazing guitarists, Robby Creasey and Logan Thayer on each side of the stage. Your eyes darting from one to the other as they deliver their precision guitar work amidst their charismatic and theatric stage presence. Ryan Howell is powerful and intense on his vocals and brings to life each song as he performs them. Each one of these five talented musicians have magnetic personalities and spellbinding stage presences that takes the audience member to a heightened sense of bliss.

The music of Farewell, My Love is definitely emotionally driven and truly connects to the listener. It comes as no surprise, to have heard from fans who explain how listening to their music has helped them or inspired them, or simply provide a sense of relief and retreat from whatever struggles or problems they were facing.

The Rock and Rebel Tour continues on until August and includes many dates across the US. I hope you make every effort to get yourself to a show. These guys deliver an energetic kick ass set every time.  We had the opportunity to interview them before their set and we will be bringing that interview to you soon. For now, check out the photos from our Rockin Ryan of their set in Santa Rosa:
