The Importance Of Experiencing Live Music

Whether it's a small event at a coffee shop or a big name at a fancy venue, live music experiences fill your soul and enrich your life.


As amazing as it is to make playlists and jam to music on the radio, there is nothing that can compare to seeing an artist perform live. The raw, passionate way they pour their heart and soul into their art is inspiring and adds to the overall intimacy of the experience.

When I think back to the concerts I've gone to, each one connects me to a different period of my life. Concerts have been the soundtrack of my existence and I associate the songs with my own personal experiences and people that were a part of my life when I first listened to them.

My first experience with live music was seeing Lionel Richie perform. I remember making my way to the front of the crowd and reaching up to give him a high five.

In that moment, I realized how incredible it is to be able to physically interact with your favorite musicians. The fact that there's an actual artist behind the creation you hold so closely to your heart makes the experience of live music even more influential. It is fascinating that people are able to have an emotional response to something created by a complete stranger. It sheds light on universal human experiences that we all share. Live music shows us that we're all connected and that we have more in common with those around us than we think.

I learned the power and influence of live music at a young age. I've been to many concerts since then and each has been a unique experience that I wouldn't trade for the world. Live music truly brings music to life and audiences together. It doesn't matter the singer. It doesn't matter the genre. Live music is always worth a listen.

Whether it's a big name artist or a neighborhood cover band, live music is incredible in all of its forms. You may find a hidden gem at a coffee shop that you would have never been introduced to otherwise. Supporting local musicians and artists benefit everyone involved and are a great way to get into lesser-known bands.

There's something powerful about seeing an artist sweating and playing their guitar passionately right in front of your eyes. You feel connected with the music in a way that YouTube music videos or radio stations cannot create. The authenticity of the experience and the atmosphere is rare, unique, and keeps you coming back for more.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.

One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
