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.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
