Although it was the indie rock band’s first time performing in the college town of Oxford, Ms, Colony House and crowd filled the music venue with energy as they opened up their show with “Landlocked Surf Rock” followed by “Would Ya Could Ya,” both songs off The Cannonballers.
Colony House, nearly 10 years old, is currently touring the U.S on their “The Cannonballers Tour” with the support of indie band, Little Image. This tour follows the release of their fourth album The Cannonballers which was released earlier this year.
While lead vocalist Caleb Chapman mentioned wanting to play as many songs off their new album as possible the band also performed older songs including “Silhouettes” and “Learning How to Love.” This also included “Moving forward” in which Little Image joined the band back on stage to perform together.
The night was full of many memorable and special moments as the crowd danced and sang along to their favorite Colony House songs. It was hard to miss the connection and love Colony House has for their fans as the band members continuously interacted with the crowd throughout the night. From having a fan in the crowd join the band on stage to play lead guitar for “2:20” to drummer Will Chapman, jumping into the crowd to lead vocalist Caleb Chapman, wearing a fans denim jacket.
Colony House thanked the crowd once more for coming out and told Oxford they were sure to come back. The band ended the night with an encore of “You Know It” which filled the venue with excitement one last time as the crowd jumped and danced as they sang along.
With many tour dates still left, Colony House is a band you won’t want to miss seeing in a city near you.
