New York - On March 2, 2013, pop boy band Midnight Red performed as part of the “Pop Explosion” tour at Gramercy Theatre in New York.
It featured such opening acts as Raquel Castro from “The Voice,” Simplicity (an R&B trio of sisters), Frankie Zulferino, Ochoa Brothers, Karl Wolf, Deph Naught, rapper Peyton Sanders, Jillian Jensen from “X-Factor,” among many other talented artists.
Midnight Red is comprised of Anthony Ladao, Eric Secharia, Colton Rudloff, Joey Diggs and Thomas Augusto.
They opened their set with the infectious “A Night to Remember.”
“How are you feeling Gramercy? I can’t hear you,” Joey screamed with excitement.
It was followed with “Body Talk,” which was upbeat and catchy, as the stage was graced in green and red lights.
After the band introduced themselves to the crowd, they covered Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” where Thomas showcased his ability to hit the high notes, in a stunning version that would have made Swift proud for sure.
“We are having such a great time up here,” Thomas told the audience.
They sang “One Club At a Time,” a tune that Joey dubbed as his personal favorite song. As they performed this vocal, the stage was decorated with purple and white lights and the audience held red glowsticks in the air.
Colton brought out a stool on stage and they invited a lucky female fan on stage with them and they serenaded her to a rendition of Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” The girl was overcome with emotion and the group gave her a pair of earrings as a present in lieu of a “diamond” ring.
They sang “Say Yes” and concluded their 8-song set with their signature song “Hell Yeah,” which was the crowd favorite of the evening.
“Thank you so much Gramercy! We love you,” Anthony exclaimed as they guys left the stage.
According to Barbara Goldsmith, an attendee and fan, “Midnight Red filled Gramercy Theatre with excitement. I loved their music. Their show was electrifying and they got their fans up on their feet.”
Overall, Midnight Red proved that they were at the top of their game vocally and the group’s harmonies were controlled and soothing. Although they only sang eight songs, they displayed strong dancing skills and all of the five guys had great stage presence and they interacted well with the Gramercy crowd. One Direction and The Wanted need to watch out since Midnight Red is certainly going places and they deserve to be the next big boy band of 2013.
