Review: Lance Bass and Larger Than Life dazzle at Mulcahy’s (Includes first-hand account)

Larger Than Life was introduced by Lance Bass of the world renowned boy band N SYNC, who got the Mulcahy’s crowd pumped up about 90’s Night.

“We have a long way to go tonight. Now, who has seen Larger Than Life before?” Bass asked, and the response was tremendous. “Damn, you have some groupies in the house. Well, I’m a big fan too, and I came to see their show. Guys, let’s have some fun tonight. Shall we?”

Larger Than Life performed all of the boy band hits including their namesake tune “Larger Than Life,” “Tearin’ Up My Heart,” as well as songs from New Kids on the Block. The more contemporary songs “Despacito” (Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber), “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” (Shawn Mendes), and “Can’t Stop the Feeling” (Justin Timberlake) were added bonuses.

Particularly impressive about “Bye Bye Bye” was that Lance Bass jumped on stage and showcased his spot-on dance moves, where the audience went nuts, as rightfully so, as they were reliving their childhood.

Overall, it was a fun and entertaining night for all, especially for Larger Than Life members Edvin, Toly, Devin, Chris and Price, who were able to make this childhood dreams of theirs a reality (to share the stage with Lance Bass). As always, Larger Than Life did the Backstreet Boys, N SYNC and the other boy bands proud. Their charisma and passion for performing is evident, as well as their love for Mulcahy’s and their dedicated fans and listeners. Well done boys.

Towards the end of the night, Larger Than Life gave special birthday shout-outs to Loretta, one of their biggest fans (of the Larger Than Life Army), as well as this journalist, who will be celebrating his birthday on Sunday.

“Seeing Lance up on stage again with the Larger Than Life boys brings back such a sense of nostalgia. I’m so glad I was able to experience this memorable event,” said schoolteacher Jillian Onorato, who was in the audience.

“I couldn’t be more proud to see the guys of Larger Than Life perform with Lance Bass! The energy was palpable!” exclaimed Denise Cirolia, of the Larger Than Life Army.

“As usual the guys of Larger Than Life were amazing!” praised fan Gina Miller. “Their energy is just so contagious that it makes you want to go crazy too! I’m so happy for them that they got the opportunity last night to perform with Lance Bass there! They are truly amazing guys and deserve nothing but the best!”
