CHRIS DAUGHTRY

Daughtry brought their rocking show to Sound Waves at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. The impressive setlist had a nice balance of old and new material.

 

The band is touring in support of their latest release "Cage to Rattle" which is the band's strongest and most mature work to date.

The band, featuring Chris Daughtry on lead vocals, rhythm and lead guitar is rounded out with Brandon Maclin on drums, Brian Craddock on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Elvio Fernandes on keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals, Josh Paul on bass guitar and backing vocals and Josh Steely on guitar and backing vocals.

Daughtry kicked off the show with "Just Found Heaven," which was strong, with a haunting ominous intro. It was followed by the powerful "Feels Like Tonight" where Chris Daughtry dug deep into his forceful voice. 

On "Backbone," Chris said, "We all fall on hard times, and we have to stand up and have a backbone" before starting the song. Elvio Fernandes showed his strong backing vocals trading harmonies with Chris Daughtry.

Chris slowed it down, alone on acoustic guitar, for "Home." That vibe continued with the new single "As You Are," which is an emotional song close to Chris Daughtry's heart that was written with his wife, Deanna.

With the band performing the first encore "Waiting for Superman," Chris brought a little girl on stage named Emily, while he continued singing and dancing with her. It was followed by the infectious “September” and then the band paid tribute to the late music icon Prince with a cover of "Purple Rain," showing Chris' vocal range on the Prince classic.
