first_imgComing off of a stunning two night run at Terminal 5 in New York and sold out show at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, GRiZ’s “Good Will Prevail Tour” rolled down Landsdowne Street in Boston for yet another packed house in support of the critically acclaimed album of the same title. The sold out crowd at the House of Blues was pulsing with positive energy as the supporting acts Haywyre and The Geek x Vrv showcased their talents before GRiZ took the stage around 10pm.Much like his Red Rocks tour debut in Colorado earlier this fall, the Future Funk rock star GRiZ started his Boston show high above the crowd donning his musical weapon of choice, the saxophone. The energy never let up until the final note at midnight as the Detroit native mixed through a multiplicity of genres, from old school funk and dance tunes, to reggae and modern dubstep.Alongside the brass master GRiZ was guitarist/vocalist Muzzy Bear, a life-long friend who has been performing full-time on recent tours. Perhaps Muzzy’s best display of vocal prowess came during the encore with a song off of Good Will Prevail titled “Driftin’” with beautiful guitar playing that lends a somewhat of John Mayer vibe. This piece definitely stands out as one of the more unique tunes on the new album and was a great way to come down from a night full of excitement.GRiZ shows may be filled with great music, but his team does so much more to enact positive change. Boston fans raised well over $1,000 for Little Kids Rock, a charity that grants under-privileged children musical instruments and private lessons. With GRiZ himself providing matching donations, this show doubled as a great effort to help children in need. Amazing!All in all, the night proved why it is never wise to miss a Sunday show! Funk on my friends! Show Love.
