A night of nostolgia last night in Detroit Lakes as Eve 6 and SmashMouth rocked the 2019 Bash on the Beach stage.
The crowd was buzzing with excitement, and possibly a bit of alcohol, as they waited for Smash Mouth to take the stage. The hype escalted 10 fold when the music started and the band emerged. Smash Mouth has always been about fun, making them a perfect act for an event such as this. Every one was bouncing and bobbing throughout the whole set, singing along with every party anthem thrown at them.
The crowd interaction was on point, with lead singer Steve Harwell spending most of his time engaging with everyone in the front row. Multiple comments were made in particular to the group of girls wildly dancing against the barrier. At one point in the night the call for "ladies on the stage" rang out, leading to a dozen intoxicated women stumbling over the barricade for their 3 minutes of fame.
The set was full of their best and most well known, including their 2000's punk infused covers of "Why Can't We Be Friends" and "I'm a Believer", as well as funky tunes such as "The Fonz" and "Getaway Car". To no surprise they rouded the night off with their hit "All Star", which Harwell introduced by saying "I expect you all to sing along to this one!".
Smash Mouth and Eve 6 put on a great show, and definietly brough the summer 'bash' to the beach!
