Euphonious! Trevor Hall at The Vic Theatre (April 22, 2022)

Trevor Hall has been coming to Chicago for many years. When he first started playing Chicago, he was playing at Schubas which only has a capacity of 250. Eventually he moved on to Park West with a capacity of 1000. During tonight’s performance, Trevor took a moment to express his gratitude and reflected on the band’s earlier days. He was overwhelmed with emotion as he reminisced on the time when they opened up at the Vic Theatre and recalled thinking that one day it would be amazing to headline at this exact stage. And tonight, they did just that in a packed venue with a capacity of 1,400 and very excited fans.

Early in the set, Trevor Hall plays a cover of the Foo Fighter’s “Everlong”. The band just lets loose and really rocks this one out. The audience joins them in this celebration of this great rock song.

Everyone smiles when he plays the intro to “Green Mountain State”. “ There’s a way, there’s a way, there’s a way, there’s a way, there’s a way. It has always, always.” It’s such a peaceful and mellow song for everyone to sway along to.

When he plays the first three chords of “Lime Tree”, the crowd cheers. It’s one of his oldest songs which he has been playing since he used to play at Schubas. It’s so beautiful to listen to everyone sing along “It took a while for you to find me, but I was hiding in the lime tree. Above the city in the rain cloud, I poked a hole and watched it drain out”. It’s so well written.

For the second song of the encore, they play “A Reminder”. The audience knew this song was coming because behind them is a giant backdrop that reads: “My love is just a reminder. Find your center.” It’s a beautiful song from The Fruitful Darkness album that is a great choice to include in the encore. Tonight’s performance yet again showcased his undeniable talent and euphonious voice which continues to reach audiences across the country.
