Indie Week Report Card: The C’Mons @ The Silver Dollar Room 92%

By: Andrea Holz October 28, 2013


Sound 4 /5

Huge sound, so much energy! Loved it. The entire ensemble was great! Love fiddle in hard rock. Lead singer Steph Bosch’s voice was soulful and enchanting, yet she still stood strong regardless of the loudness of a bass drum. She has a great voice, kind of like Jewel in her early years but with a bit more of a gritty edge.

Performance 5/5

For a not so packed room they really built up the excitement and bright most everyone to their feet. They had a lot of energy and a huge musical ensemble. I particularly loved the violin.

Professionalism 5/5

Very well-rehearsed. The C’mons seem natural on stage. I sensed slight jitters from the lead singer off the top, but that quickly changed. They really took control and did some fabulous audience work sharing stories of love and possibilities. They were charming as musicians as well and personalities. They were fabulous

Aesthetic 4/5

They all look well put together. Bosch’s hair suited the genre. Their appearances did not steal focus from the music, but didn’t really enhance the show much either. I do feel that the venue suited them and the combination of the stage, the venue, the light and their personal style made for a fabulous mix.

Authenticity 5/5

They all were wonderful on their instruments. The songs came from real places and they looked so right on stage. When they talk about the origins of their songs you feel like they care about the audience. And that is the most authentic action a musician can take. Showing they care about their fans. I love that relationship they created with the audience and I hope to see their progession.

Total: 23/25

Final Grade: 92%
