Andy Grammer is music’s easiest guy to root for, and tonight the Los Angeles-born singer-songwriter brought his headlining tour to the House of Blues in Chicago, IL. Dubbed “The Good Parts Tour”, in support of his brand new LP, the multi-platinum selling artist treated a packed crowd to performances of his new album and fan favorites from his 2011 self-titled debut and 2014’s Magazines or Novels.

From humble beginnings, the 34-year old Grammer has gone from selling CDs to tourists in Southern California to taking the world by storm with huge singles like ‘Honey, I’m Good’ and ‘Good To Be Alive’. And tonight fans in Chicago helped celebrate Grammer’s come up, by singing along word-for-word as the ‘Fine By Me’ singer and his talented band put on a show that the House of Blues will not soon forget.

Grammer kicked things off with two tracks from his new album, as well as an entertaining performance of ‘Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah)’. Throughout the night Grammer performed the majority of The Good Parts, while still sprinkling in tracks from his first two albums. They say if you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life, and Andy Grammer is the epitome of just that, as his infectious energy on stage can’t help but make fans smile. No one had a greater night tonight than Andy Grammer, but his Chicago fans were a very close 2nd.

And to end the night on a high note, Grammer ended the main portion of his set with his mega single ‘Honey, I’m Good’, before treating fans to one last song, with an encore performance of the new album’s title track, ‘Good Parts’.

Last night ‘Honey, I’m Good’ singer Andy Grammer and the Patrick Monahan-led Train opened up their two-night residency at The Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL. Performing for a sold-out Chicago crowd, both Train and Grammer delivered with high energy and performances of some of their best records.

Kicking things off for the night was Andy Grammer; a great singer, a talented songwriter and someone we dubbed as “music’s easiest guy to root for.” Grammer opened his performance on a high note with performances of his breakout single ‘Keep Your Head Up’, as well as his records ‘Fine By Me’ and ‘Kiss You Slow’. Whether he was thanking fans for their votes on “Dancing With The Stars”, even having the crowd get up and dance themselves, or whether he was performing some creative mashups of his tracks mixed with some current radio hits, like a mix of his new single ‘Fresh Eyes’ with The Chainsmoker and Daya’s hit record ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, Grammer found a way to entertain the crowd throughout his whole set. Other highlights of Grammer’s set included his performance of ‘Forever’ (with some hilarious acting in the background from his band), and his closing performance of his big single, ‘Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah)’. Just days away from his co-headlining tour with Gavin DeGraw (another Ravinia Festival alum), Grammer delivered for Chicago tonight.

Next up were the night’s headliners, San Francisco roots rock band, Train. Perhaps known best for their record ‘Drops Of Jupiter’, Train’s engined is powered by much more than just one train track. ‘If It’s Love’, ‘Meet Virginia’ and ‘Bruises’ are just a few songs from the beginning of their set that instantly reminded fans of Train’s star power. Since their debut self-titled album in 1998, Train has been a staple in rock music and tonight was a reminder of just that. Tonight was also a treat for Illinois, because it was a hometown show for the ‘Hey Soul Sister’ performers, as Train guitarist Jimmy Stafford hails from Morris, IL. Highlights of Train’s night-one performance included Monahan performing in the crowd, spanning across the entire pavilion, walking on seats and taking selfies with fans, and of course their encore performance of ‘Drops of Jupiter’. It will be hard for tonight’s performance to top last night’s show, but we’re sure that Train and Andy Grammer are up for the challenge.

Check out our photos from last night’s performance below.

Taylor Swift has been killing it during her current U.S. leg of her 1989 World Tour. Last weekend Taylor brought the tour back to the States and she invited Nick Jonas, the U.S. Women’s Soccer team and The Weeknd (who performed his hit single ‘I Can’t Feel My Face’) to New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. Next up were surprise appearances from Jason Derulo and Swift’s bestie, singer Lorde, who flew in to say hi to fans in our nation’s capital. Tonight marked Taylor Swift’s first night (of two) at Chicago’s Soldier Field. With a great cast of surprise guests in the last week, fans could only speculate what Taylor had up her sleeve for Chicago, one of the country’s best music hubs.

Interview: Andy Grammer is Music’s Easiest Guy to Root For

Andy Grammer is music’s easiest guy to root for, and that just may be an understatement. Today you can’t turn on the radio without hearing Grammer’s single ‘Honey, I’m Good.’, and while a lot artists may see their commercial success come almost overnight, Andy Grammer, who is one of the nicest guys in the industry, has truly worked his way up the charts. Sharing stories about studying music and learning to fail in college, to his version of “grad school” where he would pay rent by performing on the street 6 to 10 hours a day, we sat down with the ‘Keep Your Head Up’ singer to talk about his come up, temptations, his next album, and blurring the lines between “pop music” and other genres. Before his studio debut and self-titled album, which brought his first successful singles like ‘Fine By Me’ and ‘Keep Your Head Up’, Andy would sell his demo CDs for $5 on the street to Santa Monica tourists, only to have those same people come up to him half a decade later with those same CDs, while Andy is touring the country in promotion of his latest album and performing a single that reached the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 list. Hard work really does pay off.

It’s taking a break today, but Milwaukee’s Summerfest 2015, the World’s Largest Music Festival, has gotten off to a great start. Unlike many other premiere music festivals, Summerfest (which runs until July 5th) brings an especially diverse list of performers to Milwaukee’s lakefront every year, creating for a festival where you can see Kanye West (who performed in 2011) share the same stage as Peter Gabriel and Kid Rock. So to get things started for The Early Registration’s first year at Summerfest, we had to catch a wide variety of acts all festival long.

Check out our Summerfest Day 5 photos below, of Andy Grammer (interview coming soon), Ryn Weaver, The New Pornographers and Summerfest’s most controversial booking, DJ Paris Hilton.
