Get Along united many onlookers at The Black Sheep, on Feb. 18. They were the opening act, Xenia Rubino was the direct support and Man Man was the headliner.
Cara Summer is the pianist, guitarist and lead vocalist and Nicholas James is the drummer, plays the synthesizer and provides the shouts for Get Along.
Summer sang two sets of vocals and displayed her range, to begin Get Along’s recital with “I Sing the Body Electric”. James struck his drums and accompanied her, as she played her keyboard and provided lyrics. James brought the song to an end, as he struck his cymbals alternately. Afterwards, he introduced the name of the band.
Prior to the start of “I’m Not Alone”, Summer thanked the crowd and the venue. She spoke of how the next song would be sad because the local music community lost a friend, Michael. She stated a few of his comrades had gotten together and wrote the song. Before Get Along began—she turned off her amplifier, placed her guitar on the ground and dedicated the song to her late friend.
Before “Oh, Wicked One”, James stated it was a “regular jungle party”. After making the statement— Summer applied face paint and requested some of the spectators to come forth, if they would like some too. Those nearby walked towards her and she drew on their faces. She grabbed ahold of her tambourine, played it and sang near the edge of the stage. As she sang a cappella—James walked over, applied face paint, returned to his drum set and proceeded to play the drums.
“JuJu Street Revival” was the last song of Get Along’s concert. Before they began, James stated his “war paint was dripping into his eyes” and said he hoped to be able to finish their performance. Shortly after, Summer said they were from Colorado Springs, Colo. and how she resided 12 minutes away from the venue. She thanked the crowd for supporting local music, encouraged everyone to pick up one of their free download cards and to give them a “Like” on Facebook.
During “JuJu Street Revival”, James led the crowd in a series of rhythmic applause. Then, Summer and James jumped in place and continued to perform. After bringing the song to an end, they thanked the crowd one last time.
“So You Think You’ve Got Compassion” was also part of Get Along’s set.
