The Foreign Exchange brought their Love in Flying Colors world tour to Brooklyn this Monday. Together with their live band, Phonte and Nicolay provided an evening of good music and energetic showmanship.
Phonte’s voice was rich, clear and very true to his recordings. He’s an engaging singer who manages to seize his audience with his singing ability combined with his playful wit and humor. Phonte was also very committed to his performance as he delivered an extremely lively set. Nicolay, along with the band also appeared to be in high spirits as they delivered their tunes. The group’s camaraderie is apparent in their performance.
The Music Hall of Willamsburg was a filled with loyal fans who weren’t shy about expressing their fondness for the group. It was hard to spot a fan who wasn’t singing along. It’s clear The Foreign Exchange have successfully grown their audience since their 2004 debut Connected.
There are still several dates ahead on this tour and I recommend this show to anyone who appreciates good live music. The Foreign Exchange offer a show where people can simply kick back and have a good time.
