K104.7 Hosts Not So Silent Night at Legendary Chance Theater
On Saturday night the legendary Chance Theater played host to one of the hottest events of the year, hosted by local pop radio station, K104.7
The Morning Show of Woodman, Kate, Bill, Blackberry, Diva & Big Ang were out in full force to welcome this years “Not So Silent Night” concert. The lineup consisting of Hey Violet, Zay & Zayion, Zara Larsson, JoJo, Charli XCX, & Shaggy , made for a great day of entertainment and a sold out, all ages show.
The event began with pulsating beats and heavy bass lines from “Hey Violet” as they kicked off the night, sharing their favorite pop tunes with the crowd.
As the packed house roared and danced to welcome the artists
Who got them ready for Zay Hilfiger and Zayon McCall guys that sing the latest dance craze, ‘JuJu on that beat.’ You could see the whole crowd immersed in the dance, it was by far one of the highlights of the night. In fact, later in the VIP area, the two came out to hang out and gave exclusive performances and dances of the song with several groups of their fans- both young and not so young! In fact a certain someone may have made it to their instagram page while dancing with them, but I won’t mention names. (Wink!)
Zara Larson wowed the crowd with her current hit, “Never Forget” and several others.
Next up was The youngest Billboard Pop artist to have a number one song at 13 years old, JoJo, who is from Massachusetts . Her soulful and powerful voice certainly captivated the crowd and left them wanting more.
The audience was still dancing and cheering and seemed to still be in high energy mode. Next up was Charli XCX, who is well know for her song , “Boom Clap” , which is from a favorite teen movie , “A Fault in our Stars,” came out scantily clad and was definitely the talk of the night. She is from the U.K. and is currently making her way up on the charts here in the States.
You could see the crowd at this point getting a little tired after going strong for about 5 hours, but there was one artist left that they were in anticipation of- Shaggy. The Jamaican born, reggae fusion singer and DJ. Brought his high energy performance to the stage and the crowd got back into full dance and sing along mode. Shaggy is famous for “Boombastic,” “Angel”, and “It wasn’t me.” In fact during the famous song, he had a special guest star Samantha Cole come out and sing her part of the song. When she did, the crowd roared with excitement!
I was lucky enough to spend some time with Samantha, who lives just outside of the Hudson Valley, over the Connecticut border, before she went on. She is a vocal coach and she’s working with some local talent who I’m sure we’ll hear from in the very near future.
