PHOTOS: Roi and the Secret People and The Roux at The Funhouse

Roi and the Secret People have had a big 2016, marked by high-energy performances throughout the Lehigh Valley. Saturday night at The Funhouse in South Bethlehem was no exception, as the Easton-based quintet ended its year on a positive, once again proving why they are one of the region’s most exciting rock acts.

Founder’s Picks: Best Song of 2016

First, let me start by saying that this category, like all of them, could have gone a number of ways. For example, I could have chosen a song with the grit of Roi & the Secret People’s “Hungry.” Just as tempting was the prospect of choosing VoirVoir’s youthful anthem, “I Wanna,” or virtually any track from Rofo Audio. In the end, however, I went a bit south to Philly, where The Wayside Shakeup released their single, “Stay Up,” earlier this year.

BONUS VIDEO: The Wayside Shakeup Performs ‘Stay Up’

Many of us on the music scene can relate to a song like The Wayside Shakeup’s “Stay Up.” We’re often out late, doing what we love, meanwhile someone waits patiently (or impatiently) at home for us to finish for the evening. As someone who had a special lady waiting for me as I attended the band’s show at MilkBoy last Friday, this song certainly speaks to me.

Naturally, then, you can imagine my excitement when they transitioned into the new single during their set. I was so taken in by the moment that I just had to hit record!

Consider this just a sample of the band’s great live show, which you need to make sure you see if you haven’t yet. They’re as tight a band as you’ll hear on the indie scene and, as an added bonus, they’re super cool to work with!
