Cleveland, Ohio – I recently saw Sumo Cyco in direct support for The Butcher Babies a few weeks ago and was immediately blown away by the band. In honor of the over the top performance we decided to list the five reasons you must see Sumo Cyco live and in person .
The band is just a fun band to watch and listen to. The comradeship on display in the band reminds me of the best part of the Red Hot Chili Peppers just having fun on stage .The smiling , the fun , the games and the shoulder rides makes it just a fun band to be around.
2- Audience Participation
The audience is part of the show whether they want to be or not.With singer Skye crowd surfing , drinking shots and riding the shoulders of guitarist Matt Drake, the fans are at the center of attention. Skye reminds me of the first time I saw Gwen Stefani and I knew that she was going to be huge one day and I feel the same way about Sumo Cyco so see them now before it arenas only .
3- The Music
Ill be honest, I didn’t know a single song or lyric of the band and most of the audience didn’t know them either at the start of the show.But the ability to hold onto and control a crowd and leaving them begging for more when they were not even there to see you shows you the power of the songs. The bass, the guitars , the drums and the vocals work as cohesive team to delight the ears and thrill the eyes. This is one band you will never forget.
4- Social Media
The band is very active on social media and fan interaction. They know when and how to meet the fans and anticipate what an audience needs. Showing that life on the road can be fun but is not always glamorous .
5 – The Members
The members included on this tour were ,
Skye “Sever” Sweetnam -Vocals
Matt “MD13” Drake- Guitars
Oscar Anesetti- Bass Guitar
Matt “Trozzi”- Drums
This is one band that must be seen to enjoy the full force of them . Two albums and 17 music videos and binge on it is time to absorb all you can . To learn more about them please see the official website at http://sumocyco.com/
