first_imgAnderson .Paak‘s rise to the national spotlight has been incredibly fast, but the road he walked to prepare himself for this moment was long and dark indeed. From heartbreaking family struggles to sold out performances at festivals like Suwannee Hulaween, appearances on tracks with Jay-Z and chart hits Paak has survived it all. Amazingly, Paak and his band The Free Nationals have used the strength built from that adversity to share a message of hope, inclusiveness and joy, packaged with a sexy swagger and a funky beat.Paak has spent time behind the drum kit, as he often does at live shows including the high energy set during the recent Halloween themed event at The Spirit Of the Suwannee Music Park. After setting the tone by coming out to a piped in tape of Guns n’ Roses “Welcome To The Jungle” the band launched straight into his most recent hit, “Come Down.” The crowd went into a frenzy, waving arms and getting down as one to the rock steady beats and sparking flow of Paak. Leaving the crowd no chance to catch their breath he then reeled off wild renditions of “Milk n’ Honey” and “Drugs,” each driving the audience further and further into the red zone of party madness.Easily one of the best received performances of the entire weekend, by the end of their allotted time they left to a chorus of pleas for more from a thoroughly excited crowd. Our own videographer Rex Thomson was on hand, capturing the experience as the park’s beloved Amphitheater went into a literal frenzy surrounding him.Check out the footage of the mayhem, below.“Come Down”“Milk n’ Honey”“Drugs”last_img
