The Greeting Committee is an energetic indie rock quartet based out of Kansas City, Missouri. Their music careers started while they were still in high school, forming a band that would continue growing after being discovered by a local Alternative Radio. Since their start in 2014, they have signed with Harvest Records and released two EPs, with a debut album on the way. Last summer, they toured with MisterWives, and now this spring they began their tour with Jukebox the Ghost. Everywhere they go, they leave an impression on the audience. They are fun, kind, charismatic people that genuinely care about the people that listen to their music.
When they took the stage in Denver, they brought an energy that a lot of people don’t always get with an opening band. They were happy to be there, ready to rock, and most definitely going to make the audience fall in love with them. Addie Sartino, the lead singer, donning a super retro red jumpsuit, started singing and it felt like all was well in the world.
Throughout their set, it was fun to see the audience move and dance with Addie, proving even more the fact that this band has a way with people. Even when they slowed it down to play their incredibly emotional “Birthday Song,” the crowd lowered their energy with them. You could feel the way they were feeling; feel goosebumps with every note. The song itself is so incredibly beautiful, and although it strayed for their usual ready-to-rock demeanor, that song made the show that much more worth it.
After jamming out with the indie rock band, they made sure to stay around the merch table to meet with fans, new and old. They took pictures and formed relationships with everyone they met. It is truly amazing to see a band who cares so much about the people they interact with.
Their new album will be released soon, and based on the few new songs they played in concert, it will be a fun one. Be sure to watch out for what they do next, and support your small local bands.
