Paul Brandt and Dean Brody bring energy to Centrium

IN SYNC - Country singers Paul Brandt and Jess Mosaluke perform together at the ENMAX Centrium Tuesday night.

Thousands of fans gathered at the ENMAX Centrium Tuesday night as country singers Paul Brandt and Dean Brody brought the Road Trip Tour to Red Deer.

Jess Mosaluke opened the night and performed the catchy and energetic Elevator, before moving to a slower but powerful tune Kiss Me Quiet. She also performed a spot on cover of Heart’s Alone, among other originals before finishing off with Cheap Wine and Cigarettes. Mosaluke’s energy on stage was fun and contagious and she certainly got the crowd revved up and ready for Brandt and Brody.

Next to hit the stage was Brody who got the crowd pumping with Bounty and Bring the House Down. Concert-goers were just as engaged as Brody slowed things down with Little Yellow Blanket in which the crowd loudly sang along, to Wildflower. Brody kicked things up again with Dirt Road and Upside Down to the excitement of the audience.

The audience then demanded Brody back on stage once he left and he returned to sing Canadian Girls which had the crowd on their feet.

Brody has an energy that makes him very enjoyable to watch on stage – you can tell that he is truly comfortable and in his element.

As Brandt took to the stage the atmosphere was electrifying – the crowd staying on their feet for his entire set. Brandt started off with the crowd-pleasing I’m An Open Road in which Mosaluke joined him on stage.

He then made his way to the middle of the floor to a small stage that had been set up, much to the pleasure of the crowd who surrounded him. There he sang a few of his hits including That’s What I Love about Jesus (before breaking into Amazing Grace) and I Do. During his time in the middle of the floor, Brandt took about a dozen selfies with the crowd as he continued to perform.

Brandt returned to the main stage to perform his classic My Heart has a History before bringing the energy up even more with I’m Gonna Fly in which the crowd began stomping, dancing and singing and then a giant yellow rubber duck entered the Centrium as Brandt sang his hit Convoy.

Brandt brought an energy to the Centrium that was powerful. His presence on stage is natural and his interactions with the crowd are genuine.
