I had the pleasure of seeing Wes Period perform at The Roxy back in February, as soon as he hit the stage and began his set he had the crowd going wild. Wes really has a way of hypnotizing a crowd into a trance like state, chained to the beat, bobbing and feeling it. It truly was a religious experience and by the end of the night “Wutda Hell” was my new anthem and I too was a “Champagne Champion”. Wes recently dropped his EP “Pretty Words” and is definitely worth a listen.
