The Coachella 2014 is in full swing and the onlookers had an amazing time with J. Roddy Walston & The Business kicking off the start and energizing the crowd with the perfect rock and roll. Hundreds of people had gathered at the Outdoor Theatre and they enjoyed some of the most popular singles such as “Heavy Bells,” from its 2013 album and “Essential Tremors.”
The band was certainly not going to let the heat die down and we all know too well that they have always been known for their rowdy live performances. The crowd cheered as they continued with the “Midnight Cry,” “Take It As It Comes,” and “Don’t Break the Needle” and all this while Walston was emphatically pounding the piano keys with his head banging in the air. Walston came back once again into the spotlight after the performance had ended and shared his ultimate experience with Coachella 2014. He also talked about the music industry and ideal collaborations.
This was the band's first experience of appearing at Coachella 2014 and it was quite evident that they were thrilled to be a part of such a vast festival and Walston spent last Sunday roaming the fields and checking out acts such as Neutral Milk Hotel and Superchunk. While he talked about the stage and sharing it with this kind of electric mix of arts, he said “We were definitely excited. It kind of feels like a really hip festival.” Since everyone knows that there is going to be tons of guest appearances on the Coachella 2014, Walston said that if bands are made to collaborate on this platform then it would be his dream come true to work with The Replacements and the Pixies. “In Tennessee, there are fantastic musicians everywhere. You are either numb to it or don’t realize how special it is,” he admitted. He was recalling a certain time phase in his life and carried on saying that “Then you have that moment when you become your parents, and all of a sudden this is so natural and easy. It just comes out, like a language that you know but haven’t used in a long time."
