Melbourne based singer/songwriter Lakyn Heperi rolled into The Grace Emily last week for the final leg of his ‘For My Amigos’ tour. His visit to Adelaide followed on from shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
Lakyn made his way to Adelaide just hours before his set, choosing to take the scenic route and road trip down from Melbourne alongside his good mate and band member, Gareth. The two made the 8-hour drive just in time to have a quick frothy at the bar and then take to the stage to play some tunes.
First up for the night was Adelaide three piece, Bjear. They played a quiet, intimate gig in front of a crowd seated at their feet. The captivating lyrics and vocals silenced the audience, as they sat and watched the raw performance Bjear was giving them. Within the three piece was a saxophone which added to the vibe of the Grace Emily Hotel.
After another quick frothy at the bar, Lakyn jumped on stage for his set. He told the audience, who were still sitting at this stage, to stand up as "things were about to get a bit loud". He started his set with one of his latest hits and arguably his most popular track to date, ‘View Looks So Good’.
The rest of his set was filled with his self-described ‘musical tacos’ as he gave the crowd a blend of covers and original tunes. A few early 2000’s flashbacks were thrown into the mix with a cover of Mario’s ‘You Should Let Me Love You’ to get a crowd sing along in motion. Lakyn finished off the night with his latest belter, ‘West’. After his set, he invited his new amigos to join him at the bar to send off his tour with another frothy or two.
