The popular Swedish rock band The Sounds rolled
into Hollywood’s Fonda Theatre recently and performed to an excited crowd. Members: Maja Ivarsson vocalist— Johan Bengtsson bass — Jesper Anderberg keyboards— Felix Rodriquez guitar and— Fredrik Nilsson on drums never let up from the opening anthem, Painted By Numbers to their finale.
Formed in 1998, they have taken their music all over the world. The pop sound sensibilities of countrymates Abba is not lost on their passionate danceable melodies. In fact, this indie band delivers pounding dance music with a vengeance.
The fans pumped their fists and sang along inspiring Maja to come down from the stage during a number and dance with the audience. With all the kissing and hugging that was going on, it is obvious that this band is for lovers! This tour seemed to use the same strategy the previous 2016 tour did, which was give the audience the songs they wanted. And they did! Bravo….
