It was outstanding to catch Canadian Icon “Bruce Cockburn” perform. Almost did not make it. I arrived well after the concert had started. So glad that it was a rather long concert.

The end of the concert was also very cool, in that “Bruce Cockburn came back on stage to do an encore for all his fans.

Photos of the “Marianas Trench” concert at Nathan Philips Square on July 15 2015. Part of Panamania Toronto.

Marianas Trench” performed at Nathan Philips Square on July 15 2015.

The awesome concert was part of Panamania Toronto.

Josh Ramsay, the Lead Singer, interacted with the audience from the far left of the stage all the way to the far right of the stage.

This guy did not stand still. Incredible to watch stage presence.

Later into their set Josh jumps off the stage into the Photog’s Pit, to get closer to that Band’s fans. This kind of stuff is rare for any band, let alone a Canadian one. He then proceeded to climb up and started to “body surf” in the audience, while singing. Again, something that one does not see here in “conservative” Canada.

Josh’s effort helped the fans feel like they were part of the performance. The fans really are the most important part of any musical performance. Band’s are on stage for their fans. The guys in “I Mother Earth” talk about it all the time. The Marianas Trench concert, showed that these guys also know this lesson very well.

Concerts are not just about the music. I have a great stereo, just ask my neighbors. I can listen to music at home. I go to concerts to “see” the band play.

The visual impact of Josh Ramsay’s performance was inspiring. This was old school, from Chubby Checkers “The Twist” to Elvis Presley. He worked the audience and the audience “loved it”.

Simply put, the Marianas Trench concert on July 15 at Nathan Philips Square, created life long memories for everyone in the audience.
