The Salamanders Rock the 4th for a Crowd of Thousands

Sandy City put on a spectacular 4th of July bash this year–and up front and center stage at this public event was our popular party band, the Salamanders. The Salamanders have now hosted this Independence Day concert five times!

A crowd of thousands filled the park at the South Towne Promenade to watch the Salamanders perform on the open-air main stage. Kicking off the set in the early evening, Rickae and Jordan Robbins brought the patriotic celebrators to their feet with a rousing rendition of the National Anthem.

Listeners then settled back onto blankets and lawn chairs as the Salamanders delivered on their promise to put on a show that would include music for everyone in the diverse crowd.

There was a little “Uptown Funk” complete with some rocking percussion by drummer Joel Stevenett.

This little guy jammed out to some Rascal Flatts (or as most pre-schoolers think of it, the theme song to Cars.)

Fans took to Facebook and Instagram to share their enthusiasm for the event. “Dang! Salamanders are tearing it up in Sandy tonight!” posted Stacie Raddatz (@stacijanrad). Cody Anderson (@grainedgeut) tagged the Salamanders with this post, “Putting on one hell of a show again.”

Everywhere you looked, people were on their feet, getting into the show and enjoying the music. As the sun set and the light went with it, families pulled out glow sticks to play in a music-filled night under the stars. The luminous glow of fans bopping to “Beat It” or grooving to “I Gotta Feeling” while lit up by neon necklaces and bracelets was a sight to remember.

After almost two and a half hours of dancing fun and awesome vocals, the band ended their set and turned the time over to a local radio station that would M.C. the fireworks display that followed. But for many of those at the South Towne Promenade on that starry night, the best “Fireworks” were the ones the Salamanders sang about in a fantastic, high-energy performance.
