CONCERT REVIEW – Lost Kings – Boston, MA

Lost Kings kicked off the weekend early on Thursday night with their performance at Paradise Rock Club in Boston, MA.

The DJ duo returned back to Boston for a night full of iconic remixes, original tracks and the people who matter to them most: their family, friends and fans. This city means a lot to Lost Kings and their connection and dedication to Boston fans, as well as venues, is something that has stuck with them for years now. Robert Abisi grew up in a town neighboring Boston and Nick Shanholtz attended Berklee College of Music back in 2010. And if one thing is certain, their energy matched up exactly with the crowd on November 14, 2019.

Fans knew every word to each song by Lost Kings and instantly fell in love with their remixes to feel-good songs such as “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)” amongst other well-known songs from recent decades. Both members of Lost Kings made sure to get out from behind the booth in order to interact with the crowd. This and the captivating lighting stood out as unique when comparing the show to other electronic acts. It was hard to even locate Shanholtz at times due to how fast he would move from one side of the stage to the other.

Lost Kings were even able to play some new tracks off of their most recent EP Lost Angeles for the crowd. “Somebody Out There” has definitely become a fan-favorite, as well as “Too Far Gone.” Attendees made a point to take a break from recording and grabbing photographs in order to really be present for the songs that meant the most to them. Their effortless passion for the duo radiated all around the venue and made it easy for new fans of Lost Kings to feel welcome.

The most important thing that stood out to those in attendance was the genuine friendship and enthusiasm Shanholtz and Abisi portrayed while performing together. Despite their mass success and support from millions of people, it became clear to everyone at Paradise Rock Club that Lost Kings would not want to be doing anything else in the world. They have fun with each other and are grateful for those along for the ride. And when you take away the crowds and the fame, they are still two authentic and talented guys with the same passion just trying to connect with people like everyone else.
