That 1 Guy Interview & Fan Reviews – Nashville, TN

Have you ever decided to stay over at a friend’s house after the party is over? Did that friend suggest watching a PBS special before passing out? At first I was all “Say Whaaaaa”?, but within a few minutes I was completely engaged and tuned into the 30-Minute Music Hour featuring That 1 Guy.

I kept an eye on That 1 Guy’s calendar for years, hoping he’d make his way through Nashville, and he did just that on Wednesday. On this tour, Mike Silverman (That 1 Guy) has a special “Magic Mustache Club” VIP option for fans. If you can secure a spot, I recommend taking advantage of the opportunity. Before the show, Silverman performs some close-up magic (cards & coins) for 5-10 fans and hangs for a lengthy meet-n-greet. The package also includes a t-shirt, admission to the show, and a VIP pass.

A meet-n-greet with That 1 Guy is so much more than a simple “hello”/picture/autograph. Silverman is hands-down the most interesting person I’ve ever met and had the pleasure of listening to. This man has a beautiful mind and so many interesting stories and experiences. I’m usually intimidated by people this brilliant and talented, but Silverman is humble, personable, and speaks to you as a creative buddy without ego or agenda.

That 1 Guy is a born entertainer, able to wow a small crowd with the vulnerable art of illusion one minute, and in the next, perform solo in front of a packed house (or an entire festival audience for that matter.) He has revolutionized the concept of the one-man-band, making it futuristic and electronic, and therefore, hip with today’s dance generation.

This video reminds me of getting fan reviews after shows:

I’m a sucker for a live-loop demonstration in concert, as it gives merit to the artists who use computers and other digital advancements during shows. I feel they get a lot of abuse from Classic Rock lovers, and those skeptics need to see artists like That 1 Guy to appreciate the changes. Of course, That 1 Guy invents his own technology and instruments, which gives him more credibility than your average DJ.

In addition to the live loop, That 1 Guy showcases the variety of styles he can produce using the Magic Pipe. There are metal moments, symphonic moments, funky moments…all the colors of the sonic rainbow pressed into what I believe was an hour and a half show. He also works in puppets, magic, humor, and sound-triggered video that makes for a unique Vegas-like experience that seemed to fly by and had the crowd hootin’ and hollerin’.

There’s a certain innocence to That 1 Guy’s music that makes me think he could be the next Raffi meets Jim Henson. As a new mom, I’m seeing a whole franchise here…from Saturday morning cartoons to a “That 1 Kid” line of toys and kits that assist kids in inventing their own musical instruments. Just watching this dude gets the old wheels turning.

That 1 Guy closed the show with a killer cover of Cameo’s “Word Up,” and afterwards, had a line of people waiting to meet him. Check out the link below of That 1 Guy’s upcoming shows. Seriously, if he’s coming near you, don’t miss it. Mind blown.

  1. A job interview could be a method within which a possible worker is evaluated by Associate in Nursing leader for prospective employment in their company, organization, or firm. throughout this method, the leader hopes to see whether or not or not the mortal is appropriate for the role. employment interview generally precedes the hiring call, and is employed to judge the candidate.
