Sam Riggs began his set with an all time favorite "Long Shot" and instantly the venue was filled with high energy. That is the thing about Sam Riggs, not only are his songs intense,but the energy that he gives to the audience is powerful. The energy packed set continued with "Heartbreak Girl"a song from his latest album "Breathless". However the moment that made -the 5 hour drive, rushing from the hotel to dinner to Stubb's in a hot humid day completely worth it, was not only seeing Sam Riggs play "Lucky Ones" but it was hearing everyone singing along to every word, and the fact that he took the time to recognize and thank the law enforcement for their continuous work and sacrifice. As someone who has a family member in the field and is constantly surrounded by law enforcement, this, made my heart happy.
I hope that this would sway you to checking out Sam Riggs and The Night People, if you haven't already. Personally I feel that they have a song for everyone. Also, dont forget to follow him along on his social media to make sure to check out when he comes to a place near you.

I know I will be looking out for a headlining show somewhere here in South Texas, because although he always takes time to spend it at his merch table and engage with his fans, I have yet to meet him. I am hoping third times the charm. *fingers crossed*
