Blair Garner, Kelly Ford, and Jesse Addy hosted Nash FM’s first annual “Nash Bash” on Thursday December 12th, 2013. Fans clad in Nash FM Santa hats piled into the Beacon Theater for an amazing show featuring Parmalee and Dierks Bentley.

Parmalee took the stage first, performing songs from their album released just two days prior. Fans went crazy for the hit single “Carolina.” Barry, Scott, Matt, and Josh are multi-talented musicians, playing everything from guitar to piano and more.

Minutes later, Dierks Bentley entered center stage with “Am I the Only One,” kicking off his exciting and energetic show. Bentley is particularly good at interacting with the crowd, even allowing one audience member to play the guitar while he jokingly took a break. He also took a seat on the edge the stage and let fans sing snippets of his 2003 single, “What Was I Thinkin.’”

But Bentley performed more than just his famous singles. Giving his band a break, he pulled up a stool and played a new comedic, acoustic piece, “Drunk on a Plane.” By the end, fans were able to sing along…a sure sign of a hit song! Bentley closed the show with the fan favorite “Home,” and the crowd held up their cell phones to light up the dark.

If your in the NY area, be sure to add “Nash Bash” to your holiday schedule next year!!!
