A Musician’s Perspective on Performing at Aloha Falls

Aloha Falls is typically known throughout Libertyville as an outdoor miniature golf facility in the summer with glow in the dark indoor table golf games during the winter season. New to Aloha Falls are live music concerts on Friday and Saturday nights.

Saturday, February 16th, my band Belmont Cross, had the opportunity to perform live music at Aloha Falls. Belmont Cross is a local Chicago suburban band that performs originally written high energy alternative rock music.

There were several notable differences between performing at Aloha Falls versus a typical suburban venue. The biggest advantage to us was that this was our first all-ages show. Most local bands, us included, play shows at bars or music venues that serve alcohol. Aloha Falls allowed our younger fans the opportunity to see us live because they did not serve alcohol. This created a different, but entertaining and much worth-while opportunity for our band.

Another notable difference was that your band performs on the floor, rather than an elevated stage. This gives the performer the opportunity to be much closer with their fans and even interact with them since the physical barrier normally present at a live show is removed.

Differences aside, it was a unique and fun experience and when the weather warms up, perhaps we’ll play Aloha Falls again during their outdoor summer concert series.
