Haley Reinhart Plays Short But Sweet Set at Room 5

Haley Reinhart performed at Room 5 this past Tuesday night in Hollywood, California. Haley was added to the show calendar on Room 5’s website last minute a day before the show took place. There were other artists also performing.

A short but sweet set, accompanied by the house band, Haley performed her three songs “Better”, the newly released “Can’t Help Falling in Love” cover, and lastly “My Cake”.

Before performing Better, Haley stated that it will be her next single and hopefully is released by the end of this month! Also, she gave her first live performance of her new highly popular Elvis cover! Watch below:

Back and better than ever!

Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams and Dylan Chambers put on another great show at the Room 5 Lounge in Hollywood last Wednesday night. The show was made possible thanks to Dylan, who went on first at 10pm and opened the show with an entertaining charming set.

Next on was Casey, who started his set with a few of his own songs. He even mashed up Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty to Me” with his song “Dry Spell”. After that, it didn’t take long for Haley to join him up on stage and sing with him for the rest of his set.

Haley creeped up on stage to play her “hand trumpet” for “Almost Like Being in Love”:

Casey then teased Haley for barging in on his set, telling her that now she has to stay and sing more songs with him. So of course she stayed and they went on to sing Casey’s song “Never Knew What Love Could do”, where Casey invited Haley to share a seat with him:

Next song up was “Stuck in London”, a song from Casey’s debut album which always gets a fantastic crowd reaction:

They also brought back a popular cover of theirs that they hadn’t done in awhile, “Sail”:

It was then Haley’s turn, and with her she had friend and fellow singer/songwriter Anders Grahn to play guitar and do backup vocals. Anders and Haley have written a few songs together now. They first met at a song camp in Santorini Greece, where they  wrote “Better”.

Haley started off her set with a brand new song called “Lover Girl”, that as she explains in the video, may or may not make the upcoming EP:

Next was “Better”, as stated earlier, Haley and Anders wrote this song together on the first day of their songwriting camp. It was a treat to watch it performed by the people who created it:

Haley said it’s tradition to do a new Beatle’s cover at every Room 5 show, so her and Anders gave us a beautiful rendition of “Don’t Let Me Down”:

The second new song she debuted for us that night was “Good or Bad” which may also make the EP as well:

Casey was then brought back up on stage to perform with Haley and Anders for the rest of the show, they started with a jazzy acoustic amazing version of “Night and Day”:

The show was almost over, but the crowd at this sold out show were in for a real treat. Haley gave a sensational acoustic performance of her highly popular “Creep” cover. Less jazzy this time around, but still the same singing arrangement. It was nothing short of amazing to hear live. Do yourself a favor and have a listen below:

Last but not least, to close out the show Haley and Casey sang another popular cover of theirs (and Postmodern Jukebox), an epic (and hilariously entertaining) performance of “All About That Bass”:

Yet another amazing sold out (well deserved) show by Dylan, Casey and Haley. They are all so talented and are the kindest most down to earth people, which doesn’t go unnoticed and is probably the reason their shows keep selling out.

I got to talk to Haley, and she said her EP is moving along quickly, and should be out this summer! There are lots more new songs we have yet to hear, and a few will be left for a surprise once the EP is out. I also asked about the possibility of her own tour for her EP, it’s definitely a possibility, stay tuned.

As for the Postmodern Jukebox tour coming up, Haley’s really excited about it and is so proud of what her and Casey have been able to do with them. Check to see if Haley’s coming to a city near you here, & buy tickets at pmjlive.com!

Haley closed out the show featuring Dylan Chambers and Mark Ballas last Tuesday night at the Room 5 Lounge in Hollywood California. It was an awesome night, filled with great music and lots of talent. And I mean LOTS of talent considering half of the Dancing with the Stars cast seemed to be there to support their fellow cast mate Mark Ballas. Celebrities in attendance included Mark’s parents, Shirley and Corky Ballas. Also, Sadie and Korie Robertson, and Chrys Howard from the hit A&E TV show “Duck Dynasty”. Other dancers including Derek Hough, Witney Carson, Sasha Farber, Allison Holker, plus more were also there! Janel Parrish (actress from the popular TV show “Pretty Little Liars”) and Bethany Mota (Famous YouTube Video Blogger) who are both also on this season of Dancing with the Stars were in attendance as well.

Dylan Chambers opened the show with his own catchy originals, while showing off his guitar skills, and with memorable Prince and Amy Winehouse covers. Mark Ballas took the stage next, playing many songs off his recently released EP “Kicking Clouds”. He also gave an amazing performance of his song “She”, which he dedicated to his grandmother who had passed away last year. Haley closed the show with quite the memorable set, with guests Albert “Beatalks” Marzano on drums, Clare Reynolds and Casey Abrams on a few songs from the night.

You don’t want to miss the debut of Haley’s new song “Knock Me Out” accompanied by Clare Reynolds on the piano and backup vocals. Clare is a singer/songwriter who wrote this new song with Haley. She also co-wrote “Love is Worth Fighting For” as well, which Haley debuted a few months back at Room 5.

Also a first, Haley and Casey’s fun new cover which seems to be a fan favorite was Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass”.

Another new cover was Eric Hassle’s “Pathetic”, which truly showcases Haley’s vocal abilities. This is a must see!

“@HaleyReinhart so stunning, gorgeous, and a voice of rich Velvet outstanding show tonight, and what a “Cake” UR lovely :)”

Haley and Casey’s What May Have Been Room 5 Farewell Show

Haley and Casey played yet another amazing show last night at the Room 5 Lounge in Hollywood, for what could be the last time. (Let’s hope not). Room 5 is such an awesome intimate venue that Haley & Casey have played quite a few gigs at now. The place has new owners, and they are not sure if they’re going to keep the music venue alive. If you haven’t already, please sign this petition to help show the new owners that so many people love this place and it would be such a shame to lose it forever!

Click here to sign the petition!

On a brighter note, yet again we got one hell of a show to witness at Room 5 last night! Jackie Tohn went on at 10pm before Haley and Casey. Jackie is a former American Idol contestant as well. She is HILARIOUS and played some awesome covers and originals. Also, she might be just as big of a “Caley” fan as we are! She wouldn’t stop talking how amazing they are, and that it’s stupid how in love with them she is. (Us too Jackie, us too). One song Jackie chose to sing last night was Carole King’s “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, in which she asked Casey and Haley to help her out on. Check it out!

Haley and Casey’s set finally started at 11pm (Not to mention, I had been there since 6pm to get a good seat, which was totally 100% worth it.) Their setlist consisted of:

L-O-V-E

Stuck In London Better

Dry Spell Hit The Road Jack

Never Knew What Love Could Do (New song Haley & Casey wrote together!)

Love Is Worth Fighting For (NEW HALEY SONG!)

Show Me Your Moves

Happy Birthday (To Jackie, a Halien, and Michael Jackson)

You Were There

The Way You Make Me Feel

With A Little Help From My Friends

YES! Haley debuted a new song of hers last night that she recently has written. It is so powerful and you can tell that she poured her heart and soul into it when she was writing it. Do yourself a favor and listen!

LASTLY, they closed out the show with a new Beatles cover of theirs, “With A Little Help From My Friends”, and in that moment, Haley and Casey slayed us all.

We hope that this isn’t the last time we see Haley & Casey at Room 5. Some of their best performances I’ve ever seen all come from this venue alone. Again, please sign the petition if you haven’t already and spread the word around. The rest of my videos from last night are on this playlist here! Enjoy!

Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams & Company Take It To The Streets!

BrayvfDCIAA2ZD-

I had the pleasure of attending this sold out show at the Room 5 Lounge in Hollywood California, this past Wednesday, June 25th 2014. I’ve attended a couple of shows at this venue in the past, and let me say that it is ALWAYS a good time. It’s a small intimate place, which makes it that much better. It was a sold out show, making it a little crowded in there, leaving not many places for people to sit. Regardless, I think everyone enjoyed the music we got to endure for the night.

Dylan Chambers, Mark Ballas, Haley Reinhart & Casey Abrams performed a 2 hour set, from 8-10pm. Dylan Chambers took the stage first, and started out the show on the right foot! Then it was Haley’s turn. It was a surprise for Haley to see her main keyboardist Keith Phelps at the show, he was in town visiting and she had no idea he was coming. She asked him to help out for a few songs since he was there, which of course he did! Haley sang a few of her originals, and even spoiled us with some new covers like “Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay” and “Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good To You”. Her voice sounded absolutely incredible, I think it’s sounding the best we’ve ever heard! Mark Ballas then took the stage and rocked out, he did an awesome job showing off his musical talents, including shredding on the guitar! Casey was last to go on, he entertained the crowd with some covers and originals, and of course invited Haley back onto the stage to sing his song “Stuck In London” together. That lead to them giving us an awesome 1 minute preview of Haley’s new song for her upcoming music video “Show Me Your Moves” which I’ve previously posted here.

The 4 of them all have great chemistry performing together. The show was a lot of fun, and it was sad that it had come to an end… But wait! There’s more! Dylan, Mark, Haley & Casey decided to take the show to the streets! A crowd had formed around the 4 of them on the sidewalk right outside of the Room 5 Lounge, and they put on almost another hour’s worth of a show for us. We got to hear covers of some Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, and more! People in the crowd were filming, dancing, and singing along, making enough of an impact for the cars driving by to slow down and stop, to try and see exactly what the hell was causing all this ruckus on the sidewalk close to midnight on a weekday.

The night was a blast, it was truly a one of a kind show that I was lucky enough to see. From the show inside, to the show outside, they all performed their hearts out and gave all of us who were there some great memories. This might only be the start of many more shows to come from these 4, we shall see what the future holds!

There were many amazing videos filmed from this night by multiple people, if you have yet to see any of them, please, check them out! You won’t regret it!
