Review: The Lumineers at the Walmart AMP

Posted: October 7, 2016 at 5:18 p.m.

NWA Democrat-Gazette/Jocelyn Murphy Rayland Baxter, BؒNS and The Lumineers perform Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016, at the Walmart AMP in Rogers.

Saturday night brought an exceedingly popular new band to a sold-out crowd at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rogers. I use the term "new" somewhat loosely -- The Lumineers actually have roots back to the early 2000s when Wesley Schultz (lead vocals, guitar) and Jeremiah Fraites (drums, percussion) started writing and performing songs together. It's more their fame and the ubiquity of their singles that are relatively new.
