With his unique blend of R&B, pop, and indie influences, Khamari captivated the crowd at White Oak Music Hall for the first stop of his first headlining tour. This singer, songwriter, and producer from Boston, MA, has made a name for himself as an emerging R&B artist. Khamari was last seen on the Camp Flog Gnaw, and as he embarks on the ‘A Brief Nirvana’ tour, he is ready to hold down a stage for himself on this tour.
Anticipation grew among the audience as they anxiously awaited Khamari’s debut. The unknown setlist added another level of excitement for the crowd as the singer took the stage. The room erupted in applause and cheers when Khamari took center stage. He rocked the stage with songs from his album A Brief Nirvana, such as Cherry Picking, Right My Wrongs, and Tell Me, which included a killer guitar solo. He explained that even though this tour was for the album, he wanted to play some unreleased music for his fans. The crowd excitedly cheered for the new music, and Khamari began to play away.
Everyone in the audience happily swayed and danced along to the unreleased songs. The crowd danced the night away as he played hits such as Doctor, My Eyes, and These Four Walls. He even included a remix of his song On My Way with Maria, Maria by Santana.
Drifting brought the night to a close, and Khamari took his final bow and thanked the audience for coming to the show. This show was the start of something fresh for the R&B scene, and Khamari continues to blossom into a stable for the genre.
