June 4th, 2021 Emerald City took the main stage at Taste Addison to open for the amazing Flo Rida and kick off the summer with one of many upcoming outdoor concerts. The morning of, our founder, Deno Taglioli, and a few band members were featured on CBS to give the public some extra information on Taste Addison. With 180+ restaurants, 22 hotels, upscale living, world-class special events, and more than 10 million square feet of office space, Addison had a lot to pack into two nights for the public to enjoy.
Taste Addison hosts the best eats, boutiques, and fun activities in Addison all in one place for you to enjoy. With cuisine choices ranging from Mediterranean to Chinese, a cupcake and wine tasting garden, petting zoo, and airbrush tattoos, Taste Addison has everything you and your family would need on a night out, all packed into two nights. They also follow CDC safety and sanitation protocol for the health of the public.
Every year in addition to the festival of activities, Taste Addison features live music on both the CBS Legends stage and The Main Stage at the center of the festival which is free to attend with the price of admission. Local bands from DFW like The David Whiteman Band, Satisfaction, and LIT were asked to open the show and get the party started. This year Emerald City was asked to open for chart topping Rapper Flo Rida! We’ve covered songs by Flo Rida like, “Low, My House” and many others during our own shows, but to OPEN for him ourselves was truly a unique experience.
The evening started with a heavy downpour that caught more than a few of our band members in the rain and resulted in a short delay of the start of the show. But soon enough, the rain stopped, the stage dried and we were ready to rock! The show kicked off without another drop and soon the audience was moving and shaking, puddles forgotten. Our frontline man Bishop even managed to do a little crowd surfing!
Thank you so much to Taste Addison for having us! It was truly an honor to open for Flo Rida and rock out with everyone! Check out the Recap video and photo gallery below and follow our Social media for updates on the rest of our Summer!
