Rascal Flatts knows how to please a crowd

   GREENSBORO — Last Friday, Rascal Flatts graced the stage of the Greensboro Coliseum and it was a great show. Rascal Flatts was preceded by The Band Perry, who really warmed the crowd up. Once Rascal Flatts finally hit the stage, it performed the hit song “Banjo” and had the once-sitting crowd up on its feet.
   There is a difference in being great entertainers and a great artists, and Rascal Flatts is both. The presence and chemistry on stage between all of them was amazing and the crowd ate up every minute of it. Jay DeMarcus, piano player, was a huge crowd pleaser with his funny jokes and interaction with the crowd. All the Flatts boys know how to give a fantastic show and even took requests from the audience on what songs to sing.
   Before the encore, lead singer Gary Levox took time during the concert to thank the Lord for his presence and for the band’s success. It was a very moving moment that touched many hearts in the crowd.
   After a short break in the excitement, the crowd was surprised when the Wake Forest University marching band accompanied the group on “Life is a Highway.” Rascal Flatts may be a little unconviential, they certainly know how to please a crowd.
