INDIANAPOLIS, IN (February 23, 2019) – MOKB Presents brought the phenomenal Anderson East w/special guest Lucie Silvas to The Vogue Theatre for the Encore World Tour on Saturday, February 23, 2019. East’s reputation for enticingly extraordinary performances brought fans out in droves, so the line to the door was a lengthy stretch through Broad Ripple Village despite the rain. The Vogue’s wonderful staff kept things moving, though, and within the blink of an eye all ears were inside waiting for the harmonies to begin.

Lucie Silvas started the show with an illuminating exuberance that shined on the crowd with every note. Her passion was evident in every song she sang. Lucie’s entire performance was stunning, and an awesome addition to East’s Encore World Tour.

Anderson East took the stage to the sound of a welcoming roar from the crowd like no other. His star quality crossed with his surprisingly humble demeanor promotes a feeling of devotion from his fans that thunders out of them with uncontrolled passion. It took a hot minute for the crowd to go from boil to simmer so that the set could begin.

Anderson played many marvelous melodies from his past collection as well as newer hits like the vivacious “Girlfriend“. He included a few enthralling covers as per usual like Sam & Dave’s “Hold On I’m Comin’” and an arousing version of Rod Stewart’s “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” that really got the crowd riled up. East followed it all up with an outstanding encore that included bringing the lovely Lucie Silvas back out to help him deliver a show stopping performance of Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer“.

The show finally came to a bittersweet conclusion with Anderson’s timelessly heart wrenching piece, “This Too Shall Last“. He then took leave of the stage for good walking away from a crowd left ever longing for more, and already hoping for his return. No matter how many hearts he breaks, however, it’s easy to see that the Hoosier state will always have open arms for the incomparable Anderson East.

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
