InOh Wonder’s first visit to Fort Collins they took toWashington’s stage for a night of laughs, inner reflection, and alt-pop as they performed their meaningful music brilliantly. The concert was encapsulated when Josephine Vander Gucht gave an insightful comment on the importance of being yourself before jumping back into song
All the performers on the night from left to right were bassist Yves Fernandez, vocalist and keys player Josephine Vander Gucht, guitarist, vocalist, and keys player Anthony West, drummer George Lindsay, and the saxophonist was Josephine’s brother.

Vander Gucht’s beaming smile let everyone know how much she enjoyed her time on the Washington’s Stage.
Another highlight of the night was when Vander Gucht and Anthony West shared their experience touring Old Town, during which West purchased a cheap Christmas ordainment for Vander Gucht’s collection (she tries to buy an ordainment at every stop on tour), which he dropped and broke moments after purchasing. This extra effort to get to know the town and acknowledge the Fort Collins community was greatly appreciated by the excited crowd.
West sings and performs with absolute passion.
The chemistry between the Vander Gutch and West’s was easy to see when their eyes met.
It is entirely possible that Vander Gutch was smiling more than she was singing on the night.

All of the hits off of the purposeful album“Ultralife” were played along with their older songs such as“Drive” and“Lose it”. However, Oh Wonder were not the only band to perform asAstronomyy opened up the show with some witty humor and a sexy voice similar to Dan Smith of Bastille.
Astronomyy can play, and he has a good personality on stage.
One has to appreciate the extra y.
“Things I’d Do for U” was the stand out song from Astronomyy performance.
