This was an excellently energetic set as the band bounced, spun and darted about the stage. Not only can this band play and write music well, they also have a charm, a good attitude and a positive message while up on stage!

Set It Off are a fantastic live band from their instrumental ability, energy, showmanship and on point vocals every time! But they also come with a positive attitude and an inspiring message of working hard and believing in your self, which is a refreshing thing to see from a band, but most importantly they look like they are loving ever minute of it and look grateful for ever opportunity, no matter the size.
