The Beautiful Mistake

As a music fan, it’s easy to get blinded by the entertainment and forget that regular people are the ones behind instruments. This thing called “life” tends to catch up when someone isn’t on stage and for one reason or another, our favorite acts may have turn away from the microphone. The Beautiful Mistake was one of those bands for me. After introducing me to a slew of other bands through touring or album liner notes, The Beautiful Mistake slipped quietly out of the spotlight. Then a friend told me about the reunion show at Chain Reaction…

I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see one of my favorite bands again, and in one of the last places I saw them. It was great to see The Beautiful Mistake up on that stage again. They sounded great! And the looks on their faces showed that they were really enjoying themselves which made the performance even more special. Cherry on top? They brought out Taken frontman Ray Harkins to provide some guest vocals. I know this might have just been a short run for fun, but I wouldn’t mind a few more shows from the Beautiful Mistake in the future. The longtime fans like myself that crowded around the stage would surely agree.
