If anyone knows how to put on a show, it’s Krewella. Krewella consists of two vocalists (who happen to be sisters) Jahan and Yasmine, and producer Kris. This was their second time playing at Red Rocks in a matter of months (they played at Global Dance Festival), and the moment they stepped on stage, it was clear that they would steal the show. Fans in the audience held signs that read, “MARRY ME” and there wasn’t an instant that the crowd wasn’t jumping wanting more from them. Their music is addicting, a quick listen to tracks such as “Killin It” or “Alive” and there’s a big chance that it will be stuck in your head.
What’s amazing about Krewella is how incredibly connected and nice they are to their fans. As soon as they finished their extended set (Dirty South cancelled last minute due to an accident), fans came up to the side of the stage asking for pictures and the trio didn’t hesitate and took as many pictures as the fans wanted.
Before their set at Red Rocks, we had a chance to talk to Krewella backstage and this is what they had to say.
The Music Ninja: First and foremost, where did you guys develop your love for Jameson?
Yasmine: Oh god, okay, so we used to work in this bottle service place back in the dark days, and Jahan was a bottle server, and Jameson just kind of was the THING there and uh… I should not be talking about this since I’m the baby…who else wants to talk about it?
Jahan: We all kind of had to agree on our one drink that we all agreed on and it was Jameson and it definitely started in the dark days like Yasmine said with the bottle service days when Yasmine and I were working at this one lounge in Chicago um it SUCKED and—
Kris: No no be honest, we’re here, we’re hanging out, okay? We support Jameson because they paid us the most money.
Yasmine: I fucking wish!
Jahan: JAMESON SPONSOR US!
TMN: So you guys were just here for Global Dance but you were upstairs, what does it feel like to be going on to the main stage tonight?
Yasmine: Fucking honored! Fucking honored.
Jahan: Dude, it looks epic.
Kris: I’m a little bit tired, I’m full, drinking Jameson, so I feel good.
Jahan: The last time we were here we were watching Knife Party at Global Dance, it was INSANE it’s just crazy to be on the same stage that they were on because they’re one of our favorites and I’ve been trying to figure and scope out how to crowd surf because it’s on like an uphill stairs…It’s a bit dangerous, we all decided that we’re probably going to have to climb up to the top.
Yasmine: And then roll down!
Kris: We call it the inception stage dive because you’re doing it from the wrong side.
