White Ford Bronco, DC’s beloved all-’90s cover band, rocked in the new year at The Anthem recently where they played before a crowd of over 3,600 people, the biggest show yet in the band’s 11-year history.
A New Year’s Eve performance by White Ford Bronco has become a staple of the DC music scene, but this is the first year the band has “graduated” to a venue the size of The Anthem, the waterfront concert hall which is the crowned jewel of DC live music production company, I.M.P. WFB has given sold-out NYE performances at other I.M.P.-managed venues in past years, including shows Lincoln Theatre in 2018 and 9:30 Club in 2019.
This year’s show was stepped up a few notches with the addition of three special guests. While “Kiss Me” by Sixpence Non the Richer, “Everything You Want” by Vertical Horizon, and “Inside Out” by Eve 6 are regularly included in a typical WFB setlist, The Anthem show featured the original artists — Leigh Nash from Sixpence Non the Richer, Matt Scannell from Vertical Horizon, and Max Collins from Eve 6 — joining White Ford Bronco on stage to perform the songs.
