Sufficed to say; things are going well in the land of MMJ.With two nights on home turf, the band started out the show with their newest song, “Throwback (When We Were Young)” before bringing out The Waterfall track “Compound Fracture.” The show featured a total of seven songs played for the first time in 2016: “It Beats 4 U,” “A New Life,” “What A Wonderful Man,” “Heartbreakin’ Man,” “Dondante,” “Bermuda Highway,” and “Phone Went West.” Of course, several classic MMJ tunes made it into the set, like “Wordless Chorus” and “Mageetah,” as well as oldie and fan favorite “Off The Record”.  The band performed a song from almost every album, primarily drawing from Z.Watch one of the 2016 debuts, “Bermuda Highway,” below:Another major highlight was the return of the band’s cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain.” Watch the emotional performance via fan-shot footage below:MMJ returns to Louisville, KY tonight to wrap up this exciting two night run, before heading to the Shaky Knees Music Festival this weekend.
