If you’re a big fan of OneRepublic and live in West Palm Beach Florida, you don’t want to miss their show on August 17th at the Cruzan Amphitheater. The band is known for songs such as All The Right Moves, Stop And Stare, and Secrets.

The song All The Right Moves is on the band’s second album entitled Wake Up. It was released in November 11th 2009. According to songfact.com Wayne Isham directed the song’s music video, which features the band playing on a small stage for the performers of a masquerade ball. The site also states lead singer Ryan Tedder explained to Digital Spy the meaning of this song:

“It’s kind of a self-deprecating anthem and it’s about how we’ve felt as a band at certain times. When OneRepublic came out, because of the other writing and producing I’d done, and because Timbaland was associated with our first single, we got completely discarded by the critics. Even if OneRepublic made the coolest art record ever, we’d never be able to erase the memory of how we broke. This song’s aimed at all the cool-ass bands that we’ll never be.”

Stop and Stare is on OneRepulic’s debut album Dreaming Out Loud. It was released in November 20th 2007. Songfacts.com states this song is about getting stuck in a rut. OneRepublic wrote on their Myspace page that “Stop and Stare” describes the common frustration of getting to a place in life where you think, “How in the world did I end up here, this isn’t where I wanted to be, watching what I wanted pass me by.”

The third song Secrets is also off on the Wake Up album. The song was chosen due to the fact that it was used as the title song in a German movie called Zweiohrküken, the sequel to Keinohrhasen, which used their song “Apologize” as the title song according to songfacts.com.

Here are some reviews from users on ticketmaster.com who saw the group play live with Sara Bareillis as the opening act:
