Nashville alternative rock band COIN have just embarked on The North American Tour. Over 28 dates, the band will cover US and Canadian cities, finishing up in early March. The four piece of Chase Lawrence (synth/vocals), Joe Memmel (guitar/vocals), Ryan Winnen (drums), and Zachary Dyke (bass) kicked off the tour in Florida on 1st February.
Ellie Johnson photographed COIN and Utah pop/rock support The Aces for us at the 2nd February Orlando show, and also shared her experience of the night. Check out the photo galleries below as well as Ellie’s impressions of the evening:
People travel near and far to see COIN perform and would do anything to see them up close and personal. I met people at the Orlando show who had traveled by plane or drove many miles to see this show. Some people even got to the venue early in the morning to wait in line. There have been other shows where people have camped overnight!
The Aces, the opening act, gave an incredible performance. Catchy lyrics and amazing stage presence. A very talented group. In my opinion, they are sure to be one to watch.

COIN gives a performance of a lifetime. Lots of head-banging involved! One minute there’s tons of dancing and the next you’ll look over and see people crying. The crowd was so energized that even a mosh pit started (not so typical for this type of music).
When they played the song “Talk Too Much,” you could not find one person that was not singing along. Chase, the lead singer puts 100% into every performance with crowd interaction and raw emotion.
You can tell that this band loves what they do and they are happy that they can touch the lives of so many through music. Since I have met COIN a few times before at smaller venues, I was shocked to see hundreds of people waiting to talk to them after the show. The members of COIN are some of the nicest people I have ever met and they love their fans. Overall it was a show to never forget!
