As Ryan Hamilton & The Traitors take to the stage in the unique church by day, venue by night atmosphere, he starts off by asking the familiar-faced crowd if he can say the F-word in a church, already having a fun time with the crowd.

As Ryan opens with a solo acoustic / vocals, a minute in you find The Traitors fill the church with a warming sound and great acoustics. Jokes of his first ever UK appearance and realising the C-word is just an everyday word Brits call each other, malls/shops, soccer/football and other English terms. Treating it like "any other gig" with the use of language as the song See You Next Tuesday drops in the mix as the crowd claps and sing along. People of all ages are dancing and swaying to the country rock songs from the Texas singer-songwriter. As you get to know Ryan through each song by telling stories about his life, he opens up about how much appreciation he has for a crowd to sing back the songs, with his clearly dedicated fans who notably have experienced a Ryan Hamilton show before, you may even call them all his friends as he knows most people in attendance on a first name basis. From the serious talk, he swiftly moves onto jokes about "literally standing on a grave" in the church, and not understanding some of the English hecklers in the crowd having just as much fun. There's a reason why the same people keep coming back for more, with the sincerity and talent of Ryan as he fills the church singing about his home town of Texas, medicine, and bands he grew up loving.
