I Heart Hanson
"…That’s how we met! We were Hanson fanz and got Hanson tattooz together! I’m definitely committed to my favorite bandz. But, my number one has to be Needtobreathe.
I can’t remember how it happened but I was given a song by them about ten years ago. They did a secret show at a little dive in Boston. I just happened to be there. The first one hundred people got in and it was a game changer.
I was also front row at a show in Fort Lauderdale. Got a note from the lead singer. Their roadie came over to where we were hanging out after and asked, “Were you the one wearing the red hat?” I pulled out my red beanie and he gave me a piece of paper. It literally had only an email address. So what do you do when a lead singer gives you his email address? You email him!
They invited me to go bowling, but I was in college and had a test. We did keep in touch and I saw him a few more times on the Rock Boat cruisez they headlined out of Miami.
But, best concert ever? Needtobreathe at Red Rocks! I was in Denver visiting friends and it was amazing. It’s the rockz. The sound bounces off them beautifully. When they started to harmonize or go a capella, it was amazing. And the light. It was on my bucket list. But you need to be in shape. I bought the sticker “I survived the climb”. There’s no driving. You have to hike it. It’s so gorgeous.
All that and I saw Hanson play with the Denver symphony orchestra only a few days before! I’m committed to my favorite bandz…"
