Live & In Concert!

I’ll admit -I haven’t been to many live concerts and I really have never been to a concert that you had to pay a significant amount of money for.  BUT the few concerts I’ve been too have been fantastic and make me consider dropping everything and becoming a rock star!

One of our family’s favorite songs is Wildflower by the JaneDear Girls.  Low and behold, I discovered they were going to be performing near us, it was free, and I could surprise the girls!  What could go wrong?  Well – we did have a great time, but there are a few take aways:

  • If something is touted as “family friendly”, there is not guarantee that their definition of “family friendly” is the same as yours.
  • Never, under any circumstance, believe that the star act you are waiting to see will begin at the time advertised.
  • Remember ear plugs, even for country music.
  • There is a direct correlation between the volume of the music and the amount of beers the DJ has had.
  • The band playing back up, the techies, and the planners are just as important as the person whose name is on the band.
  • Lastly, the Jane Dear girls are pretty awesome – talented singers, talented musicians, and normal looking females who dress appropriately (which for a family of 3 girls is a huge win!).
Enjoy the pictures.  My girls were such troopers in waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting, but memories were created and time was well spent together.

  1. Love your post, Chris. Two of the three girls look like they’re having a good time, but I just don’t know about the shortest one. Thanks for posting about your night on the town.
