Hanson- Shout it Out Tour 2010

Last night, I went to Memphis to see Hanson! They are my favorite band ever! I used to love them when they first came out in 97…I had the teen magazine posters on my walls and listened to them 24/7. I didn’t go to a concert until high school. They continue to make music…great music. I saw them again in college, and when they toured last year, I couldn’t make it. I was so sad. Well, I got to go this year…and I took Amber with me!She said it was a childhood dream of hers to see Hanson…and while she didn’t really keep up with their music over the years (until she decided to go to the concert with me) she was so excited to go!

This is our love- Zac. He was always my favorite. His cute looks, his pouty lips, and his voice. Oh his voice. He is so talented. He plays the drums and the piano. I just melt when he steps up to the keys. He did last night to play Lulla Bell. It was beautiful! I have loved this boy since 97…and though I am married (and he is married with one kid and another one the way…) my heart will always have a special place for Zac Hanson.

This is Issac, the oldest brother. He plays bass and sings. Last night, someone threw a drink onstage at Issac, and Isaac got mad and flipped them off. It was a tense moment. But he is crazy talented too. He does make some funny faces when he plays though…kind of turtle-like. ha!
This is Taylor- who plays piano and sings. He is usually the “lead” and a lot of girls’ favorite. He gets really into the music, and he sweats a lot. Exhibit A: the sweat stain on his pants. ha! He was just working hard for the audience!
They were amazing. They played new stuff, old stuff, some covers….and they just continue to mesmerize me everytime I see them. They are so talented and have such fun performing. They just draw in the audience and make us enjoy the show too. I can’t wait to see them again next tour!
If you want to hear some new Hanson music, check out these links to Youtube videos….I promise it’s good and a major leap from MMMBop…

PS. Even cooler about these guys is their philanthropic work…they raise money for TOMS shoes and they even went on a shoe drop a few years ago. They do barefoot walks with fans in each city they perform in and raise money to provide shoes for kids who don’t have them. Although they didn’t walk in Memphis (it was just too hot)…I did walk with them in Austin a few years ago. It was really neat to see them working for a good cause! And they also raise money for HIV in Africa. Talented and great hearts! I just love them!
