Ever hear of them? They are awesome, awesome awesome! I had heard about them, and I had heard a few of their songs from time to time, but I had no idea how awesome they were until Monday night.
I have been to one non-classical concert in my life (other than the concerts at Ricks, I loved expecially when they brought “The Trenchoats” now named “The Coats” they are an awesome acapella group that I will write about some other day). When I was in highschool my brother had tickets to a “Yes” concert. His date had something come up unexpectedly and so he took me with him instead. It was my first and only major concert of that variety to ever go to. I never found a band or group that I like well enough to pay that much money for tickets. Well, now I have. 🙂
My brother and his family had tickets to go to the Ryan Shupe concert here in our little home town Monday night and found themselves unable to go. We became the recipients of 4 tickets to the Ryan Shupe concert with arrangements that Emmy could attend free if she sat on a lap. My brother even babysat Jacob for us so we could all go. Talk about fun for the whole family!
They are kind of a bluegrass/country/rock band (I really don’t know what they would classify as because I listen mainly to classical and yodelling, heh) with awesome fun songs, super clean lyrics, and packed with enough fun to get all the kids bouncing and singing along. The ammount of talent they have is awesome. I never cared a whole lot for this type of music, but over the years, mainly because my hubby likes it, I have started to like it more, but I have never found a group that I like this much. 🙂
Anyway we had an awesome night with the whole family (except Jacob, sniff. But he had a lot of fun hanging with his Uncle) and found an awesome group that the whole family loves. 🙂 Here is a link to their site and in the music and juke box section you can listen to some of their songs. You moms of young children have got to listen to “Two Year Old Attitude” It is an absolute hoot! 🙂
