New York Mets Summer ’14 Concert Series: Boyz II Men and Austin Mahone!

We try to go to a couple of baseball games each summer.  And what better time to go than when the team is hosting a post-game concert?   The New York Mets have a tradition of summer concerts, which in previous years have included Third Eye Blind and 50 Cent.  But we are extra excited about this year’s lineup, as it includes some of our faves:  90s boy band Boyz II Men, and the one man boy band Austin Mahone!

Any ticket to the game will get you admission to the post-game show, and in the past artists have played near-full sets (around 10 songs).    Visit the Met’s website for more info.

Hunter Hayes, The Vamps & MKTO To Perform at US Open Arthur Ashe Kids Day!

The only we thing we love more than music is tennis.  Our favorite summer tradition is the US Open, which takes place in NYC for a glorious 2 weeks at the end of August.  After spending months cheering for our favorite players on TV, we can’t wait to finally get up close to the action.  

Lucky for us, the US Open kicks off with an amazing event that combines both tennis and music:  Arthur Ashe Kids Day!  It’s one of our favorite events of the year, as they always do an outstanding job booking exciting young artists.  The event also raises money for charity, in the spirit of event namesake Arthur Ashe, as professional players and amateur youngsters from around the country compete in fun challenges to benefit various foundations. There are 2 stages at the event:  The main show in Arthur Ashe Stadium, which requires a ticket, and the Hess Express Stage on the grounds of the USTA, which is free and open to the public.

Musicians (Arthur Ashe Stadium): Ticket Required
Hunter Hayes
The Vamps

Free AJR Show at iPlay America in Freehold, NJ!

After a busy summer on tour with Lindsey Stirling, brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan are finally returning home to NYC to finish up their debut album (due out late Summer/early Fall) and hopefully gear up for a headlining tour of their own.

They’ll be having a show on Friday, July 18th at iPlay America in Freehold, NJ! The show is free, and you can reserve a ticket now to guarantee entry.  (So you really have no excuses to miss this one)  It’s just a hop, skip and a jump from NYC (make that a train, train and a cab) so make sure you take full advantage of Summer Fridays.

Boyz II Men to Perform on “FOX & Friends” All American Summer Concert Series June 20th!

Calling all 90s fangirls!  You’re going to want to tune into “FOX & Friends” this Friday morning, June 20th, because Boyz II Men are performing as part of their All American Summer Concert Series!  Or if you’re in NYC, head over to the Fox News Channel Plaza, 1211 Avenue of the Americas, by 7AM to watch the show in person!

Boyz II Men will perform some of their classic hits, as well as songs off of their upcoming album, “Collide.”  We’re hoping they do a little East Coast swag and play “Motown Philly” and of course, “End of the Road!”    We saw Boyz  II Men on The Package Tour with New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees last summer, and after all this time they’ve still got the right stuff.  (Yes we’re mixing boy band analogies.  It’s our blog).

MTV Artist to Watch: The Vamps at Highline Ballroom in NYC!

British band The Vamps (yes band, NOT a boy band) played to a sold out crowd at NYC’s Highline Ballroom on Sunday.  The show was part of the MTV Artist to Watch Series, which has recently featured artists such as Austin Mahone and Hunter Hayes.   We were thrilled to have the chance to see them again!   This wasn’t their first time playing in NYC:  Back in February, they played the Gramercy Theatre with AJR.  Since then, The Vamps released their debut album “Meet The Vamps,” which has been as high as #2 on the charts in the UK, and have been all over the world in support of their album.

The quartet, Bradley Simpson (lead vocals, guitar), James McVey (lead guitar), Connor Ball (bass) and Tristan Evans (drums) really mesh well together considering they found each other via social media about 3 years ago!  Each member has their own unique style and musical taste (James for example is a fan of country stars like Dan + Shay), yet the music The Vamps create is pure, catchy pop rock at its best.  The band’s musicianship, harmonies, and talent show that  this group is more than just another band creating a frenzy among teenage girls.

IMG_2384
Their high energy performance had the crowd dancing from start to finish!  The Vamps’ set featured all of their singles, including the latest “Somebody To You,” and the first song the band ever wrote together, “She Was The One.”  The crowd was singing along to every word, which is impressive for a band whose album hasn’t even been released in the US yet!    They have a great stage presence, interacting with each other and also with the lucky fans in the front row!

The Vamps also performed solid covers of The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside,” Simon and Garfunkel’s “Cecilia,” and a fun, rock version of Jason Derulo’s “Trumpet.”   When the crowd started chanting “take it off,” Tristan turned it into a jam session showcasing all of their musical talents, as Brad told the audience “let’s make some music together!”   If you haven’t met The Vamps yet, get ready:  they are most definitely the Artist to Watch in 2014!

Somebody To You
She Was The One
