Heffron Drive’s “Happy Mistakes Unplugged Tour” Swings Into NYC

Heffron Drive kicked off their Summer mini-tour last night in front of a sold out crowd at NYC’s Webster Hall.  The tour is in support of the “Happy Mistakes Unplugged” album that bandmates Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt released earlier this year.   They played the full album from start to finish on acoustic guitars, bringing their full band along for the show.  The enthusiastic crowd sang along to every word.   You could tell it was an album they had lived with for a while.  Kendall and Dustin were appreciative of their support, thanking them for being there and that they could tell the crowd appreciated the band coming out as well.  It was a love fest all around.

When it comes to crowd interaction, artists either have it or they don’t.  Heffron Drive completely nailed it, responding to whatever the crowd shouted out without missing a beat, having small conversations with fans near the stage, and taking time to introduce each song.  It made the show seem even more personal and intimate.

Highlights of the set included a stripped down performance of “Could Be Home,” which Kendall performed solo.  He said he wanted to have at least one track on the album that had “one vocal, one guitar, one take.”   More up-tempto tracks like “Had To Be Panama” and “Nicotine” had the whole place rocking, acoustic or not.  The album features a duet with Kendall’s Big Time Rush bandmate Logan Henderson, who sadly wasn’t available for the show to sing his part.  But no worries – the crowd filled in for his parts on “Passing Time” just fine!

Kendall Schmidt Releases “Blame It On The Mistletoe”

We always try to add some new Christmas music to our playlists every year, to go along with the essentials.  (That list would include *NSYNC’s “Home For Christmas,” Hilary Duff’s “Santa Clause Lane,” and “Music From The O.C. Mix 3: Have A Very Merry Chrismukkah.”) So we were thrilled to hear that one of our favorite boyband members was releasing a Holiday single!

Kendall Schmidt, from Big Time Rush and Heffron Drive, just released “Blame It On the Mistletoe.”   The track will definitely get you in the Holiday spirit.  Listen below and pickup a copy on iTunes now!

And if you’re feeling nostalgic for BTR, watch their performance of “Beautiful Christmas” from the National Tree Lighting, complete with matching tuxedos. (#boybandsforever)

Pre-Order Heffron Drive’s Debut Album “Happy Mistakes” Out September 9th!

Heffron Drive announced that their debut album, “Happy Mistakes,” will be released on September 9th!  The album was a long time coming, as band mates Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt have been making music together since 2008.  They put the project on hold so Kendall could join a little group named Big Time Rush, but now Heffron Drive is back in full swing.   We love that they had a fan design the album art.  Listen to their latest single, “Parallel” below!

We’re looking forward to finally getting studio versions of “One Track Mind” and “The Art of Moving On,” which we’ve only ever heard performed live!   Check out the full tracklisting, for the regular and deluxe albums, below.
