Everyone of these kids needed a place to feel a part of something. This is what that tour does. It offers those who need a voice a day to be heard - amongst those who can empathize. Best part - watching the parents who do not want to be here come here to support the child they might not fully understand.
So many people wish the best for you. The support is truly appreciated. The young lady in this picture is helping us get the best. Everyday she travels with the band. She stays with us on the 18 hr days and puts up with four incredible egos. She is the reason a band like us makes it through touring. Thank you.
This is where I saw my very first concert. Before I knew I even wanted to be a musician. Now I’m on stage at Nikon Jones Beach. I am seeing what so many incredible bands have seen before. Most importantly - I can see the seats from that first concert. I can see where I sat and where my father sat. Day 1.
p>A week away from leaving and spending the day with Ava. We are grabbing some last minute items and listening to The Swell Season. She doesn’t seem to mind. There are so many things that pull you away - and then there are the things that always bring you back. I told her if she misbehaves while I’m gone I am going to take her back to the shelter. This was her reaction.
