I remember when this was every other band’s crowd. We opened the show and we got about 15 minutes each night to prove ourselves. The night’s that we spent wondering if anyone even cared enough to at least say hi when they passed by our merch booth on their way out the door. And all the times that I ended up just giving away t-shirts because counting dollars and change in front of people makes me nervous… it STILL makes me nervous.
Now, when we drive up to venues, I see our band’s name on the marquee. The same band that practiced in Jeremy’s living room ‘til his parents said we needed to go home. A lot of times there’s already a line of people waiting for doors to open. And we always always get to play an encore. (Well, what do you expect when we save our biggest song for dead last, haha).
Maybe I should’ve written this on Thanksgiving…? I feel so blessed, so empowered, and so loved by all of our fans. Thank you for giving us a constant reason to be grateful. I never want anyone to be able to say that we don’t realize what we have. So, every now and then, just expect to see me get all sappy and lovey dovey and let you all know that we feel you here with us all the time. Love you wonderful people!!
