Parachute Concert – Denver, CO October 27, 2011

Hey Everybody!!

Last Thursday I had the great opportunity  to see Parachute in concert at the Marquis Theater in Downtown Denver.  I also was able to attend the meet and greet prior to the show.  Let me just say, it was an amazing day!

The meet and greet started around 4:00pm and lasted until 5:00pm.  Parachute serenaded us with the songs What I Know and White Dress.  The video below is of the performance of White Dress.  All the videos are courtesy of Lacey Eaton.  Thanks, Lacey!!

After the perfect private concert, the boys came out and met with us.  They took pictures and signed our posters and VIP passes.  Not only are these guys talented, but they are so incredibly sweet!!

Parachute consists of band members Will Anderson (lead vocals, guitar, keys), Kit French (keys, sax, percussion), Alex Hargrave (bass), Nate McFarland (guitar, vocals), and Johnny Stubblefield (percussion).

The real concert started at 7:00pm and was opened by a new band, Empire Kids (formerly The Rebels), based out of Boston.  They were really good. I look forward to hearing more from them.  After Empire Kids, Kate Voegele – who is on tour with Parachute – took the stage.  She was wonderful.  And finally, after Kate, Parachute took the stage and the crowd went ballistic (granted there were a lot of teenyboppers, but still).  🙂

Parachute was unbelievable!  They were so energetic, engaging, and talented.  Will frequently hopped into the crowd and interacted with us.  It was amazing.  Not only are these guys talented, sweet, and adorable, but they are incredible performers.  I cannot remember the last time I had that much fun at a concert.  I was really blown away!

Parachute has two albums out, Losing Sleep and The Way It Was. I highly recommend you check them out.  Also, they will be on tour with Kate for the rest of the year.  So, if you get a chance to see them, I urge you to go and check them out.  You will not regret it.

I hope you enjoy them as much I do.
