Rachael and I just returned from a fab night out in Covington at Q102′s Annual Bosom Ball, which supports Breast Cancer Awareness and Research. When I heard the line up for this year’s show, I couldn’t wait to call Rachael and tell her the news. Every year, this event supports a wonderful cause and includes some great performers. One of our all time favorite bands, Parachute, made the list. As well as, Hot Chelle Rae, Christina Perri, Andy Grammer, and VV Brown. Personally, the lead singer of Parachute could have been the only one there and I would still have gone but on with the show.
VV Brown led the night off with some soulful ballads including “Shark in the Water”, which you may or may not have heard on your local radio station.
We were highly impressed with the next singer, Christina Perri, she has a great voice and a lot of stage charm. Her most popular song is “Jar of Hearts” but I have a feeling she will have many more to come.
And now to who we have all been waiting for (okay, maybe just me), Parachute. They are truly a talented group of musicians and their lyrics are refreshingly unique and meaningful in a world of just plain weird lyrics by other artists. If you have not heard of them before, you definitely need to check them out. Their sound is comparable to Augustana or Maroon 5 and their charm is incomparable.
Here is an upclose of the lead vocalist, Will. It may appear that he is about 3 inches from my camera. That assumption would be correct :)
Next up, Andy Grammer. His tracks are getting a lot of air time recently and he has an inspiring story, from singing on the streets in California to singing for thousands. His latest hit is, “Keep Your Head Up”. P.S. He has mad beat box skills.
Finally, to cap the night off was Hot Chelle Rae. These boys were full of energy and confidence and they’ve got a lot of stage presence to boot. One of their most popular hits is “Tonight, Tonight”. The picture is a little trippy but you get the idea…fist pump anyone?
In summary, it was a great night of lovely music for a lovely cause and Rachael and I can’t wait to see who will be there next year. As they said in the toast last night, “Cheers to a Cure”.
