Our chance to see them in concert came this past June when they put on a show in South Ogden. Not only was it close to our house, but it was an all-ages show. To top it all off, the show was FREE!
Todd and I were excited for the concert and we made preparations for a fun event. We knew that we would probably be able to talk to some of the members of the band, so the first thing we did was go on their website and learn the names of all the members. We also familiarized ourselves with some of their lesser-known songs that aren't played on the radio. The last thing we did was make preparations for our pre-concert tailgate party.

The concert was fantastic. We knew almost all of the songs and sang along to some of them. The crowd was pretty small, but they were enthusiastic. They all cheered and sang, and some of them danced.
After the concert we got to speak to some of the band members and shake their hands. Todd brought his Royal Bliss CD--along with a marker--for the band members to sign. The intent was to get an autograph from all of them, but we ended up only getting one from the lead singer. The other guys didn't really stop and talk to people. However, we did shake their hands. I hope they were flattered that we knew their names. That I could tell, no one other than us even tried to speak to them.

For Todd's birthday, I framed the autographed CD. I included the cover of their album and hung it on his wall. It turned out nice, I think.
