I have to admit, I knew 3 things about this band before taking these pictures:
- Their fans are absolute die-hards. (I know this because every time I tweeted about them on Z90’s Twitter account, they BLOW UP our notifications.)
- When I posted that I was going to shoot this show on Instagram, I more than doubled my follower counts with fans all up in my DM asking me about it.
- My favorite photographer, Andy Deluca, was hired by them to be be their tour photographer, which upped the ante in my book, to be quite honest.
When you look at a band like this, it’s easy to judge them thinking something like, “It’s just another boy band.” But I have to say, it was really cool to be able to talk to some fans about their passion. I was instantly reminded of the days when my obsession over N’Sync completely consumed me and the silly cliché, “music brings people together,” which is absolutely 100% true.
