It feels like I’ve known them FOREVER!
The first time I discovered Plain White T’s was 2001, at a Tower Records in Schaumburg, IL, where this CD with a “STOP” sign on it was in the bargain bin. Took a look at it, said Plain White T’s atop of it and was on sale for $3.99. Why not, right?
Little did I know that years later, I would be working with the guys for one of our EXCLUSIVE After 5 Live Events and the rest is history!
Every time Plain White T’s are in town, I’m there working in some sort of capacity.
This time was Festa Italiana, where I was recognized by some fans before going on stage to introduce the band.
The girls introduced themselves, with their parents just a stones throw away, and had revealed that the entire family had been listening to me for years! Very flattering! They also REALLY wanted to meet Tom and the band because they were HUGE FANS of their music!
SO, what’s a DJ to do? I told the girls, if the opportunity arose, I would come get them so they could meet the guys and sure enough at the last minute, I got the green light!
Ran over to get the girls, tell their family and it was nothing but screams, squeals and thank you’s all the way backstage! :)
So a very big THANK YOU to Tom, Tim, Mike, Dave and De'Mar from Plain White T’s for taking the time to meet our winners, even the last minute ones!
