Darling Parade & Weekend in Nashville



Tomorrow afternoon I am going to Nashville to 1. See one of my best friends, Jennie and then 2. (the main reason I am going . . .) to see my brother's band, Darling Parade play at the Hard Rock.

Right before Christmas my brother went to Nashville to try out for the drummer for this band, Darling Parade. Their drummer was quitting and they were desperately searching for one. My brother, Casey has always loved music and has such a passion for it. He is a drummer and a damn good one if I do say so myself! So . . . I am going to see him play Saturday night and the icing on the cake is that my parents are flying in to Nashville to see him play too. There are going to be some important record people there this weekend, so it's kind of a big deal!

Darling Parade gets compared to the group Paramore a lot. Some what of the same type of music, but I guess since DP's lead singer is a girl, that's part of the reason they get compared to Paramore too.

I am so excited to see them play. My brother has only lived in Nashville and been with the band for a little over a month and things are moving really fast for them and it's all just an exciting time. This is a pic from one of their gigs a couple weeks ago - not the best quality but just had to show it. Oh and he had to get a new set of drums . . . I LOVE the ones he picked out! They are sweet and look even better in person!


If anyone is interested, you can download their song "Lose You" by Darling Parade for FREE!! You can also get their CD on line, all you have to do is download "Lose You" at Reverb Nation, then go to iTunes and search Darling Parade and buy the cd! It's $5. Click the link to download and tell all of your friends! http://www.reverbnation.com/playlist7?artist_id=428011


My favorite songs by them are Bells Are Ringing, Far Away (which was featured on an ad for a new TV show on the Sci-Fi Chanel) & Tangled. You can hear all these on their Myspace page too . . . http://www.myspace.com/darlingparade

Oh and if you do visit their Myspace page, my brother is not in the main photo yet. They just had a photo shoot the other day so their new group pics should be up soon! Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'll be back Sunday or first of the week for an update!

Cioa!

Have fun! I love Nashville! Luckily, my in-laws live about 45 minutes west of there so every time we visit, we can never leave without making the trip up.
