American Dream Tour | New York City

On August 8th, 2014 many different groups of people and music came together at Irving Plaza. This show was very unique because all four groups were different genres of music with different fan bases. The crowd was split into four invisible sections and after each performance the crowd became one fan base for all four groups.

The first group to perform was Patent Pending. An American pop punk band from Mount Sinai, Long Island New York. They formed in 2001 and are still going strong.During the show they played (Hey Mario, Douchebag, Brighter and more). They have been on many tours, even in the United Kingdom and Germany. They will be returning to these places starting in October. Over the years the band has released nine albums. The songs in these albums are very catchy and funny but others are sometimes serious. The serious songs have important messages and many people of their fan base say “these guys saved my life”. The second performance was by Tiffany Houghton. She is a recording artist who lit up the room when she sang. While having a country- like voice her music is a mix of pop and country. On August 13th, 2013 she released her debut single on iTunes. She started writing at a young age went to Booker T Washington Arts high school in Dallas, Texas. Since then she has opened for many national recording artists like Joe Nichols and Jake Miller. During her performance the crowd went wild and she knew how to keep them interested. Her song Band Boy had everyone singing along far after the song was over. The third performer this night was Action Item. A band from Bergen county New Jersey. They formed in 2007 and are still a band today. The band started as a five-piece but are now down to four due to creative differences. But don’t worry everyone’s still friends. When they performed you could hear everyone in the crowd singing along. These guys knew how to get the crowd going. The band has four albums and many debut singles. Their music genre is always mistaken for just pop but they are a pop/punk group. The headliners of the show was MKTO. Formed between 2010 and 2012 the name mkto comes from their initials (mk) Malcolm Kelly (to) Tony Oller. They also have stated the letters stand for Misfit Kids and Total Outcasts. They are an American music duo mostly consisting of pop sometimes hip hop and r&b. Their debut single ‘thank you’ was released January 2013. There follow up single ‘classic’ was released June 2013. There self-titled debut album was released January 30th, 2014. They were the last to perform they came back to the stage after being called for an encore by the fans. At the show each performance was incredible. The crowd loved all four groups so much that after the show was over many fans stayed to meet them. The groups were so delighted to say hi and take pictures with their fans even meeting new fans for the first time.

The Resolution Tour : January 5th New York City Review

The Resolution Tour : January 5th New York City Review

To start off the night opening act Deleasa hyped up the crowd and completely rocked the stage. I have heard about him quite a few times before this and was thrilled to finally be able to see him perform live.  Soon after Mikey’s set word around the venue was that Kevin & Danielle Jonas showed up to support their brother/ brother-in-law. Sure enough they did.

Next up was Hello Highway, after following Daniel for 9 months prior to being able to see him perform live I was very excited to catch his set. For this tour his friends in Fourth and Coast were his back up band, and in all honesty I couldn’t be any more proud of how Daniel has grown as a musician.

After that Before You Exit, the youngest band on the tour hits the stage. For a group of teenagers in the music scene they definitely have a good grip on what they’re meant to be doing.  The boys in BYE make sure they have the whole crowd singing along for at least one song . I’m pretty sure ” End Of The World” and it’s “na na na na na’s” catch everyone’s attention.

I’ve been following Paradise Fears since early 2010, from following tours of bands they idolize to actually touring with said bands. I can’t even imagine what that success feels like to them, in my eyes I have never been more proud of these six guys from South Dakota. As Paradise Fears takes the stage emotions build up and by the time the sing “Sanctuary” everyone is crying happy tears. The stage presence of Paradise Fears is incredible.

Last, but most certainly never least : Action Item takes the stage, I can’t help but get chills. In April of 2010 I interview the guys and they said they’re ” a long way away from having our own headlining tour” and here they are on the stage in front of me playing a sold out New York City show on their second headlining tour. If that’s not success then I don’t know what is.  I’d have to admit Action Item’s stage presence has improved since early ’10 and is the best I’ve ever seen. They played a set of 10-12 songs, including some covers, as well as a special guest during Marching Band.

Each band on the Resolution tour performs with so much heart. I highly suggest making it out to a Deleasa, Hello Highway, Fourth and Coast, Before You Exit, Paradise Fears and Action Item show in the near future, or whenever they’re in you’re area. It’ll give you a feeling of happiness I can’t put into words.
