PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ―

A band of three brothers is in Pittsburgh today for a concert and to film a music video.

Hanson wanted to give fans a chance to participate in a music video and many took them up on that offer, but they’re no longer the band that had many people singing “MMMBop.”

The trio from Tulsa, Okla. has just released their eighth studio album called “Shout it Out” and tonight they will be playing a concert at the Carnegie Music Hall.

This morning, they stopped by the Carnegie Science Center to film a local music video version of their single “Thinking ‘Bout Something.”

Q92.9 came up with the idea and the band was all for it.

“The spirit of anybody can dance, anybody can do this. Let music [kind of] set you free a little bit. Cut you loose. So, the idea of them doing this, I think it connects with at least that part of the idea of the video,” Zac Hanson said.

The idea put them up close and personal with the fans.

“It’s all about the music and all about connecting with fans,” Taylor Hanson said.

Kat Shoop was delighted that one of her favorite bands allowed her to interact with them and be in the video.

“It’s like being 14 again. Every time I’ve seen them over the past 14 years, it’s the same feeling. It’s exciting,” Shoop said.

The feeling was mutual for the band.

“As an artist and a musician doing it, I think I [kind of] feel like it has a similar effect on you as it does on the people in the crowd. You’re playing it, but you’re enjoying yourself when somebody is smiling, when somebody’s dancing around having a good time,” Isaac Hanson said.

The concert kicks off at 5:30 p.m.
