Fan of the Month January – Jess

By | January 1, 2013

Name: Jess
Location: Perth, Western Australia

What is the very first memory of Hanson that you have?:
I was up early on a saturday morning and there was a music video show
on the TV. All of a sudden, this video came on and it was MMMBop. I
sat and watched the video in awe and then I went onto the computer to
find out who these 3 long haired boys were…and I have been a fan
ever since!

How many times have you seen Hanson in concert? Favorite concert
I have seen Hanson twice in concert. The first one was in my home town
of Perth, Western Australia in 2005. It was such a great concert and I
will have wonderful memories of my very first Hanson concert. I went
travelling to the USA last year and I was fortunate enough to be able
to see them again in Anaheim CA at the House Of Blues. This was one of
the greatest moments of my life as I had waited a long time for it to
happen! I was so proud of myself as I had gone travelling by myself
and made my way to see my favourite band in their home country! I was
so shocked because my friends had tweeted the boys to say that I was
coming all the way from Australia to see them, and Taylor gave me a
shout out! Greatest moment of my life…. 🙂

UPDATE: I have now seen them 3 times in concert! I saw them on the 22nd September 2012 in my home town of Perth, Western Australia. I also won the chance of a meet and greet beforehand as I am an official fan club member, best moment of my life!

What is your favorite Hanson song, and why?:
It tends to change regularly as there are just so many great songs! My
favourite at the moment is ‘Minute Without You’, but MMMBop will
always have a special place in my heart!

Why do you like/love Hanson?:
Hanson are the reason I am so passionate about Music, they have been
there for 15+ years now and I couldn’t think about it ever changing.
They write, play, produce, sing and make brilliant music. They are
wonderful people that are so proud and passionate about their music,
other people’s music, causes and all that is inbetween. They are proud
of their fanbase and thank us endlessely for all the passion and hard
work we put in to getting the world to listen to them and their music.


How long have you been a Hanson fan?:
I have been a Hanson fan since the beginning, so for 15+ years
now…and counting!

Why should you be FAN OF THE MONTH?:
I feel that I am helping to spread the music of Hanson to my wonderful
country of Australia as well as the rest of the world. I can’t think
of anything else in this world that would be better than closing your
eyes and listening to a Hanson song…

State a piece of trivia in regards to you & Hanson (optional):
I got a shout out from Taylor at the House of Blues concert in Anaheim
CA on the 10th September 2011…I flew 20+ hours to see my favourite
