What is the very first memory of Hanson that you have?:

Seeing a picture of them in a magazine towards the end of 1996.. i just remember seeing it and going “ohhhh, cute boys”.. lol

 

How many times have you seen Hanson in concert? Favorite concert

memory?:

26 times.. one of my favorite concert memories would have to definitely be getting reporter in 2008 during the Walk Around The World tour. I never expected that to happen to me.. AT ALL… and during the interview, them singing some Bee Gees to me was pretty amazing =)

 

What is your favorite Hanson song, and why?:

oh that is so hard for me to say.  Because i can relate to sooooo many of their songs. I guess i will just go with my favorite song off of Underneath which is When You’re Gone. The first time i heard that song, i fell in love with it. The lyrics, the music, just everything about the song pulled me in.. But in all honesty it is VERY hard for me to just pick on song.

 

Why do you like/love Hanson?:

I love them because they never fed into everything with being a major music success.. They could have done so many things but they chose not to because it was more about the music for them.. They didn’t care about doing things that some artists did back then and still do today.. They were always true to themselves and wrote all of their own music and played the instruments themselves. My respect for them grew even more when they broke away from the major label and started 3CG. That was a huge risk for them. Im so glad it was a successful risk. Their charitable work for AIDS/poverty in Africa is inspiring. Their simple actions as well as us, the fans actions with the walks, have made impacts over their in communities and its just amazing to see people coming together to help. I could keep going but i think i will leave it at that so i don’t write a book =)

 

How long have you been a Hanson fan?:

oh since 1996

 

Why should you be FAN OF THE MONTH?:

Im a music feen. I love supporting bands/artists that i love. Im always letting people that aren’t really fans listen to new music the guys put out to see ihow they react. Especially if those people hear something that they weren’t expecting and seeing their reaction like “wow, that was a really cool song”.. I know with No Sleep For Banditos, ive actually had a non fan say that the song “No Sleep For Banditos” made her zone out and just get lost in the song.. which i totally wasn’t expecting that because i really thought that she wouldn’t like any of it..But its always so cool when you can turn someone on to music that you really didn’t think that they would like it. I love getting independent artists music out their for others to hear.. i love promoting music, especially Hanson

 

State a piece of trivia in regards to you & Hanson (optional):

I was given a long lecture by Zac on the importance of sleep after not sleeping for 63 hours
