Fresh Beat Band Live!

Hey, guys.  April has been crazy busy.  I've slept in a hotel seven nights the past two weeks on three different occasions.  I'm finally starting to feel a bit settled again.  And I'm finally catching up at work.  Whew!

We spent the weekend in Atlanta for a HUGE event Friday night...

The Fresh Beat Band!

Before they added our city to their tour, we bought tickets to see the Fresh Beat Band in Atlanta.  This was way back in November, so we've patiently waited almost half a year (crazy, right?) to finally see the Fresh Beat Band in concert.  For those of you who aren't up on the Fresh Beats (ha), it's a preschool musical show on Nick Jr.  But you're not gonna find any cheesey Barney-like songs (sorry, Barney).  The Fresh Beats have very hip hop and pop-like songs with a little classical, country, and everything else mixed in.  Let's just say that I MAY know all the words to all the songs.  And maybe the choreography, too.  Yeah.  So of course I was just as excited as M was about the show. :)


I bought her a personalized shirt off eBay for like $10.  We ended up buying an official tour shirt once we got there for double that price, but it was well worth it.

Big cameras weren't allowed, so all my pics and videos are from the iPhone.  I hate that I'm such a rule follower because the Cobb Energy Performance Center was not strict about cameras like they promised they would be in the email we got weeks before the show...several folks had them.

We had GREAT seats (fifth row!), so luckily there was no need for a serious zoom.  And with the exception of the two pics above, most of the phone pics weren't THAT bad. :)

Playing with her $10 glow stick.  I really should go into the business that sells those things...

The show was AMAZING.  

High energy all the way through.  And they sung most of their stuff live (no unnecessary little lip-syncing).

M sang, clapped, and danced right along with them.

Blurry, but by far my favorite picture of the night.

Since the YoGabbaGabba show back in October 2010, I'm a sucker for VIP packages.  So we did the afterparty with the toys, games, crafts, and food for the kids.  And of course...

..the Meet and Greet (which is really just a quick photo opp).  Very much worth it -- she LOVES that she got to meet the Fresh Beat Band.  She had a great time!

We did a few more things over the weekend (like spent time with family) that need a separate blog post, so I'll probably post again Friday night.  In the meantime, I'll leave you with some short videos from the show.  Fun fun!  Enjoy the rest of your week!

(Oh, and if you're trying to decide if you will take your kid(s) to this show, stop.  Go buy your tickets NOW.  Tickets are going fast for the shows that aren't already sold out.  So go.  Now.  Here.)
