All this week, The Morning Waking Crew is giving away tickets to The Band Perry at the Bank of NH Pavilion at Meadowbrook. 

If I'm not mistaken, it was 2009 that Kimberly, Neil and Reid stopped by Studio Big. They were on what the business calls a 'radio tour.'  They were new to the music scene and played a few songs for us in a conference studio.  All of us knew after that meeting, the trio was heading toward the big time.  The harmonies were amazing and they just had that star quality.

Well, now is your chance to see them in person.  On Sunday, August 3rd, the siblings will be making a stop at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook.  Be listening this week for your chance at tickets.  If you want to make sure you get seats for the show, you can always order your tickets online.


Mostlly sunny and 80...sunshine in the North Country with a high of 79.
