Ever since I can remember, I've been a huge fan of Halloween. Halloween is this Sunday and I thought this weeks blog would be perfect for focusing on that! When it comes to this day I'm all about going all out 110% -- picking out your pumpkin and making the raddest jackolantern possible, watching the scariest movies you can find, everything! Some of my favorite costumes when I was little I were the red Power Ranger, Raphael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Dracula. (I know very spooky haha. I try.)
When Sing It Loud became a band I found out that everyone in the band shared the same Halloween spirit as me! The first year we were on tour with Cobra Starship and the five of us in the band were the bananas in pajamas. We used the theme song as our intro. I must say, it was off the chain! Haha.
Last year, we decided we needed to up our game while we were on tour with Forever The Sickest Kids so we were Scooby Doo and The Gang! Our keyboardist at the time was sick and had just jumped back on the tour with us. Instead of having the straight up Scooby Doo costume we got him a Sick Dog costume. He was a sick Scooby Doo.
Somehow during our set I managed to fall off the stage. I was dressed up as Daphne. Imagine a guy in a purple dress falling off a stage at a House Of Blues venue. It was quite the sight, to say the least. I remember walking off of the stage and thinking to myself man, "I'm one of the the only guys I know that has ever fallen off of a stage in dress before." haha. This holiday is one of my favorites and I thoroughly enjoy all of the festivities that comes along with it. Everyone have an incredible and safe weekened!
What are you being for Halloween this year?
