I'm stealing my post title from Wes
because it is simply the best way to put it. Casey Shea
and Jeff Jacobson
from The Undisputed Heavyweights
played an acoustic show at my elementary school today. I'm sure it was the youngest, but not rowdiest, bunch they have played for. According to my second graders, the set was "awesome," "loud," "funny," and "so much fun." Desiree said that Casey and Jeff should "be very proud of themselves because they gave their best effort and didn't have stage fright." Although I was digging on "Latrigue," the definite highlight of the show for the kids was when Casey and Jeff played Outkast's
"Hey, Ya!" Some of the kids couldn't figure out when Outkast had the time to teach Casey and Jeff that song. Hmmm?As is usually the case at a Heavyweights show, some were pleasantly entertained...
...while others were blown away.
After signing autographs...Casey led the kids in a round of "Simon Says."
The show went well... except when Rafael dropped Jeff's guitar. But we won't talk about that.
There won't be any kids, but New York City can see all five Heavyweights at Rockwood Music Hall on Sunday, June 25th. The band will be recording a live EP. Hey, ya!
