Local Bands Just Want to Make it Big Time, Too

I went to Biloxi, Miss. yesterday. It was so much fun. It made me remember the first time I went to Biloxi with just my sister in 2013.

In 2011, my sister met a guitarist named Jacob. He was in a small, local, Christian band called Hanover Drive. I met the band for the first time the next year and thought they were all pretty nice. Ever since, I took my sister to see them every time they performed close to us.

The band Hanover Drive is from Biloxi, which is just over the Mississippi state line from us. It's made up of a brother and sister, their best friend and their former church youth leader. Another one of their best friends stepped down from bass player to take over as youth leader earlier this year. They're all such nice people.

When we went to Biloxi for the first time, they were having the release party of their first album. It was lots of fun. Such private events as album release parties and surprise birthday parties (our reason for going to Biloxi yesterday) don't get to be enjoyed by the fans of big bands like One Direction and 5 Seconds Of Summer. But if you have a local band that invites you to such events, I think you should take the chance and go to them. They may not play the kind of music you like, but they may be the coolest people you've met. And, really, all they want is to make it big time, too.
