We the Kings at Macy's Westfarms Mall CT

If you were a teenage girl this weekend in Connecticut, the place to be was Macy's at the Westfarms Mall in Farmington, CT to see a FREE LIVE CONCERT featuring We the Kings.

We the Kings are an "Indy" band out of Brandenton, Florida, that feature a pop-punk-rock sound. Their  debut album was released in 2007 and included their first platinum single Check Yes Juliet which went on to sell over 250,000 copies in the U.S.

Today Macy's was rockin'!  There were over 300 in attendance, and many had lined up as soon as the store opened.  Maddie, Danielle, and Stephanie, from Farmington High School in Farmington were the first to arrive at 9am and had been planning to attend ever since We the Kings  first tweeted out in early October that they were coming to the girls' hometown. .
The girls were the first to procure the wristbands that guaranteed them entry to the meet and greet autograph session immediately following the show.

The line stretched all around the store! It was unbelievable how many people attended!

We also visited with two teens, Kelsey and Brittany, who traveled up from Cheshire CT to attend the Macy's event

Kelsey and Brittany are sophomores at Cheshire High School and both girls could have been featured in a fashion shoot for any of the trend-setting brands that surrounded the Macy's stage for the concert.
Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, American Rag, Jessica Simpson, Guess, Jenni, Material Girl and more!

Macy's brings all the top designers on board - and many of them are featured in the mstylelab section of the Macy's Junior department.

We the Kings were just as current as Kelsey and Brittany, and dressed in the casual comfortable style also symbolic of mstylelab at Macy's.  Wool caps, knit jersey, worn jeans, flannel and plaid shirts, cotton tees, and cool sunglasses were worn by various members of the band.

The band started right on time (Macy's does things right!) and played for nearly an hour, the showstopper was their hit single Say You Like Me and the entire 300+ in attendance sang right along.

The band's sound is equally current. There was the perfect blend of music and banter with the audience, with lead singer Travis Clark joking that "members of the band were nerds in high school who started a band as a way to get girls" and "the passer-bys at Macy's are wondering why Shaun White is singing".

After the concert the band arranged to stay to sign autographs for their faithful followers!

Were you there?  Wasn't it great?  What were your favorite songs?  
Who is your favorite member of  We the Kings?

Don't you love Macy's events!!

Tell me all about it in the comments section below! 


  1. A few years ago I realized I must be getting old when I had no idea who the musicians were who were getting nominated for Grammys. In fact, when I saw the title of this post I thought it was going to have something to do with Christmas :).

    It looks like everyone was having fun. Did you enjoy it?

    1. Honestly...YES*YES*YES! When I first read about the band I thought I might be out of my league attending this event... but the pop melody and lyrics were catchy and would crossover for all ages and genres. And the band members were adorable! I can honestly say I had just as good a time as all the teens there!

  2. The whole event looks fun. I'd love some more information about the Everywhere Society. Could you facebook PM me on it? Or link me up?

    1. Hey Chief Blonde - it sure was fun! Macy's and We The Kings are a winning combination! Will PM you now...

    2. Hey there! We would love to have you in the Everywhere Society! Email me at I think we may have met at a conference earlier this year. Were you at Blissdom, Blogalicious, Type A or BlogHer style suite??

  3. What a great event. I would have loved to get that close to my favorite crushes when I was that age. I could only see them at much bigger venues.

    1. Me too! My friend already told me the event reminded her of her Bobby Sherman crush and concert that her mother brought her to when she was a teen. Ahhh, sweet memories!

  4. Look like such a fun day with the girls (and the band!).

    1. Yes it was! Great music at a great venue! MACY'S!

  5. Who didn't have crushes on musicians during high school? For me, James Taylor was the ultimate, wounded singer-songwriter. I still love him! I wonder which of the young performers will have such enduring careers?

    1. I've always been a fan of Sweet Baby James, and that whole era of singer songwriters, Carly Simon, Carole King, etc.
