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 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.
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!
