Well, they were kinda terrible. Audrey loves music and loves to dance, but this band was constantly stopping the music asking for audience participation. I swear we were listening to them scream annoying questions at the audience more than we were hearing music.
I felt like a drunk in the lawn seats at Alpine Valley, "Shut up and plaayyyyyyyy!"
The special needs arm of our park district takes a group of disabled adults to these concerts, and we always sit by our peeps for the show. We like to be amongst our own and sometimes we even know some of the aids. Anyway, no matter what the question, one of the guys behind us would repeatedly yell out at the top of his lungs, "BAG OF POTATO CHIPS!". Which I thought was the most awesome thing because the singer did not know what to do with this.
They started singing "The Wheels on the Bus":
"Who else is on the bus? C'mon!"
"BAG OF POTATOOOO CHIIIIIIPS!"
I wanted to yell out "Free Bird", but I knew that they'd just take it as a suggestion. "The free bird on the bus goes tweet, tweet, tweet, all through the town." So I jumped on the potato chip bandwagon.
"BAG OF POTATOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPPS!!!!!!!"
We love our peeps.
Coming tomorrow, Part II: The Hokey Pokey, the ultimate party song or a kid-with-no-body-awareness' worst nightmare?
