Our GenerationPosted: March 22, 2014
You should be sad if you missed Our Generation at the UMX. After an outstanding performance, we got the opportunity to interview them. Although they are between 10 and 14 years old, they definitely have old soles…Classic Rock old soles. BUT that was not the most surprising thing we learned. As many might assume, they were not friends at school who decided to form a band. They instead, were placed together as a band about 6-12 months ago by a company called Band Dynamics. The band is made up of 5, dare I say it, kids – but you would never know they were kids, their professionalism and abilities are far beyond anything you might refer to as kid. Abbey is the lead vocalist with her brother, Jude on guitar. They must have been destined for rock-hood, as they were named after the Beatles songs, Abbey Road and Hey Jude. Along with Abbey and Jude, Dane plays the guitar, Jason handles the beat on drums, and Addie plays the bass guitar as well as sings vocals. This 5-some gathers their influence from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fo Fighters and Fallout Boy, just to name a few. Don’t you worry, if you missed it today, they play Denver gigs about 2-3 times a month, be sure to check them out on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ourgenerationnation) to see when and where they are playing next.
