Welcome to my blog, Rock on Boston!
I am currently a Junior at Endicott College in Beverly, MA, studying communications. For those of you who don’t live in Massachusetts, I grew up in the small town, Sudbury or also known as “the Bury.” I’m sure none of you have ever heard Sudbury but it’s about 45 minutes from Boston and Endicott is near Salem, MA, which I’m sure most of you have heard about.
As I grew up as a kid, I remember how my father would play: Train, The Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, etc… in my house. In my house, we have a cabinet that is filled with every CD you could think of and in my basement my every record you could think of. We’ve never used my record player but we will when that day comes. Every weekend, I would go to our CD cabinet and pick out a new CD and listen to new bands/artist for the week. I remember listening to Train’s album, My Private Nation, and Maroon 5’s album, Songs About Jane.
When I was in middle school my dad purchased tickets to see Coldplay perform at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA for my whole family. Even though we had horrible seats I was immediately hooked to the concert scene. I just loved watching the band perform live and being so close to them when they came close to our seats to perform a song. I loved singing along with the crowd and shouting the lyrics. It was a really special moment for me when I watched Chris Martin sing one of my favorite songs, “The Scientist.”
Concerts have been our thing since then. For my birthday present in high school he brought me to Train’s and Maroon 5’s concert.
I started to write this blog as a small project, some to do when I was bored and had some free time.
In high school, I began going to concerts in the New England area with my father to see our favorite bands perform. However, it can be annoying to go onto every venue’s website and see who’s playing. To save time for everyone I will post upcoming concerts/events that will occur in New England. I will be interviewing musicians/bands that people have either heard or not heard of.
At this point, I have been exposed to almost every genre of music, but the only genre I can’t stand is metal. I log onto Spotify and SoundCloud at least once a day so I can discover and find new artist and bands to listen too. I want my readers to do the same thing as me since there are so many out there. I’ve had the most amazing opportunity to talk to my favorite artists, along with meeting new ones. I love listening to their stories, become close with them, etc…
