- Adventures of Don & Maria -
Maroon 5 | University of Tennessee | Knoxville, TN
Breaking Benjamin | Harrah's Casino | Cherokee, NC
This concert was epic. It was my first time seeing one of my all time favorite bands, Breaking Benjamin, and they were playing very close to where I live. There were so many people jumping around, we could feel the floor shaking. We also ran into our good friends and clients Shawn & Joy Burrows. At the merch booth, they were selling an autographed guitar with passes to meet the band for you and 10 friends. This was $500 bucks. Problem was, I was broke as a joke and didn't have the money to meet them that day. I vowed to one day meet them and tell them how they help change my life, which I did a year or so later at a VIP Meet & Greet at the Orange Peel. I did manage to snag a guitar pick that I keep on a necklace and wear occasionally to shows. I showed them this necklace at the Meet & Greet.
Bone Thugs N Harmony | The Orange Peel | Asheville, NC
This concert was the most memorable because it was the concert where I decided that I was having fun without alcohol and didnt need it or want it. 3 years later, I am still without alcohol and I feel great. I couldn't imagine being wasted when my favorite rap group of all time came out, and I certainly made the right decision. The group was short a few members, but I mainly wanted to see WishBone, so all was good, since Wish was there and rocked it. This was the first time Maria and I had attended a show together. This was also my first visit to The Orange Peel. I don't think I even grabbed any souveniers either, I was just so stoked to see Bone and caught up in the moment. Video Below.
