Wow. What an incredible experience to not only spend time with friends exploring Amsterdam and Paris, but we saw my brother’s band, Youngblood Brass Band, play in both cities. My favorite part was not just watching the band, but seeing how excited the fans were to be there. In Amsterdam, I asked a few people if they had seen the band play before. One guy said him and his friend have been listening to their music for 10 years but this was the first time they’ve seen them. Another guy in the front row with his friends told me they started a brass band and love Youngblood. They even play a few of their songs.
They played at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris which sold out to over 800 people. While everyone was waiting for Youngblood to come on stage, people started chanting one of their most well known songs, “Brooklyn”. What a sight to be there to see it all.
They are touring all over Europe until the first week of November. Check out their schedule if you’re over there!
