Two hours away free concert I'm so excited! It kinda makes up for them canceling the San Fran FMC show! Except now I might have to go to the Jonas Brothers concert cuz it would be a shame to be in Sac on the day of the concert and not go....back to news
From NJ Star Ledger: The band Honor Society is on two tours at the same time. The quartet is joining Jordin Sparks as an opening act for the Jonas Brothers’ arena tour, which comes to the Izod Center in East Rutherford on Tuesday and Wednesday. Simultaneously, it is headlining its own “Full Moon Crazy Tour,” which consists of shows in the same areas the Jonas Brothers hit.
On Tuesday, for instance, the band — which plays catchy pop-rock music and power ballads like the Jonas Brothers — will perform in Secaucus in the afternoon, then head over to the Meadowlands. And on July 22, the day after the Jonas Brothers complete a three-night stand at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, Honor Society will headline at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom.
Proving that there is no rest for an up-and-coming rock band, on Thursday — a rare day off for the Jonas Brothers — Honor Society will open for Mitchel Musso at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson.
The band, which is based in Midland Park, has not released an album yet. But as proteges of the Jonas Brothers — drummer Alexander Noyes used to be a member of the Jonases’ touring band, and the group will release its album on a new label the Jonases are creating — Honor Society has a built-in following.
The band’s songs have received more than 3 million plays on its MySpace page (MySpace.com/HonorSociety). Helping to build buzz, the Jonas Brothers made a cameo appearance at Honor Society’s February show at the Fillmore at Irving Plaza in New York.
The band only gets to play four songs at Jonas Brothers shows. But at its own gigs, says Noyes, “It’s going to be a full set of Honor Society music. There’s a lot more leeway in the set, in what songs we’re going to be doing. We’ll do all the songs off of our album, which comes out this fall, and a lot of cover songs.”
When Noyes left the Jonas Brothers about three years ago, he didn’t do it to join Honor Society. He actually left the band, which had not yet become a pop phenomenon, to attend Ramapo College of New Jersey, in Mahwah. But a year later, Honor Society members Michael Bruno (vocals, guitar), Jason Rosen (keyboards, guitar) and Andrew Lee (bass) were looking for a drummer, and a mutual friend introduced them to Noyes.
“They invited me to an audition, and I showed up, and we really clicked musically,” he says. “So we decided to make Honor Society the new project.”
The Jonas Brothers, music-business veterans despite their youth, have provided both professional and personal advice.
“From the performing aspect, I think the biggest piece of advice is, when you go out onstage, and there’s anywhere from 15,000 to 40,000 people who are pumped to be there, listening to your music, you have to know how to pace yourself, pace your energy onstage, to give the best performance possible,” says Bruno.
He adds that the brothers have helped Honor Society learn “how to reach everyone — all the way at the top, all the way in the back — and how to give people an experience they’ll remember.”
[Mahwah. That is such a cool city name. Mahwah. Sounds like evil laughter. I'm sorry, I'm hyper. Bear with me.]
Guess what Honor Society did todaay (besides from playing in Milwuakee which I can now spell thanks to the many tweets about Milwuakee). They were on TV! Of course the video isn't working for me but...here you go!
And another SAYNOW from Joe Jonas.
Ummmmm they played at the Mall of America yesterday (whoops, I forgot to update yesterday...oh well). Okay so here is a video via HonorSocietyOnline with a Behind the Scenes interview and a little snippet of Where Are You Now (which is awesome. Maybe my new favorite song). I love her accent...and Jason is such a rock star...sunglasses inside...psh
Have a trailer for BandSlam (also via HonorSocietyOnline.com). That beginning song is made of awesome
