Hanson ‘Wintry Mix’ Was Perfect Mix of Old, New, and Holiday
So, obviously, I'm a little biased because I love Hanson, but I really do think this was my favorite show of theirs.
The 'Wintry Mix' show makes this my seventh Hanson show, I believe. I think I say this after every show, but I mean it this time, this was my favorite.
'Wintry Mix' really was the best title. It was the perfect mix of their older stuff, newer stuff, and of course, their Holiday stuff. For me, the Holiday stuff is what made it so special. They have two Christmas albums in their catalog, Snowed In in 1997 and Finally, It's Christmas in 2017 and as far as I know, I don't think they've ever done a Holiday tour! So this was epic for most of us fans! We've waited a long time to hear some of these Christmas bops live!
During their version of "What Christmas Means to Me" there is a breakdown segment where the music drops out and we all clapped along to the beat. I had a moment where I thought, "I have literally waited since 1997 for this moment." It was awesome.
There were two openers, Joshua and the Holy Rollers and Paul McDonald. Joshua and the Holy Rollers is actually fronted by the youngest Hanson brother, Joshua Mackenzie, also known as just Mac. Paul McDonald, you may remember from American Idol back in 2011. Scotty McCreery won that season.
Quick Concert Observations:
- I think Taylor has been working out. He grew some muscles.
- Taylor's hair flips changed something inside me.
- Thank goodness Zac recovered from his motorcycle accident. So good to see him performing again.
- I don't know who their bass player is, but he wasn't ugly. 😉
