I was too young to remember the actual first concert I went to, so I’m gonna go with the first one I remember. My parents had taken me to see Winterjam, this big annual Christian-collective-genre type tour, in 2008. It was held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, IN (my hometown), and I remember sitting high enough up in the seats that my knees felt weak.
I was around 11 years old at the time, so I didn’t have any real notions about the artists, just that we were going to a concert. There were 7 or so acts plus a speaker, so about midway through the night I was pretty bored being that young…until a band called Skillet took the stage. They were so different from any of the other bands that night. They were running all over the stage, they had this singer that played bass, and there was pyro. They were doing powerslides and throwing guitars. The energy was unmatched, and right then and there I knew I had to figure out how to do that.
Later that year I got my first bass guitar, and shortly after, joined my first band.
