Cincinnati Written Recap by Seacrest Studios Intern, Jamie Flaugher
Seacrest Studios at Cincinnati Children’s had an amazing visit from lovelytheband! The trio instantly felt at home, inviting one patient, Eli, to get up close and personal with lead singer Mitchie’s guitar! Eli was able to strum the singer’s guitar, and Mitchie even gave him his guitar pick as a souvenir! After an awesome performance of the band’s song, “Broken,” they played “Love It or Hate It” in which they debated their preferences on: iPhones, cats, cold pizza, vinyl and so much more!
As they went through the game, the topic turned to the upcoming Halloween holiday. The patients got involved, going around and sharing their Halloween costume plans. During the meet and greet patients were able to share a little one on one time with the band while getting their pictures taken and autographs signed. Lani was super excited when she learned the band loved sloths. During her turn with the band, she showed them pictures of when she met a real-life sloth! As one patient was leaving she said, “It was the highlight of my week!” Cincinnati Children’s was buzzing after the epic visit with lovelytheband!
At Children’s National, in Washington D.C., the band didn’t hesitate to jump right on air with our patient DJs. The group shared that they had been on tour since March of 2018 and they will continue their tour until the end of the year. The band mentioned that they love being on tour with one another for so long, however they each still needed some down time every once in a while. Guitarist, Jordan Greenwald aka “DJ Jazzy J,” said he hops in his bunk while on the tour bus and pulls his curtain back.
The guys shared that video games also help them pass time while on tour and even named a few of their favorites including Zelda, Spider-Man and FIFA. We also learned how the guys would spend a $1 million lottery ticket. Drummer Sam Price “DJ Curls” said that if he won the winning ticket, then he’d create a video game center and would invite all of the patient DJs to hang out! A tremendous roar of excited screams and chants encompassed the studio as all the patient DJs and staff members began singing Happy Birthday to DJ Jazzy J because his birthday was only two days before his band’s Seacrest Studios visit!
Due to their love of hot wings, the boys were challenged to a fun and silly game of “Hot” or “Not.” The trio unanimously agreed that they loved Converse and that the shoes can be very versatile depending on your mood and fashion sense. We then learned that the band also loved romantic comedies and Christmas music. The guys were in the hot seat during the last question of the game when they were asked whether they considered Seacrest Studios “Hot” or “Not.” The band ecstatically shrieked that Seacrest Studios was indeed on their “Hot” list. The amazing visit ended with the band performing an acoustic rendition of their hit single, “Broken,” which is currently taking over the charts nationwide.
Thank you guys for swinging by Seacrest Studios in both D.C. and Cincinnati! We can’t wait to cheer you on as you finish up your tour!
