Seacrest Studio Intern, Yusuf Rowser
Hit punk-rock band All Time Low kicked things off by visiting Seacrest Studios here at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. All four members; Rian, Alex, Jack and Zack sat down to talk to the viewers and in-studio guests.
Lead vocalist Alex Gaskarth began things by speaking on how the band has been able to stay such good friends despite the increased fame and recognition. “We’re all just very lucky that we all became very good friends at an early age… It feels more like brothers than friends at this point.”
Studio staff member, Whitney Osborne, asked the band how their individual tastes in music have evolved since the band’s conception in 2003. “When we first started, I was sort of ashamed to listen to anything other than ‘punk music’ or ‘rock music,” drummer Rian Dawson stated. “But as you learn more about songwriting… A good song at its core can take so many avenues. We’ve all become a lot more broad in what we listen to, I feel.”
Whitney then shook the table by asking a staple question here at the Cincinnati Seacrest Studio – “What is each band members favorite Disney/Pixar film?” Alex and Jack both chose Toy Story. “[Toy Story] was one of the first Pixar movies, and we were probably around 7 or 8 years old” stated Jack.
To finish off their time in the studio, the band played “All Time Low or High”. A game where everyone guesses if the price of a product is higher or lower than the listed price. The band was shocked at the cost of a moon-bounce being close to $1000! All Time Low’s visit ended with the group having a meet and greet with the patients and signing autographs.
It was a great Friday afternoon that brought a vibrant energy to both the patients and the studio as a collective. Thank you All Time Low for taking time to come in and bring joy to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital!
