AMOS Hello CMA Festers!!!
This Blog is dedicated to the wonderful Amos Heller, well known for his Bass playing skills and mostly seen on tour and doing gigs with Taylor Swift. :) He is after all in the Agency :)
Well Amos let his followers know he would be playing at 12th and porter on Saturday night. I’m so glad I had the chance to go, because I’ve seen so many people tweet about playing there. It’s one of those things you hear about and then get a chance to finally see in person.
Although it’s just a little live bar, nothing overly unique about it. Just a place where many of our favorite artists started out playing. :) I thought more people would show up to support Amos, but I guess you can’t blame them for going to LP field where many other acts like Hunter Hayes, Faith Hill and others were performing that night.
I walked there from Downtown. Wasn’t in a huge rush and plus those taxi rides add up. A little walk never hurt anyone!! When I arrived, Belle and Brandi were already there and they said Amos had already went in to sound check and they got to talk to him for about 15 mins or so. Also Kara was coming!!! So excited!!! I love the Agency Wives :)
Well my phone was dead so i went to the restaurant across the street to go to the bathroom and then i charged my phone for about half an hour. lol When i went back Belle and Brandi said I missed Amos again!! DOH!!! Well soon we went inside then had to wait a lil bit for the venue part to open. We wanted to make sure we were right by the stage… although we didn’t really have to fight any one off for it. lol Pearl Heart Played First. They were 3 girls and they sounded awesome!! you can check out their music here http://www.pearlheartmusic.com/ The Venue was Pretty dark with not a lot of lighting on stage so I didn’t really take any pictures or what not. There were some other performers as well.
Amos Came Back and he saw me and came over and said hi :) He said Kara was finishing up at work and then heading over. :) yay!! So another fan was nearby and asked Belle to take a picture of him and Amos, then I think he saw Kara come in. And asked is that Kara and saw her go up the stairs. Then I saw Grant and Claire upstairs in this balcony type place!!! What?! No way?! Belle and brandi didn’t think we could go up there… as if it were reserved or something, but I thought it would be ok. Grant always says to come say hi and he doesn’t bite. :)
So I went and asked someone if we were allowed to go up the stairs and someone was like why not, everyone else is. lol So I went back and told them it was ok and we went up and said hello! :) I asked Grant if he remembered my name and he said he knew my twitter was Jencita, but didn’t know if that was my name and I told him it was. :) I couldn’t believe he knew who I was :) and he thanked me for being so supportive and that he always sees my tweets and stuff. I told him his tweets get sent to my phone and that he’s funny. :)
I gave Kara such a big hug!! and we talked about Leslie’s wedding. Leslie married Daniel (Taylor’s percussionist) and she went to the wedding so she showed me some pictures :) I told Kara she was my favorite part of the night <3 <3 I just get so excited seeing the wives. I think they are the sweetest people ever and support their men so well. :) I guess because they made me feel so special, I just get so happy to see them. :)
It was so much Fun To hang out with them all. We just stayed there with them and watched Amos perform. We got to take pictures too and then Liz even showed up with her boyfriend (sorry boys). And she came right over and gave me a hug and everyone and then she was like “I don’t know who you (guys) are.” lol in the most friendliest way possible and as it was loud, I said into her ear “Jencita” and she said “ohh I didn’t know you were coming!.” lol and I just laughed lol. I didn’t know she was coming either!! I got to talk to her a lil about Charlie Worsham and how he had a show the next day and she should come. And she told me how talented he is and I told her I’m on his street team. :) It took like 3 times to take a picture with Liz! thank you for being patient!! My flash wasn’t on or something crazy! She was definitely having a good time!
It was fun to watch her, claire and Kara go downstairs and start dancing.
Here’s a video of that!!
Here’s another video of Amos performing
Agustin aka The Swift Agency showed up just before Amos went on. He saw Liz and Claire and went and asked for a pic…. so he was pretty much in Heaven! (He <3 Liz… shhhh #YouDidntHearItFromMe).
Well after Amos was done we decided to go down to a stand by the stage and let them do their thing while we watched the next act. Before Amos left he came over and said goodbye to us which I’m pretty sure is the sweetest thing in the world.
I wanted a picture with Amos and Kara :)
He by no means had to do that and I seriously gained more respect for him because of that. :) It was so awesome to see him Jam out on stage and just focus on him. A lot of times it’s hard to take in everything when you’re at a Taylor Concert because you don’t just love Taylor, you love everyone in the Agency. it’s all just one family. That’s why I’m so glad I was able to go to multiple shows last tour and get to take different pictures each time I went. You can focus on different parts you didn’t see. So it was really fun to watch Amos just totally rock it! He even put his leg up on the stage and went to town jamming.
I recorded some songs for you all so You can pretend you were there. :)
Here’s a Song called Where Was She
It really pays to support the Agency, not just when Taylor is there… but even if she isn’t. Even if they never play with Taylor again, if I had a chance to go and see them I would. They are such nice people and it’s hard out there as a musician. When you’re not on tour with someone, you’re not making money. You get other gigs and play other shows. So I know it means a lot to them to have people come watch them, and be there for them. They’re after all part of our family too. :) #SupportTheAgency :)
OMG And um Brittany and Mike are having a baby!! I’m so freaking excited!!!! :) I think Kara said in September? Maybe? I’m not sure now but how adorable!!!! awww They all need to get on twitter more.. . seriously this kind of thing needs to be announced lol #WhenTheyPointToMyPicturePleaseTellThemMyName :)
