My Favorite Artists

Friday, I travelled to Wilmington, NC to see Donavon Frankenreiter. He put on a wonderful performance and I was so glad I FINALLY got to see him. It completed my list of seeing all ten of my favorite bands.

Which leads to this post…this topic has come out several times this week so I thought, I’d write a post about it.

My favorite 10 bands of all time and my current 10 bands that I’m listening too. I really don’t see a difference but one person I spoke to said they had to have released a current album in the last year and I decided that it was an artist you listen to an entire album at least once a week EVERY week.

TOP 10 All Time Favorite artists in alphabetical order and the furtherest I’ve traveled to see them:
– Butch Walker (have only seen in Charlotte, NC)
– Donavon Frankenreiter (Wilmington, NC)
– Jimmy Buffett (Raleigh, NC)
