Off we go!

After months (and months and months) of dormancy on our part, we are off to see the Jonai today! WOOOT!  It has been too long (last October! I saw Nick in January).

I can’t wait!

We’ve got a full day planned with the Road Dogs game followed by the show tonight in Camden (and maybe some shopping in Philly in between). We will be hanging out with Merry and E (who we’ve not seen for too long). It’s going to be perfect day for it! It is going to be AWESOME.

I will be making updates to the post throughout the e day – I am sure MM will keep the tweets flying as well.

Updates after the jump!

It was a beautiful morning in NYC, and fans poured into Rumsey Playfield to see JB and Demi Lovato perform on Good Morning America.

Sadly, my plans for spending my morning in Central Park with great friends and great music didn’t work out, but I could still watch it all unfold. OK, I slept through most of it, but I caught the gorgeous videos at abcnews.com, all of which I’ve included in this post.

It was the normal GMA setup, some chitchat, a few songs, a little more chitchat. They performed “LA Baby”, “Burnin’ UP”, “Can’t Back Down” with Demi (and some dancers – *cringe*), “SOS”, and “Please Be Mine” (swoon).

Yes, the dancers were scary, but I love Nick on drums and Joe on guitar. I am just going to have to come to term with dancers, aren’t I? *Sigh*, whatevs…they looked great, and sounded great.

Check out the performances and interviews after the jump.

Cambio.com … This just may not suck as much as Fan Family Experience!

OK, before you let loose in the comments calling me a naive Kool-Aid drinker, let me just say that my expectations were so low for today’s announcement that a well-produced two and half (or so) minute video filled with a bunch of my favorite people struck me the right way.

What we know:

  • It is a website that will have lots of stuff and has the possibility to be cool (or not).
  • “Cambio” means change (which makes you want to nibble on your finger nails), but it also means exchange (which I think is more of what they are going for).

Pros and cons for this not-yet-fully-revealed website, plus the announcement video after the jump.

Looking good out there!

So…still no definitive word on when we will next get to bask in the musical vibery of the Jonas boys et al, collectively or separately (can you believe “Who I Am” has been out for almost 2 months?  Where did the time go?) And the same goes for Bulldozer (we’re waiting! so patiently!) but this past week was a fairly busy one on an official level, anyway…

Joe & Demi surprised us (or at least me?) with an unexpected turn on the high profile (if not always hospitable) American Idol soundstage to perform their Friends for Change duet single “Make a Wave”. It was a polarizing choice for many fans, but they did an admirable job which received the usual fair balance of adoration & praise to criticism & disdain, from all the usual camps.  Joe redeemed himself at least a bit, in some eyes, for his less than stellar Idol judging stint, especially with the post-performance stage banter, and Joe & Demi continue to blur the lines & fuel plenty of chatter over their public/private pairing with a post-show visit to Ryan Seacrest (see below the chop).

The KCAs followed the typical awards show arc of a slow build to an ultimately anticlimactic result. The main benefit for Jonas fans was a new set of red orange carpet shots since – in contrast to their last visit to the KCA stage and their pretty adorable hosting duties at the Teen Choice Awards, what a difference a year makes! – they never touched the stage, neither to perform nor to collect a blimp in either of their nominated categories. (They were passed over as Favorite Musical Group in favor of the Black Eyes Peas, and Nick & Joe losing Favorite TV Actor to Dylan Sprouse.)  This all had a bit of a bizarro world tone to it, for anysuperfan who watched, but such is Nickelodeon, & kids, circa 2010. But I think Jonas fans and Jonases alike can easily take this “crushing defeat” with grace…right? 😉

Off the tube, we continue to be treated to pretty steady Twitter updates from Nick, Joe & Bulldozer. John Taylor celebrated his 28th birthday (Happy Happy, JT!).  John also gave confirmation that the suspected Papa Jonas Twitter is the real deal (and there’s some pretty sweet stuff in there). While Kevin remains….mysterious in that venue (love you anyway, Kevin!), is it just me or have Nick’s tweets been a little warmer, sweeter and less vague in the past few days?  I know I’ve enjoyed them.

All of this said, the biggest news of the week has to be saved for last.

You already know about it, I am sure. Like all good champions of their field, The Grog Blog has re-emerged from premature retirement. We have all experienced or heard of the power of JB bassist Greg Garbowsky’s blog in the past, and now the real deal is at hand again!!  If you haven’t yet, make sure to go back and read all of the old, now-revived posts (and videos!) before settling in for the future of Grog. And this is for you, Garbo:

After the jump, you’ll find a few videos from the weeks’ activities (Idol & KCA related).  What do you think of all these new developments?!

BOUNCE!

... B is for the “Bounce”, O is for “Opportunity”, U is for “Unity”, and N is for “Nutrition.” C is for “Community” and E is for “Everybody.”

I will NEVER get sick of this type of thing from the Guys.  Nick, Joe and friends (no worries – Kevin is in it too) explore their latent 80s hip-pop sides a little more deeply. I think they needed to add a line about the importance of cheese, but other than that it is a perfect parody/homage.

Here is some very special commentary from the younger generation brought to us by Gemrocks (Coolmom’s daughter, Spice, age 9):

It was a great video, hilarious from beginning to end, with wonderful choreography (Big Rob!).  As a Black-eyed Peas fan, I loved the first line.  Props to Nick, good disguise, I didn’t know it was Nick until the middle of the song.  Joe:  love the hair, it totally fits you.

Thank you Gemrocks for giving us the youth reaction! You rock!

Now, watch it again and again and again (all whilst bouncing of course) after the jump!

What a weekend!

It was so surreal. We got on the plane in dark, cold and dreary Philadelphia, PA – flew over the rainbow (aka Minneapolis, MN) – and landed in a vibrant, technicolor Oz (Las Vegas, NV) complete with Emerald City!

There were lions, fountains, and Jonas….OH MY!

It really goes without saying that the show was awesome. After seeing 6 Jonas Brothers shows of various types (in store acoustic, short set, full set), I feel confident in saying that a Jonas Brothers show is guaranteed to be a great show!

Get all of the details after the jump!

…because I was unable to go to the free concert the Guys gave last night at The House Of Blues in LA for their family, closest friends, and 800 very lucky fans.

The concert seem to have had a very laidback feel with lots of special guests and covers of favorite songs. It was really a celebration of music, love, and friendship resulting in what seems to have been an amazing experience. It was a party.

I really know nothing about the show other than what can be gleaned from some clandestinely recorded vids that have appeared on YouTube, so I apologize if I omit anything.

From what I can piece together the Guys covered John Mayer, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Switchfoot, Coldplay,  and Stevie Wonder with the help of Jordin Sparks, Demi Lovato, Jesse McCartney, Dan Aykroyd, Honor Society and Frankie J (no, not that one). We also get to hear JT and Ryan cover a classic.

Moreover, we get to see a whole new Jonas Brothers – where Nick messes up and laughs about it, Joe sings with beautiful melancholy, and Kevin belts out in a way that would make any red-blooded woman faint flat out.

All right, pick your jaw up off of the floor and follow me over the jump for vids! w00t vids!
