Remember swooning over boy bands? Well, now it’s your daughter’s turn. At least it’s MY daughter’s turn to go a little ga-ga over gooey lyrics and synchronized dance moves.
The five member, Why Don’t We is coming to San Diego, and my 13-year-old is psyched. “They’re trending mom! They have like 4 million Insta fans. They’re the new One Direction,” she says.
Before forming their band in 2016, Jonah, Zach, Jack, Daniel and Corbyn were amateurs performing on YouTube and other social platforms. The most successful member, Daniel Seavey, sang his way to the top 10 of finalists on American Idol’s season 14. Now WDW is on their first American tour, and they are making San Diego their 2nd stop.
Although their songs appeal to the 8 – 16-year-old crowd, Why Don’t We call themselves a “man band” (instead of boy band). I’m not sure if that makes you more or less eager to snag a ticket to this Friday’s show for your tweens and teens, but I am pretty certain that your mom-cred will shoot way up if you do. Tickets start at $29.50 a piece. Get all of the details here.
