Many of you reading this post may remember a pinnacle period in life…the days of 1999 and the corresponding years. This time was a special time for me because I was nearing the end to my high school career, gas was extremely cheap, we were on the horizon of a new century AND millennium (who could forget the whole Y2K debacle?) and music was great!

If you think back to the very early 2000’s, there was a show called “Making The Band”, BEFORE Diddy took over the show. The 1st iteration consisted of a boy band called O-Town that hailed from Orlando, FL and spawned a popular hit song “Liquid Dreams” in 2001.
Many teenie boppers at that time remember this because this was THE era for the mass resurgence of the boy band, and young girls were LOVING them. Well in 2003, the group decided to split and do their own solo thing, leaving their fans high and dry. That was until 10 years later when they reformed the group and started recording again. Fast forward 2 years, and now we’ve learned that O-Town will be heading on a U.S. tour.
