Named one of Billboard’s 2011 Artists to Watch, Andy Grammer is on the fast track to another big year, and Harford County residents get to be a part of it. On April 4, Andy Grammer will perform in concert at the APG Federal Credit Union Arena at Harford Community College starting at 7 PM. Indie-rock band Augustana, known for their hits “Boston” and “Sweet and Low,” will also be joining the show to make this a once-in-a-lifetime concert!
"The Andy Grammer performance will be our first concert in the new arena. We are very excited to have him appear along with Augustana. Andy Grammer was chosen because we thought he would appeal to our student population. The Harlem Globetrotters were our first official event in the arena, and that was a sell out. Everyone who attended really enjoyed the event, and many people were disappointed that they didn't purchase tickets early because it did sell out. We hope to have the same success with this concert," Harford Community College representative explained.
In 2012, Andy Grammer emerged as one of the biggest success stories in the music business. Performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (twice), and Good Morning America along with sharing the stage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat. As the first male pop star, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio with his first 2 singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me," Andy Grammer is known for his vibrant pop/rock/soul mix and free-flowing vocal delivery.
"I saw flyers posted about Andy Grammer coming to our school!! I can't wait, my friends daughter wants to go so bad, he is her idol. I think I will suprise her with some tickets!! I know it'll be awesome," Harford Community College student Shuriah Wallace said.
Tickets are $45-$95 and are available at tickets.harford.edu, the Harford Community College Ticket Office in the Chesapeake Center, or by calling 443-412-2211.
