Bowling For Soup
Bowling For Soup has been one of my favourite bands since the early 2000s. I can't even remember how many times I have seen them live but I know that I have the most amazing and fun time when I have.
I consider them to be happy rock because that is what their music is, happy....... and about being the odd balls and drinking beer haha.
Their songs and live shows are some of the best music related memories that I have. My favourite being a gig that was on my birthday when The Bitch Song changed lyrics and when I met them backstage afterwards, they sang happy birthday to me. I was on such a high after I left that I got on the wrong tube home haha.
Back in the day (starting to sound old now) I was part of the BFS Army so had the extreme pleasure of meeting the band a few times and getting to tell each of them how awesome they were.
They have had a slight change in lineup, Erik Chandler, the bass player, left the band in 2019 and was replaced by Rob Felicetti. Not going to lie, it was super weird the first time I saw them live since the lineup change but Rob seems to have fitted in just fine and gave all he has for the crowd.
