Imagine Dragons

Guess who was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night as the music act. It's a band who I've listened to for a couple of years and has gotten bigger and bigger in the music scene. They started out in Provo, and then moved to Las Vegas--for most of that, being an independent band, but now they've signed onto a major label.  Their lead singer and the guitarist (Dan Reynolds & D. Wayne Sermon) are both LDS and they don't write/sing songs with swear words. Wow! Their success is kinda following in the pattern of Neon Trees, so it's looking good.

And the name of this band????  (Okay, you might have figured it out by the name of the post)

If you wanna see the band's original video of the same song, check it out here on YouTube, where you can watch lots of videos of their songs.

I saw them perform America at the Stadium of Fire finalist competition last year.

This song, Round & Round, was actually featured in Gossip Girl Season 5 Episode 23.

Check out some of their other videos like Radioactive, On Top of the World, Curse or the whole set from the Provo Rooftop Concert Series, where I saw them last summer.

Provo is not just a little city in the middle of nowhere. It has quickly become a major music scene and it's pretty fun!
