Taryn Balwinski -

The founder of She lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee and loves it. When she isn’t concert hopping, street teaming, or blogging, Taryn works full-time in Administrative Support for the non-profit mentioned in that Macklemore song. She also finds time to eat spicy food and sleep. You can find her up against the rail or on the ADA platform during the show. Yoko Ono’s “Bad Dancer” is her theme song. She started the site as a music themed personal blog, but soon decided the project would be more fun with friends.

Micheal Miller -

My earliest concert memory was hearing Paul Simon as a young child on the Graceland tour. My love of music has only flourished since that time, as I've gone from being your average concert attendee, to becoming a concert reviewer, a writer who interviews various bands and musical artists, and my primary passion, a photographer with a love for - unsurprisingly - concert photography!
