I knew I wanted to propose to my girlfriend Amanda with music somehow. It’s a major part of our relationship, and it gets us through everything. We discovered Walk The Moon a few years ago, and I was lucky to have the opportunity to do some design work for them. We became friends through the work, and have stayed in touch since.
When it came time to pop the question, I asked the guys if I could do it before “I Can Lift A Car” at their show on 9/28/13 at the Cat’s Cradle. It’s a special song for the two of us, and it’s all about that amazing feeling you get when you’re with someone and you feel like you can do anything. Not knowing what they’d say, I was super excited when they said “yes.” When the day came around, they gave me the setlist to know when the song would be played. They were amazing, and kept checking up on me to see how I was doing, haha!
We went up to the side of the stage before the big song, and Amanda had no clue what was happening. The guys brought me on stage by introducing me as the designer of their backdrop. From there, with the help of their tour manager, Blake, we convinced Amanda to come on stage with me, even though she didn’t understand why!
