Emblem3 at The Mercury Ballroom
Emblem3 has taken off as a YouTube Sensation doing covers of favorite hits like Megan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” and “SunsetBlvd” which wowed Simon Cowell on X Factor. Winners of the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, “Breakout Group” alongside a Top 20 single and over 400,000 concert tickets sold worldwide, Wesley and Keaton are just getting started. See this incredible new band takeoff at Mercury Ballroom on Saturday, May 14!
Barely into their teens music took precedent over everything else and the brothers, Wesley and Keaton, left home for California in pursuit of their dreams.
They were playing to intense and adoring crowds all over the Sunset Strip, and had won the top prize in Rock N' Road's Orange County Battle of the Bands. But the ambitious group, looked at a blank white board and their dwindling bank accounts, knowing they needed a bigger break. They were given one with an audition for "X Factor," where they wowed Simon Cowell with their original performance of "Sunset Blvd." -- no easy feat.
But as Emblem3 progressed through the show's process, they once again sensed that they were being misunderstood and molded -- as young men who could easily be seen in teen magazines, Emblem3 could easily feel the push for them to be seen as a "boy band." Their unwillingness to compromise may have cost them in the short term; they failed to make the finals of "X Factor." But having amassed 20 million YouTube views and an international fanbase, they were clearly the show's breakout band.
It's fitting: nothing's ever been planned for Emblem3, and things always seem to take an unusual curve. But it always ends up in the right place.
