My ultimate Avett moment was the first time I saw them play at a friend's wedding in Manteo, NC. It was a small wedding and they just showed up and played. I was amazed by them and have been a fan ever since. It was just Scott, Seth and Bob. I don't even know what songs they played, but it was an awesome night.
The second was just this weekend in South Bend. I finally got to meet everyone in the band. They signed my poster and were all so very nice. They all independently remembered playing the wedding, because Seth bumped his head right before and they thought he had a concussion. Bob mentioned it first, then Scott mentioned it and Seth also remember it too. It was really neat. I really loved meeting them and how nice and encouraging they were. I mentioned that if they come to Indy and play at an outdoor venue, that I hope they play Swept Away, because my 3 year old daughter loves it with Bonnie. It was like talking to a friend.
Those are a couple of moments for me! I would love to hear yours.
