We go through great lengths to secure the lineup for MixFest each year. As New England’s premiere free music event, we know that we have a lot of pressure to bring some of the best acts to the Charles River Esplanade each year.
Sometimes, we even send the big guns to convince artists to join us for our annual party.
We really wanted Third Eye Blind to take the stage this year at the DCR Hatch Memorial Shell, so back when they were in town a few months ago, we sent Salt from Karson & Kennedy to try and convince Stephan Jenkins to bring his band back to Boston in September.
“I have this very big event that’s coming up, it’s in September at the DCR Hatch Meorial Shell,” Salt said to Stephan. “It is MixFest, and if I brought you and your band, I would be awesome.”
“Salt, you’re awesome already, so I want you to own that,” Stephan replied. “Thank you for inviting me. It’s a big invitation.”
You can watch the whole, umm.. awkward… proposal in the video player above.
