Young Guns Rocked Grand Rapids with WGRD on Friday Night at The Stache

The guys in Young Guns are no strangers to the United States, having toured here a few times, and played a lot of great shows with bands like Halestorm!  Right now, they're on tour with You Me at Six and Stars in Stereo, and they hit Grand Rapids Friday night!

The band came by the WGRD studios before the show to talk about music, soccer...sorry, football, and the show, with Janna.  They also played some songs acoustically, that you can check out here at WGRD.com.

Before their show at the Stache Friday night, British rockers, Young Guns visited WGRD to play some songs and talk music, touring, and what's next for the band!

After lots of success in their native UK, their song "Bones" helped push them to the top of the charts here in the US. And they even promised me they'd play it tonight just for me! (And you know, everyone else at the show... but it still made me feel special!)
