The Band Perry Rocks Brookings

February 7, 2014, 9:55 PM by Jared Ransom

The Band Perry Rocks Brookings

The Swiftel Center in Brookings rocked all night Friday when The Band Perry took the stage. They are three siblings who really have known they wanted to get into music their entire lives.

Whether it is a stage in Australia, the crowd at the Super Bowl or the die-hard fans at the Swiftel Center, Reid, Kimberly and Neal Perry soak in every minute of it. They have a passion to perform, and it started at a young age.

"Our parents were like our first radio. Dad would rock us to sleep singing Rolling Stone songs and Queen songs, and Mom was a country music fan, so as long as we can remember, our family and music were always intertwined," Kimberly Perry said.

Their music has inspired thousands of fans all over the world, and the fans have returned that inspiration. They love performing in any venue, but they have a special appreciation for the Midwest.

"You'll come across some states or regions where they'll sit back and they'll listen and clap at the end, but the Midwest seems to enjoy the entire song. They've got their fists in the air, they're singing along and they yell real loud," Reid Perry said.

It's been a non-stop journey for the band since becoming a household name, and in between battles of Catch Phrase, they're ready to give their fans even more to get excited about with a new album.

"It's really exciting. It's kind of a never-ending circular pattern for The Band Perry, as soon as we finish the album, we wait a few months and start getting ready for the next one," Neal Perry said.

And this family would not have it any other way.

It certainly isn't the first time they've been to South Dakota, and it definitely will not be their last. They love the Midwest and the fan base that it provides.
