When The Lights Go Down: Chad Brownlee & the Toronto Blue Jays

Chad Brownlee Blue Jays Game-0495Before an awesome and entertaining 7-6 extra innings Blue Jays walk-off win, Chad Brownlee took over the TD Music Stage outside gates 10 and 11 and put on a country music showcase for Toronto baseball fans.

Brownlee and the band came on stage in brand new Blue Jays jerseys and looked good doing it. And while the common thought would be that the Canadian country star would give a short set at the pre-game party, he didn’t. With 12 songs, including 2 great covers, Chad Brownlee put on a full show that got people clapping, singing, and chanting along.

For real, Brownlee did a great job of getting fans ready for the game, starting his own “Go Jays Go” chant from the stage between songs. Well done.

He also showed off his good guy side when he pulled a sign out of the crowd and signed it, telling the crowd about the good work of the Tim Horton’s Foundation and their now 7 camps across Canada. We saw firsthand the love Brownlee has for the charity when he auctioned off a custom hockey stick guitar during his When The Lights Go Down tour this spring.

Mid-set we got a little visit from Danny Valencia who told the fans that the team is very excited about the trades made this week, giving us a “I really feel like we’re all in. It’s playoffs or bust” quote. Then Danny, Chad, the band, and some Jays crew girls threw t-shirts into the crowd.

And how about some love for Blue Jays President, Paul Beeston who hung out with the fans for the entire pre-game fun. You know it’s been a good week when that happens.

Shout out to superfan Amber who we spotted in the front row. This girl loves live music and has had some awesome experiences over the last year at least. Check her out on Instagram to see some of her cool moments.

All said and done, this was a cool pre-game treat – and a nice little preview of what we hope to see from Chad next weekend at Boots & Hearts 2015. We can’t wait for Saturday and Chad’s turn on the main stage!
