A few minutes later she left to go get a piece of paper for us to write our names and address down, she said Phil and Anthony didn't live far from Haystacks and that she would let us know the next time they came there to play. When she returned to our table she was holding out a phone and told me to take it. I didn't know what was going on, but I took it from her and said hello. It was Phil, he said he was very sorry that we had missed them and that they would be having more dates soon. After I talked to Phil for a while Heather and I were getting ready to leave.
As soon as we got in the car, the lady came out and told us that School Boy Humor just called, they were on their way back to play for us. We were pretty shocked that they were willing to come back and play for just the two of us. It was almost time for Haystacks to close, so we were the only ones there besides the people that worked there. Heather and I thought it would be really awkward for us to be their only audience, so we were happy to see that when School Boy Humor arrived they had brought some friends and a few other members of the band with them. Phil arrived about 15 or 20 minutes before Anthony, so we all just sat and talked while we waited for him.
Before they started playing a few more people came in to eat, now we felt a little better since the audience had grown a little more.
Phil and Anthony performed songs off of their album, as well as a few new unreleased songs. I think School Boy Humor sounds even better live then they do on their record. They told us about their song "Don't Look Back" being on Radio Disney's countdown and then sang a song they wrote with Mitchel Musso called "Just Want More"
I have video of them performing a new song called "Show Me" I thought we had recorded the whole song, but realized half way through that we apparently didn't hold down the record button down long enough for the camera to start recording...but at least I have the chorus.
After they were done playing a girl that was related to the people that were there eating just happened to walk in with a guitar and told all of us she was a country singer. I thought it was a little weird that she showed up like that. (Coincidence...I think not.) She asked School Boy Humor if she could hear a song of theirs, so they played "Show Me" again. When they were done she sang a song she wrote.
Yesterday they performed on a local news station during Good Morning Arkansas and they will be starting a new tour soon.
I'm gonna go ahead and say that this show was the best I have ever been to, because not only are they extremely talented...but they are also really sweet. I mean they came back to play for my sister and I because we missed the show, no one else has ever done that for me and I think that is pretty amazing.
