Chester French played two SOLD OUT shows in a row last Tuesday night while opening for Lady GaGa on The Fame Ball tour. I was lucky enough to get into both the early and late show, so I saw the Chester French guys twice in one night, having never seen them before.

I first took notice of the band while reading up on Mark Hoppus’s blog. Mark had posted their music video on his site after hearing about the band from Travis Barker. The video is for Chester French’s first single “She Loves Everybody” and basically consists of having the two dudes in the band get beat up buy some chick while they’re playing their song. Pretty simple, yet so classic, Black and white. I love it. The song is catchy as hell. Trust me, you’ll love it. If not after the first listen, then you’ll definitely be hooked after the second or third time.

I honestly didn’t like “She Loves Everybody” the first time around, but it grew on me! For those of you unfamiliar with Chester French, it’s a band made up of two dudes: Maxwell Drummey (Max) and David-Andrew Wallach (D.A.). Max plays the majority of the instruments during their live show, as well as writes most of the music. D.A. is the lead singer and writes the majority of the lyrics. He’s also quite talented at playing the triangle and the shaker by the way, which is clearly evident when performing “She Loves Everybody.” Max and D.A. only had less than half an hour to warm up the crowds at each show, but both sets including an AWESOME cover of No Doubt’s “Hella Good.” Any band that covers No Doubt is good enough for me. They have a fan for life in yours truly.

Make sure you check out Chester French when they hit up a city near you. These guys are going to be huge! Their fans already include big names like Kanye West, Jimmy Iovine, Pharrell Williams, Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, Pete Wentz, Clinton Sparks, N.E.R.D., Common, and much more! You don’t wanna be the last one to hear about Chester French. More photos after the jump!

    I’m diggin’ the wig he is wearing in the pictures! They are really good. I’ll have to look them up as I have never heard of them…I don’t want to be behind the times! Good stuff though!

    These guys had me laughing the entire time we were with them. I wanna listen to our interview again– too funny.

    And honestly. I just have to say… that I never thought that I would have a crush on a guy with red hair– and curly hair at that. DA is hot. I think its his personality that has changed my mind about those orange heads.

    When Max said that his style was Marie Antoinette mixed with Kurt Cobain… I understood from what he was wearing at that time– but then when he came out on stage later that night with the wig– I died! So funny.

    I love them. and their single has been one of my recently played songs for a few weeks now- gotta get more on my ipod.

    Cant wait to see them again– and hopefully have a chance to interview them again to catch up– I know much more will happen with these guys in the mean time.
