It's not every day we're given the opportunity to spend a few hours with one of the most beloved bands on the planet. So when our friends in The Fray granted us exclusive access to what would truly be a day unlike any other in New York City...well, let's just say we're glad we remembered to bring a camera crew in tow. The result is a captivating three part documentary series of the group traveling around the city, chatting about their personal lives, and showing us some of the unique activities a band of The Fray's stature find themselves doing when they hit the greatest city on Earth.
Today we're excited to premier part one of this series, and trust us...you're going to need some Kleenex...'cause it's a weeper. Here the band pop in on The Marymount School of Manhattan's "School of Rock" class, surprising a classroom of wannabe rockers with a performance and bit of Q and A. That the students at the all-girls school were completely crazed by the band's visit is no surprise. However, their musical prowess might be a little unexpected. The band has no shame letting the students know it either, mentioning that they weren't nearly as talented as the girls are when they were their age. The Fray also play an awesome acoustic set, complete with mandatory sing-alongs of all the songs you know. Lead Singer Isaac Slade then gets cozy with the crowd, persuading one shy girl (with the help of her peers) to sing for everyone. It's nice to see big bands in unexpected, small environments.
Check out The Fray's humbling experience with The School of Rock in part one of our Day in the Life series, presented by The Sony S Tablet.
