Michigan Couple Recreates Albany Local Band State Champs Album Cover for Proposal Ahead of Hometown Show This Weekend
When your love of music meets the love of your life right here in the Capital Region!
I love that we are closing out 2018 with a feel good story chalked full of love and music! This weekend Albany locals State Champs played a SOLD OUT show back in their hometown at the Upstate Concert Hall. Although the band put on a killer set to a packed house it is a couple of their fans, their love for each other, and their music making headlines this week!
Local boys State Champs made their return to the Capital Region this weekend. With them came fans from near and far. One couple traveled all the way from Michigan for the show and before they got to see State Champs play their album 'The Finer Things' in it's entirety they made a stop in Albany to see where the picture for the cover art of the album was taken. It was there, on the corner of Lark St. and Hudson, where East Lansing's Andrea LaPonsie's (now fiance) Damon Plasencia got down on one knee and asked her to be his forever!
The band got wind of the proposal and were pretty much just excited as Andrea!
