Building a band is not something that is easy. Finding the right people to be in the band isn’t either. For Andrew Taggart however, when the first member of the Chainsmokers left, he wanted to move forward by bringing someone else in. This was the best thing that he could have ever done. It opened up for a whole new friendship to occur between him and Alex Pall.
Using social media has allowed for bands and fans to be able to communicate with one another. Bands are able to see what their fans are really up to and what age bracket that they see those fans in. The Chainsmokers have been able to see what ages their fans are and to see messages from fans that allow them to peek inside of their fans lives. One woman wrote to them to tell them about her mother singing along and humming to one of their songs. This was something that had social media never happened, they would not have known about. Even the small things matter to the band.
The Chainsmokers have started to see a difference in the people attending their shows. The audience members were once a set age bracket and since they have started to release new music unlike anything that they had ever released, there are now even more people attending their shows of all age brackets. The original followers are still present and accounted for however the number of new fans is always growing which is making their shows even more packed than ever before.
Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall know how to put on a show and have been able to do things for their fans that they never thought they would have. One thing that they have begun doing is singing for their fans. Andrew took to his vocals to sing lead on the song “Closer” which was something that created a new level of playing for bands that they never thought they could have competed against. With each new change, the band has been able to reach the top of the charts and have been able to hold onto their spot because of the music they keep releasing.
Andrew Taggart is an original member of the band The Chainsmokers and when his counterpart opted to leave, there left an opening. That is when Alex Pall and him met. In that moment, the two spent some time learning about each other and found that they would be perfect to continue the band on. That simple thought has led them to becoming a top chart selling performer of all time. They have been lucky enough to climb the charts and to stay there.
