Gloriana Will Go ‘Wild’ During Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Gloriana will be among the performers floating by during the 84th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. The star-studded event, which helps usher in the holiday season, will air Thanksgiving morning (November 25) beginning at 9:00 AM ET on NBC.
The four members of the band will ride a float in the parade as they perform their breakout hit, 'Wild at Heart.'
"The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is such an iconic holiday event and we are so honored and excited to be a part of it this year," says the quartet's Rachel Reinert. "This is definitely going down as one of the coolest performance opportunities we have had!"
It was just a few months ago Gloriana received word that 'Wild at Heart,' their 2009 debut single, had been certified gold.
"It means the world to us," Mike Gossin tells The Boot. "We set out with a dream three years ago and made some songs and toured as much as we possibly could. And people supported us and believed in us, and that really is the greatest feeling in the world. I've got to say it feels pretty freaking good! But we've got to thank them, because it wouldn't have happened without people supporting us and going out and spending their hard earned money. It all paid off."
Mike's brother, Tom Gossin, brought a little humor to the moment, reflecting back on their musical experiences before forming the current group. "I think, up until now, any record that any of us have been on prior to Gloriana had only gone aluminum foil. That's as far as it went, which is that you sell 10 copies to your friends. So, we are really excited."
Gloriana will go on tour next month. The band's next scheduled concert is December 3 in Queen Creek, Ariz. For a complete list of concert dates and cities, check here.
