Heffron Drive

By Hailey Sager  ,  December 12, 2013

If my memory serves me correctly, it was early 2009 and I was enjoying a live chat with Kevin Schmidt of “Cheaper by the Dozen” fame, when he had his younger brother Kendall singing for the audience of the chat. They said he was preparing for an important audition the following day. I don’t know for sure if that important audition was for Big Time Rush, but I like to think that it was.

Fast forward four years later, and I was standing in a small room of about 80 girls watching Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt perform as Heffron Drive. Many fans don’t know that Heffron Drive has been a band since before Kendall Schmidt joined the pop boy band, Big Time Rush. Heffron Drive is using the Heffron Drive Winter Tour 2013 as an intimate way to perform all of their original songs as well as some of their new songs. It was great to witness the entire audience singing along to all of Heffron Drive’s new and old songs.

The show was on Thanksgiving and Kendall was cooking a turkey on his tour bus between interviews, meet and greets, and performances. Tour support came from Ariana and The Rose and Eric Dash. Ariana and The Rose is everything you love about female pop artists today combined into one group. Ariana and The Rose performed a melody of current pop songs which was better than all of the originals combined.

I was fortunate enough to interview both Kendall from Heffron Drive as well as Ariana from Ariana and The Rose. Sitting down with Ariana was like sitting down with a long-time friend. She was so sweet. Ariana and I discussed what it was like to be on set for Sir Paul McCartney’s latest music video. While interviewing Kendall, we talked about what it was like to have fans all over the world who might not know your language, but they know all of the words to your songs. The show was definitely one of my favorite concerts of the year.
