We LOVE Jason Mraz!!!!

One of the upcoming events we are most excited about this year happens December 1st - we are so excited to say that we are going to see Jason Mraz in concert in London!!

Have you heard of him? If not, then prepare yourself - we're about to change your life. Jason is such a talented singer and songwriter, with an acoustic feel and very clever lyrics, his music is amazing and as if that wasn't enough, he is an incredible person.

Mraz lyrics are all over our house!
Jason and I go way back. Coincidentally, my brother's name is also Jason, and I go way back with him too (from birth). I first saw Mr. Mraz in concert in 2005 in Boise, and completely fell in love. I own every album and know all the words to all of his songs. It's one of her bigger obsessions.

The second time I got to see Jason in concert, I waited at the stage door, and had one of my dreams realised, when I got to meet him! I have a signed ticket stub and photo with him. He was lovely in person, though a little short (but nobody's perfect, right?). It still goes down as one of the best nights I've ever had!

Oh yeah, that's me at 16!
When I got together with Sarah, I knew a big test of how compatible we were was if she could appreciate Jason Mraz. His music also helped me get through a really dark time in my life, so it was really important. At first, it looked like Sarah would fail the test - fast forwarding to the quick, 'pop-y' songs and not loving the slow and meaningful ones, but I would come to accept Sarah's adoration for anything cheesy (Britney Spears!). Once Sarah really listened to the album Mr. A-Z, she got it... and I was relieved that I could in fact marry her someday.

And what's even more awesome than his music? When he got engaged a few years ago, he pledged not to get married until everyone can. I have so much respect for celebrities who value marriage equality.

I made this for Sarah when she went away to Bali for a week when we were in Oz! I missed her so much
You probably didn't need all this backstory, but I just wanted to make sure you understood just how much Jason Mraz means to me.

So this Saturday, we get to see him live!! My third time, Sarah’s first. We are SO excited to see him in such a big venue – I've just seen him in Boise, Idaho.

We’ll update you after the concert on how (inevitably) amazing he was, but we thought we’d leave you with a few of our favourite Mraz songs!

'I'm Yours' - A Mraz classic!

'Lucky' - this is 'our song'!! In fact, the lyrics to this are all over our house!

'I Won't Give Up' - Jason's latest hit - touching, emotional and beautiful

'Geek in the Pink' - one of the original songs that made me fall in love with Jason Mraz!


  1. How awesome!! That is going to be an amazing performance in an amazing city. I've been a long time fan of Mraz. He is a truly awesome person to make such a statement for his LGBT friends. Very cool, and fantastic music, too!

  2. I will have to listen to these songs later, I am sure they are beautiful. I'm just not in the right frame of mind to listen to them now, I would probably just sob... I don't need any help with that at the moment:(

    Hopefully when you post about your night of seeing him, I will be able to listen to them :)

  3. We love Jason Mraz too! Saw him in concert... he was so much fun!! I'm Yours is our favorite song!
