Artist's Description

Featured in the FAN FRENZY group on November 7, 2008

Location: Aaron Carter Concert; Riverside Theater, Milwaukee WI

This shot was taken in the lobby during the Meet and Greet, so we were mobbed by fans.

Any Finns out there to tell me what has happened to these girls?

For a while I was a “volunteer” reporter for a Finnish American newspaper. The editor sent me to Milwaukee to interview a Finnish band that was opening for Aaron Carter (see my journal entry “Brushes with Fame”), an all girl band called Tik ‘n Tak (in Finland TikTak, sounding like tick tock, as in a clock). They were very good for their type of music, kiddie pop; certainly better than Aaron Carter. Not only were they good musicians, but they were very nice, polite Finnish kids too. I was especially amazed with Emilia who had such a marvelous speaking voice and riveting eye contact; she would make an excellent politician! Unfortunately, Tik Tak had limited success in the U.S.; they had stiff competition from another rising girl band… Destiny’s Child.
