There aren't too many bands who can say they've performed at their hometown Major League Baseball stadium in front of a crowd full of fans. Well tonight, at the Home Run Derby, WALK THE MOON can say they have. The Cincinnati natives will kick off the night with a live performance of their hit song "Shut Up and Dance".
Their infectious song "Shut Up and Dance" has stuck with fans since its debut in September and has continued on to become one of the Summer's hottest hits. With over 3+ million singles sold and 42+ million Vevo views, the song has helped the bands latest release, TALKING IS HARD, gain notoriety.
Understandably so, WALK THE MOON has quickly become one of Cincinnati's most beloved hometown bands, joining the ranks of musical talent to come from Cincinnati like The Isley Brothers. Which is why it came as no surprise, when the opportunity presented itself for WALK THE MOON to record a cover of The Isley Brothers "It's Your Thing" to be used for coverage of the Home Run Derby, the band jumped at the opportunity!
ESPN Music got a behind the scenes look at their recording session!
Coverage of the Home Run Derby begins tonight at 7:00pm ET on ESPN.
