The boys of Midnight Red stopped by Seacrest Studios at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas while wrapping up the POP Explosion Tour. The All-American boy band is made up of five talented guys – Anthony Ladao, Thomas Augusto, Eric Secharia, Colton Rudloff, & Joey Diggs Jr. The band opened up about life in the spotlight and performed several songs, including their new single “Take Me Home”.
In the midst of a boy band resurgence, Midnight Red has captured hearts across the nation. Some consider them “America’s answer to One Direction” – a compliment they are happy to accept. “To be spoken in the same breath as them is an honor, because they are very very successful and we look up to that success,” Rudloff said. The group said they use their dance moves to set themselves apart from other boy bands.
Midnight Red formed after Ladao and Secharia met through their voice coach. They reached out to the other members and quickly earned a spot opening for the New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys tour in 2011. Since then, they have attracted tons of fans who call themselves the “Red Heads”. “We have lots of love for them,” Rudloff said.
The charming quintet finished their visit with a few acoustic songs and wished one of their own a Happy Birthday. Thank you Midnight Red for stopping by the studio – and thank you Joey for spending your birthday with us!
