ALLSTAR WEEKEND is Zach on Vocals, Nathan on Guitar & Vocals, Cameron on Bass and Michael on Drums. Beyond their exceptional musicianship and stage presence, these guys write great pop songs: melodic, smart and edgy. Moreover, they wield a mature craftsmanship beyond their years. It's unmistakable in songs like the synth-hook-laden "Dance Forever" and the introspective "Journey to the End of My Life," that are featured on this upcoming debut album!
The band's synth-based, dance-driven blend of pop rock and pop punk is nurtured on its debut by producers Howard Benson (The All-American Rejects), S*A*M & Sluggo (Katy Perry) and John Feldmann (Good Charlotte.) -- BillboardSee all Editorial Reviews

Four adorable teenagers, Zach, Cameron, Nathan and Michael - create this fun group of young heartthrobs and up and coming hit sensations.
My daughters and I have seen all the posts and plugs on television concerning All Star Weekend and while we were interested we weren't outright sold on their music until we had the chance to review this cd, Suddenly.
Again, we had the chance to listen to the album over and over again on our 6 hour drive to visit my sister. Hands down "Hey Princess" was our #1 favorite. I challenge you to know start dancing, hopping, clapping or bobbing your head while listen to this song....so cute! Definitely geared for the younger teen or tween but as a parent, I enjoyed it right along with the girls. In fact whenever they asked me which CD I wanted to listen to...this was my choice!
Dance Forever reminded me a bit of the retro 80's vibe which was great for me and had the twins jamming away in their car seats in back. A Different Side of Me....has great lyrics to sing along with. A lot of wisdom to appreciate who you are in the lyrics too. Kind of surprising but it was a great asset. My least favorite was Amy...not because it was a bad song, no it was very cute, but after the first three songs being rather fast and upbeat...well, it just kind of didn't belong (at that moment).
Make sure you pick up your copy of the CD...but remember the only way to listen to this is with the music cranked all the way...'cause you are going to want to sing along!
All Star Weekend completely reminds me of Blink 182 and Yellowcard who I also love. The CD also has an Internet feature when you put in into your computer which is cool since it takes you to their official site, facebook, twitter etc. It's an awesome CD with great features that I would definitely check out!
I recommend listening to "A Different Side of Me" even though all the songs are great!
