Do They Know Who Is Connecting With Their Music?
Alex Pall says thanks to Instagram he can tell you exactly who is connecting with their music. From looking online he can see that their music is gaining more of an international audience. They find that exciting. They are reaching places like the Philippines and South Africa. The age groups that seem interested are from 16 to 25 mainly. Pretty equal shares of boys and girls are listening is his best guess. They’ve enjoyed getting messages from people saying their six year old is singing the songs or that their parent came in humming the tune. This shows that their age barriers are expanding. The group makes music that they personally enjoy and it’s awesome that others are enjoying it to the point that they can relate. They don’t really care about the demographics, they just want the music to touch their listeners emotionally.

How Did The Audience Change The Show?
Andrew Taggart says they had to consider their audience. As the group has gained popularity they’ve grown from college age listeners to over 30 listeners as well as an under 15 group. Now they have to think about that when they tour. They must put on a show for that large range of people. When they first started out, a college raver just needed a simple DJ set. Now they have to perform the songs. They can’t just go out and play to an arena, they have to push themselves to entertain the crowd with their music.
What Is The Quick Fix For The Growing Audience?
Alex Pall says to adapt the live show and visuals to the expanding audience is not a one time fix. Their show will be always changing. They will continue to push themselves to create a new and exciting show. They have their own standard that they will not keep presenting the same ideas. The song Closer actually creates an opportunity for them to make a huge change in the way they perform. There has always been a performance part to it, but that part is growing more and more.
