Kevin Simmott, 24, said he and Becca Keane have known each other since high school. On June 26, the two made the drive from Reading to Moosic for Fuzzfest at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain with one of their old favorites, Weezer. The band’s 15 song set list may have made it a memorable night for some concert goers, but Simmott and Keane made their own memory at the venue.

MOOSIC — For fans of Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, AWOLNATION, Panic! at the Disco and Weezer, June 26’s FuzzFest was an opportunity to enjoy a night of live music. For 24-year-old Kevin Simmott, the event also offered him a chance to take the next step in his life.

The United States Army serviceman, who’s stationed at Fort Campbell on the Kentucky-Tennessee boarder, returned to Pennsylvania to take his 23-year-old girlfriend Becca Keane to see one of their favorite bands — and to ask her a very important question.

“We went to high school together so we talked about marriage before but it was the perfect opportunity; what better place than at the Weezer concert? Me and my girlfriend love them, you know, we grew up in the time frame… it was just our generation of music,” said Simmott, a Philadelphia native who calls Reading home when he’s not on base.

Kevin and Becca will tie the knot July 1, 2016 at Paradise Stream, a couples resort in Mount Pocono. After that, the couple will began preparing for their next adventure — parenthood — with a baby girl scheduled to arrive this December.
