Romey Love Thread

    Romey Love Thread

    Since Jerome's birthday is coming up very soon, (4/25) I was anxiously awaiting someone to start a discussion thread to spread that wonderful Chaser love Jerome's way, but since none were started yet I thought I'd give it a try (This is my first thread and I hope I'm not stepping on any one's toes!)

    Where does one start when it comes to Jerome?!!!  He is so unique!  So, some Chasers, @DaisyKary's thread, described Jerome in one word:  Handful, Multifaceted, Incredible,World-class, Breath-takinglyamazingwonderfultalentedman, Confident, Sweet, Irresistible, 'Family' and Entertaining!

    Since I couldn't come up with one word I used two (their initials), and for Jerome I described him as "Just Crazy-good"!  He is so talented and uninhibited, and the man can MOVE!!!  He is a true performer, showman and entertainer in every sense of those words.   What I appreciate so much is that he is not afraid to look, or be, silly to get us laughing!  I also love when he shows that softer side of his vocal talents. 

    I think Jerome described himself the best when he said he is:"Passionate"!!  So true, and you can see it in every single note he sings!  I love his passion for what he does.  It is contagious and just makes us all the more passionate about SNC and him!

    As with each of the guys, SNC would not be the same without Jerome, so lets share some Chaser love with our one and only "ROME".  And might I suggest we hold nothing back (in the same spirit that he does on stage for all of us!)....

I love Rome's passion. You can see it and hear it when he sings. And you might be able to see it in pictures, if he'd hold still long enough to get a good one! ;)

No Rome love on here for waaaaay too long! C'mon Chasers!

Romey - Please know that we love you, your voice, your showmanship, your humor and shenanigans and all that you bring to the stage, and SNC...even if we don't "tell" you enough!!

Can't wait to hear this rich, wonderful voice in a couple of weeks. You rock Rome!!! :)

@mel2bell84 - Thank you for posting the link! (I had read it, myself, but I'm still working of learning how to locate, copy and paste!!!) I forget those not on FB or twitter don't always see these things!

@Fab4tune - LOL!.". ..will have some birthday disses coming his way..." (another Chaser instigator, I see!!

I saw a few videos on YouTube today, and must say Rome is lookin' better than ever! I just love his voice!! (He did Up On The Roof, and sounded perfect, as usual! I love when he instigates, and gets Mide laughing, too!!! Miss you, Rome!!

How could anyone not love Rome? Happy to keep this thread going & thank you @GML for starting it. P.S. Anyone going to the end of April shows not only can *cash in* on KISS A BROTHER DAY but I believe a certain Jerome Collins will have some birthday kisses coming his way...

@Fab4tune is accurate about "if you didn't use it.." (re: Rome's tweet about the unofficial Kiss a Brother Holiday"! (I just assumed if onee was asking, then they didn't use it!). I, too, would have loved to see him perform in the Lion King! (I wonder if there are any tapes "out there" of his performance??) I also love how he was described as a showman in the recent SNC review from the UK! If anyone has the link (I'm still learning that computer skill), for the review, please feel free to post it here!

I'm glad to see @Fab4tune and everyone else has kept this thread going in my absence (My computer was misbehaving!) because Rome sure does deserve our love, with all that he gives to us! and Passion is the word that Rome used to describe himself. He is also a man who knows himself!!

Fab4tune's picture

Yes @GML is correct! As long as you didn't use it 1/27/12 on someone else you can *float* the holiday to ANY day this year depending on when you see Rome next. So @Jeanette P., if the cruise is your next SNC show of 2012 then make sure you pack your *raincheck* & chapstick. ;-)

GML's picture

We love and miss you, Rome!!

GML's picture

@Jeanette P.... Since Rome announced that it was a "floating holiday" I am certain the "Cruise" would qualify...maybe even double!! I'd go for the double, myself!! lol

I am very impressed with Jerome's energy on stage. He is wonderful at what he does best witch is to entertain people.

Jeanette P.'s picture

Yes, Fab4tune...let us Chasers know if that invitation is still valid for the cruise in October. Thanks.

Fab4tune's picture

See Rome's tweets from JANUARY 27th, which accoding to the cutie-pie himself was "Kiss A Brother Day"! So any of you ladies who didn't take advantage of that day by kissing someone else on 1/27/12 can cash in a *raincheck* next time you see Jerome (and remind him that's what you're doing).

Fab4tune's picture

Come on ladies, WAY too many weeks have passed since we've shown Rome some love in this thread. I know for a fact that some Chasers (me included) are counting down the days to our next show not only to see our guys perform live again but also to *cash in* our rainchecks for "Kiss A Brother Day"...see Romey's tweets from last month! Don't know if it's an unofficial holiday that Rome created or not but we don't care because we're holding out until we see HIM next. ;-)

I just have to say Jerome is one of the nicest guys I've ever met in my life. His kindness and genuineness is unmatched! Goes out of his way to make his fans feel appreciated. He's simply fantastic.

And that wonderful voice of his...so organic and rich! Thank you for being so wonderful Jerome. You're fantastic.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Collins!

Just saw a video on facebook of the guys singing Poison/Billie Jean... Rome is brilliant in it! So swift with his words... it's just hysterical! Love this guy!

Fab4tune's picture

Yes Traci - PASSION is the perfect word for Rome - he puts his heart mind & soul into every peformance

TraciP's picture

I agree completely, Fab4tune! If I had to describe Rome in one word, it would be passion. You can see his passion for music in every video the fans post of him! =]

Fab4tune's picture

WAY too long since someone posted on this thread - Gotta show Rome some love

Romey oozes talent from every pore of his being - the voice is mind-blowing - not just his amazing vocal quality and musicality but the feeling & soul he delivers each song with - Each note he sings comes from deep within - Something overtakes him when he's performing and he makes it seem easy

If he just had that voice it would be enough but he is your "song and dance" man to the max - Never want him to leave SNC but would love to see him in a Broadway musical or any professional musical theatre production that would fit inbetween his SNC touring schedule - He must have been incredible in "The Lion King" - wish I could have seen him in it

Showing Romey love & appreciation for all the hard work & pure talent he delivers night after night to audiences everywhere on tour - This original Straight No Chaser is truly irreplaceable

Oh did I forget to mention what a cutie-pie he is and nice guy (you can tell his mom raised him well) - Happy Holidays to you and your family Rome and enjoy your new abode (finally) during your whole month off

I don't know if Rome reads his threads, or not, but I'd just like to say: I think you did an absolutely awesome job in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Rome! That really IS how you do it!

We love you, Rome!

@Vixter - I bet Rome still gets in all kinds of trouble now! ;)

I loved seeing Jerome THREE TIMES last week! He is so sweet. He always has the biggest smile and the friendliest hugs. He has a way of making a person feel so special. ??

Congrats on the new abode, Rome! So exciting for you. I hope you get some time to enjoy it in a few weeks!

Vixter's picture

I bet Rome got in all KINDS of trouble as a kid! Question is, how often did he get caught? (;

Lisa N.'s picture

I love the facial expressions Rome has when he dances. I bet he was a little mischievous when he was a kid. I bet his Mom has a bunch of great stories to tell!

Thanks Dottie for posting Rome's interview - it was great!!

GML's picture

@Dottie thanks for posting that. I really enjoyed hearing Jerome's smooth interview. Also, the host really picked great songs to highlight!

Rome, you rock!

Rome is so awesome!!! When I first met the group last week, he was the one who was really outgoing and personable for me getting me out of my shell to say a little more. His presence is so friendly and approachable and yes, passionate!!!! And I love how he always has the biggest smile on his face!!!

Love ya Jerome!!!!

Extra love today for my favorite tenor two. :)

I love the way Rome pours himself into every performance. So smooth. So outstanding. *sigh*
