"As people, our hearts go out and we hope that everyone's hearts go out," Nathan tells E! News. "Being in the business it's kind of tough because you know that things have to move on, it's just a matter of what pace."

Morris continues, "So we didn't really know how to really look at it. We didn't want it to feel like the city didn't really care and jumped into business right away or kind of didn't show the sympathy that they should."

The group then explains that with their performances they hope to help people "take their mind" off of the tragic events for a period of time and offer them a place to enjoy themselves for a couple of hours.
