A manager of a band has a variety of responsibilities. One of the responsibilities is to find a gig for the band, book a club or venue, produce music with a producer and so on. One of their responsibilities is to not find friends for the band or artists. When it came to Alex Pall, his manager knew that he would achieve great things but that it would be best done with someone else performing with him. That is when he was introduced to Andrew Taggart.
Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart had not been friends prior to their initial meet and greet. Andrew was making a name for himself in Maine and was attending school there. He had started out doing a few shows as a DJ but was nothing major unlike Alex Pall. Alex had spent much of his time living in NYC and because he was living there, he was able to make a name for himself. This name is what would help Andrew know who he was and what he was doing.
Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall setup a time and place to meet. When they met, it was like old friends coming together once again. There was nothing awkward about the meeting and they soon realized that their love of music is what would bond them to each other for years to come.

Soon after the pair had met, Andrew returned to Maine to quit his job and return back to the city to begin the life changing pace that took over once the pair started out releasing their own music. For artists or bands in the electronic mix genre, it can be difficult to enter into however at the time, the scene was hopping thanks to Avicii.
Before the Chainsmokers released music, they shared the same love for music. They knew that one day they would want to be on top of the world and since they shared this passion, it helped to bond the two together. Ever since that one weekend, the duo have been lucky enough to climb to the top and retain that position. Unlike most other artists, that have reached the number one spot only be knocked back down, they have been able to hold onto that spot for long periods of time.
