What a night. This show marked a major debut for us. This was our first show under the name Cherry Pie and it was also our first show in the city of Milwaukee. It went great as we were able to showcase our act in front of a huge crowd. Don't get me wrong - We are under no illusions here. We know that most of the crowd was there to see the "in"famous Mancow, who took the stage for 45 minutes between our sets - But that was the beauty of it all... We were able to impress a whole lot of people who would otherwise have not seen us. In fact, all indications are that we did so with great success. Of course, we had some of our usual crowd there including Don & Heather Peaslee, Dawn Busalacchi, Andi Brodsky, Mark Barolotta, Heather Bucket, Jeff & Kelly Rux, Eddie & Rhonda de Bie & Eddie's Hyde Park bandmates Randy & Greg, Christine Tate, John Hauser of The Love Monkeys and a strong contingent of folks from Oconomowoc including Natalie Loppnow, Tim & Coreen Gartzke, Karen McNitt (manager of the Main Attraction where we've played many times) and many of their friends. However, new faces greatly outnumbered familiar ones leading us to feel that we did a lot to develop a new Milwaukee following on this night. Throughout the evening we were each besieged by dozens of folks complimenting the band and offering their enthusiastic support. It felt great. As for the show itself, we played many songs that were new to us and introduced other additions to the show including a new drum riser and a significant use of acoustic guitar. These factors, along with the super crowd and excellent sound & light production contributed to a great vibe on stage. As for Mancow's act, he and his buddy Turd whipped the crowd into a frenzy by inviting women onto the stage and insulting them relentlessly. I'm sure most of them knew exactly what they were in for as they seemed to enjoy it for the most part. Then Mancow and Turd decided to sing. They invited the band back onto the stage where we played three songs (two of which we've never played before) with Turd covering most of the lead vocals (if you can call them vocals). Anyway, it was a lot of fun. -Josh
