A Word from Josh:
This was a show where we didn't really have to worry much about drawing a good crowd because a good crowd was provided for us by club-owner Kelly and his birthday party. Hundreds of invited guests started filing in at 7:00 for the festivities. At one point Kelly brought the entire bar staff on the stage and exchanged toasts with old friends. It was actually kind of touching at times (sniff, sniff). We were able to join in and enjoy some great food and drink. Later on we took the stage feeling pretty good as we launched into some hard-hitting songs right off the bat. The crowd was appreciative, but not quite ready to dance yet (I think they were still digesting the pizza). The cowbell at the beginning of "Working for the Weekend" signaled a dancing frenzy that didn't let up all night. We managed to break a long drought of fresh material when we debuted "Black Cat" early in the second set. Hey, it's a 80s big hair rock song and John sings it really well (maybe a little too well). But, that wasn't the only new song we unveiled during that set. When it came time to play a piano ballad John and I played a very pretty, but also very unknown song called "The Meeting" which took a lot of people by surprise. "What the Hell was that!?" asked Shane as he returned to the stage after the song. I hope that people can forgive our indulgence with what is probably the most obscure song we've ever played, because I really think that it's an excellent tune for slow dancing (it's all about the love, folks). We continued to enjoy the bar's hospitality after the show when the lovely Dawn Farris rekindled the pizza oven and provided us with a late-night snack. We hope that all of you who attended had as much fun as we did. We really appreciate Kelly having us play at his place on such special night.     - Josh
