A Word from Josh:
This was the second time in this new club for four of us. You may remember that our debut at Joe's a couple of months ago was notable due to the conspicuous absence of our notable drummer. So, this time we were glad that Rico could make it to Okauchee and carry his numerous drums down the flight of stairs. The show went pretty well and was a lot of fun. The place wasn't as crowded as last time but it still had that spunky personality that comes from a younger crowd spiced with a few oddballs. Speaking of oddballs, John did a great job on lead vocals as usual despite having to pace himself a bit. With Cherry Pie playing again early Saturday afternoon and ARRA performing Saturday night, John has to sing three full rock shows in a 30 hour period. I was able to help give him an extra rest by handling the lead vocals on our debut of "Goodbye" by Night Ranger. That was quite a different experience for me. Sure, I've sung some rockin' tunes accompanied by the full band and I've also done a lot of solo acoustic stuff away from the band. But this was the first time that I sang an acoustic ballad in the Cherry Pie atmosphere. I was somewhat relieved when it went over very well with the crowd including John who returned to the stage saying, "That was nice. I enjoyed that." At the end of the second set the club DJ was eager to pump the techno-dance music so we weren't allowed an encore. I guess that was OK, considering our next show was scheduled to start about 40 miles away in only 11 hours. 'Nite 'nite.     --Josh

Were you at this show?
Would you like to comment on it?

"Well I wasnt planning on attending the show, but since I was just down the road @ Olympia my car just sorta drove that way...which was kind of surprising since the week prior I was out at this same establishment and well ended up with 10 stiches in my head. They say us 80s rockers are wild and disorderly - well this time at least there were no flyin beer bottles or any trips to the emergency room! Great show guys, although even though it wasn't that packed it sure was hot in there! Next time bikini's are in order!"

"What can I say, this venue just isn't very popular for CherryPie. But that didn't stop them from giving us on hell of an ass-kickn' show. Their performance was impeccable and the song sets were great. The sets included a new song from the last show, Piece of Me, and another one, Goodbye, which was brand new at this show. John, who showed off his antics to the front row and also gave a great performance through the whole night, was able to keep the small group of fans entertained. These guys definitely proved that rock'n'roll ain't noise pollution and rock'n'roll ain't gonna die."
