A Word from Josh:
It's not every day that you can say that a gig is an adventure. But, there I was, feeling like I was in an Astro Van commercial as I packed all of my stage gear in my vehicle along with three family members, a 110-pound dog and equipment and supplies for us all to go on a 300-mile round-trip camping odyssey. But hey, we were hired to play at a campground and... when in Rome, eh? The adventure turned out to be every bit as fun as we had hoped and I'm not just talking about sleeping in a tent on the hard ground on a cold night. Other stuff was fun too like the pool, mini golf, Kinney Lake and cooking meals over the campfire. And, oh yeah, we played a gig. This show was set up by our good friend Paul Adamec and he worked his ass off to make it a success. The stage was set up in a big tent on the edge of the campground where a bunch of campers came to help us keep everybody else at the campground awake into the night. We had a lot of fun sharing our brand of 80s rock with the crowd in this natural setting, keeping things hot even as temperatures fell all around us. Yeah, we had a great time with this unique opportunity. Maybe we can do it again next year.     --Josh

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

Glenn (Eliminator Audio):
"As always its great to work with you gents. We also had a great time Thanks again to Paul and the staff at kastle Kampground looking forward to next year?"

"A majority of the time these guys play for a huge crowd, but once in a while it's nice to be secluded from everything and just have a small amount of people. It makes it more personal. As the sun went down, there was a chill in the air that you could actually see your breath, but the incandescence that the band gave off, was enough to keep you warm. They performed with the high-spiritness that they all possess. Then there's John, wearing a sleek red shirt and form-fitting black pants, used his alluring charisma and debonair ways to bring the fans in from the outside elements for a rockn' partying time. I was so impressed by so many things that night, that I was highly disappointed when it was over and had to face that long drive home."

J. Penmore Worthington (Poor Rich Kids):
"Guys: Thanks a million for having us come along for the wild ride! Everyone had a blast keeping it hot even after the sun went down - especially our Ms. Paige Prescott!! Let's do it again sometime!"

James Connell:
"Yes I was there my wife Beth (Josh knows her, cute blond with great bigs boobs) turned me on to your band a while back when you played at fish days I believe in Port Washington. Ive seen you guys play a few other places as well and each time I experience your gigs I think to myself there going to be very well known someday. Pretty much all the cover album songs that are played is minumaly distinct from the original artist you guys are that good just thought I would let ya know that. And if you plan on being at the camping gig next year we hopefully just purchased a Winabago and would love to maybe have a chance to get to know you guys better. Peace and keep rockin!!! JP."

Hunter (Poor Rich Kids):
"It was great rock'n with you guys. First time I was able to see you guys perform, and I must say you all put on one heck of a show. Thanks for having us.

P.S. Rico, thanks for the use of your thrown, next time I will try and remember mine."
