A Word from Josh:
On Wednesday a series of thunderstorms swept through southern Wisconsin. 48 hours later it was still raining. It finally stopped Friday afternoon shortly before we started setting up the show in the Fireman's Park pavillion. But the skies still threatened as showtime approached. But that didn't prevent a lot of people from visiting Richfield Days, a quaint festival which included amusement rides and a softball tournament. Indeed, it was as if the positive vibes from the town eventually drove away the clouds to allow for a great night of fun and entertainment. The show went very well, witnessed by a crowd of several hundred people, many of whom were teenagers. Perhaps we did a lot tonight to ensure a fan base for a few years to come. The stage rose only a few inches above the concrete floor and wooden beams ran across only about a foot above our heads. But the stage was wide and deep which helped facilitate our high energy performance. We met a lot of new fans of all ages. Of course some familiar faces also came out to the show from places such as Grafton, Germantown, West Bend, Waukesha and Fond du Lac. One long-time fan in attendance was Maribeth who also brought her husband and kids to the show. She and her daughter Kierstin had made a big cherry cheesecake which they presented to the band during the show. This was not the first time they've done this, if fact it has become somewhat of a tradition. I love tradition... yum! Overall, a great time with a family vibe, yet still totally rockin' hard. After the show the rains returned reminding us of how fate enabled a wonderful night.     --Josh

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

"u guys rocked!!!"

"you guys were awesome!"

"You guys ROCKED Richfield!! See ya again soon!!"

"Leave it up to CherryPie to wake up this sleepy little town. Once they started to perform, the people seem to come out from places unknown. The guys lit up the stage with their electrifying performance. And John, first wearing his Slayer shirt that brings out his attitude and later the silver mesh shirt which shows off his great physic, brought the crowd to their knees because he is one strong-willed powerhouse. These CP guys can sure wake up the sleeping lion in anyone."
