A Word from Josh:
This has been a week that has put Cherry Pie Nation in shock. Wednesday morning we learned that our original drummer Nick, a popular "Piece of the Pie" from our inception in early 1999 until the summer of 2003, had been badly injured along with two of his family members in a fire at the fireworks factory where he works. By this morning, we knew that the lives of all three injured men were no longer in danger but Nick and his cousin Rocco will remain hospitalized for a while dealing with serious burns on their arms and faces. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nick and his family as they go through the recovery process. We look forward to seeing them again out at a show soon. As for tonight's show, well, we couldn't have asked for a better morale booster. The crowd at the Badger Bowl was spectacular and really filled the air with a positive vibe as we took the stage. The show went very well and we really enjoyed ourselves. The sing-along parts were particularly impressive as the collective voice of the masses rose above the blare of our amplifiers on many occasions. This was our 42nd show at the Badger Bowl (most of any single venue) and it was also one of the best, and that's really saying something. Cherry Pie shows have always been about having a good time. But sometimes "real life" has a way of elevating what we do into a celebration of life itself. To everybody who came out and rocked with the Pie tonight, thank you for being a part of the magic.     --Josh

Would you like to comment on it?

"Guys, Great show last night! My wife and I had a great time watching you perform. I especially liked your versions of "Bed of Roses" and "Still of the Night"...very cool stuff! To Dave, thanks for taking the time to chat and show off the candystripe wolfie. Wolfies rule! I hope we can arrange a show together sometime. Drop me an email and we'll have your peeps talk to my peeps and we'll get it on! :) Best wishes, and all the continued success!"

Richard Miller:
"It was another great night with Cherry Pie after their long absence from the Badger Bowl. They came armed with a new drummer and a new song. One of their strengths is their sizable repertoire, which keeps their shows fresh. Their triple-threat lead vocalists allow them to cover more ground, too. They played many of my favorites and showcased each members' talents in turn. I enjoy the enthusiasm Frank, their new drummer, adds to the mix. He brings with him solid technical skill and a notable stage presence - no easy feat from behind a large kit. He kept things interesting back there with lots of flourishes and stick-spins. A couple minor miscues went virtually unnoticed - we were all having fun and keeping it light. His enthusiasm may have gotten the better of him on "Working for the Weekend" though, swapping out the signature 1-2-3 cymbal crashes with sustained double-bass attack. I'm anxious to hear him use that in "Hot for Teacher" instead. He's obviously got some kick-ass chops and I can't wait to hear what new material may be added in the future. Hes a good fit and won't be referred to as "the new guy" for long!"

"This is good bar for friends to meet and have a great time. Then you add CherryPie as your live entertainment, you'll find yourself and your friends, getting rowdy way beyond your hinderances. As soon as the CP guys played their first notes, some of the people were racing up to the dance floor to get closer to the band. The guys put on a show that turned the place into a sauna filled with sweat and smoke. John, showing off his aggressive demeanor and his stealthiness of a panther, was able to control the crowd and keep them intriqued. Due to some restraints that were around me through the night, it would have been nice to let more of my wild side out, but all in all, I still had a great time."

"I made it out to the Badger Bowl to see you guys for the third time. This may not seem like much, but I make the drive from Minneapolis. This time I brought three Pie virgins and we had a blast! Can't wait for the next time I get a chance to make the drive to see you. Rock on boys!"
