A Word from Josh:
Our latest efforts to play in Illinois have led to a bit of a dual reality for us this summer. We've been bouncing back and forth between our "Home reality" playing packed festivals in Wisconsin and our "Illinois reality" where we continue to try to prove ourselves in off-season indoor venues. Obviously tonight's show fit into the latter category. Much like our show in Schaumburg three weeks ago, this club was new to most of the band, but very familiar to John who played here many times with ARRA. The facility is actually a very large complex with multiple rooms for dining and enjoying live music. We could hear an acoustic act entertaining a strong crowd on the patio as we loaded our equipment into the "Big Hall" toward the back of the building. Even here we were forced to take a back seat to a totally unrelated banquet as we set up on the stage. The doors were not opened to the public until after the banquet ended shortly after 10:00 pm. The whole thing made us feel like little more than a footnote in the evening's activities. But, of course, things heated up pretty quickly once the show started. The venue features a pretty nice elevated stage with synthetic parquet floor on which our pedals slid around all night. They also have a strong in-house sound system and a very impressive light show which made us feel right at home. The performance went pretty well, although the circumstances dictated a rather abbreviated set. It's hard to choose which songs to play when we are so limited by time. We were glad to draw a couple hundred people to the show. The spacious room has a capacity of over a thousand so hopefully we'll get more chances to fill it up later in the year and give these fine folks the full Cherry Pie experience.     --Josh
