A Word from Josh:
This was our sixth show in the last nine days, quite a busy schedule for us. But, of course, we came ready to rock. This was a charity event benefiting the American Heart Association and, as the name suggests, it was mostly attended by motorcycle enthusiasts. The stage was a flatbed truck trailer at the edge of a modest tent placed in a grass field adjacent to the bar. We felt a bit cramped up there and we were forced to compromise our light show, but we made the best of the situation. The bikers in attendance really seemed to like what we were doing. In fact, among the crowd of only a couple hundred people, we saw a lot of wild behavior including some nudity (both male and female). Yes, there was a lot of drinking going on and some people, throwing inhibitions to the breeze, seemed to want to be a part of the show. John was frequently being greeted by overly-friendly rocker dudes at the front of the stage and by mid-way through the second set he often found himself bracketed by lovely young dancing ladies. Things took a nasty turn when one woman came around behind the stage during "Unskinny Bop" and started molesting Frankie while he was trying to play drums (no, that's not the nasty part). The song came to an end and John asked her very politely to leave the stage. "You can do whatever you want with our drummer after the show," he said. "But right now we need you to let him play." Well, she didn't heed John's request and continued hanging on Frankie as he launched us into the next song. Within seconds, she fell off the back of the trailer and, from the looks of things, seemed to land on her face. The music continued as staff people rushed to her aid. After a couple of minutes she finally got to her feet and was helped away while still clutching her mouth. We never heard any updates about her condition and we certainly hope that she's doing OK. The show rocked on to an intense conclusion. Then, for the encore, we spontaneously improvised the classic biker anthem "Born to Be Wild." It went pretty well considering we had never played it before. Our show was the conclusion of a day long event and organizers reported tremendous success in raising money for the cause. We had a nice time and were glad to be able to help.    --Josh

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

"As always, Cherry Pie was awesome! Your shows are such a GREAT time! A special thanks to Frankie for "rolling" on over (or should I say under) and into my arms! See you guys soon!"

"As you approach the bar you'll find a red and white tent and in the parking lot next to it a few rows of awesome looking bikes. When you enter the tent you just have a feeling that whatever happens here stays here. The stage was a flatbed but it didn't stop the guys from putting on a show of shows. And there's John, who has the most alluring sex appeal and physic, kept everyone intrigued throughout the show. It was a good night and you guys did a excellent job on the Born to be Wild song. It fit right into the spirit of the night. Also I want to say, my hat off to you for rockn' everyone this past holiday week and putting on four great performances. Each one was unique in their own way which I like because it doesn't follow the norm and each one stood on their own merits. It's nice to see something that doesn't follow suit. It tends to stand out more."

"I live across the street of Jugs Hitching Post and this show was amazing! You guys are a GREAT cover band! hope you can make it back to Jug's some time soon!"
