A Word from Josh:
Playing at the annual Rooterpalooza charity event at Rooters is a proud tradition for us that goes back many years. Tonight's event was one of the more memorable ones for a several reasons. Yes, that was my own wife who took a moment from her cage dancing to win the 50/50 raffle. Way to go honey! As always, Rooterpalooza featured a silent auction full of cool stuff. I bid on many of the food-related items but didn't win any. Another special thing about Rooterpalooza is having multiple bands. Tonight the show got started with a great set of 80s Rock from Bad Medicine. Our lengthy offering of 80s Rock followed, but it was what happened at the end of the show that most people will be talking about. As an encore, we invited several members of Bad Medicine back on to the stage for one of those "All-star Jams." Playing together, we performed both bands' namesake songs in a over-the-top display of musical camaraderie. Although this had been planned in advance, it had not been rehearsed and many of the details were still uncertain until the last minute, which made the fact that it all came off so well a pleasant surprise. Once again it goes to show that you just can't stop 80s Rock!!     --Josh
