A Word from Josh:
I often comment on how much our Madison fans come through for us. But tonight there are no words that can describe the support we got from this amazing Madison crowd. Two of our previous three shows were in the Madison area so we worried that these people might be getting sick of us, but apparently not. And we are certainly appreciating the love. The packed house celebrated the New Year in a big way and we were glad to be a part of it. So many familiar faces in the house, including our good buddy Charles Thomas who joined us on stage for a song. That's always fun. We premiered several songs which seemed to go over well. We're always interested in feedback about new material. A couple new songs we had planned to play got dropped from the list at the last minute so they will make their debut at the next show. As exciting as this night was, things started to get bogged down late in the night when the bar was giving away a bunch of prizes but it was going pretty slow. After the show we found out that the staff had been dealing with a major incident in another part of the building where another party was going on in the "Cabin Room" and a big fight broke out. People got hurt, arrests were made and that party got shut down early. Meanwhile our party went the distance and we heard the news of the mayhem as we packed up our equipment. It was a top story on the local news by the time we got home. Some of our friends saw that and expressed concern for us, but it took place in a different venue and was completely unrelated to our show. So forward into 2015 where we have exciting plans to continue innovating our shows. Thanks for a great 2014 and we're looking forward to seeing you all again very soon.    --Josh

"What a fantastic show! We had a great time. Can't wait for Cherry Pie to play in my hometown, Wisconsin Rapids, on April 11th!"

"Porn Star Dancing? You're getting pretty far from your roots"
