A Word from Josh:
The Lake Mills Town and Country Days festival takes place in and around Commons Park in the middle of town. The stage for our show is a supersized gazebo which provides some technical challenges for us, but works about pretty well in the end. John spends parts of the show singing from a section of bushes which surrounds it. Most of the crowd gathers in a large fenced-in open-air space in the grass between the stage and the beer tent. Many others, including under-21 folks, watch the show from outside the fences. It's a pretty cool set-up combining the feel of a vibrant small town with the power of a Pie show. The crowd tonight was great and included a wide variety of crazy. Speaking of crazy, our former bass player Dann Walters was on hand and John brought him on stage for some old-fashioned rock n'roll banter. The crowds always love to see him visiting his old band. The show went pretty well and included a guest appearance by my son Ben who joined us on drums for one song. Normally he's a jazz player, but it's good to see that he can rock when called to do so. The festival staff seemed to enjoy our show despite the confetti and streamers we left on the grass. It appears likely that we will be back here again next year. Looking forward to it.     --Josh

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

"Cherry Pie maintained professionalism right from the start. In the beginning of the show Cherry Pie had competition in the audience. A small group had one to many.Their antics were distracting and intensely humorous. How John was able to sing through this I will never know. As usually, the show was total awesomeness!"

Raging Soul:
"I'm a rocker and that's what I like and apparently so do some other fans. And if you guys remember that when a woman teases you and doesn't do anything after a while you dump her and are pissed off. Well that's what some of your fans are doing, they're getting teased and not getting the rock and are pissed because they are getting ripped off. So if we have to find our rock jams with another band because you can't put out, so be it."

"Two CherryPie shows back to back what more could you ask for. The weather was perfect and so was the size of the crowds. Between both shows, the first one had more rock and fun-filled entertainment and the second one, was more laid back and let's say, comfortable. The only thing that was really consistent were the excerpts of great guitar riffs of different rock songs that were performed really well. As for most of the fans, including myself, it would have been nice to hear a full song from one of those excerpts. But to the bewilderment of most of the crowd, it was just to antagonize and to get a rise out of most of the fans only to be let down which seems to be an on going thing lately. The shows are somewhat great but it seems, at times, it's like a dragster sitting at the line and the driver, who's in control, like an engineer of a train, opens up the engine to show off it's horsepower which gets the crowd excited to see this dragster tear down the strip, but when the light turns green, the driver drives slow because he can't handle the power of the dragster and the crowd ends up booing at him with disappointment."

"Great show last night! Ripped jeans and all!"
