A Word from Josh:
This was our third time playing at the Saloon on Calhoun. The first two times were very crowded and people complained that there were too many tables that took up space on what could have been a more expansive dance floor. This time their management took heed and removed most of the tables from the entire room. It seemed like the prudent thing to do at the time, but as showtime grew near it wasn't very crowded at all. Perhaps, in an ironic twist of fate, removing the tables wasn't necessary after all? WRONG! With a slew of last-minute arrivals we did end up with another HUGE crowd after all, and removing the tables seemed to make things more comfortable for everybody. This was a particularly busy weekend for the Saloon on Calhoun. On Friday night they hosted a special benefit show for the Cindee May Memorial Fund featuring several excellent bands. Cindee May Vandermeer was a young single mother who died unexpectedly as a result of a brain aneurysm on December 2. She was also a big fan of the local music scene, especially glam metal, and was often seen attending shows of many Milwaukee area bands including Cherry Pie. As such, she had a lot of cool friends and they showed their support in a big way with a huge turn-out on Friday night. I was fortunate enough to catch the last hour of the show on my way home from another gig. I was even able to participate when all-around awesome performer Gabriel Sanchez invited me up on stage for the last 5 songs of the night. I sang an old Jethro Tull song and then played drums on a few songs including an epic rendition of Prince's "Purple Rain" to end the night. So, for me personally, it was an awesome Saloon on Calhoun weekend.     -Josh
