A Word from Josh:
Gee, it seems like only three weeks ago that we last played at Rooter's. That's because the Love Monkeys had to cancel a show originally scheduled for this night and the club's management asked if we'd play instead. I think that's quite a compliment. Besides, Rooters is probably the room which takes the best advantage of our big stage show with it's deep stage and high ceiling. Plus, they always treat us great so we don't mind coming back often. Early on, we had trouble filling the dance floor, so John had to turn on that "extra charm" as he went out into the audience frequently to light a fire under the crowd's ass. Later, he took that expression literally as two lovely birthday girls Kristi and Tina (both turning 21) were brought up on stage where, after singing to them, John whooped their butts with the now-famous Rooters Birthday Ass Paddle. To be fair, he then let the girls have a turn spanking him in what had become an orgy of blistered buttocks. All this public beating went over great with the crowd, who by now had turned up their enthusiasm to a level that we're more used to.

Tonight marked the debut of a pair of new front bass drum heads with the Cherry Pie logo airbrushed on them. This led to the obvious question... "What do we do with the OLD logo drum heads?" Well, we got the unexpected opportunity to do something particularly meaningful with one of them as Joe Hansen of the U.S. 555th Fighter Squadron (Triple Nickel) was in attendence. He asked us to autograph a drum head so that he could display it at the Aviano Air Base in Italy. He told us that it would mean a lot to all the guys over there. Honestly, I don't know why memorabilia from a Milwaukee cover band would mean much to these brave folks, but I guess many of them feel that the spirit that a band like us represents is exactly the kind of thing that they are fighting for. You know what?... That makes us feel really good. For those about to rock, WE SALUTE YOU!    - Josh
