A Word from Josh:
For better or worse, the Badger Bowl has been virtually a home away from home for me for many years. I've played there so many times with a lot of different bands, I've run lights there for other bands, I've seen dozens of other bands there and occasionally I just hang out there and watch other people get drunk. With that kind of history for me it wasn't hard to get nostalgic when, during set up, I heard Blood, Sweat & Tears' "Spinning Wheel" on the jukebox. When I was a small kid (yes, I was small once) BS&T was one of the very few "hip" things that my Dad played on the stereo at home. I grew up loving that song. So much so that in 1993 I recorded a "remake" of it featuring the unique vocal talents of George LeGros, a close friend of mine who died of cancer in 2001. He and I worked together at the Badger Bowl many times over the years and hearing the song made me think of him. Well, a Cherry Pie show isn't really the best place for wistful meloncholy. Fortunately, I got over it by the time we hit the stage. The show went well. Not quite as packed as our last visit here, but that just meant a little more elbow room for people to enjoy themselves. Once again we helped bartender Tanya celebrate her birthday and I must say that she was looking hotter than ever. With another show coming up in less than 24 hours you might think that we'd hold back a bit to save our energy... but we're not that smart :-P     -Josh

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

"I just wanted to say thanks for making my b-day party so much fun. I can always count on you guys for a good time."

"Hey- just wanna say our "small" group of 12 that goes out all the time thinks you guys are by far the best area band, and as a matter of fact, lately we only go to bars you guys are playing at! After seeing C.P, no other local band is worth watching, even for free. We are glad you guys work so often and hard playing, it gives us something to look forward to during the work work - rock on. ps, you guys gonna bring back some of the songs you dont play anymore? Thanks, Dave. CHERRIE PIE ALWAYS DELIVERS!"
