|A Word from Josh:
People must still have been buzzed about the amazing turn of events at the Iowa Democratic Caucuses on Monday because the crowd was hot and ready for action. The dance floor rocked like John Kerry headquarters, the music pulsed like the veins in Howard Dean's forehead, the vibe was as whacky as Dennis Kucinich and I think I spotted Joe Lieberman drowning his sorrows at the end of the bar. The night did not go without some technical problems. For example, right at the end of "Tom Sawyer" a roadie accidently kicked out the plug powering my entire keyboard and guitar rigs. Some might have said that I've never sounded better. But, we certainly didn't let some little electrical problems hurt a great show. After, what we lack in technical expertise, we more than make up for in sheer hubris. One storyline in tonight's show was how we made sure to play a Kiss tune because Erica requested it and drove all the way from Milwaukee to hear it. This prompted a bit of a fuss and some people accused us of complying with her request just because she's a beautiful woman. Well, to that I must say... Well, DUH! But seriously folks, we were probably going to do that song anyway. We're pretty lazy that way. Most fulfilled requests are actually happy coincidences, but we'll take credit for them. Hey, maybe WE should be running for office. Well, we had a great time with all you fine folks at the Badger Bowl, and now it's on to New Hampshire! --Josh
Were you at this show?
Would you like to comment on it?
"I took a rare weekend off from running my nightclub to see one of the best cover bands around. Made a special trip from Milwaukee to see the show. Great show and a great time. Keep up the good work. I liked poison/ACDC mix."
"You guys kick ass! One of the best cover band I have ever seen. I love your new drummer!... I haven't been disappointed yet. You guys kick ass! See ya in March."
"I must admit, I was a critic of Rico at first, only because they didnt showcase him and show what he has. After Fridays show I realize this guy rocks. your drum solo was the bomb. Your true talent was highlighted and you took the roof off the place. You do add something to the same old same old.. good for you. sometimes change is goodddddddd"
"Now this is the way to spend a snowy winter night!! The band was rocking hard. Kicking ass with great songs which included a song I haven't heard for awhile. Even the music that was used for the prelude before each set was different. Nothing like spontaniety to keep things interesting! John kept the crowd wanting more with his charisma and fantastic voice. Not to mention, looking good in those outfits and his sexy smile! This was a fantastic show that ended with a rocking encore song. I left feeling wanting more and so looking forward to the next show!"
"I guess I owe you guys a big THANK YOU for playing my song!! I definitely appreciate it. The show was worth the trip - but then again, it always is :) Thanks again!!"
