|A Word from Josh:
This gig took place in a tent set up on the grass outside the Red Barn bar in the small town of Evansville. Things seemed rather quaint early on, but people kept arriving and, by the second set, things really got cooking. Speaking of cooking, the fine folks from the Red Barn provided us with some pork sandwiches. Yum yum. I was happy. Also bringing joy were the lovely Jägermeister girls who did their thing selling shots as they made their way through the crowd. I can testify that they were really into their roles. During our break they were hanging out in the building near our dressing area and I heard one of them singing the chorus of the Motley Crue song we had just played, adding a tiny modification... "Jäger Girls, Girls, Girls!" It was a beautiful thing. Things got more and more fun as the night progressed. Shane did a masterful job of getting people excited when we returned to the stage for an encore. He asked the crowd what song they wanted to hear and started offering the choices. People shouted their support for the songs they liked. Then when he mentioned "Crazy Train" the whole tent went ballistic. We proceeded to tear the roof off with the Ozzy classic and finished the show with a bang. And, as if that weren't enough, I new that I still had some pork sandwiches waiting for me. --Josh

Would you like to comment on it?
"It waslike a being at a second cousins wedding, just a big huge fun party!!lots and lots and dancing going on!!! the people were a very friendly bunch and man can they drink! :)Loved the "tiny bubbles" better than beach balls bonking ya in the head anytime. Just had a blast, only complaint it ended too soon! Jas you girl are "too much" and to the "lady roadie" you know who you are....so glad we had a chance to talk and really get to know each other "you rock"!!!! :) Watch for many pics to come! Next up Waunafest!!!"
"Beautiful night, party people, great band with the best frontman in the area! John really has an incredible vocal range (is there anything he can't sing?) and he's hot too. Perfect combination!! Speaking of Crazy Train, I saw a top Chicago band perform it today, and it just fell flat after seeing CP last night!!"
"After driving 2 hours from Waukesha, It was worth every moment! You guys are just wonderful! The best show around! I had a wonderful time dancing and singing to the music! Rock and roll lives forever! You guys are very sexy and sweet!"
"you guys put me on stage with hog that kicked ass my road name was hogger when i road bike with a club i will be at your next show in waunkee hope u guys play at the red barn again later"
"Very Fun night. Had a blast!!! CherryKitty you are a very cool girl, and Jeanie and her daughter, glad that you guys made it, I hope to see you again real soon."
"Missed ya in Beloit so I got to see ya in Evansville. You guy are awesome. Love the 80's hair band music. There isn't many around here that still do that much. Hopefully my band will get to your caliber someday. I love that Wolfgang guitar as well :) Great job on those tunes. I was in heaven. Check out our band at: http://www.crosswire.batcave.net"
"There's just something about an outside show. People seem to be more wild and carefree. The night started out slow, but as the band played those kickass songs with such fervor, the people started to come closer to the stage. And John,with those exhilerating moves,sexy attributes, killer outfit,altogether, these things were enough to turn up the heat to a raging inferno. This turned out to be a very exciting and exhausting show. And to make it even more stimulating, they played a song I haven't heard for awhile and a favorite of mine, Can't Get Enuff!! No wonder I find it so hard to keep away."
"The show was just a hop, skip and a jump from home. YOu guys need to play closer more often.It was a lot of fun not having to worry about what time to be home. By the way, we agree that JOhn is hot and JOsh needs to grow up."
