|A Word from Josh:
Gee, who would have thought that, so soon after digging out of the snow, we'd be longing for the return of cold weather. But such was the case inside BuBs during this show as temperatures got a bit out of hand resulting in a lot of sweat flying around both on and off the stage. Perhaps such sauna-like conditions should not be too surprising when you put over 700 people in close quarters and then throw some hot 80s rock into the mix. Outside, the evening was cooling down but the occasional open door was not enough to dampen the sizzle indoors. Yeah, it was hot -- but I don't mean to complain. I can think of at least four shows that were considerably hotter (three of them were outdoors) and really, all this warmth helped ensure a well-lubricated show. Indeed the show went very well and the huge crowd was every bit as enthusiastic as they were hot. Speaking of hot, some of the women in the front row were expressing themselves in various provocative ways including a pair who impersonated the crawling women from the "Rock You Like a Hurricane" video. Another pair of ladies earned a pair of opening day Brewer's tickets the old fashioned way... with a big wet kiss. "Anything that involves two women exchanging bodily fluids is a winner in my book," explained John. We also gave away tickets for our Shark City show on April 29 and our big Northern Lights show with Rhythm Method on June 3. People from The Brew were on hand promoting Monday's show at Miller Park before the Brewers' home opener. 'See ya'll out at the ballgame. --Josh

"You bet your booties it was HOT at BuBS......the performance was once again " remarkable " !! It was nice to meet you Josh...."
"Well since I was MIA from the Rooters show...I decided last minute to surprise everyone and make the journey out to Bub's! What a night, it was definitely HOT - but we made the best of a HOT situation with lots of water, ice, oh and can't forget about the Lemons! As always we had a great group to party with (Jody, Kat, Jen, Kev, Tim, Jas, Tammy, Julie & Even Poison!)"
"You guys put on one hell of a show! They actually had to turn some people away at the door."
"You guys really rocked this place. I'm in a band too and came away with a just a bit of jealousy that makes me practice that much harder! This show had the audience from the first note to the last. Awesome Show!"
