|A Word from Josh:
This was our third and final night at the State Fair this year. The first two nights were pretty good, but tonight was the climax. Everything went right and we had one of the best shows that we've had in a long time. Being Friday night at the Fair, the pavilion was packed full of people from the stage to out in the street from our first note to our last. Off to the side, dozens of people stood and danced on table tops and benches. Down the middle, the sea of faces and fists really got us charged up and kept us on an emotional high all night. It didn't hurt that a couple of different women saw fit to flash us during the show. Quite ironic considering the fact that John had to work hard all night to choose his words carefully because of children in attendance. But, if this was a "family" crowd, then it was certainly the wildest most rockin' family crowd I've ever seen. --Josh

Would you like to comment on it?
"This was the first time that I had a chance to see you guys -- although I had always heard good things about your show. You guys were phenomenal -- every song was awesome! Thanks for a great time -- I'll be back soon."
Peggy & Mari:
"Loved every minute, the music, the energy, the band and their great dance moves, the crowd and all the fun. Thanks for a great birthday present, spending time with Cherry Pie."
"Rockin show as usual and was awesome to see soooo many of the regs out again! Kisses and hugs to Jas, Jewelz, Jody, The Pegasus boys, Greg, Scott, and Beth. Thank you so much for giving Mikey a shout out for his big 13 too! You were the "cherry" on the icing of the cake! Luv yas!!"
"I caught you guys at the end of the night.......what an excellent show. Thanks for letting me on stage with the bubbles! Keep up the good work."
"You guys rocked (as usual)! Always a good time!!"
"Awesome show - never seen you guys in a more adult setting tho. (Fair has kiddo's runnin' around everywhere and I know you're censored) I want the raw, uncensored rockers that I know you can be. Any dates coming up in October? ;)"
Donavan & Becky:
"Hey guys! That was some show you put on that night! It was probably one of the best shows we have seen you all do! We had alot of fun, and we thank you!! Rock on, guys!!.......Hey Shane! Loved the Alice Cooper shirt!!"
"No matter how many days in a row these guys play, they always put on potent shows. Their performance pumps so much adrenaline into the crowd, whether it be a large turnout or a few, it seems to end up with the fans either singing along or in some way in sync with the band. And John seems to get everyone wild with his heart-stopping voice and the way he can lead the crowd into a rage of rockn' animals. These guys sure can put a smile on any face whether they are young or old."
"you guys were great."
