A Word from Josh:
Tonight's show was riddled with asterisks. Just look at the setlist above, you know, those little star thingies. Those indicate songs that we never played before and tonight there were twelve of them! That's right, it's been three weeks since our last gig and we've been spending that time learning new material. Well, of course it's not literally NEW material, it's still rooted in the 80s, but it's new to us, you get the idea. Anyway, infusing a show with so many new songs is exciting. I had been telling friends that attending this show would be a great opportunity to see us mess up a lot. But, that didn't really turn out the be the case, thankfully. We played the new stuff pretty well, and it was pretty well received by the crowd overall. Now were interested to hear what you liked best and which songs left you flat (if any). Because if there's two words that describe Cherry Pie (besides the words Cherry and Pie) it's Market Research. One thing that was somewhat amusing to see was how gender specific some of the songs were. "I Can't Hold Back" had most of the women in the crowd singing a lot while the men stood by holding their purses, and "Highway Star" definitely got a lot the fellas' blood pumping while their ladies were rolling their eyes waiting for the next Bon Jovi song. We were very pleased to return to the bar scene for such a strong crowd. Indeed, as some things change, the overall mission stays the same and we're grateful for everybody along for the ride.     --Josh

"Great show. Really liked the new songs you guys did. Liked the beginning, with John in front of the curtain instead of behind it. You guys just keep on getting better and better everytime we see you. The band is addicting, the music is addicting--------Until the next time---Keep on Rockin!"

Bittersweeteus:
"What can I say, you guys put on one hell of a show! Once you entered that stage, you took charge and ruled the night. And John, who's one hot struttin man, rode the night out like a free spirit. I was way beyond impressed with the show and especially with those new songs. Songs from some great bands that I enjoyed listening to when I was young and as a matter of fact, I still enjoy listening to them."

Jeff:
"Awesome gig!! I loved all the new songs. Frankie, great stick work, U R a very visual drummer. Everyone has great showmanship. I loved all the videos you play before the show starts."
