A Word from Josh:
From 2004 to 2008 it was a tradition for us to play at an event called "Grafton Holidaze" at Lime Kiln Park during the week of Independence Day. That event was discontinued but now has reemerged in a slightly different form at Centennial Park as "Grillin' in Grafton." The alliterative name derives from the barbeque contest held earlier in the afternoon. The event also features a lot of music with The Katz Sass and Tim Castle & Young Southern giving healthy dose of blues and country (respectively) on the main stage before us. We took the stage at 6:00 pm under a glorious mostly-sunny sky and filled the sweet summer air with our brand of 80s pop metal into the twilight and beyond. After things got nice and dark we took a short break as a Color Guard came on stage and Menomonee Falls native Gianna Tarantino sang a rousing acapella rendition of the National Anthem to the patriotic delight of the crowd. This was followed by a spectacular fireworks show during which we continued with our show. This made for a pretty exciting combination. This also made for an awesome finale to our busy weekend. Grafton gave us a great time and we hope to be back next year.     --Josh
