A Word from Josh:

As I have mentioned before, The Roadhouse in Cedarburg is not a very big venue. Tonight, more than ever before, this fact became an issue as The Roadhouse seemed in danger of busting at the seams due to the huge crowd. It started a couple hours before the show with a surprise birthday party that our friend Chad Call arranged for his sister Kim Hauswirth who is rockin' it at 50. As showtime approached people poured through the door and it became obvious that this would be a very successful night. I knew that a lot more were yet to come because Jacki and Jon Marks were hosting a big party at their home nearby and would be bringing all their guests to the show. I wondered if they'd all be let in, that's how packed the room was getting. It was under these circumstances that the show got off to an electric start and the power kept surging all night.

I need to give a heart-felt shout-out to a group of people who came down to the show from Sheboygan. Laurie Tuczynski and Eric Crittinger were part of our earliest fan base from when we used to play in the Sheboygan area frequently back in 1999 and 2000. Tonight they came down with some friends to celebrate the life of a dear friend Shelly Korlesky who was also among that group of early Pie fans. Shelley died on Thursday at age 50 from complications related to multiple sclerosis. When we saw her over the years she was usually in a wheelchair but that never stopped her from being one of the most enthusiastic people in the crowd. This morning Laurie posted a picture on Facebook of herself and Shelley smiling broadly taken at a recent Cherry Pie show accompanied with the caption "No more wheels my friend. Only wings. Miss you so much already." We knew that Shelley liked to come to see us play, but it was astonishing to learn that we were very much on the minds of her friends as they dealt with her passing. We were very touched to play a role in the celebration of her life.

I would also like to acknowledge my wife Tammy in attendance tonight who will be undergoing major surgery to repair a valve in her heart this Thursday. Ever since she went public about her medical condition in late July the love and support people have been expressing toward us has been staggering. Today's medical technology is amazing and almost guarantees a positive outcome, but it is still a very scary procedure and the recovery process is very daunting. Recent weeks have been an emotional roller-coaster ride for her. All the well-wishes and offers to help out are very much appreciated and I can assure you that she feels the love. As her husband I can just tell you that I am so proud to be her partner in life and so glad to ride along with her on every adventure. It's always touching to hear how people see the love between us reflected in how we look at each other. People often tell us that we have something very special. They are right.

One more thing, this Tuesday marks the much anticipated end to the nauseating onslaught of political ads. I encourage you all to go out and vote for whoever you think is the second most disgusting candidate on the presidential ballot. Or don't, that's a part of living in a free country. Just remember... "If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice."     -Josh
