Well it's a Monday so we were not sure who would actually turn out for the show...this is actually the first time we have ever played a club show in Milwaukee. I don't know why after being a band for over 8 years, that we hadn¹t played there! I know Summerfest was always on the list of gigs to play, but the timing never worked out. Maybe next year? I hope so. After the show we had on that Monday night we really need to spend more time there.
The room wasn¹t packed out, but for our first time and it being a Monday, it was killer. Not to mention for some reason that night, it was about 90 % female ratio...so that always makes it nicer to sing to. The reaction after each song was as loud as any packed Chicago show, it almost felt like a listening room though when we did the quiet numbers. Brian and I played an acoustic version of Hero tableside without any amplification. We also asked KB (our solo opener) up on stage to jam with us during Rebecca. He rocked it. Very impressive he knew the lyrics better than I did. It was also great to meet some nice people after the show and talk tunes.
