This Past Weekend in Ohio
Tue., Jan. 31. 2006 2:00am EST
Thanks to everyone who joined us this past weekend in Ohio for the Farewell Moose Mini-Tour. Friends and fans came from as far east as New York, as far west as Kansas, as far north as Minnesota, and as far south as Tennessee.
It was wonderful for us to get one more chance to play with Bill "Moose" Rieger, and we know it really touched him that so many of you came such a distance. In fact, it touched him so very much that when asked to say a few words at his final concert, the man we affectionately call "VH1 Storyteller" was rendered virtually speechless. Thank you all!
Thanks also to our concert coordinators: Mike Rogers (Friday in Reynoldsburg OH), Bobbi Bennett (Saturday in Dayton OH), and Christopher Rhodes (Sunday in Dover OH), and our CD table volunteers: LuAnn and Britteney (Reynoldsburg), Debbie and Audra (Dayton), and Krista, Pat, Jenn, Rachael, and Chuck (Dover).
Finally, thanks and sympathy to Eric "Smoothie" Gladson, who led our team of roadies, and also somehow acquired the name "Snuffy" in a mistaken-identity crisis similar to those that regularly befall ApologetiX bassist Keith "Insert Name Here" Haynie.
