Donnie's played this before a few times. I'm sure he's the headliner.

He plays a full set. There are a couple of new hotels within walking distance of this, though you'd be walking the length of a pretty big mall complex to get to it. You could actually drive to it and be there in about a minute.

Is this show general admission once you get into the Rib Fest?

Yeah, you just pay admission price to the RibFest and the show is included in the price. The stage has plenty of space in front of it.

:clap:

Great show last night. Seemed like a bigger crowd than the last time they played this event a few years ago.

Good set list with no speed bumps to slow it down. Nice to hear "Riding Thunder" again. Lots of energy (as usual) from all, with an added kick from Kevin Valentine on drums. I was back about 50 feet from the stage near the sound boards and aside from some occasion feedback from the mics, the sound was excellent.

These guys put on a show like this one in Michigan and Arizona in the coming months and they might even see a bump in sales of their back catalog. :lol:

We were a bit back on the left side facing the stage as we didn't stake a claim to a spot early. Great turnout there for Donnie and the guys, the place was packed.

Since Grushecky ran late, I think they had to cut a song or two from their set. Great time... can't wait for the show in 2 weeks now.

The band sounded great. Kevin kicking butt as usual and Marty was really ripping it up on guitar.

Donnie was over at Buffalo Wild Wings after the show signing bottles of beer and also unused KCL six pack cases.
