BSR returns home after a great Fox Valley three night run.
Wow! We like you too Fox Valley! We were very humbled and excited playing 3 jam-packed venues this weekend. We want to thank everyone that came out and hope you had as much fun as we did. We saw some familiar faces and a ton of fresh faces on this run.
We kicked things off Thursday night at Barley & Hops in Oshkosh, WI. Our first time at this venue, we didn't know what to expect but shortly realized a sign promoting their drink special for that night was $6 rail mix PITCHERS. These kids come to PARTY and DANCE. And dance they did, on a shoulder-to-shoulder filled dance floor all night.
That great energy carried over to the next night where we found ourselves at the Cold Shot in Appleton, WI. When the owner/sound guy shows up wearing his BSR t-shirt we gave him last time we played there, we quickly remembered why we like playing this place. They take their music seriously, and as a result it's kind of a "Musician's Bar" which was evident by all the musicians there. One of which we invited up to sit in for a song with his harmonica. (Thanks Royce!) A strong crowd again made this a fantastic show. It helps so much when we get to share that energy with you.
On Saturday, it was off to Green Bay, WI to play the Hinterland Brewery Restaurant for our first time. Great beer, great food, and another great crowd made the third night as fresh as the first and second. We really liked playing Hinterland and can't wait do it again. On Sunday, we were off to Lambeau Field for the Packers/Bears game. We ate Bear at a tailgate party Bear-B-Que, stood on the field next to Aaron Rogers before the game, and watched the Packers destroy the Bears to top off the weekend. (When I say "Bears still", you say "Suck"!)
If you were at any of the shows and are reading this, please be sure to sign up for our newsletter if you haven't already so we can party with you again. But you won't know when and where the party is going down unless you sign up! Cheers.
