Fort Wayne Show

We played in Fort Wayne, Indiana, last night... and it was a very unique experience... We had flown from Seattle, Washington, all the way out to this part of the country.... We were met by all these wonderful folks!

As sometimes happen in the business of rock and roll, we encountered a little "technical problem". The generator died as we were about to hit our first note! The crowd was so awesome... we couldn't just sit around and wait for the power to come back on, so Jay and I decided to improvise a little sing-along. The hats added to the campy-ness of it all. :)

In fact, I believe some of the sing-along made it onto YouTube!

In the end, we powered the show off the bus generator, and the rock and roll ensued. Yes, that's a fuzzy windscreen on my mic. I like it, ok?

We enjoyed our night in Fort Wayne... walking away feeling like we got to experience a special night. Sometimes when things go wrong, opportunities are created. We got to be a part of a night with more interaction and spontaneity than most other shows.

Thanks for making it a wonderful night for us, and I hope we were able to do the same for you!

p.s. I've received a few emails from people that weren't able to stay long enough to see the show.... If you are one of these people, we are terribly sorry! Please email me at We are working on a way to make it up to anyone who missed out on the show due to the late start time....

I was at that concert and it was seriously the most fun I've ever had. The tech and scheduling problems weren't you guys' fault but you more than made up for it. From Justin's drum solo to when you told me and my cousin a story about how your dog ate the Chick-fil-a cow I had a BLAST.
