July 17, 2014 RockFest July 17th, 2014 in Cadott, WI.
Hi friends, so REO and Sammy Hagar seriously owned the state of Wisconsin last night. We co-headlined Rockfest, an old school four day rock festival held in the heart of the state in the small town of Cadott. The Hagar dressing room was a party right up until showtime, when Sam invited Dave and I into the pre-show prayer huddle with his band mates Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham, and Vic Johnson. Lots of bands have rituals before they go on which are normally quite private so we were quite honored, seriously. I sang some backup vocals on their version of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love"...I love that kind of stuff.
Meanwhile, Robert Lamm and I are busy working on the vocal trading plans, and Jimmy Pankow is reportedly almost finished with the horn charts for our songs for the joint encore on the upcoming REO/Chicago tour. Hard to believe the first show is July 31 in Concord, CA in the Bay Area...then down to the Greek Theater in LA, over to Phoenix, and then the amazing Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver. Quite a first week of the tour! The excitement is building in both our camps and with fans of both our bands. You guys do not want to miss this once in a lifetime tour collaboration.
Tonight we make our return to the Moondance Jam here in Walker, Minnesota. We are just having too much fun this weekend!
Rock on, kc
