Show Report: Rhonda’s Speakeasy

Posted By Mr. Hand on July 15th, 2010

We had a fun and interesting time at Rhonda’s Speakeasy this past weekend. First off we pretty much always have a good time there, but this time Rhonda was throwing a Prom Theme party on the Saturday night.

Now Mr. Hand has played our fair share of proms over the years, but this was certainly the most interesting! Adults digging out prom gowns and suits to relive those old prom memories. Needless to say it was quite fun and we did our part and “dressed up” for the event as well…check out the pictures!

Show Report: Divots Summerfest 2010

Posted By Mr. Hand on July 7th, 2010

We’re a little late with this report but better late than never! Summerfest this year was hot. I mean really hot. But it was totally awesome!

We were lucky enough to open the show again this year, for in our opinion the best lineup they’ve ever had – Rick Springfield, Loverboy, Night Ranger and the Rude Band. We kicked things off from the Jagermeister Stage shortly after the gates opened at 3pm and took all the sun could dish out with the 105° heat index during our set. Did I mention it was hot?

But we stood tall and rocked. The show also turned out to be the debut show for our new cd, Second Start. We finally had our finished cd’s in hand and played several songs from the cd, but most importantly we really appreciated the response from everyone who defied the heat to listen to us and buy a cd.

We have some great pictures to share…some good action shots during our set, one with the winner from our Summerfest ticket giveaway, and our friend Mike who met Rick Springfield after the show while wearing his Mr. Hand shirt proudly!

Thanks again to Shawn and the Divots staff as well as Dave and his Jagermeister Stage crew. It was a day we’ll never forget!

Show Report: Pender, NE

Posted By Mr. Hand on July 7th, 2010

Another summer, another Q125 party! This year the Q125 celebration took place in Pender, NE and I could have sworn that every person who has ever lived in Pender was there.

We played for their Friday night street dance and had great weather and thanks to a last minute reprieve from the Nebraska Dept. of Roads they were able to have alcohol at the event. All these factors combined to create a great party atmosphere! We were so honored to be there and help celebrate Pender’s history.

Anyone who knows us well knows that Jeff and Bret are from Beemer, which is just down the road from Pender and also has a Q125 celebration coming up next summer. After playing in Bancroft last year for their celebration and now for Pender, both towns have set the bar high and we look forward to see what Beemer will come up with for next year. Heck, maybe we’ll go 3 for 3 and play for another Q125!
