Backstage Pass from Naperville, IL ~ July 5, 2014 

We end this tour leg tonight here in Naperville, IL, having traversed many countries and time zones in the last three weeks – beginning in Oslo, Norway, taking a jaunt to the UK for a private show, then on to Paris and Blainville Crevon, France, before making our way down to Terceira – one of the Azore islands off the coast of Portugal. After that we performed for the first time in Sofia, Bulgaria then headed back to where we began in the USA returning for the third time to Snoqualmie, WA and finally tonight here in Naperville, IL – just outside Chicago. We’re all pretty whipped from the travel and jet lag and all agree that touring with Roger is never boring!

This is the 27th year for the Naperville Ribfest - Presented by Exchange Cluband they are projecting 45,000 coming during the four days. There are two stages, with five bands today, carnival rides, food – everything anyone could ask for. We had a few rain drops in the late afternoon, however it cleared when Roger took the stage and the audience indeed did as Roger invited and left all their problems outside and sang and danced all night long. And now that the show is over, we will be treated to a feast of family style ribs!

In late August we will be heading back to Europe for a run of five fantastic shows in Germany and what a night it will be at the Gibraltar Music Festival in early September. We hope to see you at one or more of these shows!
