Best show ever and why
When started out we were very under priced and still might be but the first show the it really hit home afters but was amazing during was a show in the middle of nowhere south central pa called Hegins. We were literally swamped most of the time
Worst show ever and why
A show in the Hudson valley NY on memorial day just because it was almost 100 degrees and 100% humidity
