The Big Gig Begins Today

I moved to Wisconsin just ten years ago, but it wasn't until 2005 that I was introduced to the greatest music festival that I have ever been to, Summerfest. After serving eight years in the Marine Corps, I had forgotten just how much I loved live music. In 2005 I only went one night, but it only took that one night to get hooked.

Summerfest has become an annual event with me and my friends. A couple of us take the entire week off. We golf during the day, barbecue in the afternoon, and enjoy great music down at the lake front. Each year, the number of days I have attended has increased. Eight days last year. This year, I'm attempting to 'run the gauntlet'...all 11 days! There are plenty of good bands to see and at least one I want to see every night.

My lineup for tonight includes: American Motherload and the Lovehammers (You might remember Marty Casey from Rockstar: INXS)

So let the fun begin! Summerfest begins tonight!
