Now that our anniversary concert is a wonderful memory, IMT should be returning to a normal routine. At least as normal as it can get for summer.
I want to thank all of the fantastic bands that performed at the concert. Thank you to No Commitment,
If All Else Fails, The Defused, Volt, Dr. Lou & the Privileged Few, The Count Josephine Band and Lore Constantine. You all did an incredible job! And thank you to Cherry Hill Township for supplying the venue. Such a beautiful place for a concert!
I would also like to thank Angel Casiano and John Carr for singing the National Anthem with Bill. Thanks to Angel, Lou Pica and John Moceri for backing up Bill on his original “Arrive Alive.”
And special, special thanks to John Carr for bringing the backline and PA, plus setting up the bands the whole day. John you are the best! Footage of the day will begin airing next Saturday. Of course, on IMT we can only air the original music.
I’m sorry for anyone who did not attend the concert, because you missed out on all the remarkably entertaining cover songs all the bands rocked out on that day. You’ll only be able to enjoy the originals that IMT will present on the next few shows.
Next concert, make sure to come out and listen to great bands performing a collective of classic rock, in addition to their original songs.
Tonight’s show features The Black Feathers from our taping in early spring at Dr. Lou’s Place. Because of so many requests, Artisan has returned with their most talked about original. Then from a fundraiser held at The Coastline, a song from Danny & the Juniors and another from Blue Heather.
Next week IMT will begin the airing of Croft Farm Rockfest footage. The bands will be listed in next week’s blast. I don’t want to forget to thank our concert sponsors. Thank you to ‘mom’ from Woodstock Trading Company, our newest sponsor. Stop in and check out all the great merchandise. I know you will love this place!
One of our past sponsors returned, Qwik Fix Jewelry Repair. Kerry, thanks for coming back to help make this concert possible! Dr. Lou’s Place has been with us from the start. Thank you Lou for your support and performing at the show. Good Luck with your new Wing Shop at Burlington Center Mall!
And last, but not least, the biggest thanks goes to Mark Oberstaedt. Mark, we could never have pulled this off without you. Our deepest gratitude for everything you did to make this a wonderful project on which to work. And thanks to No Commitment for allowing Bill to sing “Smoke on the Water” with you that day. Thank you Mark for the suggestion!
Hope you all enjoy the upcoming shows! We’ll be posting more photos of the Rockfest soon, courtesy of Craig Kupper and Cherry Hill Patch!
