Jessica Long contacted us back in January to arrange a surprise 50th birthday party for her husband, Greg. She wanted to book the 6th, but since we were playing at Hippies at the Village, we booked Tuesday, Greg's actual birthday. On Saturday, Jessica had what she called a "lame" party for Greg, with friends, family, and pizza. Little did he know that Jessica was listening a few years back when he said he wanted Raising The Dead to play his party! Greg was surprised, food was plentiful, and drinks were flowing, and we even brought our artist friend Jody Bauman to paint for the birthday boy. We had a great time on the new stage and played to an appreciative audience. Happy birthday, Greg!
