"2015 SUMMER CONCERT SERIES" ASHLAND BROOKSIDE PARK BANDSHELL / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW


Dear KRUSH KREW,
We would like to thank all of you who helped promote the show and came out to support us at the Guy C. Memorial Bandshell "2015 Summer Concert Series" on Sunday August 2nd. The event was the concert of the summer! It was a huge success and we couldn't have done it without you! It was arguably the nicest day of the entire summer. You couldn't have asked for a better day to play! The crowd turnout was amazing! It was as large if not larger than the crowd we performed for the last time we played there in 2013 and 2006. We were informed that it was one of the largest turnouts there this year at the Bandshell! Again, thank you for your help in promoting this event! We had such a blast playing for you! It was so much fun playing for so many people. The time went by too fast. We were just getting warmed up and started. We wanted to play another four hours for you. It was the event of the year!
Let's do this again next year and every year! That would be awesome. It just doesn't get any better than that!
Congratulations to the winner of the electric guitar!

2015 200 ASHLAND BICENTENNIAL KICK-OFF / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW

Dear KRUSH KREW,

We would like to thank everyone for coming out and braving the inclement weather to support KRUSH at the 200 ASHLAND BICENTENNIAL KICK-OFF, Downtown Ashland, on Saturday night, June 27th, 2015 and be a part of history in the making. We all got to celebrate the kick-off of Ashland’s 200th birthday together! There were people there to rock it up with KRUSH from all across the country, not just Ashland!
It was nothing less than a miracle that we even got to perform at all. The entire week leading up to the event, meteorologists were saying that it would be a 100% chance of rain (torrential downpours with flooding), 25mph wind gusts, and that any and all outdoor events across Ohio would be a total washout. Thank you God for holding off the rain!
You could feel the energy in the crowd and we all had a great time in spite of the gloomy forecast. It was rocking! We were told later that you could hear it up on Morgan Avenue.
Again, thanks to everyone who came! Special thanks to Rick, Sondra, and everyone on the 200 Ashland Bicentennial Kick-Off Committee and Stephanie of Kingston, who sponsored the event.
Thanks to Full Spectrume Sound (Ken & Devin) for doing an outstanding job! Thanks to our road crew - Rick, T.J., Trent, and Mandy. Thanks to Randy, our 4th KRUSH brother, for doing a great job on the guitar. Thanks to Joan for all your hard work and fantastic  performances, Thanks to Karen for all that you do! We’d like to thank all of you who participated in the Tom -Tom Club. Thanks to Cheyenne, Celeste, and Cierra for performing with KRUSH. Nice job ladies! Thanks to Midgie, Betty Jo, Gracie, Chissy, Patches, Black Stuff, Kosmo, and Mackie and all our brothers and sisters there in spirit. Thank you to everyone who prayed for us. Thanks to everyone who wanted to come but couldn’t because of the weather. We missed you and we’ll see you next time!
We couldn’t have done it without each and everyone of you!
Let’s get together and do it again in another 200 years! (I’m just saying….)
HAPPY 200th BIRTHDAY ASHLAND!

See you next time!

KRUSH - Keith, Kevin, & Garry


(P.S. Lets keep the party going! Come see KRUSH perform at the Guy C. Myers Memorial Band Shell Amphitheater at Brookside Park on Sunday August 2nd from 8:00 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.)

2013 REHAB TELETHON / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW




Dear KRUSH KREW,
We'd like to thank all of you who came out to the show in person to support us and for making the event a success! It was our seventh year performing at the 22nd Rehab Telethon and was one of our best shows! You could feel the energy! The weather was mild and it was one of the largest crowds that we've had there. As always, we had a blast playing for such an energetic audience and appreciated the "KRUSH ROCKS!" signs that fans made and held up during the show.
Also, thanks to all of you who couldn't be there, but watched us on television. Thanks to fans across the country and around the world who watched and listened to the show via a live simulcast over the internet. Special thanks to all of you who called in to pledge a donation for the telethon. Together we helped raise over $83,235. It's a great cause and we're proud of you!
Chelley Kemper from Mix 106.1 FM radio was there hosting. As always, she was fun to work with, as well as all of the crew from WMFD TV.
See you next time!

2012 38th ANNUAL FIREMAN'S FESTIVAL / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW



Dear KRUSH KREW,
We would like to thank each and everyone of you who came out and braved sweltering temperatures to watch and listen to KRUSH perform at the 38th Annual Fireman's Festival. It was a nice event. We all had a "hot" time and a lot of fun!!!!!! (Felt like walking on the sun)

2012 REHAB TELETHON / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW



Dear KRUSH KREW,
We'd like to thank all of you who came out to the show in person to support us and for making the event a huge success! Also, thanks to all of you who couldn't be there, but watched us on television. Together, we helped to raise over $83,328.
The television station, WMFD-TV, was experiencing difficulties with their audio feed over the air. The audio was out of sync with the video and the video was compromised as well. Because of time constraints, there wasn't time allotted for a sound check for volume level and tone adjustments in between all the acts. The sound company’s front of house techs operating the sound console just tried to adjust things on the run as they went, during the songs while we were performing. We had a guest musician playing guitar along with us on the Beatles song “Eight Days A Week.“ The guys running the sound system during that song inadvertently had his guitar amp channel on the sound console turned up excessively loud to the point where he was drowning out and overpowering everything else in the sound mix feed being sent over the air (because there wasn't a sound check) and all you could hear was him. ( *None of the other songs sounded like that because he wasn't playing on them.) The live sound system inside the mall that the crowd heard was good, not at all like the television broadcast. We apologize for the poor quality of the television sound, but it was out of our control. But, as the saying goes, "the show must go on!" Regardless, we had fun and hope you did too!
Special thanks to all of you who called in to pledge a donation for the telethon. It's a great cause and we're proud of you!
We had fun playing for you! See you next time!
Thanks for watching!

2012 CLEAR FORK RESORT / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REPORT


Dear KRUSH KREW,
Making a rare winter appearance, KRUSH headed over to Butler, Ohio, to the Clear Fork Resort, not to ski, tube, or snow board down the slopes, but to bring the house down with an avalanche of “High Energy” Rock and Roll! Neither the snow or cold weather could stop the band from delivering the “Ultimate Show in 70’s & 80’s Classic Rock. The crowd was rocking and everyone’s been talking! “Had a great time!” “Maximum fun and then some!” “It was Awesome!”
Special thanks to Heidi and all the Clear Fork Resort crew, and to all who braved a cold winter night to come out and support us.
You rock!

Dear KRUSH KREW,
We'd like to thank all of you who came out to the show in person to support us and for making the event a success! It was our fifth year performing at the 20th Rehab Telethon and was one of our best shows! You could feel the energy. In fact, an announcer who was one of the hosts kept commenting, " that's what you call high energy music ! " In spite of the snow storm, it was one of the largest crowds that we've had there. As always, we had a blast playing for such an energetic audience and appreciated the "KRUSH ROCKS!" signs that fans made and held up during the show.
Also, thanks to all of you who couldn't be there, but watched us on television. Special thanks to all of you who called in to pledge a donation for the telethon. Together we helped raise over $72,570. It's a great cause and we're proud of you!

2010 DRAGWAY 42 "5th ANNUAL ROCK AND RACE" / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW 


Dear Krush Krew,
Dragway 42 was a blast! When you mix racers and rockers, cars and guitars, you get total excitement!
Talk about your “hot fun in the summer time.” It was totally amazing!
With scorching hot temperatures in the high 90 degrees, high humidity, threatening thunderstorms, lightning, and torrential downpours throughout the day, it was only fitting that we “rocked you like a hurricane!”
The crowd danced and sang along with us in the rain. It was awesome!
Special thanks to all the crew at Dragway 42 and to everyone who braved the elements to be a part of this special event!
Let’s do this again! (To view archive promo of this event, go to: http://www.dragway42.com/newsarchive/newsarchive2010-23.html)

2009 PORT CLINTON WALLEYE FESTIVAL / KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW


Dear KRUSH KREW,
Even the cold winds blowing off of Lake Erie couldn't cool off the "flaming hot"classic rock that KRUSH was playing at the 2009 Port Clinton Walleye Festival. This event was "HUGE"!

Dear KRUSH KREW,
Making our encore performance for the third year in a row, this private engagement on Friday, November 21st, 2008, was a blast to play! The girls screamed for us just like a scene out of a Beatles movie and we had to sign a lot of autographs for these awesome fans on everything from Styrofoam plates, napkins, to t-shirts! This is one of the most fun gigs that we've ever played!
See you next time!

Dear KRUSH KREW,
We made the trip down I-71 South on Friday, November 14th, 2008, to bring some high energy classic rock and roll to the capital city. The private engagement in Columbus went great! The gig was held in a large ballroom and we performed a high energy set to a jam packed room. Even the "King" of rock and roll, our good friend Elvis, made an appearance on stage with us. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we had a great time!

Dear KRUSH KREW,
We'd like to thank all of you who came out on Saturday October 4th, to the 2008 Holmes County Antique Festival in Millersburg, Ohio, to spend some time with KRUSH! It was so strange though. Everything went so smoothly, it felt as though we had played there a thousand times before. Talk about déjà vu ! It was an absolutely beautiful night for a rock and roll party, in spite of the temperature dropping.The stage was really nice and the sound and light crew did an awesome job! (P.S. Special thanks to Fox's Pizza Den. It was awesome!) See you next time!

2008 BUCYRUS BRATWURST FESTIVAL KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW

Dear KRUSH KREW,
We'd like to thank all of you who came out to the Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival, Friday August 15th, to support KRUSH! It was a beautiful night for an outdoor festival and the sound company's mix was great! The soundman said that we were the first band he's ever heard in the past ten years at the Bucyrus Bratwurst Festival to set off car alarms! They were going off everywhere and needless to say, we are quite proud of that!
It was such an enchanted evening, as right before we played "crazy train", in the distance, you could hear an actual train going by somewhere in the town. How cool is that!
Even love was in the air. We had a "made for YOUTUBE" moment, as there was an actual marriage proposal on the stage during our show.
See you next time!

2008 MISS OHIO FESTIVAL KRUSH CONCERT GIG REVIEW

Dear KRUSH KREW,
We'd like to thank all of you who came out to support us at the Miss Ohio Festival, Saturday June 14th, 2008, downtown on the square in Mansfield, Ohio and for making the event such a success!
After such a torrential downpour the night before, we could not have asked for any better weather on Saturday for an outdoor event. It was an absolutely gorgeous night, perfect for an evening of some high energy classic rock and roll! The sound company was outstanding and afterwards, people commented that it was the best show that they have seen and heard us perform! In addition, one common comment was that there was a lot of energy coming off the stage when we played. We attribute that to you being such awesome fans, because we feed off of your energy and love playing for you!
You rock!

2008 REHAB TELETHON


Dear KRUSH KREW,
We'd like to thank all of you who came out to the show in person to support us and for making the event a success! Also, thanks to all of you who couldn't be there, but watched us on television.
The live sound through the in house sound system was great, but we were later informed that there were audio problems over the air.( you couldn't hear the bass very well and the guitar level and tone was compromised as well.) We apologize for the poor quality of the television sound, but it was out of our control. WMFD-TV was experiencing difficulties with their audio feed over the air. It started two hours before us, with the act that was on, and the problems continued throughout the rest of the evening. But, as the saying goes, "the show must go on!" Regardless, we had fun and hope you did too!
Special thanks to all of you who called in to pledge a donation for the telethon. It's a great cause and we're proud of you!
We had fun playing for you! See you next time!
