We have some very exciting news! It looks like the Bret Michaels band will be in Cedar Rapids a day before their gig on Friday night. They didn't want to just chill in their swanky hotel all night, so we found them a gig!

That's right, join 94.1 KRNA this Thursday, September 14th, for the OFFICIAL BRET MICHALES PRE-PARTY! It's happening from 9-11 p.m., at Tailgators on Center Point Road in Cedar Rapids.

I should let everyone know, Bret will not be at the pre-party. He has an obligation, but his entire band will be on hand to play an acoustic show that night at Tailgators.

Come see Pete Evick, Mike Baily, Eric Brittingham, Rob Jozwiak and other very special guests. I You never know, I may even get up and sing a song! Okay, maybe not.

You may remember Eric's name from his time with the band Cinderella. I was fortunate enough to hang out with him the last time he was in Cedar Rapids. This dude is great, he's the life of the party!
