In 2007, Mellencougar, a Tribute to John Mellencamp began with a group of radio guys talking about playing John's music live. We had all seen John "Cougar" Mellencamp and his awesome band many times and even got to meet him backstage in Milwaukee, WI. Shortly after we began, Don got a call from Toby Myers to play his birthday and it made for a very memorable show. Toby Myers and Moe Z M.D. both joined the band for that show and several after that!
In the picture below you will see the inside of Toby's stage/studio located inside his barn.
