CherryGun, Pierre & Watertown, SD

Late January of 2016 provided a big week for Minneapolis group CherryGun. Drummer Cody Coppess lead the band back to his hometown of Pierre, South Dakota for a "monumental" appearance at Mount Rushmore's 75th birthday party during the Governor's Conference on Tourism. They capped off the week with a two-night stand at the Dakota Sioux Casino in Watertown, South Dakota.

"Be Monumental" was the theme for the Tourism Conference and seemed appropriate for CherryGun's showcase in front of the tourism industry. Everyone was raving about the band's talent and inquiring about booking them into their towns and festivals. Thanks goes out to the Mount Rushmore Society for hiring the evening's entertainment.

As the band moved on to the Watertown gigs, lead singer Amy M realized she was getting sick. Despite a rough couple nights and almost losing her voice entirely before the second show, she put in a great performance.
