Ribfest is this weekend and Survivor is set to make a return performance at Kalamazoo Ribfest.   Remember when they played Ribfest back in 2008?

One of the earliest Ribfest that I can remember that I was a part of, other than my very first Ribfest in 2005.  That year featured Micky Dolenz of The Monkees.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find any footage of that show.

I remember the 2008 Ribfest with Survivor as I was doing a live broadcast just before their performance.  I was also the one who introduced the band before their set.

It was interesting because their manager gave me a typed up script to read.  He was constantly telling me what I needed to say about the band.  Even after sticking to the script  he was still telling me what I should have said.

The band at that time did not feature either of their known singers, Dave Bickler or Jimi Jamison.   The singer at that time was Robin McAuley, who was known for his work with McAuley-Schenker Group.

They played through their hits including the iconic, “Eye of The Tiger”.

Any memories of the 2008 Ribfest?  Any highlights of this performance that you remember?
