THE BOTTLE ROCKETS LIVE-MARK ORTMANN-BEIER 1.5 STEEL SNARE--6.5 X 14~

Had a great time with the Bottle Rockets this last Sunday in Madison, Wisconsin. They were headlining the Marquette Waterfront Festival which is an outstanding summer long string of festivals on Lake Mendota. The band, as always, was in prime form, and put on a great show like have since the beginning. Mark was using his Beier 1.5 Steel Snare--6.5 x 14 for the show, uses it on tour, and also included it on the new record coming out this October. I have some great webcam clips from the show of him playing, and will be posting them within a week.

Thanks Again Mark, and to the entire band. You guys are some of the nicest players out on the road, and you sound nothing short of spectacular.
