    We had MANY a fun night at Grammas dancing to The Max! Shadows in the Shade, baby! We were even known to make the drive to the Cat’s Paw just to catch more of them. Those were the best days! SO glad to see you are all still around, and you can bet I’ll watch to see where I can catch you all again!

    Had some amazing and outrages times with Kyle, John and Eddie along with Brad in the Box. Casper, Gillette, Bozeman, Spearfish and Rapid City! Some of the best times of my life, especially Casper 86-88. What great chinese we would have after the shows! Rock on

    Looking for a band or DJ for the Saturday before Halloween. We host an annual Halloween party. This year’s theme is “Haunted Prom Night,” with a 70’s motif. Interested?

    Always a great time with The Max. Consistently rocking out hit after hit that will keep your feet moving and the dance floor packed. Do yourself a favor and check ’em out. Guaranteed to play one of your favorite tunes.

    Hello. I am inquiring about the possibility of your band coming to Glasgow to play on August 5th for our Rock the Block celebration. What would you require to come to Glasgow?
    Thank you for your time & I look forward to hearing from you!

    Kyle Brenner stole my underwear and I have never forgiven him…I named my son after this juvinile fool and he has never offered new shorts to me. I would love to hear from any brother named Brenner. My cell is 641-257-8487 my name is Rich Redding.

    These guys were great! They were playing at Chico Hot Springs and I was visiting from out of town — everyone was up dancing and having a great time. I will look them up next time I’m in Montana!

    Totally worth the time any money! They put on one hell of a show and are sure to pack to dance floor!
