Thanks for the mention of the Grascals playing at Scholz Wednesday night [“Grascals' Garten Party
,” Earache! Music blog, May 11]. Craig Calvert and I have been friends for many years, and it is very cool that he is recognized for his hard work at booking bands for us. Craig and I had been plotting for years to bring music back to Scholz. It is Craig's guidance, tenacity, and patience with us (me) that have enabled us to pull it off. Musicians and fans both have thanked us, which is just icing on the cake. We really did this because we just like it. It almost pays for itself, too.
