Former Hericane Alice (Hurricane Alice) guitarist Leni DiMancari posted the following on his myspace page:

“No, Im not playing with them in Sturgis. Bruce has put together the “Tear the House Down” band back together…sort of. We chatted about the reunion with the original lineup, but It looks more like an all star jam towards the end of the year. If I do it, I will let everyone know so you can come see the band on stage together again after 20 years, if it happens. I said Hey, You, Whatcha wanna do? I wanna Rock you all night…In the meantime…On the Bad Animal Planet..

The Bad Animals, The band that I love playing with every time we step on stage, in a studio, in rehearsal and hanging with Will be performing at the Miesville Firemans Hogroast and Street Dance (Originally it was called Cannon Falls Riverfest, then Hogfest..) this saturday night on the green (Thats outdoors). Thats going to be a blast. All ages, bring the kids and Keep the Love Alive. Beer, soda, food, fun, and Kevin is running us that night so the sound will be incredible, because Kevin Todd rocks and the Rock Brigade opens the show. Should be a blast.”
