The weekend just past marks the official 25th Anniversary of “The Legend.” The song first aired on WTCM Radio at 7:20AM, April 1st, 1987. A lot has happened since then.
From March 31st – April 2, 2012, Legend author and performer Steve Cook and Dogman filmmaker Rich Brauer hit the road on the first leg of a “launch tour,” to introduce fans to a pair of brand new campfire story creations. First stop was Benzonia, MI, within a few miles of where most of the scenes for the Dogman movie were shot. Hardly was the tent set up when a steady stream of fans began flowing in to purchase both the Collector’s Release DVD of the movie Dogman, and the Legend 25th Anniversary CD/DVD Collectors Edition 2-disk set.
The next day, April 1st, Brauer and Cook celebrated the 25th Anniversary of The Legend by making an appearance and signing disk labels at Horizon Books in Traverse City. Again, scores of fans lined up to grab these new releases. The bookstore event was followed by a special sold-out screening of the movie at the historic State Theater in downtown Traverse City.
Act III was on Monday, April 2nd, when the creative duo visited Horizon Books in Cadillac, MI, meeting more fans and signing more DVDs. The launch weekend concluded with a screening of the movie at the Cadillac Five Theater before another sold-out house – the sixth straight sold out performance of the movie in six showings! More events are in the works for this spring and early summer. Check back for details
