"With Neal McCoy's high energy performances and amazing audience connection, it is no wonder that he was twice voted Entertainer of the Year. If you've been unable to see McCoy in concert, then this DVD project is the next best thing to being there. He feeds off his audience like no other performer I've ever seen. And this project gives a small idea of just how he does this. The Hodag Country Music Festival in Rhinelander, Wisconsin was the venue Groovpix Entertainment chose to film the project. Groovpix, along with McCoy's own 903 Music label, is marketing the DVD.
Neal has been performing at the Hodag Festival for the past 15 years. He started as the opening afternoon performer and now has been headlining the event for the last several years. The crowd that packs in to see his show is amazing. They come to be entertained and they absolutely don't leave disappointed. Along with the 12 song set that night, the DVD also contains some bonus footage. In between the songs, it flashes to Neal talking about life on the road and different experiences they have. The bonus features that can be accessed are a backstage pass to the sound check, Neal meeting and talking with fans, Neal sitting down and talking about some of the people who have influenced his career as well as a short commentary from his good friend General Tommy Franks. Neal is very active with doing USO tours and he talks about his feelings on that as well.
While you watch the show, it is easy to see why Neal has such a loyal fan base. He acknowledges the people at his shows. He talks to them, he listens to them and he shows off what they bring to give him. He puts on the hats and tries on the cool little beer can goggles that people make. He points out the different signs that are waving. During one song he sees two little girls who are waving at him in front of the stage. He reached down and brought them onstage for a hug and a quick photo before carefully handing them back down to their parents. He is also very theatrical in his shows. He moves around the stage constantly, dancing with the guys in the band, or even himself at times. And he never goes into a show with a set list. You will always hear certain songs like "Shake" and "No Doubt About It," but he covers things from different musical genres like "The Boys Are Back In Town" and other classic rock or big band era music. For this show, he is promoting his latest album so he sings "Billy's Got His Beer Goggles On," "You Let Me Be the Hero" and "Tailgate." You will always hear the fan favorite "Hillbilly Rap" and it definitely gets the crowd moving. One of the things Neal is famous for is climbing things while he is onstage. This show was no exception. He crawled way up into the rafters and was looking out over the crowd while singing this song. He also exchanges his cowboy hat for a baseball hat turned sideways. The song he uses to close his shows is another fan favorite, but also one that is very special to Neal. It is how he feels about his fans and you can hear the emotion in his voice as he sings "I'm Your Biggest Fan." He leaves the stage to the roars of an appreciative crowd."
Neal sets the stage on FIRE!!!!!!!

"I just received my Neal McCoy Live DVD!!! Watched it last nite and it is awesome!
Any Neal Fans this is a must!!! Anyone that has seen Neal do a live concert you will love this. Neal knows how to work the crowd from the time he walks on the stage til the time he leaves!!!! At one point in the video Neal climbed to the top of the stage and stood on speakers and did his show from there!
I higher recommend everyone to get this and if you have never been to a Neal concert you are in for the thrill of your life watching him on stage and interacting with the crowd!!!!! Love the breeders gloves that everyone had blown up in the crowd
For those of you that were at the Hodag 2005 you might just see yourselves Cause there is alot of the crowd on this!
