Deidre and Pam, the grand prize winners in the Bret Michaels’ “Big Doings” Jammin’ With Friends contest were kind enough to share their thoughts about the awesome time they had at the Bret Michaels concert where they became true VIP. Check our their story below… 

When my morning began with a call from Bret Michaels, I didn’t think my day could get any better. Little did I know that was just the start of a most amazing and memorable day! I still couldn’t believe that I was the “Big Doings” contest winner. Even if I could wrap my head around this phenomenal luck, nothing could have prepared me for my VIP experience.

It began with being whisked away to Blue Chip Casino where Patrick Edwards gave me a behind-the-scenes tour of the venue, introduced me to members of the MEGI team and treated me to Giordano’s pizza. Just before the start of the show, Patrick escorted me to Bret’s bus. Bret greeted me with a big smile and a roaring fire! He sang “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” with his whole heart and soul. I tried to savor every moment. It is hard to put into words how I felt. It was a whirlwind of intense emotions, happiness, gratitude, awe and admiration. He signed his guitar and handed it to me. Then, I had to hurry to my front-row seat to enjoy the show. Of course, the concert was spectacular! Bret really rocked a sold-out show! His passion, excitement and energy was incredible and contagious.

After the concert I got to do the meet and greet. I was so excited and I forgot to have a picture taken with the guitar and Bret. By far though, the best part of my night was being driven with Bret on his personal RV. In addition to being an incredibly talented musician, he is a most generous, kind and caring person. He made me feel like I was the only person who mattered. He is one of the most genuine, real people you will ever meet. I am so ecstatic I got to experience the “Big Doings” up close and personal. I will treasure my experience always.

Thank you Bret, from the bottom of my heart.
