Default Just saw Bermuda and Weird Al!!

I had the pleasure of seeing Weird Al at the Spokane Fair last night. Wow, what a great show he puts on!! I knew his songs were funny, but his band is incredible! He's a natural showman and a great entertainer. And of course, Bermuda rocked the house! I can say, without exaggerating, that it was the most fun I've had at a concert in years!

The whole band did an acapella section in a song during the encore that absolutely blew my mind. Not only can they all play, they can SING. And the sound was awesome, true, clean stereo. (I sat right behind the FOH board, so that helped.)

Fantastic show!

Oh, and Bermuda, my wife said her favorite part was the "Drum Solo, Reprise." Outstanding!

Thanks! We've been out less than a week and have already found our groove with this new show after some time off. For those who are interested, this tour's show will be out on DVD/Blu-Ray October 4, it looks and sounds great! This and the live DVD from 1999 were the only times I really get to see & hear what we do, which is obviously quite different from where I normally sit!

We saw Weird Al in Houston in 2007. It was great show, and we all enjoyed it quite a bit. Peace and goodwill.

Wow!! I'm impressed you've only been doing this show a week. It was very tight and polished. Can't wait for the DVD!
