Sound: The singers were simply increadible. When they sang 'Silent Night', everyone in the audience was laghing because there is the guy singing and he's just bellowing out the lyrics (the mic was about a foot and a half away from his mouth), there thundering through the arena and he is singing in perfect tune! As for the instruments they used, they had everything from a double bass to a Strat to a little Les Paul shaped ukalele thing. // 10

Perfomance: Everyone in the audience love the show. They had and amazing range of songs to. They played some Christmas and Hanuka songs (one of the singers is Jewish) but they also played some rock songs that had solos! Good ones too. One of my favorite thing about the show was when they drew names from a hat to see what insrument each person would play. It turns out that all of them can play all the five instruments that they had and sing! // 9

Overall Impression: This was in a tour through Canada in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the MTS Center on December 21, 2005. The opener, Kurt Swinghammer was a great guitar player (he did a few solos during the actual concert), but couldn't really sing. He also had this weird song called 'I'll Love You Like A Lesbiean'. Tickets were around $50 and it was difinatly worth it. Before, I was only going because my mom gave me a ticket. I thought that I would hate the show. But to my surprise, they acctually performed some song that resembled songs from the classic rock era! This was a great concert. // 9
