Sound: Orson are a great band! Lead singer Jason Pebworth (who wrote all the songs by the way) has an amazing voice, which I think, is much better in real life than on the CDs. There were no problems with the skills of the guitarists George Astasio and Kevin Roentgen, bass player Johnny Lonely or drummer Chris Cano. Their music is upbeat, happy and basically it rocks! Something really needed to be done about the sound quality though. It was hard hearing Jason's lovely voice at times and during one song, his high pitched singing almost burst everyone's ear drums! It was almost impossible to listen to! I would personally blame the venue though as I have had this problem before with other concerts. Despite that, I would defiantly recommend this band! // 6

Perfomance: The audience seemed to love it, all ages were singing and dancing along to their songs! They played many of their songs from their first album "Bright Idea" including their number one hit single "No Tomorrow" Other singles played included "Bright Idea" and "Happiness." A song I found particularly good was "Look Around" in which Jason played the keyboard as he sung. I sat on the balcony and you really get a great view from up there! The lights reflected Jason's huge shadow onto the walls, which just looked amazing, though at times, I'm sure the light could have given you and epileptic fit as they were so bright and flashy! // 7

Overall Impression: Orson performed at Southampton guildhall in England on Friday 27th October 2006. The doors opened at 7.00 and the band Bliss opened the show. They consisted of two boys and a girl but were rather disappointing. It seemed the lead singer wanted to play every instrument and their songs were not very memorable. This was quite boring but once Orson were on it was great! The tickets cost 15.00 and I would say it was worth the money! The performance was unforgettable (and of course so was his hat). If they come back to Southampton, I would love to see them again! // 8
