Thoroughly enjoyed! Excellent performance! Awesome. Highly recommend if they should tour to LB area again. Great sounds, colors, stories told through drumming. Right up my alley! Thanks to GSE for providing info/tickets.

What a fabulous event! We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this production. Performances, staging, costumes ... program explanation of each of the compositions! I hope they will return - and that they will do more advertising. What a shame that...continued

Interesting but way too much drums and percussiono for me. It would have been nice to have had a break with maybe a song or a dance here the there... Bring your earplugs!
