An email review from one of Moogy's  last gigs
        Moogy, wow, I  really meant it, you guys were stupendous the other 
nite!  Way better than  I ever thought it was gonna be though of course I knew 
it would still be  great.  I'd give you guys an A plus and you know me already, 
pretty candid  when it comes to music!   
What I noticed mostly though at first, my first impression was that  you guys 
could have played this gig with your eyes closed and your hands tied  behind 
your backs!  Just seemless and flawless-effortless! very  cool.

I was soooo glad you just kicked the crap atta the piano rather  than layin 
back!  That was so cool and I looked over at Ito and saw he was  getting a kick 
out of it too!  You sounded just great, really!  I was  also thinking, where 
else can you see a rock show where the keyboardist is  playing on a grand 
piano!  Wow, how rare is that nowadays! As always though  you inspire me with your 

The singing was awesome and in this  band context I really saw how your voice 
is really best in that kind of  "rocked-out" setting. Talk about tight! 
yikes!  The drumming, Denny is  so strong and don't know if it's just your band but 
he had this folk-rock  shuffle thing going and his arm movements reminded me 
a bit of Max Weinberg with  that swing-style Louis Bellison thing happening!  

I also really  enjoyed your MC bits.  Funny and a real showman!  Oh yeah, and 
at the  end, that ballad you played and sang, was so touching and poignant, 
and I could  feel this really nice vibe in the audience.  We could tell you 
sang your  heart out!

So das da scoop!
Hope I get to see you guys play again  sometime!

Later,  David
