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!
