Having now seen this band twice in the past year, and hopefully again on Halloween, I can now say I have become a fan of Frank's music. Dweezil and his band do a fantastic job of representing Frank's compositions.
The show it self was fantasic. Highlights for me were 'Pygmy Twylyght' and all of the songs where the effortlessly synched up with audio and video footage of Frank playng and singing along with the band. But to be honest this show is worth it for just 'Pygmy Twylyght.' Dweezil absolutly does an amazing job with his solo for this, lasting nearly seven minutes. He would have made his dad proud.
The band played on a slowly rotating stage which is referenced a few times during the show. Thankfully there were speakers placed all around the top of the stage and my mics were pointed almost directly at them. The recording turned out great, perhaps my best ever. The crowd was very quiet and cooperative around me. A few drunkards can be heard in between songs from other areas of the theatre, but they do not ruin this recording in any way.
Enjoy the show!
