'We're a pretty good band ' said lead singer Steve Harwell. That's true, but these type of bands with only 2 or 3 really well known songs have a problem sustaining an hour and half show. They want to play their own songs but the audience only responds to well known songs. Case in point, when the 5 piece band played the Kinks 'You Really Got Me' , the audience finally started to warm up. It was too late to save the show. The venue was against the band - zero atmosphere and the band a long way from the crowd separated by fences!. Any band would have struggled. Only Walking on the Sun, the Kinks song, the Monkees - I'm a Believer and the final All Star songs got the show going. Then it was over.

Pity, as the bound are good and worthy of more enthusiasm. Only for real fans though.
