GMan Memphis ,

Flow

Flow is one of the main reasons to listen to this band.

Jenny Jerry Jerry ,

Pretty good

Pretty good - lacking in actual musicians. Many cringes when they try and talk technically about the music - they will say “stage right” when in fact they mean stage left. Stop using the word “modulate” you don’t know what it means. Talk about the crowd experience and such is fine but please stop talking about musical specifics unless you bring in a musician to comment

yanks phan ,

Great recap

Awesome job guys
