    Took in a performance of Cirque de Soleil's Zumanity in Vegas on Sunday night. Incredible performance of acrobatics, humor and great music. The band is elevated above the stage with the drummer on a separate balconey and the bassist on his own little stage below the drummer. This particular Cirque's theme is sexuality, so there was lots and lots (and lots) of nudity. About 15 minutes into this assault of lights and sound and imagery, my wife leans over and asks me why I was staring off into the rafters. I told her I was trying to check out the Alembic (an Excel I believe) that the bassist was using...she just rolled her eyes, shook her head and gave my leg a pat.

    You should have asked your wife why she was staring at the keyboard player's organ.

    Awesome show...I always like to see live musicians instead of anything canned. Don't know who the bassist is, but great chops!

    Curiously, my wife wants me to book tickets to Crazy Horse in Paris when we're going later this spring. I will have to collect my eyeballs off the floor before we leave.

    I would only be concerned if the bassist was playing in the nude with the bass riding high so that you could see his "Alembic"...

    Fear not Ozon! I too would have to figure out what the guy's bass and rig were before I could concentrate on boobs. But once I did...... My wife would be elbowing me for other reasons.

    My wife's friend works for Peepshow at the Hard Rock in Vegas. We usually go see him and get comped for the show. Got to see Holly Madison a couple times and numerous other beauties. Great music and show, but no live band. Only time I ever get permission to stare at half naked women and my wife finds the look on my face funny.
