    WOW!!! There is so much talent on that stage, it is incredible. Obviously Victor, but once you get passed his mind-blowing solos, you realize how talented everyone else is. Jeff Coffin is one of the best horn players I have ever seen, and there is no category for Futureman, he is incredible. And Bela is so emotional and at times humorous in his playing. I got a chance to meet them all after the show and get some autographs, and a quick pic with Vic. Overall, it was one of the best musical experiences of my life. If u get a chance, check them out.

    I actually have seen them on tv. I had high expectations for the live gig and I was not underwhelmed.

    Saw them last night at the State Theater in Easton PA.:eek:

    Victor did two amazing solo pieces; one in each set. I was just sitting there shaking my head. I wanted to quit playing right then and there since it is obviously a futile effort!!! :(

    Great work by Bela and the others too. However, you could tell Vic was the star. There were more young bassists in the audience than anything else.

    As expected, they all came back out to the fans about 20 minutes after the show and hung out for a long time.

    GO SEE THEM!!!
