"Shine On" Boys and Girls. Great Band to end the parade
Wasn't that fun? I especially liked the comments about LVW being a "crowd pleaser" and that we have "fun", and at the same time have a quality band with lots of precision. Being both entertaining to the audience AND technically awesome is a goal for LVW. Having fun while being great - can it get any better?
