A Day in the Life
by Doug and Christine Cochran, HearYou Music
Over the weekend, Electric Cat Studios treated Christine and I to The Fab Four concert (Midland Theater, Kansas City). The lads put on a ‘really good shoe’… awesome show. I actually felt teleported to another era.
Their costume and stage presence is wholly in character and convincing. Each of the performers was spectacular in their role. I was particularly impressed with Gavin Pring (George). During the middle of a song, a string broke… just before a lead section. Without skipping a beat, he hummed it for a bar then spun and switched guitars. With magnificent guitarmanship, the guitar was swung up on his knee and, on one leg, he finished the lead.
Music was fabulous. A Day in the Life brought a rousing standing ovation in the packed venue. A medley of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Something in the Way, and Here Comes the Sun was jaw-dropping good. There were a couple of songs I was disappointed with such as Yesterday, but hey I say… this is live, and totally freaking awesome.
Oh, the Ed Sullivan guy (George Trullinger), had me rolling. Great act.
On a side note, the KC Streetcar is A+. Park at Union Station and ride to the entertainment.
