I will never get tired of watching this. It is ‘show biz’ to me. And that matters. It’s got a great gimmick. Now do I want to watch ninety minutes of this? Probably not. But it harkens back to a time of Vaudeville or Ed Sullivan–real variety shows. If only I could figure out a gimmick as cool as this.
Of course, the highlight is the totally insane bass solo. I want that guy in my band. I mean any band I could ever imagine in any style of music? I want that guy. He has the attitude. 😀
NB. I got started playing in supper clubs where you’d see a selection of entertainers during an evening and frankly, I think it’s the way to spend an evening out. Now? We stay in and flip through our ‘devices’ and ‘self-curate our entertainment experience’. I now see the wisdom of a great show: a complete evening experience where you got a series of entertainments that were curated with great care, to great a particular effect. Today, I suppose it’s just like how a great DJ chooses a complete set to tell a story. Same difference. Structure is structure.
