Here's my concert review with pics (videos may come up). It's entitled Let This Be Known To The World, For I Said No To Dweezil.

You are gonna get in trouble again. Did you intentionally fashion the title so that it appears Dweezil hit you up for a romp in the hay? I don't think so, doesn't seem your style.

If you knew me, you'd know I had a Dweezil celeb crush for years, but I've cured since. It's funny to me in that regard. Besides, it was my five seconds of fame.
Anyway, yes he did ask me to dance on stage at BeBop Tango, and considering he wanted two guys to do a sort of mating dance and the women responding to that, the theme prevails. I have a record of the mating dance, not too good quality, but I met someone who filmed the show and I'm sure bits will eventually pop up on YT.
Ben Thomas did film sections too and made a photo of the hall. He definitely made a film of the encore guest star Richard Hollebeek (not sure if that's really his name).

I'm on one of them. :) That is, my arms can be seen on it (was over at Scheila's side near the fan right in front of the stage). And I think I've seen you, but you don't show up in my pics, sorry.

Your photos are great! What camera were you using?

no problem, great you like my photos, the camera is my mobile phone, a galaxy s4 mini (made about 540 pic's, this are the best, this is the great thing about electronic cameras, take a lot of pictures, you will have a few good ones)

Your photos are better than pretty much every single one I made. Except for the one I made of the fan blocking my view, that one worked out. :) You're like me in that sense, I do get trigger happy once I get my camera out. :mrgreen:

No idea, I love him. Good singer and cutesiewootsie. (I never thought I'd use that word on this forum.) But there have been multiple people here saying Ben's run his course.

Seems fine to me. Hoping to hear some conflicting opinions.

Some people like Obama. Some don't.

Ben's fine. He's got the right range for the songs, a good sense of humor in his singing, and as a bonus he now plays trumpet trombone and guitar during the shows. Short of going the alumni route he's about as good as you'll get.

Poor Ben! I can just imagine him getting teased by the rest of the band now.

I'm in the "I like Ben" camp. Thought he was great when I saw them last visit to Baltimore. Let me clarify: I enjoyed him in concert, but it's not like I listen to any ZPZ at home or in the car or anything!

Reading this it dawned on me that I have never heard Ben sing...

I think the guy does a fine job. He is solid. I am like you ... I cant listen to ZPZ anywhere else except live. I'll put on the real deal if I want to hear the music otherwise.
