HOYT SHERMAN SHOW
This show was amazing! The musicians and artists are incredible. The range of their voices and the creativity they use with making this music a truly new song is phenomenal. Don't hesitate to purchase tickets now or in the future. It is SO worth every penny. And Hoyt Sherman is such a fabulous venue!

I really enjoyed last nights performance at Count Basie. I especially enjoyed the two singing sisters whom I hadn’t heard before. They each had strong and unique singing voices, and at times it was like witnessing one of the TV singing competition shows. Entertaining and well done to all!

WATCH SOME VIDEOS BEFORE YOU GO
This show is not for everybody, just those who like incredibly talented live vocalists backed by a band with horns, electric guitar, drums, and of course, piano. "Tambourine Guy" was a welcomed addition, since I have seen his excited puppy-like energy in most of the videos online. Scott Bradlee was not on piano and the line-up was not exactly as advertised, but it was very good and wildly entertaining. Michael Cunio was the MC and while he can scream like a Jack Black-fronted rock band, he can deliver at all levels. I am thoroughly surprised he is not touring with Queen, since he can do a solid Freddie Mercury, which is not easy. I apologize for not having their names here, but the expected sirens of song lit up the stage and other male guests appeared from recent talent contests, which is to be expected with a touring company. The tap dancing was fun and adds a quirky energy that keeps the show light and entertaining. A Morgan James video introduced me to PMJ, so I came to see the sirens or torchlight songs, but did not expect the live show to be exactly like the videos anyway. I brought three guests who had no idea what they were getting into. They were blown away and are now advocates for PMJ. Keep them coming (and see if you can get Morgan to tour next year!).

TOP LEVEL, PROFESSIONAL, AMAZING VOICES, AND TAP DANCING TO BOOT !
What a fantastic show. The band was very connected and right on with the tunes. From Lady Gaga, Buggles, Isley brothers, and . All the tunes were jazzed up 20's style. Admittingly being a fan of PMJ helps, but for a noob this is an excellent introduction of an up and coming band that will blow your socks off. The lead singers had spectacular voices. The only thing that takes it away is the screaming of some of the high notes by the MC. Morgan James would have given it 6 stars - lol. A must see !!!

Terrific show . With over 300 musicians and singers that are part of the PMJ family you have no idea who is going to turn up. They were really well represented and I'm looking forward to their next Toronto visit.

GREAT FOR FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT. FUN SHOW
Enjoyed the FIndlay Marathon Center of the Performing Arts show . The energy was strong and cast impressive. Overall the audience had fun with the cast. Matt Scheil and his tap dancing was impressive and a joy to witness from our 2nd row seating. I will agree with another review that it was loud, and at times lyrics were hard to make out- wasn't sure if it was the venues' acoustics or the sound "man". I don't agree Rogelio was "screaming" though,- a little fine tuning may be necessary , but we enjoyed the energy and musicianship. The vocals were fabulous. Someone stated endings were "predictable" , we enjoyed the vocalists sharing their amazing vocal range- we enjoyed the show.

CRUISE SHIP VARIETY SHOW IS NOT MY THING!
No doubt about it PMJ live at Massey Hall was made up of a group of mostly very talented artists. That being said the show was tough to get through at times. Way too much tap dancing for my taste! One solo and we're good. I appreciate the talent but not when i have to sit through it for so many numbers instead of what i went to see....music. The MC was a real downer for me. He is not a good match for the PMJ brand in my opinion. His style was not in keeping with the theme and his banter was hard to listen to at times, sometimes cheesy and most times out of synch with the show. Take it a step further and I have to say the MC's voice was way too far over the top for me. Screaming high notes that make gospel singers sound timid. Sorry but he brought the show down 2 stats. I cringed whenever he came on stage. Am I a Creep? Nope, just being honest.
