So Rhonda, Bob and I took the plunge, making our way down to the ACC to indoctrinate ourselves into the world of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. To say that we were blown away would do poor service to the show. They blew us all away. So much so that we haven’t missed a year since. Even if it is the only concert we see in any given year, we never miss a TSO show. The thing that impressed me most about them was the fact they would throw in little topical snippets, musically speaking, here and there. To me, that is the mark of a killer band. One thing I can say here and now about TSO; they have never failed to impress and entertain.
