WHAT THEY'RE SAYING...
"One of the things I appreciate about this group is their musicianship and versatility, which was particularly showcased by the keyboard player, named Michael Boguski. To open the concert, he did some handy boogie-woogie-style piano — but where he really was impressive, to me, was when the band did the song "Diamond Mine". There were elements of jazz and rock seamlessly woven together (the third guitarist dude was pretty good on this song too, Colin Cripps), and Boguski was just … pure genius. I honestly don't think that term over-states it; the guy just blew me away with his versatility and talent..."
"'One More Night' was an early highlight, delivered in a cosmic cosmo cowboy way that allowed interplay between all of the sensational players, and a solos from added guitarist Colin Cripps and keyboardist Michael Boguski - who was a fabulous focal point for much of the evening - adding an extra energy to yet another warm, winter blanket."
