    this was my first time seeing king sunshine - or any other live house band for that matter - and i was really impressed! it was so neat to see the house sound that i know and love being created by live instruments right before my eyes. it gave the music a more human touch...it gave the music SOUL!!!

    and damn, kenny bobien has an amazing voice - perfect for house music! he could hit these super-high notes...i thought it was a female vocalist at first. he's definitely got SOUL - very entertaining!

    there were a couple other djs spinning, as well, but i never really got into their sets - they just couldn't compete with the live music......nor could they compete with the wikked visuals that drew my eyes for the majority of the night!

    congratulations to the DGR crew - headwinds, andrew, marc and ian ( www.deepgreenrobots.com ) - on a successful debut. they provided the evening's eye-candy. the images were colourful, SOULFUL, inspiring...they gave the venue the atmosphere it needed to support the classy, deep house vibe. i hope to see their work again sometime soon!

    on a whole, i had a good night! it was nice to see something different - a welcome change from the kinds of events that i usually go to.

    I wasn't at this event, although I would have loved to have been there. I have seen King Sunshine a couple of times before and I think they are great.

    Somehow, watching them create house music gives it a different feeling than listening to the music on decks. I love watching them create something. And although I love DJs, I must say that nothing compares to a live ensemble.

    Glad you enjoyed the show J-Hi. Pretty cool, eh? [​IMG]

    I have seen King Sunshine before at B-Side, and they are a fabulous array of live house.

    I'm glad you had a good time. Live house rocks.
