"Rock & Soul music is very important to a lot of people. Of course it's entertainment and is fun, but the personal connection that people have to timeless songs is very intense - that's what makes it timeless! Much of the fun in what we do is seeing people singing along, pumping their fists, or just smiling from ear to ear when we launch into a song that has that personal connection for them, or evokes a great memory - whether it was last week, last summer, or years ago. The magic moments are when a whole audience connects to a song and you can tell we're all connecting to a special time in our lives."
