Where Entertainment Production and Design People Meet!

I'm a member of IATSE Local 346, Lexington, KY. Yesterday I had the pleasure of working both the load in and out for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra here at our arena. I have to comment on how well the day went. Their crew is great. A hard working, well organized, friendly bunch of guys who really know their stuff. Truly a pleasure to work with. Their rig is massive, as usual. But we still got all 19 trucks loaded in under three hours. And of course they put on a terrific show too. Lazers, pyro, syncrolites and all.

Well you cant go wrong with christmas music and I agree with you dean about how its like a christmas present to yourself. and also they do up to three shows a day I think dean. I have turned on about half of the tech people I know into going to that show and they are all blown away with the production music not so much but still I like some of the music

TSO is an event that 90% of the production people I know attend every year, like a Christmas present to yourself. Its almost like an annual production Mecca retreat for a very reasonable price.
As it is a technical masterpiece, walking out at half time is a big mistake as this show hits its technical climax 3rd & 4th quarter. Musically, this act as always billed themselves as a progressive rock band. Though it's not for everybody, the demographic at this show is always M/F 8-80 which always amazes me. They must be doing something right. 2 legs going at the same time. Many double shows at each venue, Packed houses every show. Many accomplished musicians perform on both legs of this tour including metal icons, classicly trained players, even Broadway musicians. I'm not the biggest Prog Rock fan in the world but I certainly respect talent when I see it whatever the genre. It is definatly not garbage and the work on the arrangements is evident. This has never been billed as The Boston Pops. TSO is excess. Its big, its bad, it kicks ass!!!! Next year I'm taking my Grandma.......She'll love it

The first time I saw TSO it was from an audience members standpoint. I walked out at intermission and happily did not return. While a technical masterpiece as a musical performance is was dismal. It offends me to think that the public eat this kind of garbage up. This is the orchestral equivilant of a kid with absolutley no musical talent using a computer to create noises that someone actually considers to be music. These are the folks who win Grammys in today's no talent entertainment world. If you enjoy well produced quality music pass on these TSO.

19 sounds like they downsized from last year last year I heard they had 28 or something among those lines
