Rough but entertaining concert by a fine group of musicians who approximate the Byrds sound better than most, especially in the instrumental aspect. The vocals are less successful, but that has more to do with the different types of voices than the arrangements, which are quite similar. I've often wondered what goes through the minds of musicians of a tribute band? How do they feel about imitating another group? How much of their own musical personalities can they put into the songs without altering the imitation? I can't help feeling that this kind of band must be a real labor of love, a selfless act of admiration. There can't be much money in it, judging from the amount of applause, yet a lot of time and effort went into getting the songs as right as they could be. And not only are there the usual popular songs, but also some unusual ones, like Crosby's Everybody's Been Burned, one of my very favorite Byrds songs. Sorry to hear that the man who put this group together has died--he was too young to go. There's always something tragic associated with the Byrds. Thanks for a nice concert and a worthy tribute.
