      It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

              In the past, when I gigged a rack of synths, at Halloween parties I would dial up a giant pipe organ patch, play the notorious opening few bars of the Tocatta and slide into Monster Mash ( sung hilariously badly by the former bass player), and finish it with "Vellcome to za Hotel Trrron-zilll-waaaaay-nyuhhhh".

              It was always a big hit, fat tip jar.

                  I think maybe you've just crossed the line.

                          My favorite part of the show was when Lawrence got into the polka mode - it was as if someone put lit sparklers in his pants. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdhlJI8jaAs

                          The show seems funny now, but those guys were all good musicians. Where else can an accordionist get a steady job?

                            No mistaking that Hammond sound in the last clip...

                            Back to the Phantom - any other of you "foreigners" of which I am one, ever had the priveledge to see the Phantom of the Opera at the Queens theater in London? I was lucky enough to see it with Sarah Brightman singing the lead role - just brilliant, even if I cannot remember the orchestra or the actor in the Phantom role. It was around 1987 or thereabouts, I think. I do remember what I had to fork out for a ticket though - a small fortune!! . And worth every cent (penny).

                              I saw it in the early 1990s, but no Sarah Brightman... however, I had the honour to sing the parts of Christine some time later in an amateur performance. And I couldn't resist playing some of the music on the church pipe organ, but I had asked the pastor beforehand if I was allowed to do so and he said, yes, I could practice, but please not play the pieces during service
