Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a tiny band of synthesizer-playing women in Renaissance-themed costumes and drum-kit playing men in white suits crawled out of the speakers at the mall and began to play jazzy versions of Handel’s Messiah,Â inspiring middle-aged women to compliment one another on their Christmas sweaters? Or are you more the type to wonder what it would be like if Thomas Kinkaide’s artwork went through the video toaster before being projectedÂ at aÂ stadium concert? If you’ve ever had these questions, or if you simply enjoy wizardry, Gaelic spellings (e.g. “Faeries”) and being more relaxed than you ever thought you could be in a huge sports stadium, IÂ stronglyÂ recommend seeingÂ Mannheim Steamroller next year at Arco Arena.Â We went last night.Â I don’t think I need to say much more except there is really very little I won’t do to please my in-laws.

I’ve never bee to Arco Arena where whispering could get you shushed, and yet- thunderous applause during the third encore!?
Yes. And I did say:
I went to that show three years ago with my mom and one of her friends — they had an extra ticket, but I made up an excuse for my then-boyfriend-now-husband, so he missed out on being greeted by someone who looked eerily like our mailman dressed as a gingerbread man.
The crowd was very similar to the one when I took my MIL to see Josh Groban.
One of the best answers/questions ever in Jeopardy!’s “Before and After” category was “Who is ‘Camryn Mannheim Steamroller’?”
The gingerbread men were there also! Let’s just say I’m pretty sure everyone was getting down at hearth’s edge later that night.
