Trans-Siberian Orchestra

I love this band. They are absolutely awesome. I have to see them every year at Christmas and have traveled each and every time as they haven’t come to Pensacola. UNTIL yesterday!! Last night, they played their rock opera called Beethoven’s Last Night at the Pensacola Civic Center.  I was there. On the floor, Row 3, Seat 1. The story is very moving and has a wonderful theme.  I’ve posted a youtube video of one of the songs- this is a video recorded by a member of a yahoo group I’m in dedicated to this band.  And for today only, at Amazon, you can get the MP3 album and the digital booklet (that has the story in it) for only $2.99 rather than the regular $8.99.  I really recommend it- Heck, I paid full price when it came out in 2000 of like $14.99.

As a huge fan of Al Pitrelli and his abilities, I would love to interview him someday for background for one of my novels.  He’s an inspiring musician and has an adorable personality.


  1. (from a fellow d-grouper) So glad they finally came right to your doorstep! You chose to feature my favorite BLN track, isn’t Rob amazing!?! Glad you enjoyed the show!

    • Thanks for popping in. I would give you better credit for the video if I knew the real name of the guy that did it! LOL! He did an awesome job on this video. I love, love, love TSO and was so elated when they came to my town finally. The first time I saw them was in New Orleans at the Saenger and there were less than 1000 people there. I’ve loved to watch them grow!

  2. It was great fun seeing them. They are amazingly talented on so mnay levels. it was a treat to see them.
