I have a great friend, Jared, who has invited me along to many shows and paid my way since I’m a starving artist, usually comedians like Kathy Griffin, Lisa Lamponelli and Stephen Lynch; and once we saw Rachel Maddow. He almost always gets front row tickets, and it’s always a good time. Well this time he went all out, took me to see the Pentatonix, and we got the front row, but also backstage passes, meet-and-greet, and a private performance! Yes I sat in a chair while the Pentatonix stood in front of me, singing right into my face!

I liked them on television and on-line, but wow they are just as great in person. It’s amazing to me that such a full-bodied sound can be produced purely by voices; although there was a little break from that where Kevin showed off his expert cello skills. Just all around amazing, and inspiring. Thanks Pentatonix, and thanks Jared!!
