    I had the opportunity to see them live this past Saturday evening in Branson Mo. They were pretty amazing, a lot of sound for only 14 people and the middle video that was played in conjuction with their music was definately worth the price of admission.

    Have any others had the opportunity to see them?

    I like their music, but have never seen them in concert. Their Christmas music is FAB!

    They are very loud. My wife and I set on the third row in the middle. If we have the opportunity to see them again I'll probably get ear plugs :laugh: . One of the things that impressed me the most was that they truly enjoyed performing, they did not talk but their actions declared their love for what they were doing. Their lead violinist was pretty incredible.

    I like Mannheim, but haven't been able to see them in person.

    Any concert is loud, so I carry tissue to make earplugs. I'm losing enough hearing as it is, happens when we get "younger"! :laugh:

    Thanks for the site...

    The song that plays when you open the web sight is the first or second song played after the intermission and is accompanied with a video that is truly awe inspiring. The castle gates are opened and a horse and rider take off at a full gallop that ends up taking you up close and around the world in the next 3-5 minutes. For my wife and I it was truly the highlight of the evening almost anit-climatic to the ending.

    Here is where we saw the program for anyone going near Branson during the Christmas season.

    Does seeing a steamroller in Manheim, Germany count?

    didn't think so, sorry.
