Sunday afternoon we took the family and my parents to the Erwin Center to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra. We had a lot of fun. The show was truly stunning to eyes and ears. It was such a fascinating blend of screaming electric guitars, electric violins, drums, keyboards, and a classical string sextet playing classically based songs. They went through a Christmas Eve story collection and then for the last hour they just rocked out playing classical music songs with the most amazing dueling keyboardist jam and rockin guitar jams combined with a dazzling pyrotechnics, light, laser show that left us all with our jaws on the floor.

The kids behaved very well for what ended up being a nearly 3 hour show, though the girls both took some naps during the show since it was kind of long for their attention spans. How they managed to do that with the lights and sound I have no clue.

We had taken my father partly as a gift for his birthday and he said he loved every minute and it was truly amazing. The kids made him some homemade birthday cards and then after the show we took him and mom to Macaroni Grill for dinner. He said it was one of his best birthdays ever!

Some crappy phone camera pics of the show. We had side view nosebleed seats, but still could see really well and the show was such a spectacle that it was awesome even from way up there.
