"Live, it's ____ , for one special night (cue explosion FX) (cue hook from biggest hit w/fake crowd fx) with special guests ______ (cue hook, then lasers fx, etc...)"
I jokingly said I could do the whole thing with just my big mouth, and then got a free half-hour in the production studio to create a promo for our next show, a band called "Casting Crowns". The result is dangerously close to reality:
If you haven't heard of Casting Crowns, I can help. I'm not a great music reviewer, because my own tastes get in the way. Nevertheless, here's what I can objectively offer:
Casting Crowns is a band that has recorded many songs, using the very same recording technology that's been employed by many top acts in the industry, including, but not limited to, computers.
The band hails from Georgia, considered one of the top 50 musically-influential states in the union.
Casting Crowns is a very big band. There are seven people in this very big band. There are only three members of The Police, which, musically speaking, makes Casting Crowns 133% more dense. If they were to play U2 in dodgeball, The Edge would have to personally hit three people from Georgia just to even the match.
Two more members, and they could march in formation, and spell stuff.
Casting Crowns outnumbers some of the top bands of our era, including Radiohead and Coldplay, and they have six more members than "Lauryn Hill". Their live show evokes memories of early 2112-era Rush, as they also use mic stands. And you'll recognize many of their instruments, including Beatles-esque six-string guitars.
