Wow! LOL Anyone heard of this band? They are a 25 or so group of people that not only sing, but have a huge orchestra! Their single Light and Day has appeared in some advert. I dont remember which one.

I saw this band on the show Best Week Ever, and I have to say that I'm impressed with their sound. It reminds me of Jesus Christ Superstar for some strange reason. :))

Their white robes are kind of freaky. I heard that they are actually a cult. Is this true? If so, its giving a new positive light to cults after negative moments in "cult-dom" such as Jim Jones, David Koresh, and Sun Yung Moon. :))

LOL They are a trip!

I'll be seeing them support Dame Bowie in Berkeley (April 2004).

Should be quite an evening. :-)

I saw that show too, but had seen that video they were talking about before. It's a good song. If the second single is as good, I might even join their cult.

Love,

Uh my I know this is in bad taste, but I just found it funny.

What would be the name of Jim Jones's band?

Kool Aid and the gang :P
