Comments about the Florida Theatre Show:

Well, the show was great! Here are some comments we have recieved via e-mail:


AND THE MEMORY LINGERS..........

"And, what a nice memory it is! The date.....August 28, 1999.....the time..... about 9:45 PM.....the place.....The Florida Theater in Jacksonville, Florida.....the stage set.....with headliner BAYSTREET!"

--

"Where does one start to describe an evening with Baystreet? With one uninvited guest, Hurricane Dennis sitting off shore, this turned into an intimate night with some of Baystreet's best friends. And Baystreet treated their friends royally with an evening of fantastic entertainment."

--

"From the dramatic beginning and the first sounds of And the World Turns Around Again to the very last note of Render Me Helpless, this was an unforgetable evening. These are expert musicians with a sophisticated sound. Their material and arrangements clearly indicate they know exactly what sound they want and that they know exactly how to get it!"

--

"Take Jim Brown for instance. Jim has to be one of the very best guitarist in the business. He knows his way around a guitar so well that would make most other guitarists shrink with envy. Jim is joined with the perfection of Cliff Huber on the saxophone. Together they make an unbeatable pair! Then add the keyboard and singing talent of Mike Hollingsworth. Mike is very talented and outgoing on stage. For being somewhat shy offstage his outgoing personality on stage surprises everyone! Dave Smith is versatile on bass and keyboard. Now we just need to bring him up-front more and show him off! And, Travis Coleman keeps it all going with his talent and hard work on the drums and back-up vocals."

--

"Then.....Sexy John Miller puts it all together with his terrific singing and showmanship. John has written most of Baystreet's songs and has arranged them for the band, with their help and input. An extremely talented musician and singer, John knows very well how to entertain an audience. And does so magnificently!"

--

"So, put all this talent and showmanship together and what do you have..... Baystreet, of course.....what else!" Pat Melton Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

"Just wanted to let you know we had a blast at the show. and it was a great honor to introduce you all there. you would not have to ask us twice to do it again. we are going to be playing the new song " peace " and the new version of " deep blues " on the show this saturday on the show. tell everyone. we would love to thank you and the rest of the band again for giving us some GREAT MUSIC to play on the show."

--

"I would like to say thanks to the Band for a great time Sat. night. You guys looked like you were all having a great time and so were we. Nice opening, we all liked that. JB(nice solo), Travis(nice solo), Cliff(crystal clear all night), Mike(almost beat his Keyboards into the stage), Dave(nice job), John(great job on Peace(my fav)). BAYSTREET====(JOB WELL DONE!!!!!)"

--

"You have a very sophisticated sound and appeal to the more well educated mature audience."

--

"I loved the dramatic entrance and beginning of the show. That's class!"

--

"Your band is really terrific! And you aren't so bad yourself :) :)!! I told Mom that last year it was raining so hard at times that we did not hear the entire show. This time was different! You have a lot of talent and charisma. Love the clothes changes during the show. Love the sunglasses too! You need to get yourselves booked down our way so we have another opportunity soon to watch your performance! I can tell you really love it!" --

"congrats......Baystreet on a GREAT show!.......we really had a good time last nite......although i was (as i'm sure you were) concerned that Baystreet would be "born in a cross fire hurricane"!!.....looks like Dennis had mercy on you after all though........just wanted to thank you for a great show... "

--

"I think you have a very sophisticated sound and I like Peace. Your guitar man is fantastic. Probably one of the best I have ever seen or heard. Actually I thought every man in your band was good. Could have gone on for another hour or so as far as we were concerned. That is the first time I've seen you on stage from the "front". Last time I saw you was from the side of the stage....and that's just not the same! We both thought you were great. I do mean it when I call you a SEXY SINGER. You really are. Remember when I told Carl (Dixon, lead singer of the Guess Who) what his job is on stage and embarrassed him? Well, no has to tell you that. You already know!!! Loved the show. "
