Thanks so much! It sounds really good! This is the best LLWD I've heard from this week.

The show was fabulous. It was very intimate and the sound was awesome. Kris has a wonderfully dry wit, that adds to the entertainment. He is a true professional and it seems like he's been performing for years.

I look forward to future shows. Thanks WaterCoolerConvo and ISB for posting all the videos. It makes me want to go there all over again.
