    Silent movie + live music -- fun combo. Didn't know Cliff has an identical twin brother -- the lead singer and guitar. Road trip to San Francisco for a family reunion might be in order...am sure we can organize a road trip posse...let us know Cliff!

    an excellant choice of an event in a fabulous venue. i have enjoyed viewing many silent films but to have a live band playing music while the film ran was running was amazing. all i needed was a box of popcorn.

    loved it . thought the music was far better than the films, but they were kind of interesting to see and of course they showed another dimension of how truly talented and professional the musicians are.

    A fresh and original idea; was like seeing a Charlie Chaplin movie live. I loved the first of the three movie that they showed. And while the music was exquisite I would rather seeing a better moving picture than the last two.

    That was really toe tapping good. The music was really great, though the last flick creeped me out and I'll probably have nightmares tonight about puppets and Paris. It was nice to be invited to sit with the in-crowd after half-time.

    Happy Saturday! For any of you who don't yet have tickets, please note that the Arden performance has assigned seating. The Lord of the Stage and I are in section Main, Row K, seats 37-38 (on the aisle). As of today. there are 8 tickets still available in Row K - seats 28 to 36 for anyone who'd like to sit as a group. Get them now! You can purchase through Ticketmaster or from the Arden Box Office at[masked]-1542. Although there is plenty of unsold space in the first 3 rows, I felt it was too close when we'll be watching a silent film as well as enjoying the concert jazz!
