I always enjoyed hearing them play.I never got up and danced but always nice to sit on a bench and listen to. They never drew a large crowd while I was there. This makes sense that they feel they can do better somewhere else.

Not a big fan, but it was always nice to listen to while walking through, or going from pub to smoking section. Would be great if they were replaced by a Pink Floyd cover band. :lol: :lol:

What is everyone's thoughts on the replacement band? They are called The English Channel. Their is a video of them on the other boards, I just don't have a link available.

Musically, they sound great but their presentation just doesn't seem so Disneyish, so Epcotish! They just look like a band you would see at your local pub. I will still give them some time since it is still their first week.

BTW, I was there at British Invasion's last set on Sat 4/30 and it was a lot of fun!

They should bring in a Led Zeppelin cover....or Iron Maiden... yes...


In all honesty I think the only live performance I've ever even stopped for in the WS is Mo'Rockin! and that was brief....

These guys were awesome - they will be missed.

Look at all the people who came out to see their last show. BTW That is Lion Sleeps Tonight in the video with me :-)
