    James Moat reported to the Project that:

    The show was astounding due to the particularly outstanding acoustics of the venue. Bruce had the usual amount of banter with us and the requests which were continually being yelled out were acknowledged by him with, "So many tunes, so little time we will get to them all. The people that work here need to go home."

    One highlight of the evening included Feast of Fools, due to Bruce informing us about the history of the event and how the Feast of Fools was essentially a "big f**k you" to the aristocracy and royalty of centuries ago in northern Europe. He equated that the only form of this "f**k you" to the establishment these days consists of hip hop music. He then went into the song which rocked!!!
