Well done boys...

"When I gound out that The network was releasing a DVD i was very excited. But when i found out that it was going to be a live concert i was all the more. This is a great DVD and if you are a fan of the Networks full length Money Money 2020 you will love this companion. The network's humor is great it will keep you laughin' and dancin'. Well done guys..."
Yes it's live... and not.

"Having been lucky enough to be at the concert at the Key Club contained within the DVD, I can assure everyone that the performances here were indeed live and in front of a packed house. That said, there is non-concert footage interspersed within the show- my guess is 'dress-rehersal' footage shot to add additional angles, etc. to the final DVD. Pretty obvious when you notice 2 different hats on Van Gough during one 3 minute song... but so what? Although it results in the occasional 'lip-sync' look mentioned in an earlier review, his in no way lessens the fun- and I can tell you first-hand that the soundtrack is as heard the night of the show- a sonic blast! Highly recommended!"
