True Legends Are Made Of This

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Johnny Maestro's voice is truly a gift that keeps on giving. In this live performance from Stamford, CT, Johnny and The Brooklyn Bridge perform sixteen of their greatest hits and I can assure you that their voices and harmonies have never sounded better. I was pleasantly surprised to see "Your Husband, My Wife" among the songs that the band chose to perform. While band members may not have particularly cared for the song's lyrics, I believe that it remains one of their greatest accomplishments. As always, Johnny flawlessly hits the notes on "Blessed Is The Rain", "The Worst That Can Happen" and Bobby Hatfield's rendition of "Unchained Melody." The interviews with Johnny and other band members provide valuable insight as to what has united The Brooklyn Bridge over the years. This DVD is a must for all Brooklyn Bridge fans. It shows us why the band continues to sell out concerts and it gives us hope that Johnny Maestro and The Brooklyn Bridge will begin to receive the recognition and respect they so rightfully deserve."

"From the very first time I heard the marvelous voice of Johnny Maestro, I became a solid fan. Sure, this concert would definitely have benefitted from 5.1 sound, and other amenities, but the voice of Johnny Maestro, and the solid backup of the Brooklyn Bridge (and the excellent two singers from the former Del Satins), carried this DVD into the Must-Have category. Get it, crank up the sound, sit back and put your feet on the coffee table, and enjoy the heck out of this excellent performance."
Johnny Maestro in total control!

"Out of all the 50's & early 60's Rock & Rollers, Johnny Maestro has remained the one singer who sounds exactly the same as he did back then. It's hard to believe but if you close your eyes, you can't tell it's a 21st Century concert. The BB harmonies are right on as well. The only complaint, and why I did not give this 5 stars, is the interviews that pop up between songs. It would have been nice to see the concert with no interruptions. But, by all means, get this. You won't be disappointed."
