The band, which is supplemented by a drummer, had a variety of toys with them on stage to create an electronically layered symphony blended perfectly with acoustic sounds. In addition to the music, they had pre-made videos projected above which were also mixed live to correspond with the music.
There was definitely a formal element to their show with the men wearing suits and playing their instruments as if they were performing surgery – concentrating on their movements as they delicately hit the keys, turned the knobs, strummed the guitar, and rolled on the snares.
Some other highlights to the show included “When Megan Met Michael” with Michael Caine inserted into the diner scene in “When Harry Met Sally,” “I Might Be Gay” which exclaims, “When I was a little boy, I thought I was special,” and “I’d do Anything For You,” a robot love story in which Mossman ultimately professed he would do anything for Brooklyn.
And of course, I noticed the Pocket Piano among the toys which had a solo in the opening of “Born to Lick Your Face. FOYS vs Chevy Chase.” Fall On Your Sword also did something else that I haven’t seen anyone else do with the Pocket Piano, they had it set the tempo for an entire song.
