Saw Mannheim Steamroller Christmas show last night at Harrah's Casino in Atlantic City. Much like Trans-Siberian Orchestra, they have two different bands out on the road right now, a Red Tour and a Green Tour. This was their Red Tour, featuring six musicians plus a 7-piece backing orchestra.
Concert was good, but not thrilled with venue.
A Fresh Aire Christmas
We weren't informed that our tickets were obstructed view, but there was a huge curved speaker hanging from the ceiling blocking our view.

|"there was a huge curved speaker hanging from the ceiling blocking our view"|
lol that sucks. I got the whole Fresh Aire boxset at a garage sale and the first Christmas album. Pretty good background, proggy synth stuff.
|It's interesting how Mannheim Steamroller and Trans-Siberian Orchestra turned their new age beginnings into a Christmas tradition, but they are truly one of the sounds of Christmas now . . . sorry to hear about the obstructed view. I didn't know that happened anymore. Speakers are so small now.|
|They rule, grew up on them |
|Not these speakers, Twig. They were humongous and curved. We could actually see the band OK, but they do their shows with all kinds of cool video things running on the screen behind them, and we couldn't see that for anything.|
|Yeah, I like them, Friday and ATARI. They're an important part of every Christmas. My wife and I actually saw them live once before about 12 years ago. We saw back to back concerts at the Mohegan Sun -- Duran Duran the first night and them the second. We had better tickets then, though.|
|I've heard a couple of their Fresh Aire albums (I, V and VI if memory serves) and always thought they were solid. Never heard any of their CHristmas stuff though|
Should probably check out more
|would love to see Mannheim my mom used to play their stuff around christmas every year and I always really enjoyed it|
