The folks at Sunrise Entertainment brought legendary musician and producer Alan Parsons to Youngstown’s Powers Auditorium last week and he did not disappoint .The crowd was a mixed age of teenagers to the seasoned music goer and everything in between.Patrons from Pittsburgh to Columbus showed up see a night of magic and wonder brought to life in a series of sharp and flat notes dancing magically in the ear drums and on the eyes . Alan Parsons sold over 50 millions records from 1976 to 1986 not including his historical time with both the Beatles and Pink Floyd .That is one resume most artists would be happy with one tenth of the history .
The wonderful Don’t Answer me came up next to the delight of the audience
Some of the best parts of the evening were when Alan tells the audience stories of his adventures or misadventures as it were from the life of an iconic icon .The touring musicians associated with Alan were some of the best we have ever seen each adding their own take on the compositions.
The band consists of PJ Olsson on Vocals , Alastair Greene on lead guitar and vocals,Danny Thompson on drums , Guy Erez on bass guitar , Tom Brooks on keyboards,Todd Cooper on Saxophone and vocals , Dan Tracey on guitars and Manny Focarazzo . If you ever get a chance to see this act live we highly suggest you do , its a night to remember !
