Quick and to the Point: Frat-housy exhilarating musical good times!



You'll probably find yourself laughing it up upon listening to Brontosaurus, by the singing quartet Da Vinci's Notebook. Although an a cappella ensemble, they are variously supported by instruments in this excellent party recording.



There is an enticing musical variety throughout the production. Folk, Blues, Celtic, Jazz, Latin, Jamaican, Country, Pop and other tinges characterize it. The excellent musical arranging frameworks light-hearted, highly original and entertaining lyrics that cover everything from enemas to the existential benefits of having a gargantuan penis, as well as one of the best drinking Irish songs on record. Of course, since the lead singers are musically trained performers and singers Brontosaurus' musical and singing quality is beyond dispute.



Having a healthy sense of humor guarantees a fine experience with these fellows. It is a given that PC-easily-offended goons are not the intended audience for this unique vocal group. If met in a bar, you'd be buying Da Vinci's Notebook drinks all night and singing along:

We'll drink and drink and drink and drink
And then we'll drink some more
We'll dance and sing and fight
Until the early morning light
Then we'll throw up, pass out, wake up and then go drinking once again'



You sure will, you sure will'
