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'

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
