The evening was a blend of pop, folk rock and classical, orchestral melodies with a cosmic touch of psychedelia layered over sweet harmonies and a tasty backbeat that grabbed the listener and didn't let go. As the audience filed out of the arena into the cool Long Island air, every face I saw wore a smile.
