Celebrate Toronto! Attila Fias and Eric St-Laurent are lighting up Toronto with multitudes of talent and performed live on stage at the famous, ‘Hugh’s Room‘ in Toronto, Canada to ovation after ovation!
I’m still trying to catch my breath from seeing this amazing show, loaded with, out-of-this-world talent.
Off my wife and I went to the famous Hugh’s Room on Dundas street west, a historic Live music venue that has hosted some of the worlds best in the past and our night with the double CD release for Attila and Eric was to be no different. Playing to a packed house with crowds chanting for both of these two great musicians, the magic that was performed on this night will take a permanent place in the hearts and minds of all who saw and heard their performances. Eric on guitar, performed with his very talented band playing tunes from his new CD, ‘Planet‘ and it was obvious that this musician could be at the top of the class at any venue. His words and his music both exemplified his passion for his art and it was pure pleasure listening to his arrangements. What a wow and what a way he performed the house down, tune after tune, calming the beat of every heart in the room with pure, silk-like talent. The beauty of this artistic man would always be among the very best.
And Attila. My good friend for many years, with whom I have had the honour of singing at a few gigs with, the forever picture of the word, incredible, in the worlds only true magical dictionary, the inspiration to every key of the finest pianos, the standard from which every pianist should gain musical integrity and the scale of which to measure pianos finest arrangements. Attila and his very talented Trio and guest musicians presented a live performance that will last in many-a-heart, always. I have had the honour of listening to many of his arrangements, but on his newest CD release, ‘Ride‘, my heart sides with three songs; Ride, Hungarian Folk Song and Cutie. They all are wonderful and I would without hesitation plead you to listen to all of his songs on his latest CD, as well as the hundreds of many of his others. However, the Hungarian Folk Song, knowing of Attila having a Hungarian background and with his brother in the audience, took me to a place in my heart of love and understanding for the music, that all the money in the world just could not buy.
Well done my friends. You are both simply two of the very best!
