|In June 1998 the Moodies played at the Nissan
Pavilion at Stone Ridge, a venue about 45 miles west of Washington, D.C.
This go around the group did not use a symphony orchestra to back them up,
instead relying totally on their own considerable talents. Although
I have seen them play with symphonies, and it is a true delight, I also
enjoyed the rawness, and intimacy that the smaller production seemed to
generate. The lighting and special effects were first rate, with a
lot of blues, pastels, and psychedelic art forms that really took the
audience back to the 1960's when the group began. One fact cannot be
argued, after more than 30 years the group still looks and sounds great!
