Blue Man Group

Profile:
Blue Man Group is best known for its award-winning theatrical productions which critics have described as "ground-breaking," "hilarious," "visually stunning" and "musically powerful." These performances feature three enigmatic bald and blue characters who take the audience through a multi-sensory experience that combines theatre, percussive music, art, science and vaudeville into a form of entertainment that is like nothing else. People from all over the world, from all walks of life and from all age groups have become fans of Blue Man Group's show in New York, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Orlando, Berlin, Tokyo, and Basel.

Blue Man Group is also known for its unique style of music which is played on a variety of invented instruments. Blue Man Group's 1999 debut album, AUDIO was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Pop Instrumental Album category. One reviewer called it "a glorious wall of sound."

Blue Man Group released their highly anticipated second album, "The Complex", which served as a bit of a departure for the enigmatic performers. The subsequent Complex Rock Tour has been hailed as “awesome musicianship enhanced by unadulterated good humor and fun” by The Chicago Sun-Times.

In addition to live shows and music, Blue Man Group has created installations, "happenings," "unusual ads," a number of television-specific performances for "The Tonight Show" (several of which were nominated for Emmy awards) and have most recently ventured into toy development.

In November of 2004 my wife and I had the distinct pleasure of watching the German incarnation of this act perform live, in Berlin. The words that immediately spring to mind range from 'incredible' to 'astounding' to 'fabulous' to 'fantastic', and everything else inbetween.
The show (since it's much less of a concert) is entertaining beyond belief, very funny and well... these guys are just incredibly skilled entertainers - without saying a single word! Mute the trio may be, yet their painted and earless faces exude such expression that one wonders how it is possible that they still managed to interact and get such reaction from the audience (the first few rows of which, mind you, were given complimentary plastic coats to protect from the squirting paint).
As for the music: Nothin' 'lectronic about these boys... supported by a band that included at least six drummers and percussionists, they belted out... well, what? Loud, instrumental rock. I dunno how else to describe it, I haven't even heard their albums (shame on me!) - but it was great. Loved 'em!
