The Fleetwood Mac Experience product reviews

The Sound Workshop presents Fleetwood Mac - The Chain. A collection of Fleetwood classics with something for everyone to enjoy and remember: from older classics like Albatross (a hit for the first Fleetwood Mac line-up), to The Chain (a big favourite) Rhiannon, Gold Dust Woman, landslide, Go Your Own Way, Don't Stop through to Tusk. Although delivered with choreography and costuming and the use of similar instruments, the show's entourage are all crystal clear that the intent is not just a "tribute" but to also give the audience a whole experience of the music from one of the world's more appreciated bands.

The show's members find it uncanny that although they are all from very different international upbringings (Jolanta is Polish and they also have American and English musicians), all had experienced a good smattering of Fleetwood Mac music through their upbringings. They say that they never have to think twice about the wisdom of adding another Fleetwood Mac tune to their repertoire as they entertain all year round at large corporate and community events, here and overseas.

The Fleetwood Mac Experience believe the Mac "Chain" will never be broken as many musicians will always derive pleasure from playing their songs and their own experience on the road tells them the people will never tire of hearing it.

I've grown up listening to Fleetwood Mac songs, from as far back as I can recall. And with my memory for sound, I can usually spot an 'almost-but-not-quite' rendition of a favourite song. So I was not without some interest and trepidation about this show.

Due to the last-minute nature of our tickets (and I would like to thank the Regent staff for their invaluable and much appreciated assistance in the matter) we missed the curtain lifting, and arrived about 10 minutes late. Thankfully, our seating was on the edge of the audience, so we didn't disturb too many people as we sat.

I was stunned by the soundscape in the theatre, it was perfect. No dead-spots, an even coverage. brilliant job, because it brought out the very best of every song. Whenever I took a moment to glance around, I could see a totally entranced audience, drawn into the music.

Synthetic seagulls heralded the start of the second half, with was again full of harmony, power and spirit. My personal highlight of the show would have to have been 'Landslide' which I also enjoyed when it was performed by The Dixie Chicks on their latest DVD. I was also taken with the sheer force behind 'Tusk'... it was almost overwhelming. However, my only grip with the show happened here too... the drum solo. W-A-Y too long guys.

The Finale was also a favourite of mine, Gold-dust Woman. I was impressed by Hole's cover on The Crow soundtrack, but this was as good as the original in every way, making it better by far. For the Encore, Go Your own Way was their choice, and it had the audience up and dancing, finally getting into the swing of things. It ended the show with a standing ovation, giving all due credit in the process.

overall, The Sound Workshop are more than just a tribute band or imitators, they are strong performers in their own right and have an amazingly eclectic repetoir. I was very impressed, and would love to see some of their other tribute shows.

Having been a great fan of all of Fleetwood Mac's songs over the years, I will admit to being a little concerned that these guys would do them any justice. I need not have worried myself. The performance of the songs was pretty damn spot on to what I remember over the years, with personal touches from the performers adding to the experience.

I found myself bopping and singing along to old favourites like 'Tell me lies' and 'Rhiannon' like I had been almost possessed by the music.

Surprisingly, not a great turn out for such a well thought out and produced show.

To finish, I thought it was a great show, well worth the time and thoroughly entertaining.
