Prepare yourselves, if you can, for cover songs performed with such energy and attitude, with voices so pure and performances so transcendent, that you might just find yourself, against your better judgment, dancing so hard that your legs snap off, leaving your torso flopping helplessly -- yet happily -- into a musical oblivion. Such is the power of The Pine Mountain Logs. For these are no ordinary covers. Surprises lurk around every corner. The Police's "Message in a Bottle" might unexpectedly turn into the theme from "Gilligan's Island." The chorus to David Bowie's "Fame" could transition into the chorus from Irene Cara's 80s anthem, "Fame: I'm Gonna Live Forever." Praised for their pitch-perfect harmonies and stunning live shows by superstars like David Crosby, who calls them "the best vocal group in the country and one of the best bands I have ever heard." The Logs' repertoire of high energy classics range from Led Zeppelin to the Jackson Five, Tom Petty, TLC, Aerosmith, Outkast, Steely Dan, Janet Jackson, Doobie Brothers, REM, and Earth Wind and Fire, all reinterpreted with that Venice touch, while clever transitions and unexpected medleys show off a wicked sense of humor.
