I would definitely assert that that is an accurate assumption to make. Rob Lamberti has a great soaring voice, the moves of the late George, and both the band and orchestra appear to be having an absolute ball. Such bubbling creative energy cannot fail to bathe an already eager crowd in absolute joy.
