There are only three more chances to catch the Altar Boyz at the Gunston Arts Center, before their tour is officially over! The buzz has been hot! Look what the reviews are saying!
“The music was great and the performers had a lot of energy. The video which accompanied one of the songs was really entertaining. This was a fun evening!”
“The choreography kicks ass!”
“The show is a riot!”
“Lively, peppy, pizzazz”
“I laughed my ass off… You blew me away.”
There is one critical element to the show that we haven’t discussed on the blog yet. And that is God. No we’re not going to delve into a deep philosophical discussion. We’re talking about the Voice of God that you hear giving the pre-show “commandments” and instructing the Boyz during the show on how to go forth, with pleather-covered loins and product-laden hair, and spread his Word.
When hear the Voice of God, you might think it sounds familiar. Unless you’ve had any conversations with a burning bush lately, it’s most likely that you recognize it to be that of local radio personality Michael J. Elston, a.k.a, Buzz Burbank.
Buzz Burbank is a popular radio personality in Washington DC, and around the country. He’s been a prominent character on the nationally-syndicated Don and Mike Show and The Mike O’Meara Show for 19 years. Buzz worked in news for CBS Radio for 24 years. Recently he voiced the Sylvania Ultra-Bright Headlights commercial, which ran on all major networks, and has done voice work for The Discovery Channel, and The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. A recipient of the Associated Press Award for “Best Newscast” Buzz is still a featured player on The Mike O’Meara Show, one of the most popular comedy podcasts on iTunes. Buzz has also hosted talk and entertainment shows, and worked off-and-on in television. He loves theater, and has dabbled a bit backstage as well as onstage.
After seeing Altar Boyz, this is what he had to say:
“Congratulations on…a great production! Thank you for letting me be part of it! Altar Boyz rule(s)!” –Mike Elston
