Trans Siberian Orchestra are a rock orchestra who tour the country during the season of hoping playing, well, orchestrated versions of rock classics.
It’s really not a bad idea.
Lotsa lights and fires, lotsa pomp and circumstance, and no rock and roll ego to deal with at all. The medium is absolutely the message here. In 1996 they began as an orchestrated Christmas band but over time they have become more symphonic rock oriented, sometimes featuring guest stars like Roger Daltry and Neal Peart.
During the holiday season three different TSOs will be simultaneously criss crossing the country -a brilliant idea that has made the former rock promoter Paul O’Neill very, very rich.
This is something bands like the Drifters, the Four Tops, the Temptations, even folks like the Turtles, the Lovin’ Spoonful, the Raiders should consider. You could do well choereographed rock shows across the country: the Middle East, Japan, or somewhere really exotic like Idaho. It would work with any band that doesn’t have a clearly defined presense and a catalogue.
