They started off with "Another
Weekend" followed by "All Fall Down" and "Let Me Be
All of the dance moves were crisp and energetic. After they introduced themselves, they
introduced the next song which was "Eyes Don't Lie". The song is so
fresh, for lack of a better word, and just makes you feel good when you hear it which is
typical of Five Star's music.
It just makes you feel good and with Denise and Lorraine smiling throughout,you can't help
but join them. Stedman's facial expression is more serious, never letting you forget that
this group is rooted in smooth, groove. In fact, during the instrumental break of "Funktafied",
he did a very smooth freestyle dance solo while Denise and Lorraine felt the beat on
either sideof him.
The next song in the set was "Can't Wait Another Minute" which
broughtback memories, followed by another new one; "I Get Such A High".
This songwas very, very interesting.
The instrumentation of it and vocal style is Five Star like you've never heard them. The
song is mid-tempo and very soulful. It's a perfect vehicle to show off Denise's lower
vocal register and boy does she get deep! I have to be honest and say that I was caught
off guard by this song but liked it very much. There is a beautiful break in it near the
end where most of the music drops out so all you can hear are the beautiful harmonies
blending perfectly. After this song, they thanked the crowd, said goodnight and left the
stage. Alas, it was over far too soon...
