The Brothers Knudsen are no strangers to a cappella, first as a barbershop quartet performing in SPEBSQSA competitions under the direction of their gifted father, then coming together again professionally as a quintet as adults. They won the Harmony Sweeps and become a popular touring band, amazing audiences worldwide. "Live Wired" is their 8th excellent recording, a live CD of 15 pop and rock classics, sung before very appreciative audiences. The guys have picked up instruments on this one, 2 guitars and a tamborine, but the vocals, including strong vocal percussion, are as strong and spirited as ever! The Doobie's "Listen To The Music," the Beatles' "Twist and Shout," Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman," (a vocal percussion tour-de-force), a shimmering a cappella "I Believe I Can Fly," "With Or Without You," "What I Like About You" got us boogying, Brian Wilson's (a cappella) "In My Room," and a five-song "Elvis Medley" reminds us how good it truly must have been to be King, awful B-movies or no. A lovely a cappella "It's A Blue World owes a debt to Dad Knudson for being a Four Freshman fan , we loved "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," God help us, and a great album closes with "Rockin' Robin" and a "Shout." The Knudsens are flat-out great entertainers who have big fun on stage, they sing with feeling and spirit, and we would surely love to see them in concert again. This CD is a stone winner!
