The Sound Machine's 1995 Field Show is a unique combinaton of New Age and Classic Rock music. After watching the video of his "Live at the Acropolis" concert, we deciced that the music of "Yanni" would make an interesting mix with the classic tunes from the rock group "Yes". We have tried carefully to weave a tapistry of sound, opening our show, as Yanni opened his concert, with "Santorini". Weaving into this powerful tune many of different colors of Yes and other highlights from Yanni. We hope you enjoy our creation! Y ask Y?

"The Meeting" and "Santorini" (middle section) - Yes / Yanni

The Sound Machine's 1994 Field Show continues our portrayal of Classic Rock music. We have, for the last several years, explored the music of artists such as Elton John, Queen, Styx and Peter Gabriel. With this years show, we chose to explore American Rock, Classic and Contemporary. Going back to the mid-1970's, we were inspired to create our opening production, by the tasty writing of the group "Kansas". Our staff found a young group, that has a great new style, with a classic background, and decided that "Dream Theater" should close our show. We hope you enjoy!
"Surrounded" - Dream Theater
"Metropolis - Part 1" (Percussion Feature) - Dream Theater
"Surrounded" (Finale) - Dream Theater
