Really good. Hard to fathom how fast they can strum but it's really the one older guy who is doing the majority of the picking that gives the songs their sound. The two main guys are getting older but are still good and still sound like the recordings. They are starting to bring a few younger relatives into the mix.
It was a really good night and the crowd was quite into it, standing for a lot of it and dancing at the ends of the rows of seats.
All of the conversing to the crowd was in Spanish except for the final comments by the lead singer which were in French.
Fun to see these guys in person after listening to a lot of their music. Great to see their camaraderie on stage, they really do love playing together. Great energy. It wasn't a big venue, so every seat was good, not far from the stage.
