    Hi Tal.
    Saw you with Joe B at the wang theater and was blown away at your fantastic drumming. I was more than blown away after the show when you,
    Carmine and Rick talked to us for about 15 minutes, it was the perfect ending to a great show. I told you the Bass player joke.
    Keep at it and enjoy what your doing cause your one of the best there is.

    Hi Tal,
    OoooOOOooo! Last night’s show at the Shay in Buffalo was SO much fun! You are a delight to watch, and I really appreciate the humor you and Joe bring to the show. We smile, we clap, we stomp and we shout with joy when you two get into the section of the concert where you try to one- up each other. Two virtuosos having a great time- it’s really exciting to watch. My only slight moue of disappointment with the show was that the strobe cue used on you during your solo bits becomes repetitive and ho-hum after a few times. Oh- here comes another solo from Tal and, wait for it…yup! Another strobe effect! Can the lighting designer come up with something that will help build excitement moving toward a pinnacle with your last solo? I just did not think you were done the justice you deserve with the lighting design at those times.

    Tal, my wife & I recently celebrated our 40th anniversary in Las Vegas. It was an extreme blast as we enjoyed the Joe Bonamassa concert at the Pearl. The show was unforgettable Joe B (in white), and you proved to be the drummer extraordinaire. Thanks very much, Dave
