An Evening With The Fishbowl Boys
Written by Petra Dzurovcinova
Young, fresh and loving life.
This is how I would describe the a capella quartet of 21-year-olds The Fishbowl Boys: Kieran O’Dea – Tenor, Matthew Lykos – Lead, Robin Breugelmans – Baritone and Cameron DuRieu – Bass. After a long day at work, they put an easy smile on my face. They told me that everything will be alright as long as there is love in my life. And I believed them.
Let me say that The Sound of Silence never sounded so good. All-time classics interspersed by funny twisted originals made us laugh and relax.
They warned the audience about their love of engaging us. If you felt like it, you could join in and sing, but my personal highlight of the audience participation was when the quartet formed a strategic rectangle around the room and interviewed the crowd.
Their performance made me feel so young. Yes, I’ll admit that one of them was awfully handsome, and when he sang Moondance I nearly fell in love.
Each member of the quartet had a different story to share. And that made it so special for me. It wasn’t just about their looks; their personalities grabbed your heart.
The Fishbowl Boys had advice for any situation. One of the key messages for a mid-life crisis, or a bad day was,
“if your life is turning bad, thinking about your big penis, even if the size doesn’t matter!”
The pop song finale was a cover version of Britney’s Oops I Did It Again: it really made my day!
The fellas convinced me to buy a CD, partly to help Kieran the Tenor move out, but mostly so I can enjoy their great music anytime I want.
P.S: I am even considering hiring them for my wedding!
