Altar Boyz is Back in Toronto July 20 - August 3 2012

From a media release:

July 20 - August 3, 2012
Lower Ossington Theatre, Toronto

– Winner of the Theatre World Award and Outer Critics Circle Award Best Off-Broadway Musical, ALTAR BOYZ by Kevin Del Aguila, Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker is a pious parody of a boy band which wraps tongue-in-cheek lyrics around catchy beats. The band members, four Christians and a Jew, are on tour to reduce the number of burdened souls. With the combination of song, dance, and the help of the “Soul Sensor DX-12”, the Boyz work through their own demons in order to help the audience. ALTAR BOYZ plays July 20th to August 3rd, 2012 at the Lower Ossington Theatre.

“Let us bow our heads and give thanks, because shows this brisk, bright and entertaining don't come along that often in the theatrical liturgy” Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

“It’s lively, a bit irreverent and hysterically funny. It’s Altar Boyz, and you don’t want to miss this one!” Mark Andrew Lawrence, Broadway World

“It sends you home with a smile” Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Stream/Buy on Bandcamp
Stream it on Spotify

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
