Not to be a downer, but I have to admit that I don't really get the appeal of these guys. There are probably a dozen local bands here who, IMO, are way better (I've checked out a few of CoRo's live recordings, and - again IMO - these locals have a much better live sound,) but they'll be lucky to get booked outside the state, let alone outside the US; there's just too much competition at approximately the same level. Now, to be fair, this really isn't my favorite musical genre - but it's not my least favorite, either. (shrug) Oh, well, different strokes, and all that...
They are an excellent live band, and put on a very energetic, entertaining and harmonious show which is well worth seeing if you can get to a venue. They've done several mini-tours over here, and have a small but loyal UK following :)
If I could get a couple of days off work, I'd be travelling north or south to see them but unfortunately, this time, I can't do that, and I'm gutted.
I've been lucky enough to see Common Rotation live a number of times and I think they are really something special. They produce great music, beautiful harmonies, and interesting/funny lyrics, but I'll admit that I think of them less as a 'band' and more as minstrels, troubadours, balladeers, or a 'combo'.
