I loved the crystal ballroom concert and from the war songs you did i got the idea that it would sound really awesome if you guys and girl did “funny the way it is” by Dave Matthews band. it would be the awesomest thing ever but there is no keys or violin in it so it would sound even better if you improvised…………

    These would really be cool.
