Arthur Harrow, music critic

At last! A form of popular entertainment that is a perfect blend of quality, virtuosity, showmanship and appeal!

Two days ago I was afforded the rare privilege of witnessing an exciting new music dragged forth by the scruff of its neck into the limelight by six very young and talented musicians. What at first glance appeared to be nothing more than a young girls' pyjama-party turned out to be the performance of the century- a claim I do not make lightly.

In interviewing the girls back-stage I learned that, not only are all of their amazing compositions original, but all are written solely by the members of their group. No outside songwriter or arranger or composer is the brains behind this little operation. They do it all themselves, including all the effects and electronic sounds, which are generated in real time from the stage.

Their simplest song, which is their anthem, is a march titled "Rocket", which is preceded by a spellbinding medley titled "Overture". Overture blends seamlessly into Rocket, a simple march that serves to set the tone for the rest of the concert.

While all of the girls are amazing and obviously classically-trained singers, it is young Kiko Moore whose heart-seizing voice commands the attention and moves the audience to wonder or to tears. A quiet-spoken, thoughtful young woman who somehow remains unimpressed and unmoved by the trappings of stardom, she seemed to be taking the band's sudden and explosive success in stride with a maturity beyond her years . . .
