T Minus 5: ... And Counting

We had the pleasure of hearing the 6 male voices of T Minus 5 at the 2001 Harmony Sweeps Finals, where they performed as Rocky Mountain Regional Champs. The tight harmonies, country flavor and humor that wowed the crowd that night are present in spades on ...And Counting. In fact, "You Can Depend On Me," "Grow Old With You," the hilarious "Redneck Avenger," "Welcome To The Jungle" (which sounds suspiciously like "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"), and "Pie Jesu" were all part of their electric 12-minute performance. "Best Years of our Lives," from "Shrek," "I Love You," "Precious Lord," Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al," U2's "All I Want," John Fogerty's classic "Down On The Corner" and "Pie Jesu"-it's all good stuff. The guys are having fun up there, letting it all hang out with the confident spirit of born performers. One of the most impressive first CDs we've heard!

T Minus 5: Alive

The five young men of T Minus 5 got their first glimpse of fame in spring, 2000 in Ogden, Utah, winning a Weber State U. talent show. Having only been a group for one year, they entered and won the 2001 Harmony Sweepstakes Denver Regional against tough competition and went on to win "Audience Favorite" at the Finals in San Rafael. They have been on a performing rampage ever since, their energy and humor winning them new fans wherever they go. There are 16 live cuts on "Alive," some favorites: "Red Neck Avenger" (which wowed the crowd at the '01 Finals), Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl," Paul Simon's "Cecilia," Bono's "All I Want," Sly Stone's "Dance to the Music," Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," "Best Years of Our Lives," "Lean On Me" and "Down to the River to Pray." T Minus 5's forte is live performance-just listen to the audience response on "Alive." Great stuff!

T Minus 5: Purity

"Purity" is the third excellent CD by 2001 Rocky Mountain Harmony Sweeps finalists, all-male quintet T Minus 5, an 8-song collection. Six of the tunes are Gospel hymns: "Because I Have Been Given Much," "Precious Lord, Take My Hand," "Jesus, the Very Thought of Thee," "Once in Royal David's City," "I Need Thee Every Hour" and "A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief" (which is lightly piano accompanied) The final two cuts are the folk tune "Shenandoah" and "The Star Spangled Banner." Rich harmonies and deep feeling are present in each of these inspirational, beautiful selections.

T Minus 5: Road Trip

We know we're in for a good time with the first rock-solid vocal percussion beats of War's "Low Rider" come on T-minus 5's "radio," which segues into Sly and the Family Stone's rock anthem "Dance to the Music," an electronic-funky, faux-horned masterpiece. Group member Shawn Satterthwaite contributes the sweet, romantic "Your Love," other nice originals are "Wrapped Up In You" by Wayne Kirkpatrick, and " Midnight Daze" by T Minus 5. Excellent covers of Lennon/McCartney's "When I'm Sixty-Four," "Mayberry," Barry Manilow's "One Voice," "He Still Loves Me" (arranged by our friend Richard "Bob" Green, and The Guess Who's "American Woman" add to the good feeling. We loved T-Minus 5 at the 2001 Harmony Sweeps Finals, and their great harmonies and down home song selection have only gotten better. Every song on "Road Trip" is a winner!
