I had not seen Smokey Joe's Cafe until I got this DVD, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that after seeing it, I really couldn't get the songs out of my head! The singers are fabulous! All of them bring a wonderful energy to the show and you can tell that they truly do love their job and love performing this show! Show stopping numbers are "Trouble," "Don't," and "Don Juan," but there isn't anything too shabby about any of the others! Entertaining from beginning to end! And I will say that while I don't think Matt Bogart does the BEST of jobs on "Jailhouse Rock" he sure doesn't hurt any of the songs that he sings. He is wonderful on "Ruby" and especially great on "Teach Me How To Shimmy" (my personal favorite...next to "Spanish Harlem"!) Basically...buy it or rent it, but see this show!!!
