Ladies and Gentleman ... is the adult version of a bunch of kids saying, "let's start a band," which sounds like an entertaining read to me for that reason alone. However, it is also (as this line stolen from the book puts it), "a lesson in persistence, perseverance, salesmanship, and faith."
The main characters in this book are much different (which is where a fair portion of the story conflict comes from), but each needs "redemption" for different reasons. Even the wild card in the band needs something, although he doesn't realize it and what it is isn't readily apparent. A fun, feel good story.
