"Busy Bee Band Follies '95"

On May 19, 1994, the Busy Bee Band & Honeybees attended the Toronto, Ontario production of "Phantom of the Opera" at the Pantages Theater.  The experience of live musical theater was such an influence that our 1994 fall showband featured Masquerade at the conclusion of our show.  The second act of Follies '95 began with Act II of Phantom of the Opera.  The scene opens in front of the grand staircase of the Opera House.  It is New Year's Eve and M'sieur Firmin and M'sieur Andre, the owners of the Opera House, welcome the audience for the Masquerade until an uninvited visitor appears.
