Shiny Happy People

The Polyphonic Spree is one Big Moment away from stardom. Right?

"And the show warrants it," Doyle says. "I mean, it's different every night. It's very live. And that's a big part of our band."

Maybe the Big Moment that Hollywood is searching for will come at one of those residencies. Or maybe those shows will produce a series of them, smaller pieces that add up to a greater whole. They've come so far in the past year. Who knows where they'll be a year from now? DeLaughter is just happy to be where he is right now, spreading the love until it comes all the way back to him.

Having a ball: Front man Tim DeLaughter can't see the future, but he and his 23 (or so) Polyphonic Spreemates believe that, if they sing it, success will come. And white-robed happy people will fill the earth.

C'mon, people now: It's no secret the band sells itself best with its live show. "We'll go to a place and play two nights," says trombone player James Reimer. "The first night, it might be half-full. But that second night, it's completely packed out."

"As far as religion, I think the people in this group are all over the map," DeLaughter says. "There's nothing we've embraced. What we do embrace is the band. When we play a show together, we all kind of express and absorb that same jubilant feeling. I think that's the one thing we've all got in common. A lot of us are the same, and some of us are completely different, but yet, we all get together. We all get to celebrate that same feeling. For an hour and a half, we're pretty much on the same page. That's pretty amazing. I've never experienced that before."
