I know there'e a thread on these guys somewhere else but I couldn't find it. I'm going to see them next week at a small theatre in Sacramento(The Crest) I'm looking forward to it. Can anyone out there give me a clue what I'm in for?. I have read mixed reviews but mostly positive. I WANNA hear Grateful Dead music LIVE!!! Saw Ratdog last year. Mediocre at best! I know they are just a cover band, blah,blah,blah but There are those of us out there who say what they do; they do very well. anyone w/first hand experience? BTW couldn't hold out too long listened to the Dead all day today! 7/12/90-DP11-Mars Hotel and now getting ready to hit the hay w/American Beauty Cool

So, are you back? Or in a semi-dead state now?

I am in kind of a semi-dead state now, but this week I have been hitting a bit more.

Seen them over 10 times the two past years, never been dissapointed. Rob eaton, the Bobby guy is a great talent, Jerry guy has a close voice, but sorry no one can come close to pluckin strings like Jerry. If you are there to hear good music your going to have a great time. If you are gonna sit there and compare them to the real deal don't bother going. Let us know how it went and what kind of setlist they played, have fun!

Nothing wrong with that. Many weeks the only time I listen is on the weekend, once at that.

Keeps things in perspective.

Hey! I'm really excited about going to see DSO tonite. I'm taking my 10 yr. old son w/me. He's REALLY excited(gets to play hookey tomorrow) Last nite we were driving around listening to 4/29/71. Minglewood Blues comes on and my son says"I like this one better than the newer one." I was fuckin' astounded! May bring some of those foam ear plugs for him. I don't know how loud these guys play. Today some of the shows in Grateful Dead history are from 66,77,80 and 94. Will fill you in tomorrow.

Well I did not get my wish. Saw DSO last nite and they played 6/14/80
Set One
Alabama>Pr. Land
FOD
El Paso
BEW
Uncle>Big River
Far from Me
Big RR Blues
LLR
Don't Ease me in

Set Two
Feel like a stranger
Ship of fools
Estimated>Drums>Space>Lost Sailor>St. of Circumstance>Stella>GDTRFB>Good Lovin'
Encore OMSN

What an odd setlist. I found the show on the archive. It's there. Now onto my 1st time experience w/DSO. I went in with zero expectations. Good thing. What they do the do very,very well and they work their asses off to reproduce THE sound and they do a damn good job of it. I have heard people say "If you close your eyes..." No fuckin' way! I wanted to hear Grateful Dead music played well and with passion and they delivered. These guys are very talented musicans. I think the drummers impressed me the most they just KICKED ASS. The venue was great it held 975 people, the guy at the door was all excited he told me "We sold 600 Tix." After all this is Sacramento! My son and I sat front row balconey about 50 ft from the stage. Healy was right in front of us mixing for them. The sound was perfect. I wanted to ask Healy why he wasn't fuckin' with the Weir guys rig. Wink My son enjoyed Stella and Promised Land the most. I really enjoyed the whole thing. Would I plop down another 25 bucks to see them again? Sure. But it better be an early 70s show Wink Cool Smile

Glad you liked it filmore, hate to shoot down your dreams but DSO very rarely does anything pre '76, and i'm pretty sure they have never done anything pre '73. Evil or Very Mad

that's not true. I've seen them about 8 times and the first time I saw them do 12/15/72, and another time 10/17/72. Also saw them do 3/15/73 in Jackson WY. Very Happy They dont do any Europe 72, and not that much 72 in general but they do play 73 and 74 shows regularly.
They are playing NYE here in Baltimore. I think I'm going to go. Anyone else nearby Baltimore that may attend???

I dig DSO. A lot of individuals put them down, but if members of the ORIGINAL BAND think that they're good enough to sit in with, then who am I to judge? I've seen them probably close to 30 times, or more. They always have played a decent show for me.

I saw them in Portland, OR in May and they played two nights of the uncirculated Leguna Seca '88 shows. I had a GRATE time!

The guys are pretty nice, especially Barracco. He's always taken time out to give me a hug and catch up. Also, don't forgot that Eaton has the most shows outside of the Vault, and was the largest circulator of tapes from the mid-80s on.

They are playing here with DJ sitting in on Thanksgiving. I will more than likely be there. If you haven't given them a try, then I suggest that you do!

I admit, I have not seen these guys. Not opposed to it though.

So, what is the breakdown... I hear you guys mention "the jerry guy" or things like that. Is there an actual orchestra playing with them? Or is it a regular band with a few people in it?

There's as many members of DSO on stage as the Dead were that given night. There is no orchestra. Every time I have seen them they played at least 3-4 songs way better than expected.

Wow... this whole time I have been thinking it was an orchestral re-production of the shows... which would be kind of cool too.

So, do they sing? Or is that where they came up with the clever name from?

Yes, they sing and do it pretty well.
There are orchestras out there that play GD, I think there is a show on demonoid. I'm hoping I can see them play sometime, I like the idea. I think they go under "Dead Symphony"

DSO recreates Grateful Dead shows (with flaws and all). I've seen several shows where they do their own sets too. I am pretty positive that they all toured at one time. I do know that Rob (Bobby) Eaton is pretty infamous for taping. If you ever got a tape passed through the mail from Rob E. in the 80's/90's...that's where it came from. People may get down on them, for what they do, but I appreciate the fact that they keep the vibe alive.

Rob Eaton made KILLER FOB's of the 4/84 Hampton shows. I have some of his other recordings. He did a damn good job. I'm going to see DSO in DC at the 9:30 Club on Friday 11/7 - first show of the tour maaannn....

I saw them at the 9:30 club last night. For the most part IT FUCKING SUCKED!!!
It was the first show of the tour and was an original setlist - more like a practice session. [CENSORED] song selection..When there are so many good songs in the GD canon, why play Built To Last, Mr Charlie and Liberty? Ugh...
Only good part was pre-drums: Stephen>NFA>Stephen>Estimated>He's Gone>Gone jam (excellent melodic jamming that hinted of the Eleven and then devoleved into Chaos - reminded me of 5/12/80.) I think I'm done with them for a while and definately aint trekking to DC anymore to see them....too many poseurs in that expensive cesspool of government (although lots of hot chicks..)

Yeah that has always fired me up too, I have seen 3 original setlists and 2 of them were weak. Also, it drives me nuts when they have extra time after the show and play Revolution, Liberty, Dixie Down, etc. Confused

They are playing at Penn's Peak(amazing venue) in Jim Thorpe, PA the night before Thanksgiving, I'm there!!!

Exactly. I've seen them do amazing shows from 72, 73 and 77 and then ya get this! One original setlist I saw them do was really good, but this one and one other blew. But they have thier off nights, just like any other band. Kind of surpised that being deadheads, they choose to play some of the lesser GD songs. Have a good time at Penns Peak!

You can usually figure whether they will play one by looking at the past few setlists. They usually do a few tribute shows then an original. But an original setlist doesnt mean its always going to suck. I saw one in Baltimore maybe 1.5-2 years ago and it was really really good.

Going to see DSO tomorrow. It's going to be my fathers first time seeing them, I hope he likes it. As long as they don't play a weak original setlist I am going to be satisfied. I'll report back. Smile

They played an original setlist last night. Played a lot of pigpen era songs(cosmic charlie, st . stephen, dark star, the 11, new potato caboose(i think)). If I were to make a list of 25 songs I was hoping to hear they did not play one of them. It was still a good time and my father enjoyed it. Still a bummer.

Saw these guys for the first time last night... man, it was great. Way surpassing my expectations.
I do believe that the x-factor was achieved at a few points, including during the jammage in Cumberland.

They did a Dead Show...
07-21-72 Paramount Northwest Theatre, Seattle, Wa. (Fri)
1: Promised, Sugaree, B. T. Wind, Cumberland, Bobby McGee, Loser, Mexicali, China Cat> I Know You Rider, BIODTL, Stella Blue, Playin, Tennessee Jed
2: Casey Jones, Me & My Uncle, Deal, Jack Straw, He's Gone> Truckin> Drums> Other One> Comes A Time, Sugar Magnolia E: Ramble On
"WRS Prelude" tease before "Me & My Uncle" (They did not play the WRS tease)

I will definitely be seeing these guys again. I also met up with Morey, who can now confirm with his own two eyes that I am not the prince of darkness.

That sounds really fun. I would enjoy seeing a reproduction of an actual show. I should go check out some of their setlists, I wonder if I can find a recording of them on the intertubes somewhere. I have bit torrent software on my computer, maybe if I can get ahead in the next week or so I'll spend some time figuring it out. I just started grad school and what's been on my mind is I feel like I just dosed a sheet of grad school LOL. One day at a time Wink If I look at the semester or the next year and a half as a whole, I start to feel panicky.

Oh but I think Dark Star Orchestra plays in Chitown, which is not too far from me, that would be a good time.

LOL Kochman, the Prince of Darkness? Anyone who says hey, "let's have a forum that is not subject to all of the backbiting that comes with censorship and secrecy and all of that bullshit is ok in my book." I'm not sure what happened before in that other forum (I really don't care, actually) but you have really done something constructive over here. I really like the tone of the conversation over here. I appreciate that you told me that I can call you an asshole and I won't get banned for it Wink You rock!

I can not confirm nor deny this, as I thought I saw horns peaking out from under his ball cap (or maybe that was just the cookie I ate).

See, that's the side of his ball cap in the upper left hand corner. Does anybody else see the horn sticking out?

I caught the Orlando & St. Pete shows and would not hesitate a second to go see them again. Every time I've seen them, they've never failed to blow me away. This is me with John Kadlecik (a/k/a Jerry reincarnate)

I think you can DL their stuff on LMA... but let's be honest... you'd be better off just DLing the real thing and going to see the not-real thing in concert because you can't see the real thing in concert anymore and at least the not-real thing comes pretty damn close to being the real thing which is exactly what they are trying to do... for real.

DSO is all over the archive.
But, streaming shows is pretty disappointing, they sound nothing like they do as live......can only imagine how great the GD were in person Sad

If the cosmos line up right I will be in Asheville on Feb the 12th see DSO. It should be interesting cause the night before I am in Greenville seeing Slipknot (the metal band) and Coheed and Cambria. I think I'm goin to surprise my friend with tickets. She needs to get out and enjoy life a little.

I just got my tickets for the DSO show in Ashelville. I am rather pumped about this concert. My friend just saw them at Orlando House of Blues. He has done nothing but say good things.

I am leaving for Asheville once again. I only go there for concerts it seems. Hmm anyways DSO starts at 9 and I will be there. I am also positive that my state of mind will be a little overwhelmed. haha Wish me luck for I am goin with my friend Tal The Homicidal Maniac. He is a bass player in a "band" with me. Whenever he is looking for something crazy on bass I point him in the direction of TOO Phil bombs or Claypool.

Have a good time. Hopefully you'll see a recreation of an actual show. The Orange Peel is a cool venue, in a cool ass town with great food and brewpubs. That, plus the mountains and rivers that surround it, make Asheville a mighty fine place IMO!

2009-02-12 Orange Peel Asheville, N.C. DSO

Soundcheck
Jack Straw (I was outside the main entrance and all I could see was Rob on keys. It sounded like a post retirement 70's Jackie...It was bad ass)

Set 1
Tuning
Cold Rain and Snow
Lazy Lightning
Here Comes Sunshine
Mama Tried>Mexicali Blues
Mr. Charlie
Cassidy
When Push Comes To Shove
Midnight Hour

Set 2
Tuning
Help>Slip>Liberty
Lost Sailor>
Saint of Circumstance>
DARK STAR>
Drums>Space>
All Along The Watchtower>
Brokedown Palace>
I Need A Miracle>
Shakedown Street

Encore
Stage Banter
Ripple

This was an original set. The highlights in the first set was Here Comes Sunshine, Mama>Mexicali, and Cassidy. Here Comes Sunshine had a crazy amount of X Factors. I am not sure if they will hold up on tape as well as live, but they were there. Cassidy was nice and jammed out. The actual jam felt like they were trying to go into something else but ended up back at Cassidy.

Highlights of the second set were Help>Slip. I wouldn't say Liberty was on par after a bad ass Help. Then the Slipknot kicked ssecond set into full throttle only to come back down with Liberty. I was talking to a guy and we were both quasi bitching about missing the Franklin's Tower that we were hoping for. Sailor>Saint was great, even if Sailor seemed to drag on for a hot minute, once they got into Saint the energy of everyone went back to 11. Ahh but the jamming doesn't stop as the transition to Dark Star was extremely unexpected. This was a great reading of Dark Star. It had that funky feel. It did get spacey but still funky, very danceable indeed. Also, I would like to note that while we were watching Dark Star Orchestra perform Dark Star, we were drinking Dark Star Stout. I believe that would be Dark Star to the third power. (If you are at a bar and see Dark Star Stout order that shit) The next highlight would be Shakedown to close the set. This was a Shakedown that wouldn't stop. The entire crowd danced their asses off once those first notes were played. Also, I would like to note that I "called" Shakedown during set break. Then during the encore intermission I got a girls phone number right before the stage banter happened. During this banter Rob declared it was an original set (you would be surprised how many people were telling me it was a 70's show, even with Lazy River in the first set.) After the band played Ripple we walked outside in the cold yet fresh Asheville air.

post script,
On the way home we managed to get lost on 26 leading us to Spartanburg, which is about 30-45 minutes out of the way. Funny stuff because right before that my friend got off on an exit that would have taken us to Charlotte even as I was telling him not to get off on that exit. We somehow gained time on that [CENSORED] up of the road but lost time later when back on 26. Yet another funny story. When we got our tickets from Will Call we walked back to the van to smoke a joint. There was a guy that kept pacing back and forth on the sidewalk as we were smoking it. When we got out I realized it was Rob Barraco talking on his cell phone.

Souns like you had a good time... I think the H>S>Liberty would have put a bad taste in my mouth, but sounds like the Shakedown & DS more than made up for it.

I don't really understand why they do original sets of cover songs? But, whatever...

The fine will be levied at a time and place of our choosing. Sounds like a great original show, other than the Liberty.
That song wasnt bad in the context of the GD doing it in the 90's, but I cant figure out why DSO would include it in an original show. Do they actually enjoy playing it?? Buzzkill...I saw them at the 9:30 Club back in Dec and they played an original show and ended the 1st set with Masterpice>Liberty after playing a pretty decent set. Then after a brilliant pre-drums it was disco Dancin>SOTM>Throwin Stones>Lovelight. Christ on a Crutch!!!!! Why?????

Did you quaff any brews in Asheville?? if you went here:

A chinaman pissed on your rug Dude? Sorry had to comment on the brand spanking new avatar of yours. Honestly, I don't think they enjoy playing it. IMO I think they all know it that well. Yes, I do deserve to be bitched at about the brokedown attics mix up. In my defense those are 2 songs I never listen to. I don't know why I enjoy them, yet never listen to them.

They ended up performing the famous 9/18/87 last night....the entire time I knew it was an '87 or '88 show, was a little disappointed with the very short first set but smoking versions of Bucket, Sugaree, and Bird Song. Set two opened up with a nasty Shakedown, Terrapin was hot, once Watch Tower came on I knew Dew would be next and damn did they crush it! Made the whole show! I can't remember what the extra two songs were after the show but they were weak and I actually walked out during the second one....(No Liberty, thank god)

Going there was a reminder of how much I hate Jersey....hate it, hate it, hate it.....traffic patterns and the highway system is very weird. I got lost on the way home and it took me like 6 people until I was able to find someone who spoke clear english and had any idea where they were going....I mean I was looking for Route-80....I knew it was close...how hard could it be for a local to explain how to get there?(three people gave me [CENSORED] directions....ohhhh yeahhhhhh just take a right at the light Rolling Eyes ....) [CENSORED] you Jersey.

I headed there solo and used it as my little escape (didn't tell anyone where I was going Cool ) The place was a freak fest, but I was the biggest freak, lol.....Got in there right when the doors opened and just stood in one spot, looking non 'heady' , listening to my i-pod and grooved along until show time Smile.... Drank a 6 pack of beer along the ride and ate some Saltines smotherd in marujuana butter when I got there....so I really don't remember too much....I was falling asleep at the wheel before I even headed back into PA...luckily I made it home.


P.S. 12/28/90 Foolish Heart was forced on me and I gotta say it was nothing special. Decent outro but that's it.

Jeez, it only took you like 8 times during 2 months of me asking to get that crappy answer?
Guess I'll think twice next time.

Hello All,
This is my 1st post, I have been lurking and reading for some time and really enjoying the posts and topics. I went to see DSO for the 1st time in Montclair NJ
the other night and like Gopher pinpointed the show to be either 87-88 by walkin
blues. They did a really good job of getting the time period sound out there.
Sorry you hate Jersey so much Gopher, travellin to the Rectum all those years was no prize either I will let you know but, the great thing is the boys always ripped it up in both our states! What did you think of that theater? That place was really cool, I had never seen a show there before and will definitely go back again.
Shakedown was fantastic. The 2 extra songs were hurts me too and how sweet it is.
Having never seen them before and actually I have always thought it was a orchestra playing Dead tunes when I found out what they really do I was intrigued
at what I might actually see and I must say it was a great time. I went with a couple pals who were in town from Cali who had also never seen them before. thanks for the great site and a place to hang out and discuss the worlds greatest band!

Welcome aboard sir! Glad you had a good time at the DSO show. I have to say, pound for pound regarding ticket price, they are pretty easily the best thing going. I didn't see "The Dead" of course... but at $100/ticket... I wouldn't see anyone (except maybe one last Pink Floyd tour that will never happen).

Welcome! That's funny you thought they were an orchestra - I would see them listed in our indie paper and thought the same thing until someone clued me in several years ago. I saw them 2 weeks ago at Delfest. Did an acoustic then electric set with lots of guests.

Hey Kochman,
thanks for the welcome! I agree with you I just couldn't see shelling out over $100
to see The Dead and really have never shelled out that much to see anyone hence my lack of live shows in the past 10 years. I was lucky enough to catch Floyd at JFK in philly circa 87-88? kinda fuzzy on exact year but, it was a crappy eerie drizzling night and Floyd ripped though echoes to open the show! I could have died and gone to heaven at that point. I went to go see the other ones way back in 2000 but that is the only reincarnate of the boys I have ever witnessed. Candy
did a complete weather report suite so I was pleased to have witnessed that.
IMHO DSO is a great thing, they did it for me as far as semi putting me back in that special zone. you know when the lights drop and the band walks on you and your buddies listening to tuning noodles spitting out opener possibles that was a good feeling I would like to have again and I will continue to see them as long they continue to feed that feeling.

Hell yeah man glad you could hear what I heard.
As far as the theatre goes...I was not crazy for it...nowhere to smoke!!!Confused Other than that though I thought the sound was pretty good...seems like security was over staffed, just hawk eyeing every little move.
Yeah Philly is kind of shitty too...I am a country boy outside of Scranton, PA....NEPA is just 'home' to me....i'm outta my element when I head to NJ. I thought it was weird too that in the parking garage I parked in, after I payed in the machine they gave me back four one-dollar coins...I didn't even know they existed Shocked
I didn't have a lighter on me and before the show I seen bass player outside and bummed a light off of him, he had his lighter on a leash Laughing

I'm actually headed out to see DSO here tonight in Stroudsburg, PA...can't wait!

Hey Gopher,
I am actually not in my element either in a semi city enviroment like Montclair was but, I have been there multiple times before so it was very familiar to me as far as layout. It's funny you mentioned the bass player with lighter on leash! I have a
old family house in NEPA in wayne county above Honesdale on a small lake so I have spend alot of time up in your neck and think it's awesome. Hope you had a good time tonite and please post a setlist.

Wayne county? That's where I live....above Honesdale...i'm guessing Beach Lake, Damascus or Prescott area? I'm in Lake Ariel.
Got to see a one drummer approach for the first time ever...and it smoked! At first I was disappointed when I seen only one kit was out, but wow they were on fire...sadly I had to leave after Comes A Time because of work....my guess was September 1972(i'm surprised how many people I over heard guessing '72).awesome setlist, was thrilled that 2 outta the first 3 Bobby songs were Jack Straw and Black Throated Wind...both were played unbelievable, the night was filled with X-factor!

OK I just checked the date and it was 10/19/72...

Promised Land, Tennessee Jed, Jack Straw, Don't Ease Me In, Black Throated Wind, Sugaree, Mexicali Blues, Bertha, El Paso, China Cat Sunflower-> I Know You Rider, Beat It On Down The Line, Dire Wolf, Around & Around, Casey Jones

Big River, Friend Of The Devil, Me & My Uncle, Bird Song, Truckin'-> Drums-> The Other One-> He's Gone-> The Other One, Greatest Story Ever Told, Comes A Time, Not Fade Away-> Goin' Down The Road Feelin' Bad-> Not Fade Away


This was my 13th time seeing DSO and it may have very well been the hottest performance I have ever seen....

Nice show! That St Louis run was smokin. I actually saw DSO do 10/17/72 once. Personally, whenever I see one drum kit set up at their shows, I get excited because it will be an early 70's show.

Gas was pretty similar...cigarettes on the other hand were 2 dollars more a pack in the dirty Jerz.

The only 'problem' I have about seeing one drum kit is the predictability of the setlist...you know right from the start you won't have any chance to hear a variety of post '74 songs.

Yeah, but it guarantees you wont hear Sunrise, I Will Take You Home or a 6 song first set...

.

That is an awesome set you got to see, thank god you waited out the comes a time.
My house is in the great village of Lookout PA on Duck harbor Pond, we have
owned a place there for thirty years and I am the only one left really still going all the time. I live on Lake Hopatcong in NJ which if you have to be in the Garden State it's not a bad place to rest your bones. My next DSO show will be at
Govenor island in NYC as that should be a trip! You have to take from my route
3 ferries to get there and after many brownies Very Happy it should be a wild night!

So Gopher, do you live near the Poconos? My buddy has a cabin up there at Silver Lake, north of Marshalls Creek. Beautiful up there and great fishing!!

Why? Have you ever seen them? $10 a show is a pretty ridiculously low bar to set.
Despite their Dead cover aspect, they are a hard working, touring band. I have no problem paying $20-$25 to see them. It's always a ton of fun. The Dead would have to drop their price to $40 however to have me grace their audience... Laughing

Not familar with Silver Lake..I guess my area can be considered the poconos...but really I love about 30-40 miles north west of the Poconos. I like this area better anyway....nothng like living on a road named after a lake, in Lake Township and in a 'city' named after a lake....but I dont actually live on a lake Sad

I like the way you think re: one drummer shows....it's funny too because I got burnt....thought for sure the set was going to end with Around and Around so I went out for a smoke....five minutes later I heard Casey Jones from outside...always wanted to catch an early 70s Casey Jones too.

ikapon - That's cool you live on Duck Harbor...Went fishing up there last winter with no success....thought it was weird to see houses(even though only a few) on a state owned lake. The area up there really is beautiful.

Nice setlist. Glad you had a good time.

DSO... you know... I have a hard time with cover bands, because I want them to be more original... but dammit, I just love the GD so much and these guys make it work... I give them an exception. I would love to see them next time they are down my way.

To start, Donna and her band played a quick set....really fun to hear: The Way You Do The Things You Do, Shakedown Street and St. Stephen.

Keller Williams was boring....

From what I remember(stooopid xanax) DSO was being DSO....played great music....this was the very first time outta like 13 shows that I was finally able to guess the show.....Once I heard Cold Rain and Snow in the 2nd set I KNEW it was 11/4/77....I started telling people around me and they were looking at my like I was nuts Laughing

While Donna's band was playing DSO's lead guitarist was like 4 feet away with me chatting with a fan....I wanted to tell him to keep the train rolling for years to come and wanted to talk live GDs with him....inquire about his favorite shows/years...he kinda walked away while I wasn't listening, oh well.

The venue was very small for an out door mini-festi.. But they did have Hop Devil on tap, one of my favorite beers...., but the amount of people there was pretty much just exactly perfect..... I figured there would be lots of drugs floating around so I brought a decent amount of money....good thing nothin' was shaken because I would probably be in jail now, lol.

I really want to hear these guys play a show from the 90...i've heard some recordings and the guitarist uses his MIDI pretty well....

Seeing DSO this Tues in Reno. Praying for one drum kit Wink Saw them last year and had a great time. Easily worth 20 bills.

DSO are playing Rams Head Live in Baltimore on 12/30 and 12/31. They played NYE in Baltimore last year too. I think I'm going to the 12/30 show, as we always know the hottest shows are before NYE Laughing Laughing The venue is kind of weird (iffy sound, kind of slick/new and down near the touristy part of town around the Inner Harbor) but it's a 5-10 minute drive or a cheap taxi ride. I really enjoy DSO - saw them at Delfest last May where they did an acoustic set then electric with various guests including Del McCoury on Dark Hollow and THe Race is On.

Another kick ass show from DSO
4/26/83...Phil. Spectrum
Set I
Shakedown Street
Ming Blues
TLEO
MAMU-MEX
Maybe You Know
West L.A. Fadeaway
Bro. Esau
Roses
Let It Grow
Set II
Help>Slip>Franklins
Women Smarter>Drums>Space>Truckin'>Nobody's Fault Jam>DewThrowing Stones>NFA
U.S. Blues
Had a great time.High energy played with unbridled passion from these guys. I have concluded after last night's show that they are not trying to duplicate The Grateful Dead-Rather they have their own take and approach to the shows. The venue was sweet. Sat about fifty feet away-center. Sound mixed perfectly for the few hundred folks that wre there.If you dig The Grateful Dead...if given the chance you will enjoy these guys as well.
Highlights-S.S opener was nice. LIG ripped the roof off the joint. The whole second set had the place rockin' Was cool to hear Nobdy's Fault after Truckin'
After the show was over they brought out the chick and they played Bye and Bye from the Kingfish album. She sang harmony with Bertrando. She sings better than Mrs. Godcheaux imo. Anyway looking forward to them coming to my neck of the woods again Cool Cool

Awesome!! glad you had a good time. Where did you see them?
I caught this show "In real time" back in 83- awesome show. The SBD is also very crisp - def worth checking out.

I had a feeling you saw this show Cool Saw them at the Grand Sierra [CENSORED] in Reno. Great room. Probably about 400>500 people there. I had to settle grabbing the AUD of this show from the archive. I did give the SB a listen and it is very nice, but the AUD ain't bad. Yeah I've said it before I'd plop down 20-25 bucks anytime to see these guys. My kid had a blast as well. He loved the Shaksdown opener Cool

I think what makes these shows so enjoyable for me is they are usually in small venues (at least in these parts) and their sound is mixed perfectly. I saw Healy before the show at the board. Guess it doesn't hurt having him around.
