I'm liking what I'm seeing. Derek is back next to Gregg, and he has been very engaged with Gregg, at one point even jamming back forth guitar to organ- very cool. Other ob.s:
I've never seen Derek play in a t-shirt
Warren is huge- yikes, easy chief
Gregg looks great, and his voice is solid and strong
Jamoe is actually getting some shots on Moogis- less Butch, more Jamoe.
Speaking of Butch, right now he is wearing a camera on his head. LMAO. who would of thought anybody could talk him into that- "here Butch, put this on your head". So far, so good. They just finished a nice Blind Willie. Enjoy the run folks. It's going to be fun. They just strike me as more focused.

I guess I've seen enough of Warren that his size is not unexpected. Wasn't Derek back next to Gregg last year as well?

No, at least not in Macon. As for Warren, I just worry bout the dude. Got to keep him healthy. Maybe it's the purple shirt.

I thought he was at the New York shows but I could definitely be wrong.

I first clicked on an old show tonight; seeing too much of the band when i thought to myself "Didn't Derek wear that shirt last year?" No that there's anything wrong with it

I've seen Derek wear some music related t-shirts before. A Junior Wells shirt comes to mind.

How about Gregg sporting the glasses?

I thought Gregg was really good in the first set, not quite as good in the 2nd, but they all finished real well and tight down the stretch.

Loved the first set. Thought the second set, while very good, was more average by their standards, but average ABB is still pretty exceptional.

Moogis streaming picture quality is best I remember seeing and I have old equipment and it still came through very well. Only one very quick second set freeze, near perfect. First set had some issues, but compared to last year opening night it was a major step up. Moogis team will keep working to make everything better I have no doubt if the 2nd set is any indication tonight.

It's not the purple shirt, our beloved Brother is as heavy as we've ever seen him but he sure did slam it tonight!!
Jaimie looks like he lost weight and he looks good.
What a superb opening night!

I always look foward to the special guests at the Beacon, You get to see some great musicians really jamming and having a great time. I have to admit that I reaaly enjoyed seeing no guests tonight too! It was great to see the Allman Brothers Band do all the work tonight

I think that Derek is next to Gregg primarily to be Gregg's cue when it is his turn to come in. Last year Warren gave obvious stares and head nods Gregg's direction. Maybe they felt this year because Warren does so much singing sometimes sharing lyrics in the same song as Gregg plus Warren's focused effort on what he is playing at the moment if soloing, that it would be best to not have Warren giving these cues, but rather Derek.

If you watch, when Derek walks towards Gregg it is usually Gregg's turn to do something, a feature on the keys or a verse.

Okay. So far the sound is great, but the picture is freezing like a mother. AWTNM - killer Derek, but "pictures". Frustrating!!! Be back when things are happy.

Not good. Still getting frozen screen. Butch does have that silly contraption on his head again, but what he is really hearing is "cha-ching". That's the sound of all those $25.00 refunds he will be issuing to irate single night subscribers. Bummer for him. And Windy and me too right now!!
