Yes! I was at the Charleston show last night. Fantastic!!!!

This band is unreal- and it is a band in the collective sense of the word. In no way is this the Derek and Susan show. Everyone is featured and featured throughout.

Originals that I recognized were:

Love Has Something Else To Say
Learn How To Love
Midnight In Harlem
Nobody's Free
Don't Drift Away
Bound For Glory

Covers
Just Kissed My Baby (The Meters)
Manic Depression (Oteil sang it- jazzy extended middle section- Derek quoted Coltrane's "Lonnie's Lament" at the beginning of his solo)
Comin' Home (Delaney and Bonnie)
Sing A Simple Song (Sly and the Family Stone)
Uptight (Everything's Alright)- Stevie Wonder
That Did It (Bobby Bland)
Space Captain- complete with it busting into a gospel beat at the end of Derek's solo. Oteil was dancing like mad

There is probably a few more tunes I'm forgetting but man what an awesome show. They actually opened with an instrumental little funky jam before busting into Love Has Something Else To Say.

Some nice avant garde, jazz moments with the horns.

For the encore, Kebbi Williams on tenor sax and JJ Johnson on drums- just the two of them playing off each other for about 5 min straight. It got out there- before the rest of the band joined them.

Strong stuff all around. The band was smiling and having a great time. Derek is diggin the horn section- that much is obvious. Great time, great band. The sky is the limit for them. They are so incredible versatile- they can go in whatever direction they want. Complete freedom.

God Damn that sounds awesome!

Now I'm even more pissed that I missed the Highline presale!

I just saw the TTB this past October, but it sounds like they have been practicing and putting together a real nice set.
