It was yummy Susea! Definately worth not going to the bathroom for 8 + hours cause you got you a good spot to see it all from too!!!!!

My apologies to the Mule, gentlemen my arms were just damn tired by the time y'all came out even though I was holding out and on just for you.....

The show was sick, here's my VERY quick, general synopsis.

Warren's million miles from yesterday kicked us off with an amazing solo tune. the guitar jam following was pretty spectacular as well.
I made my way back up to our seats for Popper, which I saw last year down at Wanee. The song Everything was pretty killer, but the rest of the set didn't blow me away. I'm not complaining, just throwing out my opinion.
TAJ MAHAL's set was absolutely amazing, I made plenty of dancing room to the front left of the soundboard and shook it on down.
Marty Stuart hit the stage when I got back up the stairs during setbreak and got me out of my seat as soon as I sat down.
New ORLEANS SOCIAL CLUB tore the roof off the civic center. and oh yeah" sorry to anyone I accidentally hit around me on the floor." we opened up some dancin room and took it back down creole style.
Dave came on, and was it me? or was he pretty f*@#ed up? he started talking about the tech dosing his water and elephants coming to eat off his face. aside from that, Mule and Dave's Cortez was the best version I've ever heard live. It even tops Mule's Cortez I caught at Red Rocks a few months back.
Ya'll saw the mule setlist earlier, what more can I say? wow!!!!!!! Warren knows how to throw one heck of a Christmas Party. That's year 5 in a row for me. Come on xmas jam 2007!!!!!!!

Don't know how effed up DM's was but it sure did seem like he killed the dancing vibe for the hour he was solo. Maybe cause folks were too busy holding up their cell phones.....

Warren's Opening Set:
Very enjoyable. Million Miles From Yesterday was a great way to cap off the show. It was good seeing Audley Freed play (only appearance of the night).

John Popper Project:
Didn't do anything for me..and I'm not a Blues Traveler hater. Drums weren't mixed very well and the entire set was a bit underwhelming...Col Bruce came out and sang Time Is Free, though I was disappointed they didn't play the riff after Col sings "Time is Free."

Taj Mahal:
Good set. I heard hints of other blues guys, especially some Howlin' Wolf type singing. He played with a ton of energy and got the crowd going.

Marty Stuart & Fabulous Superlatives:
These guys were smokin'. Marty is very impressive on the guitar and mandolin, his guitarist Kenny Vaughan is a fantastic player. Tight vocal harmonies, incredible twin guitar licks...IMO the first band that REALLY got it going.

New Orleans Social Club:
Opened up with the Meters' Look-Ka Py Py. These guys delivered as expected. They brought the funk. Their cover of Fortunate Son was very heartfelt, as Warren gave them props. Pianist Henry Butler was nothing short of extraordinary...I'd never heard harmonies on the piano quite like that. Very impressive.

Dave Matthews:
The set definitely had its moments. It was no surprise to see who the crowd was here for. Plenty of "Davespeak" which was alluded to above. A solo DM performance wasn't up to par with the previous 2 acts IMO.

Gov Mule:
Shorter set than I expected. Cortez was great with DM. Watchtower was a slown down version played with a swing feel. Warren played the main Hendrix licks. Leaving Trunk was very much like how Taj originally performed it...very cool to see. ScoMule with Brandon Bayliss was very impressive.
Sugaree was a highlight for me and I Shall Be Released was an epic way to end the show. Warren mentioned something about the Last Waltz before bringing much of the guests to perform on I Shall Be Released.

Yeah I wanted more Mule as well! I could have lived w/o both John Popper and Dave Matthews but I understand Warren is trying to expand his fan base. They had a lot of talent there that I would have loved to see/hear more of. Second song in with Kevin Kinney, Audley Fried, Randall Bramlett and Mickey Rafael, wanted more from all those fellas for sure. More from Colonel Bruce as well, Dave Schools, poor Andy didn't get to play much....though he was having a good time just taking pictures of everybody else!

http://www.citizen-times.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=200661216025&theme=C HRISTMASJAM

Every act was great. It was a fun, fun weekend. Sure a song or two I might not have loved but I loved almost all of it and I thought it was the best Jam ever. The New Orleans Social Club is a new band - I should say Supergroup - but they were fantastic and in a lot of ways were the highlight of the night. I totally enjoyed the Popper/Logic project and loved that song Lap Dancer and Marty and his fabulous, fabulous band was extra great. Dave was excellent. I mean that. Taj Mahal, where have you been my whole life? (I found me a new band to listen to.) Everyone was top notch, every special guest and every act/band.

Mule was on fire and didn't stop the freight train from the first note to the last. (Well, except for Soulshine which was more like a caboose. LOL.) Really, it was so great to see the guys jump on stage when Warren and Dave were doing this bit of a jam intro into Cortez. It was a seamless transition from Dave to Mule which was a smart move. Often by the time Mule gets on half the place empties out. This year I would say only about 1000 - 1500 people left after they finally realized that Dave had left the stage for the evening. The place was dancing even when the lights came up.

This jam is one for the books. I believe the whole jam is up on etree.

I'm tired and will write more tomorrow.

It was a Christmas present that kept getting better and better the more it was unwrapped. So much to experence in one evening. It did not seem like 7-1/2 hours. We felt so good on Sunday that we did Biltmore.

I had a great time at the show, but I felt sorry for the people who were sitting in the first two rows in the upper section. A lot of people stood at the railing on the upper section to watch the show, which completely blocked the views for the people in the first two rows. The guy in the front row of our section spent a better part of the night asking the people in front of him to move, so that he could see. They would move, but two minutes later, the same people would be back, blocking his view again. He tried to get the ushers involved, but they couldn't keep the people away, either. That guy eventually gave up and left. So another guy takes his place in the same seats. Someone stood in front of him, and he asked him to move. I don't know if he insulted the guy when he asked him to move, but they were about to come to blows. The guy sitting in the seat ended up calling 911 from his cell phone to get the cops over there, apparently the guy who was blocking his view threatened him, and got a bunch of his buddies to stand with him and intimidate the guy who was sitting. The cops eventually ejected the guy. This whole scenario went on for about an hour, and was really distracting. When we left,we saw the guy who was kicked out standing in front of the civic center, I guess he was waiting for the guy who got him kicked out.

That's exactly why I wouldn't sit there. It's much better to sit halfway up so you won't have all that distraction of people walking by you or just standing there. I could see that going on from where I was. I don't sit at the end of the aisle for the same reason. I felt fortunate to be in a great section where everyone got along.

this type of story is truly upsetting to hear & it seems to happen too much at shows ......sad that rudeness leads to altercations at a place where the music is really representitive of the exact opposite of such behaviors.........where is the peace & love that the ABB was founded on & that WARREN represents in his music,charity & in being an all around decent human being----this stuff doesn't belong........ i hope the rest of you were in good company & able to enjoy,what sounds like a wonderful evening of fine music!!!

We were in section 222. We were in the fourth or fifth row up, just high enough up that our view was not blocked. I'm not a fire marshal, but I would think that having that many people stand at the railings is a fire hazard.

There was a much more visible police presence at the Jam this year. In the five years that I have been attending, I have never seen so many of them actually walk inside the arena, they usually just stayed outside by the concourse. I'm not saying this is either good or bad, just an observation.

Well I have to say, this years jam being my sixth in a row, was as, Chris Farley use to say
AWEEEEEESOMMMMMM!!!!!!! It amazes me each year gets better. That says alot. Warren made me proud to be a Child of the Earth and he pulled my Weery Soul from this hole. Everything ran so smooth. When each years performers are announced, you think of them as their band. But its totally different when members from all the bands join up and play. You get a whole different perspective of their performing. I have to admit, I got a little sleepy during Dave Matthew acoustic set. Near the end of his set Warren joined him. That woke me up alittle. Warren switched to his electric guitar on their second song. My friends and I wondered this is a little different. Dave on a acoustic and Warren on electric. Like a magician pulling a rabbit out of their hat the other members of the Mule snuck on stage, then a snap of the finger, the Dave Matthews set slammed into Govt Mule. Slammed it was. A blink of an eye the crowd was on their feet in disbelief. Where did the Mule come from. Warren pulled the wool over my eyes. I thought this years sound was unbelievable. Crystal clear...........
I thought last years sound from the Mule set was a little distorted. The Mules set was what I was wanting too. We enjoyed the Soulshine raggae style was pretty unigue. Dave and The Mule sliding into Cortez couldnt have been better. Thanks Warren for a great jam. You are the best.


I found this on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hF4s-RsbAtA


It was a very entertaining and long evening. I would say the time of this video was around 1:30 to 2:00 am. We finally go back to our hotel around 3:40am. Catching a cab, again this year, was like trying to catch that lunker bass......it just wasnt going to happen. Our hotel was through the tunnel, we had walked from the Civic Center and the grateful cabbie snatched us up before we entered the tunnel.........man, what a night!!!

I think that guy was sitting below us. I saw the blue shirts gathering around.I will say this year their wasnt nowhere near the amount of people standing on the rail and sitting in the aisles. We sat on the very top row in the backleft. No problems seeing it all from there. The sound was outstanding.
