It looks like there is a good chance the Brothers are going to pull out a Whipping Post at Starlake since it has been a while I wouldn't mind hearing Ratdog doing Eyes or Scarlet>Fire either

Very good setlists. I'm not the biggest Ratdog fan, but I would be happy with a setlist like that for Jones Beach next week.

What were the lengths of the sets? Who opened? Any thoughts from someone who was there?

Ratdog opened, but this was a "co-bill" time wise. They each played about 2 hours, Show started near 6:30. ABB finished at 11:00. Lots of Ratdog fans in the house. I was not one of them. Keyboard player, sax player, and bass player are good. Kimock is a talented guy, but from where I was sitting he was low in the mix and under-utilized. Bobby was busy noodling a little bit much IMO. I gave Ratdog a shot, but the fact that they're opening the rest of the tour will probably cause me to skip PNC. They just aren't my cup of tea.

Anyhoo, ABB was great as always. Ron Holloway guested on Soulshine and Same Thing, which was great. AMAZING jams at the end of Maydell & Wasted words were my highlights.

Ratdog opened at 6:30 and played until about 8:20
ABB played from 9 until 10:59 just beating the curfew.

expanding the ABB setlist:

The Same Thing >
Oteil Solo with Drums,>Jabuma, then Butch moved to timpani and Oteil took butch's kit.>
The Same Thing

Also correcting the ABB set list : Ron Holloway (Tenor sax) sat in on Soulshine and The Same Thing.
Gregg sat out, Little School Girl

Ratdog was really good with Steve Kimoch still filling in for Mark, I talked to some folks
at the show and Mark Karan is very seriously ill, please send him your prayers. Steve was
great and this was probably the best Ratdog show that I have seen (only a handful though)
Great setlist: Playing in the Band was great (both times) and the finish was great. knockin
on heaven's door was sublime, Playing>Sugar Magnolia was really good also. I really enjoyed
Ratdog.

Really good set from ABB as well. Hot Lanta was a smokin opener, AWTNM featured a burning
solo from Derek, Maydell was great, Warren's vocal was terrific. And the wah solo was great
very funky. Otiel was kickin on his bass solo. Really enjoyed Ron on Soulshine.
JaBuma/Oteil was really great. 4 drummers kicking it in the butt.
Melissa was a four piece Gregg on acoustic guitar, Warren on electric, with OTeil and Butch.
It was so wonderful. Jessica was burning off the wall also. Really a fun set.

Can't wait for Pixberg tomorrow.

Good to see EZM,Fred,Jim,Jan,Farmer Maggie, UncleJon and the rest of the crew, and of course
Rob and Bill at the Hittin the note booth.

now to wind down and get some sleep before tommorrows trip!

Enjoyable evening last night. Beth, myself and my nephew Kevin, stop by Okra's before coming to the show and I had my ususl Alligator Bites, Fried Okra and Abita beer. Then on to the show. Ratdog, was alright, but really not my "cup of tea", also think Bobby was noodling a little bit too much (got a little "samey" after awhile).

The ABB did a good classic set, which I was glad they did as it was nephew first time seeing the ABB, and I think he was pretty impressed. The ABB certainly had more energy than DMB who my nephew took me to see last Saturday, Why even Miss Bethie, got into listening to the ABB last night, and really enjoyd the show, I know she was certainly impressed with Derek's playing.

Ran into several last people last night. Jim, John, EZM, Chad and his Dad, Rob & Bill at HTN and sure there are others who's names escape me at the present (just getting around to my 1st cup of coffee).

To those of y'all heading up to Pittsburg, have a safe trip and fun time this evening.

Not much needs to be added to John's thoughts above...I'm not usually a big Ratdog fan, but I came away thinking I'd just been to my best Dead show since seeing the Grateful Dead...better than many The Dead or TOO shows.

ABB set was pretty good too - it would have been nice to get that extra 1/2 hour, but I can't complain, the 2 hours we got was pretty much smokin'....

Oh, and for all the folks we know who were hopping for the front row tix from the HTN subscription raffle....Emily was disappointed she didn't pull a ticket belonging to someone she knew....

Off to Pixburg in a couple of hours....

Well you guys summed it up pretty well. I ended up enjoying Ratdog a lot, which was kind of a surprise. I thought their performance was solid and I've recently become a fan of Kimock so that was cool. As for the Allman Brothers I thought it was another solid show. I agree that Hot 'Lanta was a smokin' opener. They were really on fire for the first couple of songs. The band continued to play well, but the setlist didn't appeal to me too much. A lot of the songs had great jams and I still enjoyed them, but the songs have never done much for me. Maydell, Leave My Blues at home, Good Morning Little School Girl, the Same Thing. LMBAH has the cool ascending riff and the same thing has a nice punch, but they don't really interest me when they play them. This doesn't mean I didn't love the show though. As usual, even if I didn't like the song, they stretched it out and added solos that were fantastic. Personally I think the band is as good as I've seen them...and i'm looking foward to Camden.

Where's everyone meeting in Pittsburgh ?

Caught the show last night and I thought both sets were great.

I think Derek has opened up more with the Brothers.

This was the best ABB set I've seen in a while.

Like to see Warren sit in with Ratdog or Bob play w/ the ABB.

I thought both bands and sets were excellent. It seemed like Derek really took the lead. Warren, of course, still ROCKED. But it was nice to see Derek take command and dominate at lot of the solos last night. It's amazing, ABB just keeps sounding better and better, it's like they read each other's minds up there.

Just wish it would have lasted longer!

Last show of this trip for me & Mash535. It was a good show all around. Enjoyed Ratdog, this was my first GD splinter group concert. Slight noodling and lack of Kimock solo time were the only minor problems in a very decent set. ABB were great as always. The best Allman Brothers concert is always the one you are at now! The shortened playing time had a definite effect, but not enough to mar the great performances from everyone.

It was great to see so many people from the site and to meet so many new bros & sisters in this extended family I didn't even know I had before Wanee!

Thanks all for a great time & enjoy Pixberg and beyond y'all...

Most summer sets with an opener have been 2 hours, I don't think we got ripped off by having
a two hour opener, Ratdog just started earlier than openers that played shorter sets.

It's all good.

You're not gonna get more than 2 hours in the summer unless it is "An evening with" show.

peace
John

I echo the comments on last night. I enjoyed the Ratdog set very much--more than I did when I saw them a few times in, maybe, '03 or '04.

It was so good to see everyone there. I'm especially glad to see you all posting because there was a very ugly accident (car upside down against a tree and on a police car) just outside the venue and I was hoping that none of us were involved.

I'm not a fan of "Maydell", but the jam at the end was one of the highlights of the evening for me. "Jessica" was fun.

As far as the set length--the weekend's set times were 8:30 - 11:00 curfew. Last night was 9:00 - 11:00 curfew.

Well, my little run of HTW/HTN family and shows is over. What a great four days, though!

My thoughts exactly on Ratdog's set being cut short for the Allman Bros.

one or two other things...
It was really nice to meet you Fred and see everyone else. Always nice to chat with people on the forum.

Nissan kept somewhat bright lights on by the aisles for the entire show. They were obnoxious and killed the atmosphere...for me at least. Not to mention nissan/live nation were walking around constantly looking for people to take out.

Ratdog fans are reallly, really weird. wow

I was sorry the show was shorter as well, but atleast Ratdog was good, so it wasn't too bad.

It was nice to have no repeats in the setlist between sunday and Tuesday.

If this was your first Greatful Dead splinter group experience, you have got to get out to a Phil and Friends show. Far superior to Ratdog IMO.

excellent shows by both bands. those who had doubts or problems with ratdog should not. it takes a lot of confidence by the ABB to put a band like ratdog out there to open a a show. they rocked and had the crowd on thier collective feet most of the show. anyone notice john molo at the soundboard last night during the ratdog set? kimock was impressive and from where i was sitting he was loud in the mix.
THE ABB - what can i say? another fantastic, smokin' show from beginning to end. derek was the loudest in the mix i've ever heard. that was cool. warren and derek are the best 1-2 guards the the league. i see them ever summer, usually once at the beacon ever year as well and still they amaze me. gregg looks great and sounded wonderful last night. and i haven't been hearing about any lyric flubs by gregg, none tonight either. jaimoe and butch are beyond descripton, marc too. how do they do it? otiel rocked it all night long, big time. and you know, the setlist was....ok but i can't complain because the music was so tight and intense.
and yes jim, apology accepted. your daughter did a wonderful job but she picked the wrong ticket.

Really silly comment, but this isn't a pissing contest. I found Ratdog's set to be boring and unenjoyable. Just didn't dig it. Uninspiring is my best description. I don't need ANY band to cover Knockin' on Heaven's Door any time in the near or distant future.

And the only "confidence" that it took for ABB mgmt to share the bill with Ratdog was the confidence that there is a good deal of overlap between the crowd that the ABB and Dead families draw. From the less than spectacular turnout last night, to the great response that Ratdog received from much of the audience, I would say that they NEEDED Ratdog to make this a profitable venture. Do you think Skynyrd co-billed ABB shows last year due to the confidence Gregg and Warren had in the guitar stylings of Rickey Medlocke?

I really think that pairing up The Allmans and Ratdog is a smart, sensible business move. I don't really care who they tour with next summer, as long as it gets them back to my neck of the woods.

But howsabout bringing ALL of the Allmans family bands on tour. That would be my dream come true. Peacemakers, Mule, DTB, and ABB Closer. I might drop out of society, buy a VW bus, and sell grilled cheese sandwiches in the parking lot to follow that tour next summer

They mighta done knowcking on heaven's door for Phil Ruzutto. That's been the rumor.

Anyway, I enjoyed RatDog the ew times recently I saw them. I am thankful I don't have to compare them with the GD.

Anyway, get there late if you're not into checking them out. But like I say, I found them enjoyable enough.
