Govt. Mule in The Elbow Room in Columbia, SC, 1996, maybe 50 people standing in there. Grinnin' in our face.

Crack The Sky, Great Southeast Music Hall, Atlanta, 1979, maybe 100 people there.

Saffire: The Uppity Blues Women at the Long's Park Amphitheater in Lancaster, Pa. Incredible.
Also saw Livingston Taylor there.

The park does a great summer concert series on Sunday nights if anyone is in the area.

Dickey Betts & Great Southern at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA on a Sunday night. I think it was 2006. There were tables set up on the dance floor, since the crowd was so small. It was awesome. I stood in front of the stage and had a blast.

REM and Jason and the Nashville Scorchers, Jan, 1982, 688 Club, Atlanta. It was rumored Jason wrote Hot Night in Georgia following this show(and it was cold, outside). Maybe 300 people were there.

Lindsey Buckingham in Montgomery, Al a year or so ago (not many more than 500).
Hot Tuna and Oteil at the Variety in Atlanta last year (not sure how many)

The Randall Bramblett and Tommy Talton gig in Macon a few weeks ago.

At the 2nd Street Music Hall in Gadsden - the Capricorn Rhythm Section, Jimmy Hall and Jack Pearson, Lee Roy Parnell, Bob Margolin and Nappy Brown, many others.

At the now defunct Moonlight Music Cafe - Tony Furtado - like having him perform in your living room!

Many shows at WorkPlay, including the North Mississippi Allstars, Oteil and the Peacemakers (too many of those shows to count!), Col Bruce and the Code Talkers, Randall Bramblett Band - so many!

I saw the dTB in a little place in Lawrence, Kansas called the Bottleneck. Quite a dive but a comfprtable place. Max capacity maybe 250. Maybe 99 people there. Great show though none the less.
I gotta throw in 2nd Street Blues in Gadsden, sweet place and small venue.

dTb at The Imperial Theater, Augusta, GA, January 2005. It's an 800 seater, but there might have been 400-500 in attendance.

The Jam For Duane in October 2006, at 2nd Street Music Hall, was a REAL buzz. I remember Capricorn Rhythm Section was ON FIRE that night. Tommy Talton was smoking the slide guitar. He could do no wrong that night. I know there have to be tapes of this. I'd love to hear them again.

Gov't Mule at Captain Tripps Rainforest Preserve in Utica, NY December 27, 1995.....Maybe 200 people in the joint. I actually stood next to Warren outside the place about 45 minutes before show time. Myself, Smattermonnat, and two other die hard fans were just too speechless to utter a word. Great show. I'm still sad that Mule has skipped Central, NY the last few tours. They used to have a big following in Central, NY....

Levon Helm Midnight Ramble. Two summers ago before they got real popular. It went on for 5 hours or so. Great night; he was just really getting his voice back. About 150 people in his recording studio in Woodstock.

Muddy Waters w/ the Nighthawks opening at the old Cellar Door in DC (circa 75/76).

Other good ones included:

Buddy Rich also at the Cellar Door
Sea Level at Saint Andrew's College, Laurinburg, NC
Goose Creek Symphony, at Campbell College, Buies Creek, NC
Danny Gatton, small club (forget the name), Fairfax, VA
Dickey Betts and Great Southern at Jaxx's, Springfield, VA
Billy Joe Shaver at the State Theater, Falls Church, VA
Dave Matthews Band (about a year before they broke Big) free concert in a small park. Manteo, NC
Cephas and Wiggins, small Blues Festival, Arlington, VA.
DTB at Ziggy's, Winston-Salem, NC (couldn't find the place, so saw a blond, pontailed kid with a guitar case walking down the road and ask for directions .........Thanks, Derek)

and last, but certainly not least....the Orginal ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND at the Cumberland County Auditorium, Fayetteville, NC the weekend before (or maybe the weekend before that) they played the Fillmore East and recorded what is now know as "Live at the Fillmore East". Basically we got the "dress rehersal" for those shows (and some stuff that never came out of the Fillmore shows such as "Hootchie Cootchie Man" and "Dreams")

The first 15-20 Mules shows that I saw. Sometimes the crowds were not too big and the places were small. But I liked it that way.

Well,it was really short and unadvertised.OK,it really wasn't a concert,I guess.

Folk City in Greenwich Village after a David Peel and the Lower East Side show,Bob Dylan walked in and took the stage.There were about 10 of us left in the place,including DP & TLES.

Tragically Hip, New Years Eve I think 1992 at Club Soda in Montreal. Had to be maybe 150 people tops in the venue. Show was just before they went HUGE in Canada. A little fungi made for a fun time all around.

Cool that you said less than 500 people - The smaller the better.

A few of my very small show memories...

Widespread Panic in the early 1990's at Irving Plaza in NYC - approx 400 people - including comsecutive shows in 1993...Also, Panic at the Stone Pony with Blind Melon opening up. I also caught Panic in 1994 at The Sting in New Britain, CT with less than 200 people there. I partied before the show with John Bell at a GO GO Bar which was literally attached to The Sting On one side... I always knew Panic would make it big.


The early days of The Mule with Woody were also sweet and I caught them quite a few times. I saw them at Wetlands In NYC with a very small crowd and they played until 2:00 AM. Also at The Tradewinds, a bar at the Jersey Shore with less than 250 people. THere was yet another time at Mulcahy's in Long Island when I lent Woody some change to make a local call on a pay phone... Nothing like the early Mule either - they ROCKED! They made Cream sound like a wedding band...and I love Cream by the way.

I saw Rick Danko in a studio with less than 50 people there...AMAZING!

I saw the Steve Kimock Band with Alphonso Johnson on bass play an INCREDIBLE show under the tent in Waterloo Village on a beautiful late summer night with less than 100 people if you can believe it. I saw multiple shooting stars on the way out of the place...Kimock truly lit up the night with notes that are still hanging on the air...
Also caught Kimock a few times at Mexicali Blues with very small crowds. Amazing you can catch such a talented guy in such small places..

Also, The Derek Trucks Band about 3 or 4 times at a very small place called The Stanhope House in North Jersey with about 200 people or so. This was back when Bill Mckay was playing keys in the 1990's. I just knew Derek was headed for stardom..like who didn't. ..Derek ruled even back then.

Saw Warren Haynes do a full blown solo acoustic set at The Stanhope House as well. Two hours of Mr. Haynes and an acoustic guitar...pretty F'n cool if you ask me,

Frogwings at The Wetlands was also incredible...I practically was sitting on Kofi's stool with him. Talk about tight quarters...

Jazz Is Dead with Herring, Cobham, Alphonso and T. Lavitz! at some very small club in Manahttan...can't even remember the name of the place.


some BIG memories at small places...
