Outside of Derek's solo in the Other One jam out of BHW, Derek's solo in Dreams and Oteil's bass solo, the show was flat for me. The band seemed discoonected at times. Warren wasn't doing it for me. When Warren stepped on Derek's slide solo in Dreams, it pissed me off. Warren wasn't listening or paying attention and he just takes over and plays the same slide riffs he always plays in Dreams, no creativity or soul. The best guest moment was Sky is Crying. Buddy did some nice Albert King guitar work. YDLM & Southbound were forgettable, as was Liz Reed. On an off night, this band still has great moments. I'm sure a lot of you will disagree with me, this is just my opinion and what moves me about this music. I want to see more creativity, more new and Warren taking some chances. The first night is still best of the three for me.

I'd give the first night the edge too, loved the MJ.

I really liked the lmb@h/who's been talkin'/black hearted woman part of the show. Way jammed out for the first set, and no guests. It was after BHW that Warren could be heard saying "we're jamming too much." Not that I understand why that's a bad thing

Holy $hit!!! Just my two cents, but that show goes straight to my top four or five out of fifty plus. 'The Sky Is Crying' with Buddy was worth the price of admission itself. The interplay between Warren, Buddy and Derek was absolutely amazing. At one point Warren and Buddy had one of those chill up your spine moments and they both had smiles from ear to ear. I thought the band was as tight as can be tonight, I mean last night. LOL! We got the 'Little Martha' opening which was very cool. 'Southbound' was off the hooks.

The only miscue I noticed all night was Gregg coming in too early during 'You Don't Love Me'. It was a natural mistake as he is used to coming in after two solos instead of three. His voice is as strong as I have ever heard and he was very animated. Mitzi would have passed out during the first set with Gregg letting his hair down.

Both Warren and Derek were on fire from beginning to end and were both obviously having a blast, especially with Buddy. Then the ending run of 'IMOER', Dreams, Jessica, and 'Statesboro' were awesome IMO!!!!! WHAT JAMMING GUITAR WORK!!!!!

Not a good show IMO, a great show IMO. I wasn't there for opening night but was blown away by it on Moogis. This show to me was just as good, but like I said I was not at Monday's show. I think whoever said that last night's show was flat is crazy! The crowd was absolutely bonkers, tons of energy and the band was feeding off it. To me it felt more like a Saturday show. Sorry if some don't agree.

My only disappointment was with Trey. He wasn't bad, but nothing special and a bit underwhelming after Buddy. I don't think he brought his A game to the table which is something you better have when you take the stage with Warren and Derek. Page on the other hand was very impressive on the piano.

Also great meeting Eileen1 and nypeachhead. We were BSing about the first set and didn't realize the Brothers were already into 'I Know You Rider' on stage. LOL! We then scrambled back to our seats.

Some excellent shots just posted there! For me, this show just smoked ... amazing, amazing and another reminder of why I go see these guys live every chance I get even after 40 years (which - lucky me, thanks Butch, my chances for live shows have been happily increased due to Moogis this year). SMOKING!!!

I wonder if Derek wore the Junior Wells "Hoodoo Man Blues" shirt as a tribute to the "Friendly Chap" who was sitting in with them last night?

I thought the band was loose as a goose and feeling good, and you could feel it in their playing. The intensity of the first set, the jammy feel of the second set - egggzellent. And Gregg was so animated, rocking out, and really singing, extending those notes, better than I have heard him in years -

I posted this in Anthing Goes. I'll post it here and go and delete the other.

I agree that In Memory of Elizabeth Reed was outstanding, but my song of the night was Southbound. I thought the band and the guests really came together on it. I was in the Lower Bacony Row A and the music seemed much louder (not in a bad way) then in years past. Anyone agree? Also, I noticed Oteil is wearing shoes and doesn't have his carpet. Can't remember him doing that, at least not at the Beacon. Does anyone know why the carpets gone? The place looked great and the sound was awesome so I have to give Dolan some props for that. Security was definately heavier but some 'Beacon Traditions' still went on. Only saw security once ask someone to stop. Great night as far as I'm concerned. Gregg did have his hair down and even donned glasses for a bit in the first set. My group, growing older and in full understanding got a good chuckle out of that.

Be safe and see you on the 26th,
John

My friends and I were talking about Oteils getup. I think it is casual Friday at the Beacon tonight though. Maybe he will lose the shoes and don the tie dye........

OK, I'll have to give it another go. Thank you Moogis. Maybe it was the wine I was drinking?

I'd love to hear your thoughts again after re-watching (how great is that) and re-listening to the show. I thought the Liz Reed smoked and was a highlight for me, perhaps it was the beer I was drinking This was my first of 10 so obviously missed Mon. and Tue so perhaps it was that 1st night excitement for me, or the fact I don't have a recent show fresh in my mind to compare it (Red Rocks was my last), but man I thought the whole 2nd set was on fire. I did think the first set was maybe a bit uneven but I really liked the setlist so that more then makes up for it in my mind, and uneven may be a bit harsh because damn, how freakin' good are these guys. Too much fun.
