I second that notion Derek is in a stratosphere all his own.....

Took the words off my keyboard....although I am a HUGE DT fan and didn't attend any shows this year (and didn't have moogis) I've listened to quite a few of the shows and Oteil never ceases to amaze me with his incredible musicianship and glowing spirit. A true team player if there ever was one....

And honorable mention goes to Butch for conceiving moogis and making it a reality so that so many fans who couldn't make it got to feel like they WERE there...

My MVP vote goes to Butch simply because he gave us Moogis. MVP doesn't always mean your best performer. Because of Moogis Butch brought the magic of The Beacon to so many people who could not only be there this year, but those who never had the opportunity or the capability to experience it. Plus we'll get to relive the glory in its entirty for months to come. Bravo Butch!

It is so easy to focus on Greg's vocals, or the playing of Derek, Warren, or Oteill, but sometimes I am simply amazed at the playing of Jaimoe, Butch, and Marc as well. Three soloists in their own right who are in such synch with each other, they never step on each other's grooves. My MVP has to go to the entire band for stepping it up this run. If an individual vote is necessary, so as not to derail this thread, then I go with Butch, also, for his hand in the Moogis connection.

Gregg, Butch, Jaimoe, Warren, Marc, Derek & Oteil

No such thing as an MVP!

Derek to me was the MVP, he was at a different level than I've seen him at before every night. Oteil would be my runner up.

However everyone was great.

I believe that there must be some part of Duane' soul in Derek. He is "the new Duane"! The Haynes/ Trucks combination has become very powerful. i used to think that they were a little to "jazzy", but not anymore

Derek and Oteil were the dynamic duo through the ABB run. They were a great delight all through out the run and they were my oasis. Also Gregg's voice was great through out the run and he was totally on and engaged and man is he beautiful. I do also want to say that I love the percussion aspect of the ABB. They are the top in the business, imho and they totally gave me what I needed to be mentally and physically connected to the music this run.

There is no I in team. This was a total group effort-Derek Stood out at times, as did the rest of them all. Fabulous group who can still bring it, and the guests just added to the total group effort. Best group out there hands down in my opinion.

great thread > even though we all know there is no such thing because without the genius and vision of Duane we'd have nothing.

so by default he is the MVP.

honorable mention:

Moogis >

The band was tight, the guests were great, hard pressed to select an MVP.

I don't know about MVP BUT THE UNSUNG HERO award has to go to Butch Trucks as Jaimoe was having a rough time playing through an injury he suffered to his left hand.Butch more than covered for Jaimoe every night.Last but not least, the incredible rhythm section makes it possible for Derek and Warren to do whatever they want knowing that they're being backed up by the best.--Jett
