Great show.

I was more than pleasantly surprised by the Doobies.

The Allman Brothers Band opened with a sloppy sounding Hot'lanta, but then really burned bright the rest of the night. Someone with a better memory than me will give a set list.

Sounds like you guys had as much fun as we did on Tuesday in Saratoga. Thanks
for the setlist (it looked like the Doobies played the same set list at PNC as they did at our
show at SPAC).

Great show tonight. The show did start off slow but then picked up some juice as the night went on. Let's say I saw the show from a few different perspectives and they were all interesting and very hot. The music too. Gregg was great on Stormy Monday, both vocals and keys. Derek was great on the other One Jam in Black Hearted Woman. Warren was great on Woman Across the River. And I think everyone was really at the top of their game during Black Hearted Woman> Other One Jam> BHW. Just the highlight of the night for me. I just love that song's beat. I don't remember Jessica but I am sure that was when I just had to get something else to drink. I was able to persuade the server to put some ice in my diet iced tea and I was good to go for Melissa and You Don't Love Me with Jr Mack, who sat in most boldly on guitar. I remember Oteil's bass solo while I was taking a quick break cause it shook the walls of the ladies room. :-) It was so great to see the band tonight. I thought they sounded great and energetic. Must have been the packed and grooving crowd. Actually a lot of people sat on their behinds, but what you gonna do. Long as they didn't stop the dancers who were disbursed throughout the crowd, that's all that mattered. The front sections did mostly stand with many people dancing and giving proper homage to the band.

I just love the South Jersey crowd.

And Wharfstock was fantastic as usual. So many great people from the site getting together and having a nice down home time. My kind of crowd. And of course seeing all the regulars from the Beacon too. A great fun night. I had a good time, even if it was a hot August night and I hiked more than I usually ever do at any other point in the year. So, next year I will be back to do the same work out. With the help of God of course. :-)

Oh and I got to listen to some of the Mule's new cd at the Mule Van. Good stuff. Stop by the van and check it out the next show you go to.

Tonight (8-19-00), 9 years ago, was Allen's last show with Mule. I came across this photo signing onto the site tonight. I saw it as a good omen of remembrance.




Allen Woody NOLA JAZZ Fest April 1996 by Sherie Brubaker

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

August is a tough month for a lot of music heads.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He was on the screen tonight with Duane during No One Left to Run With. It was bittersweet tune as usual, but those of us who dance, danced.

I also want to add that I was glad my friend Jen was able to be there and meet so many of you. She has met a few folks but even more this time including Bluedad!

observations from the front row - thanks Charlie O!!!

before i get to the highlights, i saw something last night i've never seen at an allman's show:

an 1:40 set! are you kidding me? come on guys, that is not the band i know. with a 2 song encore, the total play time was 2 hours. not sure if there was a curfew, but they played a lot longer last year and deeper into the night.

now to the good stuff:
1 - they were all smiles and laughter last night
2 - derek and warren love each other - they are the only two musicians in rock n roll in the same band that can have a pissing contest on guitar and laugh about it after the fireworks
3 - i never really dig the addition of horns, but the juke horns were great last night. great energy, great interplay
4 - warren is still the band leader
5 - gregg was sharp and into it the whole night. during the beacon run, he looked confused sometimes. he was locked in last night and was great
6 - great energy from the crowd
7 - parking lot was not nearly as crowded or crazy as with rat dog last year. mellow mood set the tone for a great evening.
8 - i love how the band members look for eye contact with the crowd. my and CharlieO were messin with Derek, Oteil was grooving right in front of us and Butch and I had a staring contest - i won
9 - butch was either really locked in last night or not in a good mood. not one smile or hint of emotion. but his playing was thunderous.

sully

"9 - butch was either really locked in last night or not in a good mood. not one smile or hint of emotion. but his playing was thunderous."

Butch did not look happy last night. He seems like he could either be really nice or a total bastard. It was pretty damned hot last night, he had to have been soaked through to his jockeys. That's enough to dampen (pun intended) even the happiest moments.

I saw Ratdog open the last two years and I was soooooooooooooooooooo happy they were not on the bill this year. They're sloooowwwwww...and...mellllll....ow and sap the energy. The Doobies were a nice change of pace.

Good show. Derek's solo on Woman Across The River was the highlight for me. Black Hearted Woman was great too. Jessica just does not do it for me without the author of the song, and I feel the same way every time they play it. The only way I can describe it is "wrong". It really needs Dickey's tone; there, I said it.

The Doobie Brothers were fabulous. They go on my list of "must sees" when they're nearby. Best opener I've seen in a long time, should really be headlining their own shows.

Big thanks to Chuck for another great Wharfstock! Lots of fun as always (despite the horrendous heat and humidity!)

I'm usually not a "guest" person, but the Juke Horns, Jounior Mack and Pat Simmons (surprisingly after listening tio the Fantasy Casino Vine) were all very good. Warren set the tone for the evening with his solo on Nobody Left to Run With. Not my favorite set, but they're all good, so you shouldn't complain.

The guests are best when they blend with the band and that certainly happened last night.

It was nice to meet you last night Paul. I got stuck for an hour on the Parkway heading home. I didn't get back to Scranton until 3 am. I should have taken 287 like you suggested but since it was night I didn't want to get lost. I was kicking myself after about 20 minutes.

What is the Fantasy Casino vine?

Now that is something I never thought to do at a concert!

After the staring contest, he probably thought you were Bird72 and was pissed the rest of the night

Big time props to chuck for yet another Wharfstock, and it was nice to see a few new faces.In recognition of susea's friend Jen, I gotta say the ABB show was wicked pissah!! The band was much tighter and higher energy than the Beacon run, except for the 3/26 show. The setlist was packed with the highoctane, high-energy songs, other than a nice, mellow Melissa.

Can't say I enjoyed the Dobbies, but everybody has their tastes.

I didn't miss Dickey on Jessica so much as Chuck's piano.

There were music stands on stage next to Oteil, so we knew to expect the Juke Horns- none of the other usual horn sit-ins (Holloway, Collins, Coltrane) need music. I agree with the poster above- as long as they stay in the background, they add a lot to the performance, which they mostly did last night. But IMO as soloists, they are mediocre at best. The trumpet player twirls his horn better than he plays, one of the sax players hit a wrong note real hard- my wife who has perfect pitch cringed. I did like the trombone solo. Other than that they blow high notes and hold them. Stand Back and Soulshine with the Jukes rocked.

No One to run and BHW were both off the charts with the extended solos.

With 20 minutes left for an encore, I would have preferred Whipping Post, but despite Melissa, which I have seen a few too many times, You don't Love Me was a great way to end the night.

Hey Alan, this is Jim from Scranton, we met at parking lot Wharfstock last night. I was expecting a Whipping Post closer too with 20 minutes left. And after the intense jamming in Black Hearted Woman I really thought it felt like WP night. Oh well, I won't complain since I love Melissa and Junior Mack tore it up on "You Don't Love Me". Nice to meet you.

Howdy Jim, like I said it was nice see see new faces and associate them with the screen names.

Totally agree with you with Junior Mack, he rocks!

Probably the only vine (5/23)from this years West Coast Shows. Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons guested on two different songs. Johnston really spit the bit on Stormy Monday.

As I was getting on 287 I noticed that 287 North and 440 South are the same Highway, (only in NJ) I was hoping, if you took it, you didn't wind up in Staten Island.
