Check out this soundboard from Nashville last year. Opens with Oh the Wind and the Rain>Dust in the Baggie. Later a sweet Senor and a nice take on Riders in the Storm with an interesting take  of The End referencing a hippie loving his parents instead of killing them. See what you think

Sorry, wrong show link before, got it right here (I think)

We got an Oh The Dreadful Wind and The Rain>Dust In The Baggie, midset,  last night at The Southgate Revival House in Newport last night. Also , some hints of PITB throughout the extensive jams. Really great cosmic harmonizing with mandolin and the banjo, stand up bass. He came from two shows in Texas and is heading now to Pittsburgh. DO NOT MISS this if he comes your way. A deadheads delight. Threw in reference lines about hippies buying tyedyes from Uncle John. The riffing and incredible speed and passion bring him to places only JG went. Hopefully, he won't crash and burn. He seemed strong last night. Dropped one the line about making the fiddle from her small breast plate, but made up for it with leads that were moment to moment inspired. What a treat. Turmoil and Tinfoil is his second album. Worth it. We really wanted that Dreadful Wind and he did it without anyone asking, he just knew what needed to be played and joy rose from the dusts of despair, esp with the PITB licks we all were grinning, laughing and sheading tears while he was shredding the acoustic

Opened tonight's free show in Hamilton with dreadful wind and the rain > dust. Later in the set he started with living like an animal took it into MAMU back Into animal then finished off MAMU.  Beautiful night on top of a river over look with incredible clouds and a double rainbow.  A hawk flew in half way into the show

Just listened to the 2nd night grand Rapids on relisten..we thought about going up, but it rained hard all day Saturday and it would have been 700 miles round trip. Glad you got a red rocking chair,  as jumbled as it was. Nice he's reworking it into the sets.  Maybe see you at the NYE run. We're front row balcony,  planning on draping a recently purchased tyedye sheet we got at the Hampton phish shows.

Any idea if the NYE show is 21+? My go to NYE went 21+ this year and I always have the boys. Would love to do DSO but east coast is too expensive and complicated for me as Philly repeatedly kicked me in the jewels over 3 days last year.

As far as I can tell,  it is all ages, listing as a performing arts center with a bar available,  not just listing as a bar. Considering his recent three night Boulder > Denver run,  with really different setlists, this should be a treat. The catalog continues to expand. Now including Walls of Time, Gotta Jigaboo, and Body and Soul. I think he's got a violinist sitting in as special guest

I listened to a good portion of that run at work yesterday. I have an email into the venue. Have to be sure before I drop the dough. Lots of all ages places go 21+ for NYE.

It’s the best place for sold out jam band shows. Face value tix. Got phish and panic pit tix in Nashville for under face plus fees. It’s really a phish site. It’s like 75% phish tix lol

I’m not doing the whole run but I’m 99% I’m heading up for NYE. Place emailed me it’s an all ages show. So this is likely our NYE road trip this year. I’m pretty excited not sure if the boys will be or not. 

 

#selfish Christmas present. Lol
