And gotta give some love

to Leftover Salmon and kudos to Michael Franti (sp?) and Spearhead at the 10K lakefest. My sons were very taken by Spearhead's message, showmanship, and music. Great stuff by both these bands at that Festival. I missed much other music there but was wowed and danced to these fine acts. 'Thank you, for a real good time"....!!!!!!!!

Gov't Mule

I saw them last Sunday (June 22) , they split off from the joint tour with Ratdog for one night and did this one alone. Played for almost three hrs.. I can't say enough good things about this band. From the incredible energy to the stunning musicianship and just good feelings that flow from the band to the crowd and back again. If you love live music and I assume everyone on this site does you owe yourself the favor of going to see Gov't Mule.

With all due respect to the many other great jam bands that are around now and that I love, this is my favorite one that doesn't have a GD member in it.

As an added bonus, I was able to shake Warren Haynes hand and have a few words with him after the show.

railroad earth

Saw Railroad Earth last September when i barely knew any of their stuff. One of the best shows ive been to. Probably my favorite show actually. The good vibes and mandolin and fiddle solos kept everyone, even my metalhead friends, dancing for a solid three hours.

Great Shows

I saw Johnny Winter back in 84 in a small bar venue ( 1,000 or so ) he rocked the roof off the house. He is still touring but he sits as he plays and is some what slow to move as he walks. Get out and see him people cause all our great musicans are fadeing away - Long Live Jerry. How about these shows anyone seen them?

Plant/Krauss

I left them off my ROO '08 list because I didn't see much of their set unfortunately (I saw Phil's acoustic set then HAD to take a "break" which can be involved and time consuming at Bonnaroo) but what I did catch was very good. I like Krauss with Union Station too.

This album is very good

This album is very good Mary. Probably couldn't be a more unlikely yet perfect match. Both are in their element and you can feel that they are in bliss finding that out. T-bone is...what can I say...Bring's out the magic in them. Glad you could enjoy them! pk
