Local Band: Forgotten Space (in North Texas)

My first time on the Board...My wife and I went out for drinks last Friday night at a local bar in Grapevine Texas called Tolberts. Tolberts features local bands on Friday's and Saturday's. On Friday, a Dead tribute band called Forgotten Space played at Tolberts. The band was absolutely great! It was our first time to see this band and we were impressed.

The lead guitar player, Kenny Withrow, replicated the Jerry Garcia sound down to the riff and note. Kenny Withrow is one of the founding members of Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians. All-in-all, the band played the Dead music very well!

Steve Winwood and Carlos Santana

They're touring together this summer. Saw them Sunday night and both were excellent! Steve has still got it and Carlos, well he's Carlos, enough said! One highlight was when Steve came on stage during Carlos' set and they did Marvin Gaye's "Right On". If they're coming your way I highly recommend them!

The first night was better but only because it was in Denver where the crowd was a lot more respectful. The Boulder show was filled with college kids who didn't know how to shut the F up and listen. I mean these guys play acoustic and they aren't even plugged into amps so excessive talking and laughing and partying kind of ruins the show you know? Like David said "Lost today is the art of listening". Great advice.

Money very well spent ... you a lucky dawg, indeed! Wish I could be there with you - I did check him and his cronies the last time he was here and I really enjoyed it. Are you stoked for round two or what?!

If David Grisman's Bluegrass Experience rolls through your neck of the woods this summer I HIGHLY recommend checking them out. We spent a lazy summer friday night in Denver last night enjoying them. Not only did we get some extraordinary guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle pickin', we got a nice lesson in the history of bluegrass from the man himself ... to top it off, out of nowhere .. could it be? YES! a bluegrassy Dark Hollow. Man oh man what a night!! The best part is I get to see them again tonight in Boulder.

yeah, I've been meaning to check that out

I really loved the last one. Trashcan Tomcat, what's not to like! Completely different from Jerry, but Lauderdale and Hunter have really good chemistry.
