Last show on the current tour. We all sang
Happy Birthday to Mickey. He's looking good at 67!
The drumz and percussion is really well laid out but there was definitely a lack without Keller Williams, unfortunately.
Highlights for me for me were So Many Roads, Hey Bo Diddley, Fire>Scarlet and Goin' Down the Road plus a couple of other tunes I don't know the names of. Mickey brought out a couple of locals midway through the set to help out. That brought a fatter kind of sound.
We danced half the night in front of the Wharf Rats table (Another Dopeless Hope Fiend! & Save Your Face & Let Go, Let Jerry bumper stickers).
Im so Happy that there was a good turnout and so many got to see The Rhythm Devils!! Nowww- were talkin !! yeaahhh, spread the word. Billy and Mickey are just having a blast with this line up and I for one am lovin hearing them jazzin up the Grateful Dead once again.
And I'm lovin the new songs too. There is a definite Grateful Dead feel but they have their very own refreshing groove and ( Iknow Ive said it before ) I love the vocals.. and of course the drums.. got that perpetual motion non stop dance trance- going- again.
Heres who they are :
Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann
Tim Bluhm -guitar
Sikiru Adepoju - drums-talking drum
Davey Knowles- Vocals guitar
Andy Hess- Bass

I cant wait til tomorrow : The Rhythm Devils are going to be here, in Rochester at the Water St. Music Hall. I saw them at The Gathering Of the Vibes and they were rockin, Wonderful to see/ hear Mickey and Billy drumming together again, and I love the new line -up ! Espescially Davy Knowles- singing ! I really enjoy all the Grateful Dead songs ( Scarlet Fire blew me away ) that they do, I thought they were refreshing and at the same time had Deja Vu of The Grateful Dead 1979 :) O O while dancing. Also I want to request VooDoo Zombie... love dancing to this song... come to this show I think you will be really surprised ! they are fantastic... have a few friends that are going to the Buffalo/Niagara Falls show this Friday too, maybe ?? see you there Liz Kemp (Dancingsinginggirl) OO play on- KEEP LISTENING
So, so stoked for Friday at Bear's Den Niagara. I hear it's like 500 seats? Yeowwzaaa! Gonna chase it with Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble in Woodstock the next night, Sept 11, with Sam Bush... Good time for this Canadian head to be in a NY state of mind.
It seems there are few rabid devils fans on this site, but like I posted in Tix Offered, got an extra for Friday if anyone's interested. I'll be trying to sell at cost the night of the show unless I hear from you sooner.
Catch all you heads down on Rainbow Blvd!
