    What's in a name, Marye?
    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Please name the new thread, "Sunshine Daydreamers Keep on Truckin'" If you can include the last 3999 posts, that'd be swellll...just kidding, of course. But if you could include the last 17 (make that 20, see the above 3 hangers-on and ne'er do-wells) or so of the posts from #1, first above written going back to and including July 4th the Happy Anniversary one, that should give one and all some context, as that was the day 2 years ago, when we first met each other for real, where we broke bread and watermelons at the finest pizza pic-a-nic this side of the Rockies, and whence we collectively enjoyed a grand and magnificent band celebrating all good things. Thank Yew veddy much, Oh Kind One.

    We're very intrigued by the Playing in the Sand gig come February and will most likely pony-up. Spoke to a dude at CID today in Philly who's been at all the gigs there (D&C, DMB, etc...) and he said is simply knockout gorgeous and as intimate a live beach concert setting as you can imagine. Multiply that by three shows and "all-inclusive" amenities and the the money grab rolls-on... Anyone else contemplating?

There is word of a gig in Telluride early August. I'd like to check that out. Too bad Boulder wouldn't work for us, this year. (my daddy skated in the roller derby. Me, i could never learn to skate backwards.)

suffice it to say that we are rolling.... rolling right along So glad that liketohike and Ozark hopped on, it appears that Stella Moon has awakened from her golden slumbers and Mayor Klangstone is in for another go around. It's good to know they are still alive and well. So without further adieu I will turn the driving over to Miami, you'll be in good hands with Miami, she's an excellent driver and buys all her underwear at K Mart (or so I'm told). I'm headed to the back with Mr. Trump and watch him drain the swamp, who knows, maybe I can land a cabinet position? Sarge, put on the TV....5 minutes to Wapner. Coffee's on...

...a great trio of ways to get around, but seems rampant discrimination against buses. "Texas Daydreamer enjoys reading of all plans to attend events in 2017..." reads the local fish-wrap, "...makes further plans to decorate couch and enjoy shows from comfort of home." Wishing all of you and yours pleasant scrambling for tickets, rides, flights, rooms and what-nots. Don't forget your towel, and have a grateful day.

Hey now geomeister! So glad you graced us with your presence. The collective conscience of the Dead community is alive and well. Be sure to know you will travel with me in spirit at each and every show I happen upon, promise. It will never be the extravagance of FTW but I am sure there will be more laughs, smiles, hugs and twirls ahead in this journey of life after Jerry. It's funny how every time a new tour is announced, we all come out of hibernation. Feel free to wander about ba dus, grab a cup of coffee and tap your foot to the tunes, Sarge is cueing up some Old and In the Way for you now, is Midnight Moonlight ok? Thought so. There's a seat next to Ivanka back to the right, come to think of it the whole Trump clan is sitting on the right, I wonder why? Hey Donald, get your head back in the window, if that squirrel blows off your dome again, I swear I'm not going back for it this time, and STOP tweeting, it's unprofessional.

Hey! I can offer my thoughts having seen Bob and his band in Cincinatti in January. Our show was about 1/2 acoustic and 1/2 electric. It, of course, featured a lot of songs from the Blue Mountain album. Bob also did some of the Dead songs that lent themselves to acoustic play. For the electric part, he had the guys from the National. They do OK. Some of the more traditional GD songs were good, but, and I hope this is not bad to say, I don't think they are quite strong enough musicians to pull off the improvisation that makes some songs "Dead" songs. They attempted Dark Star at our show and I felt that it sorely needed a lead guitar. But... overall it was great. It's always a treat to see Bob live in any context. I like the cowboy stuff so I was happy to hear those live. And, being with all of our brothers and sisters again is always a joy! Here is the setlist from my show: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/bob-weir/2017/proctor-and-gamble-hall-cin… Enjoy the show! Peace, -Dave

Matt I am sure you will see a solid show. Circumstance and work commitments prevented me from attending the Ryman show last October, but liketohike and hubby were there and I am told it was very good. As Dave said, it's the players, the National, while good are not suited for the extended jams, last month Bobby filled in for Dave Nelson and his band on tour in Alaska, he played half Blue Mountain, and half Dead, the Dead and solo stuff was amazing thanks to the backing players....Pete Sears and Barry Sless on pedal steel made the music alive...I don't know who Bobby will have but you will enjoy yourself.... stay well

thanks for the insight. that is about what i expected from what i've read. currently listening to a show from last october...not bad. i, too, have always liked cowboy bob, so, one way or another, this will be a show. weir with dave nelson sounds awesome. i'll see if i can find that anywhere.

The show was really good. Song selection WAS excellent, execution excellent, some nice jams. as you and Rich suggested, it would be a good, solid show...and it was good to good very good, and some moments really shined. Deep Ellum Blues was a rave-up, especially as the venue was about a mile from the original Deep Ellum section of Dallas. GDTRFB was probably my highlight, my wife really appreciated Easy to Slip. STOM plodded a bit IMO, Althea was uneven but good. The crowd turned Truckin into a sing along and drowned out the band. it was fun bt I can't tell you if was good or not. Bob stepped up to the mike and just ignored the lyric "Dallas!"..it seemed spontaneous. This show seemed to have more "red dirt" west Texas influence in the Blue Mountain songs than what I've sampled on YouTube. "When in Rome...", I guess. There was a new song they played that was more jazz-blues than west Texas..I'll have to figure out which it was...that was my "new" song highlight. I think by the end of the tour they'll stretch it out to a nice jam. I, too, was a little disappointed in the lead guitar work. I've heard Kimock before, and liked him, but last night, something was just not there for me. He was not bad at all...he just was not exceptional. I know it is not fair to hold Garcia, or even Anastasio or Mayer, as the standard when listening to Dead songs, but I do. So that is the context in which I say he was not exceptional. All in all...I've seen Weir as the Bob Weir band way long ago, Ratdog in many of its lineups, and then last night...last night was certainly the most unique, and maybe the most enjoyable of maybe 10 or 12 Bobby-led shows I've been. I would certainly go again. The venue's acoustics are exceptional, too, so that made it that much better.

glad you liked the show, reviews I've read were positive...there will never be another Jerry, so we may as well stop the comparisons... On a different note Matt, ever try Brother Thelonius White Belgian Ale....although I prefer IPA's, this California brew is kick ass in taste as well as ABV, over 9 percent.... Regards to the missus, our birthdays are right around the virtual corner.... be well....
