The Stones have nothing on the calendar after next week. I think Oteil is living in St. Augustine these days. Maybe he could pick up Derek and Chuck on the drive up to Asheville.


I'm volunteering to be the chauffer to pick up Oteil, Derek & Chuck on the drive up to make sure they make it in time for rehearsal!

Warren, Chuck, and Derek brought the house down on Jessica at the Fox Theatre in May of this year:

That indeed was great. Lifted the roof off the Fox! So was the one with Chuck + Jack, Duane Betts, Jaimoe, Oteil, Marc, Duane Trucks & Bruce Katz at Peachfest in August.

After seeing Chuck play Jessica with the Brothers in 2001, I never saw him play with them again...even though he did most years. I got bittersweet - lucky here in 2017 to see him with the alumni & relatives for two tremendous versions.

Of the however many hundreds of shows I've been to over the years, I do believe that was the loudest crowd I've ever heard. Ear piercing loud toward the top of the balcony. It physically hurt.

I left Asheville at 4pm that Monday of the Col. Bruce chow and drove straight to the Fox. As I was driving, I was like, "Crom, you're too old for this **** ". Fastforward to 1/3 into the show- John Fishman, Duane Trucks, Dave Schools, Warren, and Chuck on stage. I'm like, "Jesus Christ, what a lineup. Man, it'd be killer if my all time favorite musician showed up, but he's not on the list. Oh well". And damnit if Derek didn't walk out on stage right then. I wondered what ARU song they'd play, and they ripped into Jessica. Guys, I kid you not, I literally cried through the entire song. The crowd was going ape- **** that entire time. Apparently after it was played, it was even all everyone was talking about back stage (until the Col. dropped, that is). That Jessica is in the top 3 things I've ever seen in music. You better believe I no longer questioned what I was doing driving to Atlanta on a Monday. And I even made it back to work in Asheville by 8am.

I think that's a safe bet with Warren . . . A nice pair . . . Plus if they are gonna have a 3rd drum kit I could see Matt Abts(since he's already there), Jeff Sipe(since last I knew he was living very close to here in Asheville), or Duane on the other kit. Maybe Berry Duane Oakley on that Tractor bass like at PeachFest!? Or will he be out in CA with Devon and Duane's show the night before?!

Would bet anything Warren fills out the Les Bros lineup. Maybe Trey on a few songs too.

Not sure if they are looking, but Dave Yoke would be a great guitar choice to be paired with Jackie P in Les Bros. He was in the Wanee version of Oteil & Friends in 2016; was also in first rendition or so of Butch & Friends that played Wanee & Peachfest; and a member of the final Susan Tedeschi Band lineup 2008-2009. I think he might be on some of Oteil's new album, too. He's been in Dr. John's band for a couple stints. He's a monster / tasteful player and would be a good ying/yang to Jack.


This looks like a pretty cool band with Dave.

wow. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Benji Shanks & Dave Yoke in the same band...with those other guys....and Jimmy Hall out front? Wow.

I saw New Stew with just Yoke on guitar and they were great covering Bill Wither's Live at Carnegie Hall....with Vernon Reid on vocals (Living Colour). It was really, really good. New Stew often tours with Roosevelt Collier....and I honestly find him too overwhelming in a group dynamic.

Benji is a monster player too....he's played with lots of folks. He was Capt Solarcat in the 2000s. He plays with the Blackberry Smoke guys regularly and the holiday band Last Waltz Ensemble. His full time gig has been guitarist for Kristian Bush (of Sugarland).

Here is Benji with the Last Waltz Ensemble (watch both of his solos including the slide one):

Benji & Dave will be great together with Jimmy and that gang. Can't wait.
