Last night was really great - didn't mind the rain until it got to be possibly hazardous for the band. I was front and center, too.

Honeytribe was even better than I thought they would be - haven't seen them live before. Devon's voice was just really stunning - terrific, with a sweet timbre to it. I had expected his guitar playing to be great (which it was), but his voice just really got to me. He and Pedro were really kicking out the solos. Pedro's guitar was down a little too far in the mix for my taste, but his slide playing was excellent. They played great and looked to be having a really good time. Devon introduced Duane Betts and they played Key to the Highway. Duane did a really great solo. Then Devon said, "We almost never do this, but since Duane is here we're gonna go for it." He then launched into Midnight Rider and the crowd was thrilled. I was crying tears of joy.

Dickey came out and asked the crowd to come a little closer, since it was spread out, and was raining just a little. He had the crowd in the palm of his hand before he even played a note. The rain pretty much stopped for the next hour or so. Here's the setlist possibly not in exact order.

Dickey said he was going to play a Willie McTell song and everyone cheered then launched into Statesboro Blues

Nothing You Can Do - crowd was all warmed up and with him

Blue Sky - really great - Andy kicking ass, Dickey and Duane right there with him

One Way Out - with Devon Allman singing (he looks so much like Duane, you get chills)

Let's Go Down to the River

Nobody Left to Run With - crowd going crazy

In Memory of Elizabeth Reed - everyone including drummers had fabulous solos - with Pedro's being the highlight for me, doobs timed it at about 28 minutes

Jessica - absolutely KILLER with Dickey standing over by Mike - feeding off each other

The band is really tight - tuning problems like MtnGun reported - Dickey said he was a little aggravated, but went on to just seriously kick ass. Dickey's voice is sounding good!

Then the rain was too much, and they had to stop playing. Really a great night. The only way it would have been better, was if they could have played longer. I think that is the best Jessica I've ever seen/heard. Just astonishing. Don't know if I forgot a song or not. Anybody else know?

Excellent review Kitty! Hope Dickey and band/Honey Tribe swings by my neck of the woods sometime.

Thanks, Taylor - I knew that, but couldn't remember it when I posted - pretty excited still. doobs told me, too, but still couldn't remember the title. I remembered it later, but figured everyone knew what I meant - LOL!

CanPeach - didn't see any tapers, but oh man, if someone got that Jessica on tape - it would be worth it's weight in gold - never seen or heard one better - EVER. Dickey and Mike doing call and response, just feeding off each other with a sweet rain falling - I'll never forget it. Neither will Nancy (Pontart8), Kay (DetroitKay) or doobs. Unbelievable - like going to church and having an epiphany.

Can't remember if they played Back Where It All Begins - anybody know? I think there were a few others there that I didn't get the chance to meet.

Thanks! I couldn't remember if they played Ramblin' Man or not. Now I know. I asked doobs and Pontart8 to check my set list - this was late at night and we were soaked and at a bar - LOL! Thanks for filling this in! On Dickey's site I asked for corrections, but even Andy Aledort who replied a couple times, didn't correct me either. Thought he might.

oh I wasn't at the show man, I'm just surprised he didn't play it. I saw Devon Play it and he said those same words opening for the Outlaws in Sellersville, PA about ten days before that

OK, now I understand - Dickey's show was cut short because of the rain. He also was playing under time constraints because it was a festival and they had to be finished by a certain time - noise ordinance or something. I am thinking that they didn't play Ramblin Man and were saving it for the encore that they never got to do. This would be why Andy didn't correct me.

Devon's voice just blew me away - Loved him. I'm hooked.
