Yes - and the Bears have to play 2 first place teams in a row - could be ugly ...

Maybe the Lions go on a winning streak and the Bears keep losing and the Bears wind up in last place! 😛

Didn't want to create a separate topic on this so figured I would just stick this post in this generic thread for anyone who is a fan.

Went to see Hot Tuna last night at the Wilbur Theater in Boston with the David Bromberg band opening. 

I had never seen Bromberg before and really enjoyed their set. Fantastically talented band and love their set of varied musical styles. His fiddle player, all the way to the right, was amazing. Three of them all playing mandolin's on this song

We got a special treat during the Hot Tuna set when they brought out Susan Tedeschi for a couple of songs. Tedeschi Trucks are in town for four shows at the Orpheum Theater this week so it was great to see her show up as a guest. Their last show for 2021 is this coming Saturday so hope her and Derek hang out in town and make a guest appearance at the Allman Family Reunion next week. 

 

Jorma is 80yrs old  and Jack is 77yrs old but man those guys are still on top of their game. Jorma's vocals sound great and he and Jack can still really pick it.

Saw Hot Tuna at Wanee at least a couple of times - they are fun to watch, and I have Steady as She Goes on my ipod and enjoy every song that comes up from that album.  Glad you got a great show!

Glad you got a good show Bill. I saw acoustic Hot Tuna in 2000. They opened for the ABB. It was just the two of them I think. Didn't knock my socks off but I enjoyed them.

Yeah Hot Tuna is just Jorma and Jack Cassidy these days with small group of touring musicians each tour. Last night it was just he two of them with a drummer.

I am not a huge fan of Hot Tuna but I do try to go see them every time they come to Boston as I do like their music and Jorma and Jack are legends and so talented.

They played for just over an hour and a half and did a mixture of  acoustic and electric songs last night. Both of those guys playing is still at a high level which is amazing to me considering one is 80 and the other 77yrs old. Both can still pick it and I did not notice any struggles with their playing due to old age. Jorma's vocal still sound great as well.

First time I got to see David Bromberg live and his band is excellent and loved the mixture of musical styles which included some jazz, blues, country and bluegrass. Another 77yr old who can still pick it.

Just a great night out listening to quality live music in a small intimate theater.

I thought it was different between acoustic and electric as far as how they billed themselves.

They billed last nights Boston show as a mix of acoustic and electric. I have seen them both ways and liked the mix last night. Interestingly on their website they are calling the tour "Electric Hot Tuna" yet their poster mentions a mix and they played a mix last night Although not sure what their definition of acoustic is as even Jorma's acoustic guitars had pickups. he did some fine acoustic guitar picking though.

THB got her booster shot Saturday. She feels fine but she has slept a LOT the last two nights. Saturday she slept 12 hours and then Sunday she went to bed at 7:00 for another 10 hours. I guess that can be one of the side effects, fatigue.

Went to my optometrist this morning. They lock the door so they have to allow people to come in. COVID thing. I lowered my mask to put my face into one of their machines and the technician went nuts. How do you fit in the machine with a mask on your face? 🙄

If you are as ugly as you then perhaps! 😜 

 

You stick your face in this contraption. I imagine everyone has done it. Move your face this way, that way. It really was difficult with the mask. Medical technology seems to change all the time. 

I got out of there with about $450 less in my pocket. Grr... 🙄

It's not belated mate, it is today ... and she says thank you!

Unfortunately she can't celebrate with a tipple as she had her covid booster jab yesterday and is avoiding alcohol as advised for a few days ... but I am making up for it with a drop of Bombay Sapphire ... Cheers!

You'll probably still get them all wrong. 😮 Had Thai for dinner. The crab rangoons were great. Chicken satays were wonderful as well.

Now it is just wait for the Meeechigan game to come on. I am nervous.
