I loved the show. Somebody please post a set list. I have forgotten the name of a couple of songs. (old age is hell) See ya’ll inBerkeley
Derek just gets better and better every time I see him. The whole band was just amazing last night. I haven’t seen the set list, but they played a lot of the new tunes.
I’ve been waiting for a long time to see Susan back on stage with the Brothers. Also, really cool to see Derek holding his son (name??) and Susan taking a break side-stage during the percussion solo.
Looking forward to the show at the Greek in Berkeley tonight!
Thanks to Chris Brown for a great review…..your comment about Berkeley tonight makes me look forward to it even more! Is it just me or has the band gotten even better since last year? I’m with you all the way, 44 Blues was just a mind blower, Warren and Derek showing that they are masters of traditional blues on top of all the other styles in their repertoire. Instrumental Illness just a mind blower, I grow tired of it on CD, really a live song, and improvised here way beyond the recorded version. Gregg took a long time to get his voice warmed up, but man, did he nail it in the second set on Not My Cross to Bear and then nearly brought tears to my eyes as the man’s bone-chilling pain wafted out from behind the organ during Desdemona, which after Warren and Derek’s solos was probably the highlight of the show. And yeah, Don’t Look Twice with Susan was just tremendous, her hubbie’s tasty, restrained slide really making the tune. The good vibes are just flowing off the stage now, everyone is on the same page, probably more so than at any time since Duane had an unfortunate incident on the road. Thanks for the setlist Chris, I didn’t jot it down and still too foggy to remember it! -Rob in San Jose
Wow what an outstanding show. I just got back. Any show that starts with Hot Lanta is destined to be great. Susan T. came out and did two songs with the band, trading licks with Warren and Derek on the second one, Statesboro Blues. I am really looking forward to seeing the band again in Vegas on the 12th!
