Jam – 2009-11-03 – Carroll’s

DCC_4729_edited-1It’s a big election day here in New Jersey so I have the day off  and am enjoying the weather and the opportunity to pre-post the jam.  Rumor has it that Andy is playing with us tonight but we will see what happens when we get there.  This is what I wrote before I left for the city.

When I got there I met Kevin on 55th Street only to find out Andy was not making it.  We had to pull the old-double switch-a-roo which meant me moving to Jerry and Alan Wikler moving to Bob.  It worked well a few weeks ago so there was no reason to believe it wouldn’t be good tonight.  My initial thoughts were validated as we played well early on with they typical Deadstein fade into the weening hours.

We played predominantly Grateful Dead songs as the lineup dictates.  I was trying the find the balance when singing Bob songs while playing Jerry guitar, it sure is a different mindset.  I felt a little better about it tonight than I did in early October.

DCC_4731_edited-1As far as guests, besides the aforementioned Alan. We had Ken the cookie man, as he is getting to be known as, and let us not forget Bongo Scott Bayer.  There was Carol who was there, actively participating on the cell phone.  Rich brought the cookies home but could pawn off the peanut butter or canned something else. Kevin and I got into TabToolKit, an iPhone app I recently discovered that stored and plays guitar tabs.  He saw it and bought it right away.  I assume it will be useful at a jam some day.


Highlights as I am trying to recall them is that we all survived without needing any time outs.  Actually the Playing jam had some good feel to it.  The Deep Elem Dark Hollow opener gave us time to easily find our place, setting up the rest of the night for some comfortable playing.

In the world, it was election day a s previously noted and the Republican Party had a nice bounce back against the trouncing they experienced one-year ago.  This bounce back was locally highlighted by the victory by Morris County’s own Chris Cristie winning the New Jersey gubernatorial election.  We also have Scott moving on in the OFW (office furniture world) and finally the Yankees are coming home up 3-2 against the Phillies in the World Series.  Fall is over and so are my nice autumnally colored photos.  You can check them out at the links below:

    That’s cool Scott, keep em coming. At least there’s some dialog in the comments section of the blog. I assume you didn’t take the video. Can’t wait for the big Wednesday night.

    Well done on these videos Scott. I could have sworn I heard you say “I’m done with the Fab Faux for a while.” I guess that while was a week.
