Jam – 2010-05-12 – Carroll’s

Drawn on the iPad by Kevin using Art Studio

Wednesday night and the 5 of us assembled at Carroll’s to do what we do which is to do our best jamming the music of the Grateful Dead. We opened with the Bertha and closed with the Weight and had a lot of substance in between.

The were plenty of squeals in the room. The PZM had a 12k dog style type of badness to it but it didn’t prove to be too much of an issue as the night went on. Kevin’s combo of JC-120 and old school Ampeg had a pulsating squeal to it which turned out to be Scott Bayer’s cell phone. Lastly, Alan also had a squeal in his rig which caused him to pull on of his effects out of his Arsenal. Scott Bayer turned out to be our only guests.

We started strong and drive through the finish line though the Weigh was like a weight around us as we approached the midnight finish line. We had some good substance prior to all of that including an early Scarlet Fire and a nice combo of He’s Gone –> Other One –> Smokestack Lightning –> Other One –> Stella Blue. We a pretty on top of it So Many Roads which is surprising considering it was late in the night, we hadn’t played it in a long time and I never sang it before.

For the second week in a row, this week’s art work is courtesy of Kevin who created it with my iPad during the jam. Until next week, Freak Out.

    On the face of it, it appears as if we payed only 11 songs. Truth be told, the He’s Gone into the Other One into Smokestack back into the Other One and closing with the Stella was 40 minutes and the proceeding Scarlet Fire was 22 minutes. That’s a substantial deli platter if you ask me.

    It was not just the quantity but the quality of the jams was outstading with seamless transitions; true gazintas, as Scott is fond of saying.

    Wow, listen to the guitar players gush, and describe all that goodness as “meat”. Where have I heard that before? You don’t get that kind if write-up from a freakin’ Catfish John.

    Catfish is a bit more appetizer. Goes with the whitefish.

    As meaty as the jams were, it’s the Stella at the end that stands out for me. When playing it I felt like an outfielder trying to preserve a no hitter in the 9th inning. None of us dropped the ball and the results are stunning.
