Jam – 2011-06-08 – Carroll’s


It seemed like it would be a good jam as there was no Terminal-5 concert, parking was easy and we all got there early and were ready to play at 8:00.  We had no guests for the night but Alan was back so we were back to our 5-man Grateful Dead line-up and away we went.  It started nicely with the Shakedown that had a nice groove. We had no plan or theme for the night and Kevin seemed a little scared about the unknown and we played a 1st set that was typical if not too hot, but a nice chunk of music that was worthy of our attention.

That lead to a break and the second set was a knockout.  We played a big 4-song segment that required another break to get our feet and mind back under ourselves.  We must have played hard because I woke up with a left wrist that was killing me.

Ironically, the last set ended with Scott leading us off to an Other One as if we were going to play for another half hour.  A last gasp burst of energy that came out of his final reserves.  Lets hope we fill our tanks and get set for next week.

    It was a good night for me. It was good to be back though I didn’t think I would last the second set; but I got the second wind, and a third.

    I recall the first set was actualy strong, eclectic with some good moments. I recall the Bird Song as very exceptionslly proficient yet brimming with x-factor inspired excusions.

    I look forward to the MP3s, and next week!
