I am trying to get a group together for dinner at 6PM here:
http://www.athena-restaurant.net/

It's a Greek BYOB (plenty of package stores in the area). Reservations are necessary in the area before a show. so please let me know if you are interested ASAP. Early also makes parking much easier.

No meet and greet so far, and EC sends his regrets, since he in the middle of his RAH gig

I'll be there but I'm driving down from NYC after work so I'll probably make it just in time for the start if all goes well. Dinner will be that Popeye's off the jersey turnpike for me... not that there's anything wrong with that. Also glad to see Joe's goin to the show, so I don't have to bring my camera.

>Marc




Marc, I thought you told me a few months ago that you were going to Mountain Jam instead.... Now you are not?

The show is sold, out... Will be a great performance!

I'll be there with a friend. Keswick website says with guest Ruthie Foster. Anyone know what to expect from her? Definitely worth checking her out or do I have a few more beverages? If show starts at 8, would you expect DTB by 9:15?

I have only seen her once and that was on the blues guitar tour with Robben Ford and Jorma Kaukonen.

Check it out here:
http://www.moemoephoto.com/?p=285

I liked her quite a bit..... Her voice is strong and great. Her newest album is all gospel songs but she has a large backlog of blues songs. She has a huge infectious smile. Most likely it will be her solo acoustic I would guess so it might be a bit mellow if you are only into electric blues style.

So if you are up for an acoustic set with great vocals, definitely go in... but I'd hate for you to stop having a good time at a bar if you end up not liking it.

Check out her myspace for page to listen to a few of her songs.

I saw a show from the same tour. She has very powerful pipes, and would a great sin-in with the DTB, my pick would be Spirit in the Dark. She also plays keys.

You are right, I forgot she played keys on 2 songs when I saw her. And you are also right that her voice and Mike's voice could possibly mesh well!

Ruthie foster killed last night, she was a great opener and would be a treat as a sit-in with the DTB. I believe she will be doing some more dates with the band, so i hope that happens.

The setlist last night:

Down In The Flood
Sailing On
Done Got Over
So Close So Far Away
Blind Crippled & Crazy
Meet Me At The Bottom
Band Intros
Mahjoun
Already Free
We're a Winner
Leavin' Trunk
Sweet Inspiration
My Favorite Things
E 1
Get Out My Life Woman > Who Knows > Get Out My Life Woman
E 2
Joyful Noise

For the first time, I was not bowled over by the DTB. The setlist was pretty much the standard for the last couple of months, the tempo of several songs, especially Down In the Flood and Meet Me at the Bottom was much slower than in the past. I listened to some old recordings to confirm it.

Derek's playing has moved to a higher level, much as it did with his playing with the ABB at the Beacon. He did some amazing new things in Done got Over and My Favorite Things.

But somehow, for me (and my daughter as well) there was very little energy and synergy with the band. Sweet Inspiration was pretty good. The Joyful Noise encore was the only time I felt they were playing full tilt, and it brought the full crowd to its feet.

If I only went to one or two shows a year, I probably would have though it was great. But this experience did not compare favorably to any other DTB show I have seen.

I kinda agree, Alan. I don't know if it's because I've been to so many shows recently, 7 since October. It would have been 8 if Rose didn't go and break her shoulder. Lame reason not to go.

A friend and her son came with us and they loved the show.

Given that, I can't miss Derek any time I have the chance.

I raise the bar very high for this band, and they pretty much always deliver the goods, so last night was a surprise. I am still glad I went.

I also agree about excuses... Rose should not let something minor like a broken shoulder keep her from going to DTB shows. Same for Bert for letting her job get in the way... I have made it clear to my boss that music comes first. Of course, I am self employed.

I also agree that the DTB is never to be missed.

Sort of refreshing to hear a mediocre review of dTb. Reminds us all they're only human! Still wish I could have been there for the comaraderie!

that was by far one of the best shows i have ever seen, and absnj i think i might have saw you at the concert due to a hat you might have been wearing? i was sitting third row dead center, were you taping the show?

My wife commented that it was a real good show, but not great. IMO Things seemed a bit too long, Sailing On isn't a favorite. On the plus side, it's the first time I've ever seen 2 encores by DTB, and I saw Derek toss his slide into the crowd afterward. I stopped by to say hello to Derek, and the kid in front of me was thanking him for the slide. Derek was friendly and gracious as always.

If the band is within 2 hours from home(SE Pa), we're there. Next DTB show for us is in MD on 8/15, a really cool outdoor venue with Joe Bonamasa preceding, hope they play together.

One more thing, Ruthie Foster is by far the best opener I've seen in a lot of years, great singer.

Saw that slide toss.
That kid is lucky I didn't get a good look at him.

I'll be there in August, too.

That was me- the hat courtesy of Cinderalla (MrsYankweed). I did record the show and there were several others as well. If I had a gun, the guy who was banging on the stage in front of my mics (even after I asked him to stop) would not have left the venue.

edtyre is as fast as lighning- his is the version up on bTree and Dime. I hope some of the others surface as well.

Highlight for me was Already Free. My Fav Things is always great too - although it seemed to lack some of the flow. Agree with the other opinions - good show by DTB but not great by their standards. I always make it to the Keswick but am always frustrated by the crowd - you kind of go with flow with regards to stand/sit but they always sit at the Keswick - as they did last night until the second encore. Wonder if the band's energy (or lack of it) reflects that of the crowd?

i have to agree with absnj. the show was good, not great. i think we can all recognize by now when the band is on fire and when it is not. to me, things did not get interesting until We're a winner was played. it seemed like everything before then was missing a step and the crowd agreed. they did not get involved until after that song and then it was a different concert.
