Great show, only beaten by the overall experience. It was my first time at Alpine, and definitely not going to be my last. I had so much fun before and after the concert that sneaking up to the 10th row only made a great night that much better

Awesome, awesome, awesome! The band had so much energy, they were really into it. Really awesome set list. Robert Randolf opening Grace is Gone, was cool too. One of those shows everyone needs in there collection. 9 out of 10

Minarets, first time I have heard this song...nice jam. Bartender - Nice Version... The STorm - Unbelievable as we were tailgating and watched the wicked winds and lightning from the comfort of my wet truck. So much for my rainfly over our two trucks. Brian - Thanks for the show 1-26-95 bd23... Help Myself - I really enjoy this song, especially during the uplifting verses. Nancies --- Warehouse - I've been waiting for that one...great version, What you Are Closer - I would have liked to make out what Dave was saying...nice touch though. Overall, the crowd both nights were full into it, awesome time and the storm stirred things up nicely. Counting down to next year already!

Totally killer show setlist was sweet to hear had some good rare songs in there. Especially enjoyed hearing Grace is Gone. Lot of Passion in What You Are but it still lead to a bit of a disappointing encore performance. However what totally made this show was the energy of the crowd, it just brought it all together to make it a totally sweet evening that Dave fans of all ages could appreciate.

This show was awesome. The energy was great and the band seemed to feed off of it. The most fun I've had at a Dave show so far.

My friends and I will never forget this show, or really remember it. We partied a little hard that night and had to refer back to the taping for most of the details, last time I'd do that. I came into that weekend really hoping to hear Minarets, and I did. The intro sounded so heavy, and with the smoke rolling through the hills up at Alpine, it really was something to remember (and forget).

it was a great concert. The Song That Jane likes was great, but the encore could have been better I think.

My first Dave show and I don't think I couldn't have been disappointed if I tried, the anticipation of seeing one of my favorite bands was enough no matter what they played. Regardless, I still got awesome versions of Nancies, Don't Drink the Water, Help Myself (somebody fan off carter after that solo!), Minarets, and What You Are. Okay, you "I could do it better" fans who think What You Are was a bad closer? Granted it's not the best, but did you hear those vocals!? that end scream? Try doing that once, and you'll find that bad taste in your mouth wasn't from a bad closer- but blood flowing copiously from your vocal chords...Great show Dave and band- thanks for an amazing time

i had my videotapes and camera bag with several valuable items stolen out of the trunk of my car. Obviously a true nancie wouldn't of done this, im sure it was some drunk person with no respect for karma or morals. The show was amazing, however during warehouse i for a few moments felt like i was going to be sick and had to get out of the pavillion seating . I have a feeling this is when my car was being robbed and my gut was telling me something bad was happening. Which sucks because it was right during intro of warehouse (HO!) anyway... we ended up lighting off fireworks we had bought earlier that day in the "grass" parking lot, and flew back to arizona the next day, minus the video tapes from our whole vacation in chicago, as well as the 7/3 Tinley show i videotaped, and the 7/5 show from the night before. Mad rewards to anyone who knows what was up here.

I had a low DMB IQ at the time and didn't really know most of the songs -- but it made me want to know every word and every note of every song, and see every show within 200 miles, from that point on.

we drove through the worst storm that i have ever been in to get to this show. i swear my car was going to get blown off of the highway by a tornado. the weather cleared. the show rocked. the lawn was a massive mud pit.

It's shows like these that make Alpine such a great venue for the band. This was much better than Saturday night. The band was tight, energetic, and in a surprisingly good mood compared to night one. The crowd was pumped, and that energy was shared well between the crowd and the band... you could hear it in the music. It was a great night.

16th show. Excellent, superb. Stay was great. WYA is not a closer, I left with a bad taste in my mouth. I know I'm a snob, but it just doesn't work for me. Tweeter, then 2 nights at Alpine. 53 songs in 3 nights, 46 different songs, only 7 repeats. 3 nights of perfection, except for two WYA closers. Probably the best weekend of my life. I will go to Alpine every year until they quit playing there.

This was my first DMB show...needless to say, it was the best experience of my life. I am going back to Alpine this year for both nights if I can get tickets.

The Show was a very good set list, and the croud got into the music a lot. The encore could have had better songs, but besides that, it was an awsome show. The venue was also nice, besides all the mud. The opening band was awsome too.

I remember hearing that someone had been struck by lightning in the lot pre-show. When the storm cleared I was hopeful for a redemptive show, but Dave (as well as the crowd) seemed drained. Another great setlist for the most part but pretty uninspired playing. Stay sounded so drab with no lovely ladies, and the encore was a real letdown.

RAINING LIKE CRAZY BEFORE HAND. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WOULD MAKE THE NIGHT BETTER. HOT GIRLS IN SKIRTS MUDD WRESTELING ALL NIGHT. AND WATCHING PEOPLE FALL AND SLID 20 FEET DOWN THE HILL AND TAKE 15 PEOPLE DOWN WITH THEM. A BLAST OF A NIGHT.

Night 2 was good. Nancies and Warehouse were the highlights. Robert Randolph blew me away again. This is the 3rd time I've seen him and he is amaizing.

Wow alot went on today. With the T-storms and all I thought that the concert was going to be cancelled... but God willing it went on as planned... and turned out to be a great night. The band really did a great job and were really on fire tonight. Great set-list. First time hearing Minarets and wow it was really awsome.. Stay totally rocked and the whole crowd really got into it... I never danced so much in my life.. lol:) Once again I really liked the intro into WYA what a great way to end a wonderful weekend up at Alpine Valley I cannot wait till next year, Great experience!

first dmb show....definately didnt appretiate it then as much as i do know.

User: DriveOut
Review:
Kind of so-so for an Alpine show, but at the time I really enjoyed it. FTT actually sounded really good and STJL was a nice surprise for me. The Bartender from this show is one of the better versions I've heard, and Minarets was pretty unbelievable. Weak encore, but the weather and the atmosphere made up for the setlist. There was a huge electrical storm going on in the distance behind the stage during DN->Warehouse that just seemed surreal, especially considering we had clear starry skies above us. The fog rolled in over the top of the ampitheater at the end of the show, it was strange but beautiful. Of course, 7/6 was the date of the infamous lightning bolt, but I didn't see it firsthand. I did see some pretty sweet mudfights during the Robert Randolph set though.

Very nice set list....crowd was not into it though, i think there were too many "Everyday" fans. Encore was also weak. 1st night was much better IMO

It's about time I heard Song That Jane Likes. That song got me so happy. Minarets was awesome, and it was a great set with tons of energy. The sound the venue had to offer was phenomenal, which made the show even better. This show is in the top 3 for sure.

The thunderstorm leading up to this show was crazy, happened to be sitting right next to the folks that got struck by lightning during the afternoon, thank god I was in the car....makes me feel lucky. This show was really good, but I liked the show I attended on Saturday night better. Those who didnt go on both nights missed out on hearing different songs from across the board. I was hoping he'd play #41 for his encore, it would have been better than Digging a Ditch.

This show was my first time seeing DMB live after almost a lifetime of listening to them. We didn't have great seats - lawn (which was an expirience in itself). I have to say i was amazed. So much to take in at once. I can't think of a better place to have been to see dave for the first time. I wasn't extremely happy with the setlist but the expierence just makes up for it. This is a memory that i will never forget.

Yeah, this was my second show, and the second time i saw dave open with dont drink the water, and it was better the second time.
