Superjam, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Fair Grounds Race Course, New Orleans, LA
I was in the balcony, my buddy justin was in the front row, stage right.... 8 feet from dave!! This was a great show before dave came out, with mike gordon joining a couple of songs prior. We just got back this evening but he took some awesome pictures and he was able to capture a couple short vids on it as well. I'll put them up as soon as he gets them to me.
Dave joined Trey at his show on 4/30/05 at the State Palace Theater, not on 5/1/05 at the Fairgrounds.
Superjam was insane- Dave and Trey always good
Dave had SOOO much energy. Really great to see him that close and in that small of a setting. Sure wish he had put that much energy into the show earlier that day
Excellent show overall. The crowd did not seem very receptive to Dave. There weren't any boos or anything, just not a whole lot of cheers. When Mike came out, the place went nuts. I was up in the balcony and the whole thing was actually shaking. A good end to an amazing day of music.
Pretty good show. Very nice that the rain went away for DMB. Many older songs, (only 3 new) setlist was a choice of tunes that would be familiar to a variety of jazzfest fans! "Watchtower" was awesome!!! Got to meet Carter and take some pictures after the show - so I guess that makes it a GREAT SHOW!
I had to work the show, but what an electric crowd. I had never heard Trey before, but the real reason I was excited is because it leaked a week earlier that Dave was going to visit.
