somewhat predictable set list considering the crowd, which did not even sing the #36 part of everyday. two step, stay, and everyday worked well with this group. they did a great job on those songs though.

First show since Redrocks for me and this one was a bit of a letdown. Figured it might be since it was the first show since the Gorge couple nights ago. Dave seemed tired and the band had little energy. did not enjoy the Stand up songs and Hunger was god aweful. Show had some good moments though-both Shotgun and Idea of you, two new songs sounded great. Robert Randolph on Two step was easily the best moment of the night. Encore was pretty weak and I don't need to ever see Everyday again.

This show was much more laid back than others I have been too, plus our seats were terrible so I didn't feel involved. I'm sure if I was closer I could say it was better. But I'll tell you one thing, I love the new songs!

Quite a mellow show. Was a bit like night one at the Gorge this year. Robert Randolph was smokin' and helped the band wrap the night up strong.

Fantastic evening complete with incredible jams, soul breaking songs, full moon and a shooting start during two step. Great night! This group is only getting better and better imho.

Worst show I've ever seen... The ONLY redemptive thing about this show was the SICK Two Step with Robert Randolph...

Robert Randolph said hi to me because he'd seen me at the other cali shows with my neon pink sign saying going in the right direction. So he waved to me then told the rest of the band to play going in the right direction. Very cool. Got to meet him in irvine and take a picture with him.

what are great time! My friends and I left earler morning from brannan Island and boated and wakeboard all the way up to old sac. It was a weekday so had glass water. I was the captin of this ship lol. At old sac they have a dock you can stay over night at. So we got trashed and stayed in old sac after the show and the next day we wakeboarded all the way back home. I hope they play there next year!

It was a good show, but wasn't my favorite.

Of course the show sounded great and was well performed. These guys are all at the top of their respective musical fields and they enjoy playing live shows. However, the setlist included few songs that I liked and is not really what I was looking forward to hearing after paying over seventy bucks (incl. parking). I was a bit disappointed, but my seats were amazing and I still enjoyed the show despite the way too mellow songs (at least they did not play Where Are You Going!). Two Step w/ Robert Randolph made for one of the best closers I have ever seen; but, the encore was one of the worst. Raley field seems like a good place to catch a game and is not a bad concert venue. Marysville is a PITA to get too; I will never go back there.

AWESOME show! This is my 7th year seeing DMB (around 30 shows) and this is absolutely one of the best shows I've ever seen. The energy was unbelievable! The new songs are amazing! Can't wait for this weekend's shows at the Shoreline...

Very mellow setlist

great show, but parking was horrible. Dave also seemed a little tired, but the Sacramento heat can do that to anyone.

It was AWESOME!!! Dave played some new songs which were great and the vibe was intimate and I could tell they were all having fun up there. The stage set up was great too! I'd love to see Dave at Raley Field again, nice to be so close no matter where you are sitting.

This was a great show. Not as many familiar/common songs as one may or may not like, but the new ones/unreleased were enjoyable. The extended version of Two Step was outragous! They went off on a jam that lasted well over ten minutes! Of course Dancing Nancies had a nice jam as well. All in all, this was a well sounding and produced concert. I'm glad they decided to come to Sacramento rather than Marysville. The traffic, while not as well organized as it should be, was definitely better than Marysville.

saving it for Shoreline...who else heard the I dream of jeannie phrasing during I might die trying! Cool Baseball park setting

This was a very mellow show with the emphasis on new and year-old tunes. Loved the Monkey and Dancing Nancies and Stay made for a strong finish. Crash Into Me is getting a little tired, but that just be me as I've I've heard it @ 4 shows in a row (all the CA shows). Stlil love it every time I hear it. The mood on the floor was great, w. lots of bud in the air and the use of 3 screens that were mostly operating independently was great and better than most places. But, I felt sorry for hte folks in the bleachers, who must've felt miles away. But, Dave was in great form, which must be tough this late in the season, and Carter was awesome on his solos. And, to the dude who saw the Lovely ladies, you gotta share some of that bud! ;-)

Mellow show, but awful venue. Paid for parking only to be hassled by the cops about drinking in the lot, crowd was LAME and venue setup was terrible. Glad I was not in town on my own dime!!

Love the new stuff, they seemed to do a lot more jams then at prior shows, thought it was great. Crowd seemed a bit subdued.

The show was mellow, (but great none-the-less), the crowd was not with it..Who sits during Two Step? Dancing Nancies was a treat and everytime I hear Shotgun I love it more.

User: onthebeach

Great show. Mellow but strong as always. (Crowd was also fairly mellow - thinking too much weed but hey, it's all good.) The boyz did it right. Loving Wings was crazy good. Two Step with Robert Randolph couldn't have been better! Good time all in all. Waiting for shoreline!!!

Robert Randolph played a song for me!

It was fun, altough I agree with everyone else that the crowd was mellow. Highlights: Loving Wings and Two Step. Everyone should have parked across the street over the bridge in order not to deal with the traffic. Carter, Dave, and Stefan seemed to be having the most fun, I seriously did not see a smile out of Boyd or Leroi. Hopefully thery going all out at Shoreline this weekend - night #2 is always better then #1. The party is in section 103!!!!

I had won the Facebook contest for front row tickets but did not call back fast enough but was hooked up for the Saturday show!!! Raley field was AWESOME! 15 minutes before the show a fellow fan sold me a 4th row ticket at face value! Needless to say it was the best show to date! I was able to have some eye contact with Carter and Butch and some with Dave. I REALLY Love Hunger now, it has soooo much energy and when Dave pumped his fist at the very end (SICK!!) Loving Wings was great to hear again. I am a HUGE fan of the new stuff (Break Free, Can't Stop, Sister, and The Idea of You).

All the songs sounded great, but the setlist was too mellow, and I was never that into it. Shotgun was nice.

too mellow

User: smccready

Of the 3 shows I've seen, this one was definitely the most mellow - it seemed like it took them a while to get going. I enjoyed the new songs, especially "Sister" and "The Idea of You", and I thought "Stay" made for a strong closer. Sleep Train is a better venue as far as setup and acoustics, though Raley Field is easier to get in and out of. I'll be curious to see where they play next time around.

My favorite memory from this show was when the full moon started rising over right field as they played Satellite. Of course they put up the moon on the stage screens as well. Kady came with me.

THE BEST SHOW!!! Finally he played satelite. It was AWESOME.... Next year will be our 5th year and I am thinking the gorge will be a great 5 year!!

really, truly amazing show. seriously. sure it wasn't my dream setlist, but it was long, the energy really built up and came through in the end, and dave and the guys were simply ON, every single number. They kicked the crap outta those songs, best Stay i've ever heard, If i Had It All was amazing, 2 Step was awsome, Rapunzel was a step slow, but ended huge, the Dixie Chicken Outro to a good loud Crash (which this was) always gets me goin', and even Hunger was unbelievable (go figure, simply fantastic). Dave seriously didn't miss a note the whole time (even though it's the end of the tour he sounded strong!), and the energy was so great on stage that Dave did a serious fist pump at the end of the 2 Step pre-encore finale. Awesome/great 10th show. definitely one of the best i've seen (let's say 4th or 5th of 10 with all of them being kick-ass? Something like that).
