Best show I have seen. I think N1 overall had a better set and little more energy..a lot longer in length too. Glad I got to hear BEF>Bartender. That set the tone early..next 5 songs kept the energy going. They played the best of big whiskey (wia, shake me, seven, you and me, funny). Nancies was great, liked how the crowd started the first verse..second half of the show was even better..the run from crush to shake me was unbelievable..crush was ridiculous as always. so damn lucky>thank you was a cool version..cornbread>recently was a nice surprise and grace is gone was awesome with the sick jam at the end. And thrown in there was another great version of Jimi. Couldn't ask for a better encore..really glad to hear so right..underrated song in my book and one of my favorites..and best version of ants to close..liked how they all huddled around carter while boyd took the center stage..boyd was on fire all night. Tons of energy mixed with some classic songs made it out to be a great time

Great show! Very jammy for a DMB show, which I absolutely loved. Set flowed well. Mainstays, nice surprises, and a few that becoming killer tunes of summer 2'10.

first 3 songs exactly the same as Hartford Night 2, alot of similarities to the Hartford shows. It was at SPAC, but there was nothing too mind-blowing in the setlist. Disappointing when you look at how epic previous SPAC setlists were.

This show was incredible, especially for a SPAC N1. I was hoping Big Eyed Fish would open and it did. Kit Kat Jam was awesome. So Damn Lucky-->Thank You tease was very entertaining. Grace is Gone jam was fantastic. Jimi Thing and the sexy mother fucker interpolation was great. Cornbread-->Recently was sick. Just an amazing show, almost as good as night 2 which has not been the case the two previous years.

Finally got to hear Fishtender, and loved every second of it. Built up tons of energy over 1st 5 songs only to let it down with Funny the Way It Is. Grace Is Gone with hoedown jam was sick, even though I'm not a GIG fan and already heard it at Darien. Recently was great, wish they played the full song instead of a partial. Didn't entirely live up to my lofty expectations, but a great show nonetheless.

The crowd's energy and song knowledge was absolutely unbelieveable. Best crowd I have ever seen. Even most of the lawn knew a good deal of the songs.

Great show and energy from the band. Big Eyed Fish>Bartender opener was stunning. Kit Kat Jam was a huge highlight. So Damn Lucky>Thank You>Grace Is Gone>Corn Bread>Recently run was insane! So Right sounded great.

Excellent show! The encore was absolutely perfect with So Right and Ants Marching. I think Night 1 had a more engaging setlist than Night 2. And Night 1's album variety wasmuch more diverse and DMB touched upon a little bit of everything. Well worth it.

Similar show to N2 in Hartford. Always great to hear BEF>Bartender open a show. Kit Kat Jam had no real words as i think Dave couldn't think of any on the spot. Dreamgirl was a surprise and it isn't that bad of a song. So Right in the encore was a nice choice but i wish they had played a full Recently. Please god no more Cornbread

One of the best N1 shows of the past 5 years. Recently was the highlight. Powerful version of Kit Kat Jam, Grace is Gone w/ a ho down thrown in and Sexy MF got the crowd pumped. High energy show. Happy Birthday Stephan. Bring on N2 ...

Amazing Show! Loved the BEF--> Bartender to kick it off and the new BW songs did not dissapoint. Would have liked to hear something other than Shake Me to close but the awesome encore made up for it! Spac never dissapoints

This show was on point! Nice mix of tunes, but the big thing that I was impressed with was the massive improvement in the Band's improv skills from last year's tour. Everyone's had time to work with one another and build some chemistry and it showed Sat night. When songs like Big-Eyed Fish, Kit Kat Jam, and So Right make returns to the rotation, that shows they've been practicing and working hard. Could be more happier with tonight's show. Corndbread>Recently was a riot with the crowd, really got them moving as did the Bluegrass jam at end of Grace which was awesome! See you back tomorrow night...can't wait!

FishTender great way to start
Dreamgirl not a favorite but cool to pull out older songs
Thank You tease 'different' but cool

Boyd nights are great... Nancies, Crush, Grace, Ants

The band was so on and having a great time
Dave saying 'you all are making us have fun tonight!"

Grace Is Gone was out of this world
Mini Carter solo into Cornbread into Recently into every member taking turns on solos back to Recently was AMAZING
Rashawn messing up one of his solos and laughing his ass off was priceless

Thought the show was over after You And Me and THEN they pull out Jimi Thing and SMLAM !!

Teasing The Last Stop (and then not playing it N2 either was a little mean)

So Right a very welcome addition this year
One of the best Ants I've ever seen and the way the band was all huddled around Carter with Boyd playing solo for like 10 frickin' minutes, he must have been exhuasted

Seriously debating if it was the best show I've ever seen... great night, thanks!

Which leads me to N2, not sure if N2 disappointed or there was just so much anticipation that N2 was going to be the best
Even if they played Last Stop AND Halloween N2, N1 was better

The band's energy was definitely higher N1 though

Big Eyed Fish opener!! Nice. I have not heard So Right in a while. That was a nice surprise. The new tunes are really starting to take shape and are very different from a year ago when they were first released.
