Great show. First time seeing DMB without Boyd. Thought they sounded great. Rashawn did a nice job of filling in Boyd void. Buddy was good but fell short on Seek Up.

Without Boyd its just not the same. You don\\\'t realize the sounds he\\\'s making until they\\\'re not there. Nannies and Ants, for example, just don\\\'t sound the same. The band clearly tries to replicate those sounds, particularly with the horns, but you can\\\'t replicate Boyd\\\'s sound and energy. Don\\\'t get me wrong - even bad DMB is better than just about any other music. It was well worth attending this show. But without Boyd, its just not DMB to me. He\\\'s an essential part of the band, IMO.

I really had high expectations for this show. But, 8 repeats from the night before and SMLAM as closer is really a huge disappointment! The band is way better than this. Unimaginative setlist. As my good buddy Scott likes to say, they mailed it in!

Great show! I knew that I was going to miss the fiddle sound, but Buddy Strong adds his own flavor to this mix and I really do like it. Overall, the band had a great jam session (Seek Up was phenom), Nancies>Warehouse was killer...but SMLAM to close? That stung a little. Really enjoyed the crowds energy, except for the person next to me who refused to dance, stand, or even tap her foot. I thought I was stuck next to a statue until she left after Ants! BYE!

Loved the show! They seemed to be in a funky mood tonight and songs from the new album were awesome live. While yes, Boyd can't be replaced, I disagree that DMB can't be just as good. Songs sounded fresh with the band doing different things without Boyd there, and Buddy Strong stole the show IMHO! Loved his addition. Agree that 2 covers was too many given DMB's catalogue. Having said that, they killed both of them!

Solid show! Loved old dirt hill, warehouse, and gray street! The little scat at the end of digging a ditch into ants was really amazing too, with one more little scat added in towards the end of ants. Didnít love shake me like a monkey ending and wish there were less covers and more dmb, but great show!

Terrible rude racist people on the lawn that ruined the first 20 minutes for me. Also the front left speaker on the lawn was out which was also pretty annoying... Got better throughout the show.

The night was awesome. First time at Shoreline- now one of my favorite venues. The band sounded perfect. My 49th show!

I had an absolute blast at this show! I took my nine year old daughter for her first Dave experience and we just had the best time. However, I also went to the Tahoe show the night before and was shocked to hear 8 repeats. Also, I thought Shake Me Like a Monkey was a bit of a let down as a closer. Still, it's Dave. There's no such thing as bad Dave!
