Great show...my 30th. Good energy....great guests...only low point would have been the encore...otherwise it was great. Especially from the 3rd row center.

Man, thought I was going to get to hear Let you down at first, what a tease, but then #41! First time seeing Jeff Coffin, great on Two Step.

Crowd sucked big balls, and the encore was a little disappointing, but the show overall was awesome... two step, #41, and nancies, warehouse were among the best ive seen and there were guests

This show was Awesome! #41 is the best opener imo, and I was very happy to get it at this show. Hi-light was Futureman and Jeff Coffin coming out to jam on Two Step. For anyone going to future shows at AmSouth the party is at the Holiday Inn!

AWESOME show...nice setlist...41 as an opener, and a first for me. also, first for Warehouse, WWYS, & TwoStep...TwoSTep kicked ass...20+ minutes...was hoping for WatchTower as an encore tho...but, definately the best show i attended this year!

my first dmb show ever. Best show to lose my dmb virginity at. best weekend of my life. amazing

User: dcrowley
Review:
Great show. It was slow near the beginning but after 45 mins or so it just got crazy and I loved it. Jimi Thing scat/outro was just awesome. That was easily my favorite part of the show. That and the special guests. Carter/Futureman was sweet. Coffin wailed. Can't wait for ATL. I handed out some CDs of a 2003.9.11 compilation I made to some random people and a few people around me. I hope they like it!

Section 7, Row P, Seat 18... Another show I taped, another show with the Lady. This was a hell of a show. Nashville is home to some incredible performers, 3 of which, showed up this night to the concert. First off, Jeff Coffin and Futureman came in and played on Two Step, and it was crazy hot. Future and Carter had this dueling drummer thing going on and there was this huge solo from Jeff Coffin. The whole thing lasted like 18 or 19 minutes. The best part of the night wasn't that, as good as it was. It was Jimi Thing. Damn. I don't know how much most people know about Nashville, but I assume everyone knows there is a shit-ton of studios there. Well, there are a small group of incredibly good studio musicians who get most of the gigs on most of the biggest albums released. Well, one of those musicians happened to have lived in C-ville back in the day and played with DMB at one point. Mike Durham, if you ever have the chance to see him, is well worth the price of admission. His shit rocked the house...he played on Jimi Thing, and it was phenomenal. His playing, alone, would have been great, but what his playing did to Dave, was even cooler. It was an excellent example talent feeding talent. Dave started his skat, after Mike's solo, with some line about how "I used to dream of playing guitar like that, man" and went crazy with the skat. It's the best version of Jimi Thing I've ever heard, and I was there and I recorded it, and it makes me extra proud.

Great show, probably ranks as one of the best I've been to.....until the encore....I mean WAYG?!? Granted, I don't normally bitch about the band, cause everything they do is great, but I thought that was a little ill placed in the set. Other than that, Jimi Thing with special guitarist and Two Step with Jeff and FutureMan were the dopest versions I've ever heard. Band really enjoyed each other tonight, lots of smiles, and good jams!!!

Tight show! Met Futureman and Jeff Coffin - great guys. Thanks Jess and Eric

User: DMBCrazy81

Just got back.. which means I'm certifiably insane. What a show! My notes from the 8th row :D I was pretty shocked by the #41 opener because I knew that Jeff and Futureman were backstage.. so I expected it mid-set. STAY was the absolute highlight of the night for me.. it really seemed like it would never end. Dave kept laughing at Butch when he would sing the Lovely Ladies parts.. haha. Mike Durham added absolutely nothing to Jimi.. I mean he played, but it wasn't anything special... Dave's scat outro to it was AMAZING though.. almost as if he was telling a story, only in scat instead of English. Best 2Step I've ever heard live or on recording. Coffin is just a beast.. he was having some IEM problems, so a techie came and just took them out for him mid-wail. Carter was laughing throughout the whole show. Nice to hear Help Myself full-band, not many people knew it. OK now the good stuff.. he teased LET YOU DOWN before #41.. he played the full chords for it a couple times, then just laughed and shook his head. ARGH DAVE! haha .. He also teased LIOG before playing the encore WAYG, again playing some of the chords softly. I fully expect some LIOG tomorrow.. err tonight.. in Atlanta. Knew they would close w/ WYA b/c they were tuning his electric during the LONG break. Overall.. 2Step, #41, Jimi, Stay, Warehouse.. WOW. 3 guests. Great energy.

Had a great time...real nice suprise with #41 as opening song...another great version of Two Step was played, and an awesome Jimi Thing with Mike Durham again. The encore was ok, could have chosen a better song than Where Are You Going, but it was a great show otherwise.

User: DTRFFdmb
Review:
great show. 41 opener nice. would have liked to hear more people sing "honey (hani)" as opposed to whoos in the outro, but oh well. decent energy could have been less talking. futureman and jeff were amazing especially future on the drums. mike durham tore up jimi thing with a little hendrix mixed in. enjoyed what you are but could have done without WAYG. good show. happy im goin to ATL tonight though.

Great set list, but Little Rock spoiled me. I was a little disappointed that he came out to Where are you going for the encore... I suppose he had to throw something in there for the candy davers, but he did a little be bop jam thing that was absolutely incredible!

This was our very first show. I know some people didn't enjoy it nearly as much as we did, and I think that's a real shame. This show was amazing. My girlfriend who is from Brazil has never had much of an opportunity to get closer to the band until moving to the United States. So, the setlist for this show, her first show seemed arranged just for her and she could not contain her tears of joy throughout from start to finish. Me, I was simply floored by the fact that I found myself standing before a stage of real musicians... not just a band, or some flash in the pan group... musicians who do it for the love. They earned my admiration and respect this night.

User: INSPIREDbyDAVE

Had lawn seats for this one, but the lawn crowd in Tennessee was laid back and mellow, which made the show as enjoyable as being in the reserved seats. The setlist speaks for itself. Opening with #41 set the tempo for an amazing show, we couldn't be let down. Seeing the 3 guests join in for Jimi Thing and Two Step was real cool. Dave's scat 'outro' to Jimi Thing was the best I've heard so far, Bartender's passion was definetely there, and the 20 minute Two Step fits in with the highlights. One of the best shows I've seen!

WOW! Last year at Antioch was just so-so, but this show was off the hook! Dancing Nancies was great and Help Myself was awesome too. Two Step with Coffin and Futureman was the best I've ever seen or heard. Carter and Futureman just fueled one another and seemed to go on and on. It was awesome. The warehouse crowd was lackluster to say the most, but the vibe overall seemed good. The encore could have been better, but the jam made the show one of the best I have ever seen.

What a great show! 41 as an opener was beautiful. The set was packed with good stuff. Loved the guests as well.

User: joyfulgirl
Review:
This show was off the charts...I loved it! 41>Everyday, so fun! Two Step, Jimi, jaw dropping. Bartender, like going to church and getting the Holy Ghost. I have nothing negative to say about the show, it was awesome! The overall experience of this show was just strange for me personally. I got married in July and went to this one with my new hubby. We both had a great time for sure but clearly everythings different and will not be how it used to be.

User: jprzybys

Wow, the setlist tonight was amazing. The energy never stopped. I kept expecting there to be a song that would slow it down, but it never came. Highlights: Warehouse: Sounded like a salsa jam near the end before "that's my blood down there..." was really jammed out Guitar solo in jimi thing was awesome, and Dave's scat was off the hook:) Two Step!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "We'd like to bring some friends out to jam with us" This two step rocked!!! Coffin tore up his solo and then everyone just stopped playing and Carter and futureman jammed for at least 5 minutes.

very talented opening band!! amazing guests, best version of two step ever, hilariously awesome scat in jimi thing...DEFINITELY worth the 5 1/2 hour drive, missing an o.chem. exam, and getting a $150 speeding ticket....gotta love dmb...you guys rock my world like none other...thanks sooo much for an incredible evening...see y'all soon, no doubt! (ps-was the random encore because it was almost 11 when they came back on stage and therefore had to make it short, or was it planned like that???)

Great show! I loved the #41 opener, and Granny was a treat to hear again. Jimi Thing with Durham was incredible. Dave's scat was great and the crowd really dug it. Two Step with Jeff Coffin and Futureman was equally (if not more) incredible. The encore left a little something to be desired, but still an excellent show.

Great show. This is the third year I've been (all at Antioch). I really enjoyed the #41 --> Everyday transition they made. Caught me totaly off guard. Then to top off the opening, i loved how the crowd kinda pushed the band into a little #36 improv during everyday. The jimi thing scat outro was great, definately the hight point of the night. My only complaint, like everyone else, was the Encore. I was fine with WAYG, but WYA just cant end a set. Watchtower would have completed the night perfectly for me.

7th show...probably 2nd or 3rd best....wouldve been best ever if instead of WAYG they played Halloween, but then who wasn't wanting it. Good crowd for the most part....loved the guests....caught the LYD tease but didnt recognize LIOG...finally saw warehouse after 7 shows.....lots of lovey songs, very friendly loving vibe....great great evening....Amsouth security guards are assholes and completely out of line....something should be done!

User: titanzrule32
Review:
AMAZING SHOW! An incredible setlist, but I was somewhat preoccupied throughout the show. I was with all my friends from home so it sort of became a social event rather than a concert. Anyhow, just the fact that #41 was the opener made the show awesome by itself. Not only this, but the #41--->Everyday transition was amazing. Granny, Crash, Stay, Bartender, WWYS, WTWE all were great versions. However, the personal highlights of the show were: 1)the nancies-->warehouse "trasition" where the band stopped after nancies, walked off the stage, and then ran back on to the stage to start warehouse...that was great. 2)the guest singers for Jimi Thing and Two Step. Overall, this was an amazing concert, but I was wishing for a Watchtower encore. What You Are is a song I like, but not as the final song of the encore. Anyways, it was an amazing setlist and show. I love you Dave!!!

It was amazing. I sat in the 14th row and the energy was tangible. The only thing that made it not the best show I've ever been to was that they didn't close with Ants Marching. Other than that, it rocked.

Best Dave show I've seen energy wise and crowd wise (from where I was sitting). However, encore sucked. He needed a big punch after closing the set with Two Step. Maybe Watchtower or Halloween would have given him that.
