great venue, but they werent prepared for DMB. terrible terrible parking lot access. you WILL sit after concert for an hour atleast before you move.

Dave played some new songs, but the good part was except for "stolen away..." he was able to jam out to a lot of them. He played a very energetic set.

Well because i'm in the Warehouse I was upgraded to 7th row center stage by a beautiful in pink. Ahh, the opening with Dreamgirl was amazing, it really set the tone for the rest of an amazing show!!!

All I can say is that they are tighter than ever and I wish Carter did that kind of drumming that he did on the Stand Up songs live on the Stand Up album...My 13th show...

Great show as usual with a lot of energy. Haven't heard Best of Whats Around in 6 years so that was a nice treat for me.

fuckin awesome, i love these guys i think tonight was number 17 and they rock best setlist of the tour imo

User: czeke16
Review:

Without discussing the fact that the venue was a logistics nightmare, here's my review of the show itself: ASTOUNDING! Incredible energy, heavy jams, and the classics were in full force. The first sold out show ever at this venue, and I'm sure in the future the shows will sell out even quicker. Amazing versions of BOWA, Nancies, BOWA, as well as the new stuff from Stand Up such as Stand Up (crowd was really into this one, very high energy), Hunger for the Great Light, and the jam intensive Louisian Bayou. Nice #36 ---> Everyday, the energy from the crowd and band was outrageous. Really intimate venue in the woods, nice considering other problems. I'll be back next year!

I thought this show was truly amazing...I am from the area and I thought he really enjoyed the crowd...I thought his encore presentation of American Baby and Two Step was amazing...an overall perfect concert

This show had amazing energy and a great setlist. The band was so tight and really clicking with eachother. I was truly pleased and so excited at the end of the night.

Great show. High energy! Having it only 10 minutes from my house was also a plus and having great seats from Warehouse didn't hurt either. I hope they come back next year! Nancies and Warehouse rocked!

Fantastic show, incredible energy from the crowd, the band totally fed off of it. Scranton waited for DMB to play here for years, and they let the band know it.

one of the better dmb concerts, stand up songs are getting better live...jimi thing was good skat wasent the best, dont drink the water was sweet, for first time comming to scranton he preformed well

User: IrishDave23

First time seeing Dave. Awesome concert! The setlist was great, the crowd was into the show from start to finish. Hopefully this results in a return trip to the area.

One of the best shows I've seen...Thanks DMB for playing a great show and finally coming to my neck of the woods!

User: jbandit46
Review:
Amazing show. Perfect Versions of Nancies and a nice 21 minute Two Step for the closer. A lot of older songs and the couple Stand Up songs they played were awesome. I love the short slow breakdown thing during Too Much when I was expecting a fast little Leroi thing. Even American Baby had an even better jam than I thought at the end so the encore was awsome. Loudest crowd I've ever been in. Everyone was singing every song and even before Dave came on everyone was singing the Sublime songs they were playing which was amazing.

This show was memorable to say the least. I have been to 12 shows including MSG and this crowd rivaled it. The setlist was nothing special, but it flowed nicely and the band played with amazing energy throughout the night.

What a GREAT show! This is my eleventh time seeing DMB and this could be the best one yet! Its about damn time they played at Montage. Ive seen shows with better setlists, and Ive seen shows at better places, but this crowd was fantastic! It seemed like the band just drew off the energy of the crowd all night, being best demonstrated with Everyday (highlight of the night). Ive never heard a crowd sing Honey, Honey so loud. The new songs are coming together a lot better now that theyre getting some time on the road, especially Louisiana Bayou.

I really loved it at Montage Mountain. The sound was amazing and the crowd was into it. The only thing that sucked was the parking lot afterwards.

Incredible... As always, the sound was outstanding....The low end of the kick was great. Had a VERY good time!! I took my 3 year old daughter to see the show and I think she loved it more than I did!!

Incredible show! The energy was amazing. The crowd exploded as soon as Don't Drink the Water started. BOWA, Jimi Thing, 36/Everyday, and BOWA definitely all highlights. All in all, amazing show..

For the first time ever DMB came to the Montage Mountain and it was amazing. Marking the first time that this venue has ever sold out, made it a solid night. The crowd was into it from the get go and the band definately followed suit. High energy set list with some classic songs, Crash, Nancies. It was AWESOME. Hopefully they will come back soon !

I was amazed. This concert was great. The rush of the crowd was WOW. This was my first Dave concert and I was glad it was with the whole band. I am hoping with the response from the crowd that DMB will come back again, they were the first band to sellout the montage pavillon. These are gentelman with amazing talents and I am glad I didn't miss it. Come back soon Dave, add a second concert too!!

Awesome show! The new songs sounded great and although it was a little hard to hear under the tent there was a ton of energy and I knew the words anyway. Two Step was awesome and so was Don't Drink the Water.

Very good setlist, and great energy, but it could have been louder. I was as far away from the stage as possible at the rear fence in the lawn, and the sound wasn't that great back there. When walking up front closer to the stage, it was much louder. Favorites for the night were Jimi Thing and Everyday. Hershey should be a good one.

User: spiritualshawn

Awesome show!

User: stackerro
Review:
A very high energy crowd tonight at Scranton, it was my 11th show and one of the loudest that I've ever been at. The setlist was somewhat average but had a good mix of the older stuff and the new. I was impressed with how the new songs sound live. Some of them might become crowd favorites as the years go on. The highlights have to be Dancing Nancies, BOWA and Two Step to close the night. Overall a good show, can't wait till saturday at hershey...

This was DMB's first show in Scranton. It was also the 1st sold out concert at his venue. It was highly anticipated and fully delivered. Let's hope they come back next time around.

grreat show, first of the tour, solid energy and performance, highlight was 2step

User: TMS2787
Review:
A very nice show. I only got to hear on song I hadn't previously - "Everday", which was good with the crowd singing along the whole time. The only problem with the show I had, wasn't really a problem per-say but I had heard 17 songs I already heard, but that has nothing to do with the show itself. The crowd was very in to and that's always a good thing. "Dancing Nancies" sounded great tonight and a very good/energetic "Warehouse". The "Jimi Thing" was most likely the best "Jimi" I've heard in a long, long time. Very nice "Two Step" jam to close the show, even though I don't feel "American Baby" is a good encore song, it worked well with this crowd. "Best Of What's Around" was the other classic highlight of the set. It was good to hear "Hunger For The Great Light" and "You Might Die Trying" again, "Louisiana Bayou" sounded good but was nothing like last Wednesday. Overall a great show with a good flow in the set list, awesome crowd and a good good time!

Best show I've seen out of 7. They built the crowd to a frenzy then kept them there all evening on a lovely night. First sell out ever at this venue. Very high energy show with great set list for my money. Only possible dig was that the crowd was too loud to hear the band at times (darn, what a great problem to have :-). Closing with Two Step was as good as it gets - a prefect close to a perfect evening.

this was my first dmb show, and my fiancee and i made a day out of it. we showed up at about eight in the morning, and throughout the course of the day we made connections with some fantastic people. i really look forward to going again in '06. the show was fantastic, and the people were great.

THIS WAS NEAT. MONTAGE WAS ELECTRIC AND DAVE RESPONDED ACCORDINGLY. HE REALLY PLAYED THE DOORS OFF THIS PLACE AND THE 2 STEP HERE LEFT NOTHING TO BE DESIRED, I WAS TIRED WHEN DAVE WAS DONE. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE BAND'S EXHAUSTION.
