Show was excellent in every way... Band performance, crowd, setlist, and a surprise appearance by Bela for the first time in years.

Loved the 2 sets! We generally go to one show a year so this gave us a chance to hear as many of our favorites as possible.

Always great to go to Blossom. Such a beautiful venue. Great tailgate with my good friend Bruce and the DMB Family Dreaming Tree crew. Got nice and buzzed for this show. We were in the pit for this one so it was nice and intimate. Pit at Blossom is really mellow. Show was pretty good. Blossom never gets great shows, but solid. BOWA was the highlight. That and Bela Fleck. That was sweet. No Cornbread after Spaceman.

I was not a big fan of the encore, but the overall set list was good. There just didn't seem to be a very good energy in the band or the crowd compared to most other shows I have been to. The crowd in the lawn was terrible. People were throwing beach balls around and talking the whole time and not even paying attention to the show. Seeing Bela Fleck was pretty awesome though.

I loved the acoustic set followed by the full set. Bela Fleck being there was an awesome surprise. The encore of Some Devil, Crash and Grey Street was as good as it gets. Crowd was buzzing and it was a fantastic show.

Very strong show. Second five-star show at Blossom in as many years. Really liked the acoustic set; was great seeing it from the pit! Ants was definitely the highlight from the acoustic set (would love to see it as an acoustic set staple). Grace Is Gone was definitely a highlight as well. Strong version of #41. Really like Crash Into Me in the encore. Was great to see Best Of What's Around, although Dave flubbed the song... oh well. Overall, great show, only disappointment was that there were 9 repeats from Blossom 2013.

Daves voice was really great tonight. Set had kind of a weird flow. Hightlights: Bartender, SDL, IBYU, 41, Grey, Crash, Rapunzel, Warehouse, Grace, BOWA. Bela was really really awesome. He made spaceman enjoyable. Overall pretty good show.

This is a review of the show itself, not the entire Blossom experience, which was great (got to meet lots of cool people tailgating). First, the acoustic set was great and totally blew me away, but there was just too much insanity going on. I was high as a kite and I didn't even smoke anything! Dave was definitely spot on when he said, "It smells like someone's smoking reefer", although I think it was more than just that. The band seemed to be kind of off on the electric set although it was cool to hear some songs I haven't heard before (BOWA, Grace is Gone). The place was pretty wasted by the end of the show. I helped a sweet, but very drunk girl find her friend and she thought Warehouse was Two Step! All in all, I think I'm done with Blossom, although I have high hopes for Burgettstown tonight.

Only planned show of the summer (boo), so first and only experience of the two-set concept. Not a bad way to mix things up a little, but was disappointed in the lack of additional stage time vs. what I was expecting. The setlist itself was middle of the road, but things perked up when Bela Fleck walked (whaaa?!) appeared on stage during set 1. He guested on Snow Outside and then Spaceman and Grace is Gone during the main set. Not the best of song selections IMHO, but he did turn otherwise low points of the show into something special. Getting the tour debut of BOWA was the highlight of the night, and never can complain about Grey St and Rapunzel as closers.

Really good show/time! I cant hear enough of Warehouse and Rooftop. BOWA was a great surprise. When STJL came on I was jammin' my ass off!! The Riff brought the show to a screeching halt, my god what a terrible place for that song in the show. Killed the vibe, I think that experience changed that song for me.

I went to Nobelsville and saw pretty much the same concert as Blossom. Rarity way down and a bit of a disappointment.

Acoustic set was great and seeing Bela was a nice treat. This is someone selfish of me, but after attending Deer Creek and seeing something like 50 different songs I was hoping for something more that hadn't been played in this area or last year at this venue. They did it with grace and bowa but there were a lot of repeats from the Live Trax show last year,.

Great venue. Clean, outdoors, nice lawn, and wood backdrop. First show I saw acoustic or two sets. Great thought, great show, DMB kicks ass as always.

Dave always treats Cleveland so well. You can always tell he's in his element when at Blossom. LOVE when he starts with Bartender. And was a huge fan of Some Devil (solo) as part of the encore. Very personal and reminded me of how great of a song it is. FINALLY heard Crash. After 8 years of waiting.

First show! Overall a great experience. Loved being in the lawn, experiencing the crowd singing along, popping beach balls in the air to Ants Marching, etc.

First off, as others have said, the crowd on the lawn was terrible! Incessant babbling about stupid stuff for almost all of both sets! I was about ready to tell ppl to STFU, but instead of wasting my time with that, decided to just tune them out. Once I did that, the show was good but not great. The setlist had an odd feel/flow to it, which I couldn't follow most of the time. That was #39 for me. Not sure if I'll come back to this venue again, as there are many others where the crowd is a bit more respectful of the music.

THE PIT IS SO SMALL! Got a set list after, the encore was supposed to be Drunken Soldier Grey Street. Instead it was Some Devil Crash Into Me Grey Street

First, the band was incredibly tight and spot on tonight. Haven't seen them since the Star Lake show in 2009, which was a magical show that no other show will ever live up to. But the guys really nailed it tonight. The set list was definitely odd, but no real downers for me and the energy was incredibly high. Such a good mix of strong favorites. As someone else mentioned, Bela made Spaceman enjoyable. And wow, can that guy play. No one around me knew who he was though. Bartender, IBYU, Warehouse, STJL, #41, Grace, Why I Am, and BOWA were my highlights. Plus 6 songs I've never heard live. Rooftop was also awesome. That song has come a long way. Great energy from band and crowd, great seats, Bela, and a very strong 3 song closer earned this a 5 for Blossom.

The band's energy was great as always, but the set-list was somewhat on the slow and depressing side (could have been my shitty mood for the evening). Stellar lineup of people, as always. My first time seeing Bella Fleck.

For me I loved the second set. Best of What's Around is a song I've been waiting to hear and wasn't disappointed. Bela on Snow was amazing Didn't much care for the accoustic set, but they played well. Just not my preference. It's hard to beat the 2013 show here, but it was darn close.

Great show. I loved the variety though they repeated several songs from last years set. Boyd was low key and Rashawn & Jeff were having fun all night.

Great show. Bela was magical. Very few minor dips in an otherwise stellar performance. Also, Water Into Wine was a full version, not a tease.

Solid show. Encore was a little weak. My 4-year old had a blast at her first show though.
