Uh how often will you see a show where the boys are starting the encore after midnight? After the 1 song curfew imposed bs in NJ the show before this was great to see. Also cool to see Branford and hear some new songs debut

Best Crush and Jimi Thing I've heard

Songs were jammed out. Timmy was on fire but not up in your face. He created a couple of outros that wouldn't have happened without him. Good crowd the band was tight! Branford sounded like Roi a few times - He blew the roof off

First show of the tour for me... amazing all around. Love the acoustic set, loved hearing 2 new songs, Branford was awesome. Only complaint was the late start and late ending...but looking forward to Mansfield tonight!

Awesome night. This felt like the greatest hits, which kept the energy high. Loved the not-drawn-out Two Step, Warehouse & DDTW are always a pleasure. Slowed down a bit for Big Eyed Fish but I love that jam. Acoustic set was also on point. Stay or Leave is always like running into an old friend for me. Fabulous vibe and energy in the pit (especially for a CT show, where I find ppl are often crabby and rude.) Another one for the books!

first show in the pit. aside from some antics from crazy people in the pit, what a great show and great experience! 13th show. boyd was on fire! acoustic had a sort of bumpy feel to it, high energy songs, then back to low, but the music was great. IBYU was a weird set closer but a nice gem. electric set was awesome. LIOG was great, boyd on fire. new songs were a little slow, but gotta appreciate what the band is trying to do, nice to see songs for first time ever played. guests were great, lots of classics (crush, WH, DDTW, acoustic two step, jimi) mixed with brand new stuff and some gems (Big eyed fish, IBYU, the new song debuts). I loved it.

Show had some boring slow spots, some of the jamming was uninspired (e.g., #41). The first song with Branford Marsalis was kinda lame, he barely played anything and it was very slow moving. However, the Jimi Thing with 4 "horny horns" was incredible! Heard a new song for the first time played (although I felt it wasn't particularly memorable). p.s. HATE the traffic on I-84, have to remember to leave an hour earlier for any Hartford shows.

Highs and lows. It was worth going to, but the new songs are averaging below par. I know Dave is writing more directly about subjects and that the songs are getting "sweeter," but there's something to be said about symbolism; the listener can enjoy the song more while say, thinking about what it all means.

Another Excellent Show. The Lovely Ladies shine & Branford Marsieles joined in for a couple songs.

Awesome show. Accoustic set was amazing and it was great to hear a few new songs. Was really hoping to hear nancies or the stone but still a great show. Disappointed they only were here for 1 show for some reason this year but always great to see them. On to saratoga in a few weeks.

Really great show-- of the three new songs Black & Blue Bird and Virginia In The Rain were fantastic. Death On The High Seas was a bit of a sleeper today. The whole show was solid, though. Good encore-- fantastic acoustic set-- lots of great song choices. One more up-tempo song would've given this show a 5-out-of-5 for me.

Took my daughter for her first show. Outstanding. Marsalis playing Spaceman was out of this world. May be the best ever. Listen to Marsalis go at it. They rocked and I listen to this concert all the time.

I've seen better shows. Had too many slow spots in the setlist and I wasn't crazy about Death on the High Seas.

I have no problem in rating this show 5 stars. Acoustic set was a little boring (hated TMTT and You and Me) but was overall ok. Electric set was near flawless. Loved the new songs, great performances and solos from the band, and Branford and Jumaane killed it. Great time, and a great show!

Was in pit. Great show, great energy from the band. The crowd was old school fans, and the band felt it. Great setlist with a bunch of classic and some newer stuff thrown in. Even some debuts. Just a fantastic night for the band.

Band sounded great but I wasn't the hugest fan of the set list. Very stop and go with the piano songs mixed in after songs like DDTW. Still, it's Dave and seeing him is better than not.
