    Yo!! You were at the Red Rocks '95 show?!? That's incredible! When that live album was released in '97, it elevated my passion for this band 100x. So cool that you got to be there for such an epic and now-famous show! Would love to hear what you remember of the show if you recall anything about the day, getting into the venue, the performances, the general vibe during the show and after, etc. Living vicariously through you!

    Re: Did You See The Original 5?

    I had a quick look through my tour stats and the almanac... from what I can tell, I saw 10 shows with the Core 5:

    5.29.98 (my first show!)
    6.14.99
    6.15.99
    6.26.99
    6.27.99
    6.22.00 (excited for this upcoming release!)
    6.23.00
    6.24.00
    12.4.00
    12.5.00

    There were a couple random guest spots for one or two songs in there for some of them; a few singers from Poi Dog Pondering joining on Stay on 5.29.98, Warren Haynes on Watchtower on 6.14 & 6.15.98 + Crush on 6.15.98, etc., and then some shows with no guests whatsoever (like Alpine '99 and Allstate Arena 2000). But those shows listed above were the Core 5 for most or all of the show; no Butch and no Tim.

    I got to see 30 shows between '98-'04, so a ton of shows in there with Butch and other guests like Tim / Victor Wooten / Maceo Parker / Mitch Rutman at the United Center show on 12.19.98 and things like that. I'm really grateful that I was in high school and college during those prime years and had the opportunity to go to a bunch of shows each summer.

    Re: Did You See The Original 5?

    Hard to answer — I never saw a show without guests (Butch, Rashawn, Tim, Ladies, Buddy), but Butch wasn't a full-time, plays-on-every-song member at my first few shows, so there were some songs that were just the core five

    Like 5.18.01, which was Butch's first show as a full-time member, he only plays on like half of the songs: http://dmbalmanac.com/TourShowSet.as...d=2&where=2001

    Sadly, no. Iím 24 and saw my first show in 2012. Trying to catch as many shows as I can, though. 34 and counting!

    I saw two shows with only the original 5. Summer 99 and Summer 00. One with just Tim and the original five. All the rest with Butch/Rashawn/etc.

    That counts. In my opinion, if you were at a show before there were "guests" on every song and you saw just the core 5 on stage together, you experienced it.

    Saw the OG 5 on 7/30/99 and Roi my first 12 shows. Was at the charlotte show in 08 the day after Roiís accident. Dave said he was beat up pretty bad but gonna be ok. So we were shocked when they said he had passed.

    I grew up in the Denver area and went to a lot of shows at Red Rocks so I don't remember a ton specifically about the day or the pre-show, getting there stuff. I know I wasn't driving yet and I went with some friends who did have cars.

    I was a big fan of UTTAD and had been hearing DMB on KBCO for a while. I was familiar with Tripping Billies as well, but I did not own RTT or the Recently EP yet at that point. I honestly don't recall if I hadn't seen them or just hadn't sprung to buy them--my best guess is that I'd never seen Recently in a store but I had probably seen and not bought RTT, but my memory could be wrong.

    Some of the people I went with were bummed they didn't play WWYS, but going in everyone was pretty familiar with the idea that DMB was not a static set kind of band so you had no idea what you might hear.

    I'll just say, that show was what turned me from a casual DMB fan to a superfan. Sometimes you go to a show for a band you don't know well and the songs they play that are unfamiliar just kinda mean nothing. That night, DMB played quite a few songs I (and probably most of the crowd) was not familiar with, particularly right at the top of the set. But instead of turning me off, most of them hooked me. I bought Remember Two Things that night. I think I used the mail in card from RTT to buy the Recently EP after that.

    It was pretty full but I don't think sold out--though sometimes it was hard to tell at some of those old RR shows because they would do GA at the front of the venue and at the top so if the top looked empty it might just be because all the GA folks had packed in front.

    It only lets you choose either "Saw OG 5" or "Saw OG 5 with guest". What about those of us who saw both?

    I feel very lucky to have seen them with Roi; even luckier to have hung out with all of them and discovered that Roi was not only an outrageously talented musician & contributer to DMB song development; he was also crazy smart and really really funny.

    Those OG 5 created some crazy musical magic, and even more so live, didn't they!

    Ok, I guess I already answered then.

    Was crazy, only an hour after responding to this post we were in our rental car with SiriusXM & DMB channel was playing 6/28/08 show and I wasn't sure if that was Roi's last show but looked it up later, now I know it was. Amazing-sounding show 💖

    Super cool! I was just about to post the same exact thing!

    Missed Polaris Ď99 and Ď00, but hit Riverport in September and caught them with the Flecktones 9/18/00. My next Polaris shows would be 8/5 & 8/6/02.

    More accurate question; when was your last show with Roi? For me, it was 6.06.2008 OG 5 plus Tim,Rashawn, Bella Fleck.
