34th since 03' and it was one to remember for sure. Solid first set with no real surprises but an enthusiastic effort from the band, OSW, WAYG stood out for me as fitting well for the acoustic set. Seek up opener for set II was awesome and I think it set the tone for the rest of the night. DIDO SMTS - Bridge - Too Much were jamming and got the crowd jumping. The inclusion of Bela on Dreaming Tree was 'grab your head big & his play both nights couldn't help but bring back some incredible memories of their friendship, his interaction with Jeff was really cool and not something we will see very often. Couldn't really ask for more than what was given for the the encore; Pig / Watchtower put the perfect ending to what was a memorable weekend. Be well, take chances, and see you in Phoenix

Highlights from an otherwise average first set were Nancies and Ants. But as someone else said, Set II smoked from beginning to end. Seek Up to open and Grey Street/Pig/Watchtower to finish are certainly a great beginning and end to any show. And then when you throw in Crush, Song that Jane Likes, Drive In Drive Out, and Dreaming Tree in between with Bela playing along...this was just a great, rockin, show from start to finish. I have been to 72 now and this is easily Top 10 and maybe Top 5.

What a jam! Really enjoyed the energy and flow with a solid set list. Bela was great again too. PIG!!

What a treat! The setlist selection was absolutely on point tonight and there was very little wiggle room for breathing during this ultra high octane show. This was #29 for me and it will absolutely be a vividly memorable one. Drive In Drive Out, Seek Up, and The Dreaming Tree were absolute highlights. And I must say--I thought I was burnt out on Ants Marching and Crush. I was wrong. Lastly--that dual acoustics Nancies was extremely tight. Great show--super pumped to have been a part of it.

Great atmosphere and energy from the band. Audience left a little to be desired, but it was a beautiful evening under the stars filled with great music.

Much calmer show than the first night. More people were there but not many of them up and dancing. Was able to sit front row of the lawn and had a great view.

Ants marching sounded like a cover to me. It was very good

Two stellar nights in a row. After N1 I was trying not to have too high of expectations for N2, but the band was on fire. Much higher energy set than N1. I loved the whole first set. I've been wanting to hear solo Beachball for a while and getting a 2 punch Where are You Going then A Rockin Nancies just set the tone for the night that anything could be expected. OSW, Satellite, Stay or Leave, and Ants were all in the one show I saw last year, still loved them but was hoping for Two Step, Stolen Away, or Pay For What You Get in that set, oh well. Still enjoyed the hell out of it. Boyd burned the building down with his true solo on Ants. The band just totally stopped in the jam and let him go at it for a minute plus. I feel like he has returned to full glory after these two shows and hearing some tapes from this summer. Very strong performance by him. Also, getting Bluebirds in the acoustic set was pretty cool. Seek Up to kick off set 2 was from left field. I never would have guessed it. Drive In Drive Out and Dreaming Tree with Bela Fleck were all I needed to make that set special. Watching Jeff Coffin and Bela jam the end out of Dreaming Tree was spectacular. I was not thrilled with the SMTS>Too Much Ditch Grey Street run to end the set. I get they had to appeal to the masses, but I've heard those songs too many times to feel wowed by them. After such a great first half, I was disappointed by that run. Still not bad by any means. PIG! I've longed to hear that song live for 17 years and finally got it! That capped off the end of the night for me and I quickly forgave them for the set 2 end run. Watchtower is always a favorite, though Dave's voice was struggling through the best parts. It doesn't hit home for me unless Dave is destroying his vocal cords at the end. He was a little reserved, which I don't blame him for having 10 shows to complete. Great N2. Couldn't have asked for anything more except for a 3rd night! Maybe next year since they sold out both! Until next tour season, dave pression begins. I'll be looking for the tapes of this as soon as they are released. Should go down as top 5 or 7 of the tour. Alpine set and tapes smoked. We'll see if the Gorge can top this weekend.

The Set was amazing, decent venue and the Pit was very small. I thought the flow was great and seeing Bela was a highlight for sure. Would have liked a few rarities like Let you down or you never know but overall I think this was a top 5 concert of the year for sure.

Old Dirt Hill was sick and by far the best version ever and dare I say ever will be. That in itself made the show.

This showed smoked from start to end. It had beautiful set openers, strong set-closers, old favorites, a wonderful Pig>Watchtower encore, and a bunch of strong funk numbers in set 2. They played more relaxed and smooth than last night. It will be interesting to compare the Dreaming Tree jam with Bela to the SPAC version, they seemed a little different. Dave is suffering from a sore throat but made a great effort to sing as well as he could.

22nd show. Venue was better than expected. Weather was perfect. Setlist was fantastic. Seek Up opener set the tone for the night. Wish they would have played Two Step at some point during the weekend but it's hard to complain. The band was spot on and Bela fits in so well. 5 stars all the way!

This was my 18th show and easily in the top 5. Energy tonight was awesome, band was on point, setlist was sick!! Highlights for me were acoustic Nancies, OSW, and Ants. Electric Set I can't complain about one song, Dreaming Tree and Grey Street stood out. Encore was Awesome, Pig into Watchtower!!!!

5th Show, favorite for sure. Every show I have been to is new and all the setlists are great. Have no complaints about any show I have been to. This show just seemed to build and build, very intense from start to finish. Great sound, great crowd great haze.
