Carroll's 55th Street - Back to the Grind of Tuesdays 8-12


The entire band was back together for a week just a couple of days after the Coffee-fest on the Gisland. We were back in Carroll's with no one there to hear us but our very lonesomes and Little Jimmy. You would think that after playing so long on Memorial Day that we would be basking in the glory of our party gig and not really focused on playing good music. The truth couldn't be further than that. From the first note of Getaway it felt as if we were well rehearsed and in good for as opposed to sick of each other. The drums seemed tighter than usual and the rest of us seemed to play with quiet confidence. We were able to get in lots of Garcia Band that we missed at Mitch's party. This included the very original Estimated --> Eyes (of the Maker). An they were pretty good. Some of the better moments of the night. I thought the Wharf Rat and it's 3/4 vocal party was done better than usual. We had structural problems in the Esau and the Like a Rolling Stone. While not perfect, most of the music was very good and lots of fun to play. Can't wait for next Monday.
