Jeff Mattson is a monster!!

#128695 2 years, 4 months ago
Hey, I just did a three night run of DSO shows in Florida and I gotta say that Jeff Mattson is a mega-monster-master-musician that can't be denied! He made the place explode over and over again every night. Last night was an original set list, check it out:

Show: 2044 • 03/03/2012 Revolution, Ft Lauderdale, FL

Original Setlist

One: Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower > Feel Like A Stranger ; Here Comes Sunshine ; Lazy Lightning > Supplication ; Box Of Rain ; Bird Song ; The Music Never Stopped ; Rubin And Cherise

Two: Playing In The Band > Terrapin Station > Uncle John's Bands > Playing jam > Good Lovin' > drums > space > Saint Of Circumstance > Visions Of Johanna > Playing In The Band > Morning Dew

Encore: Hey Jude > Uncle John's Band reprise

I mean, come on, could you have invented a better set list? Visions of Johanna? Are you kidding. Forget about it!! Wow!!

Matt is definitely a beast. That whole band is tight. We are not getting our April shows here. Drats ! Hopefully some late summer, or early autumn shows.

Ft. Lauderdale was BEYOND packed. I think they just kept selling tickets without keeping count - the fire marshall would not have been pleased. While the music was absolutely incredible, there was a significant # of : Talkers, singers/yellers, spillers, drunks, bumpers, and statues - even up near the rail! I suppose this is becoming more and more the rule than the exception - I used to be able to tune this stuff out but its freakin everywhere!

DSO is killing it!

Donna's voice, like a fine wine, has improved with age. I've always been a fan of hers and the years she performed with the Dead are some of my favorite, but I'll readily acknowledge there were times when she subtracted more than she added to the equation.

I just caught them a couple weeks ago here. Yeah man, they play the songs with such sincerity & love ya can't help but enjoy it! They manage to pull off space really well, lacking all the electronical-technologic-hoo-ha the Boys had. Mattson could rip tho; some truly inspired playing there! And I really dug seeing such an incredible amount of really young kids totally getting into it! There is so much hope for the future!!!!
