Opening bands suck but...

#53055 3 years, 1 month ago
i usually hate when theres an opening band, cause i see it as just taking time away from the band i paid to see, and even if i like the opening band, the rarely get to stretch out, and well, lets just say i like seeing "an evening with" style shows rather than seeing two bands in one evening, BUT...
if furthur had to have an opening band who would like to see open for them.
i say
Dave Nelson and whomever he wants to play with

If you stumble, make it part of the dance.

I saw the doobie bros open for the "dead" in 09 and wasn't expecting much but they actually blew me away! Also th Allmans would be tight.

I agree with the opening acts but sometimes its nice cause you get to see someone that you otherwise wouldn't get tickets to go see.

Why not throw Jackie Greene in there for opening up for further.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

Agree on most opening bands sucking, I've had a couple pleasant surprises but usually I'm smokin a bowl in the car or still driving in when they do their thing.
With that said I vote for a nice Hot Tuna opener for Furthur with Phil an Bobby comin out eventually and throwing down a crazy jam that melds into the first set. Or they could let Jeff,Joe, and Jk show us what their playin around with when the old guys are sleeping!

Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers or Bela Fleck/Flecktones. Show there show the other night replacing Greg Allman as the headliner in Windsor, CT. Dare I say it was more fun and better than music shows of Furthur. Seeing them jam together the other night after full sets from each showed me ecstatic joy of seeing two bands of top-notch/world class musicians just have fun together.

I've never gotten into Jackie's solo stuff as much but I think he should should join the Mother Hips and ride that monster all through this land!

^^^Now that's what I like, an unambiguous opinion in the morning! And one I agree with. ; )
