Review By Painted Mandolin (Treblemaker) on Monday, August 06, 2012 - 12:03 am from www.philzone.org/

The Mars Hotel show got progressively better as it went today but for me it had serious, inexcusable and embarrasing timing fuck ups by "Stewball" the Bobby dude on Big River and Cumberland.

Robin Sylvester played bass and was frikkin' killin' it. Sam Johnson took a lot of great B3 and BLues Harp breaks and things were laid down with power and skill.

When Stu Allen played Here Comes Sunshine: the clouds parted more and more and on the last chorus it was a beautiful blue sky afternoon.

The Scene was packed and jamming with heads.

Midway through the set (and somewhat sucking the life out of the energy) Stu returned with Pat Nevins on acoustic guitar and Sandy Rothman on Dobro to do a Jerry style Goodnight Irene.
Cool shit - but it makes me wonder why they couldn't find a decent upright bass player to give it some impact.

Sandy switched to Mandolin for I'm Troubled and Deep Elem and then the band returned with renewed vigor to complete the set and were on fire throughout.

The Attics was surprisingly well sung. The Lovelight was very well delivered, complete with a Pigpen wrap delivered by the drummer: "Quit playin' pocket pool." At the very last note he spoke added the great quip, "And leave it on!"

The Deal had that HUGE, overdriven killer Garcia shred factor complete with Stu Allen heavily Fanning chords....

The Melvin Seals and the JGB with Dave Hebert was strong throughout and included cool blues, reggae, motown, jazz, Dylan, a huge blowout Don't Let Go, some Melvin delivered Gospel and a blowout ending. Hebert started tamely but during the Reconstruction instrumental and then all the way to the last note he massively increased the gain in his tone and wailed throughout. Dave Ellis took a few sax solos but he wasn't loud enough in the mix to have impact.

Finders Keepers
Johhny You're Too Bad
What a Wonderful World It Would be
Neighbor Neighbor
Jazz instrumental (Reconstruction?)
That's What Love Will Make You Do
Forever Young
I'm a Roadrunner Baby
Train Train
Don't Let Go >
My Sisters and Brothers
I'll be with Thee
Everybody Needs Somebody

This was the 10th one and I've been at them all. Today it was incredibly sunny, fun and a killer day to be an SFer!

Long Live the spirit, music and memory of Jerry Garcia!

Huge thanks to Tom Murphy the musicians, sound crew and my fellow Heads....
Thank You Jerry

What a beutiful day it was. Same people in the same seating year after year. You really get to know the folks here and meet new ones of course. The vibe there was just positive as it can get. Mars Hotel plays really good. I just get kinda buggen by the guy who plays rythem. Ive seen him a few times now and he just trys to hard to look like bobby and it bugs me. JGB are always great. I just got another dose of how awsome this community is and how i much I love the deadheads.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die
