This band is so great, I still can't believe I almost skipped going at all. I liked my seat. It was on the floor on the very far right, V52, which is next to an aisle but not a door to the lobby. It was perfect for dancing and seeing. Later during the 2nd set I got myself quite a bit closer. I managed to be in a spot that whenever they cleared the aisle, it looked like I had a seat, so I got to stay. It's even better being so close.
We got Col. Bruce and Susan Tedeschi sit-ins.
I'm mainly in awe of Derek and Warren and having 3 drummers. Oteil again participated in the drum solo. He got much more interesting on the bass after that. Every once in a while, someone comments to me in conversation "why do they have 3 drummers?". My response is "because it's 3 times as great!". It really is. I go crazy when they are all 3 playing with sticks at the same time.
I need to remember this when hopefully they are back at The Beacon next year.
