Yes, this was my first night. I bought tix to this and Thurs last time I was there. It made things much easier. I got there at around 9:45 and the trio was on. I missed Zak Deputy, the opener, but I'm told he's good and I'll have to look out for him again.
By the time I got a drink and got up front the horns were onstage, which made a huge difference for me. Especially because Skerik was one of the horns. At first it was Skerik on tenor, one trumpet, baritone, and alto. They were up for a while and made a huge difference. Oteil came out at some point for a bit as well. Then the horns left and brought out a singer, Alan Stone from Seattle. That didn't do much for me, but I'm not into singers. He wasn't bad. I was happy when they brought the horns again, this time with a 2nd trumpet. I was surprised I enjoyed the Soulive with Special Guests set so much. It was a lot of fun.
