Scored some last minute, half price tix to Bobby Weir and the Wolf Pack at the Cap Wednesday evening.

Bobby was good, not forgetting lyrics and singing with good timing. His guitar playing was also good.

And with Jeff Chimenti on keys (so good he is) a pedal steel player, a cello, fiddle, trombone, trumpet and a sax. They made good use of the horn and strings. Fiddle player was an outstanding soloist but they didn't turn him loose until near the end of the show.

Kind of sleepy, I came close to nodding off once or twice. Really good Dark Star and a really good Sugar Magnolia/ Sunshine Daydream for the show ending number.

Light show sucked... One of those where they were constantly flashing lights directly into audiences eyes and not lighting players other than Bobby hardly at all.

Too many solos by Bobby, who is not a great lead player. Especially when he is surrounded by such great players who can play circles around him.

Anyway, overall they sounded great and were better than I was expecting.

Love Jeff on the keys.
The wolf pack is definitely a new way to interpret the dead songs.
Hope to get to a show of theirs.

caught bobby and wolf bros for free over the summer at the willie nelson thing at forest hills. fine for an hour for free. def not a band i'd want to pay top dollar for. the exception is the symphonic shows he did at the kennedy center. those were really beautiful.

you new hampshire folks should really go see joe russo's new jazz quartet the selcouth quartet. they are coming to you on feb 24. https://jimmysoncongress.com/event/joe-russo-selcouth-quartet/

i am quite bummed that their nyc show is the thursday of my long family ski weekend. very nice house rented near manchester.

these guys slayed at their first show ever over the summer in bkny
