As always, it's grate to see a show at Ziggy's.

Not realizing there was an opening act, Kakalaki Kid and I met there WAY too early. The opening band's name should have been "Cliche" - they were every non-descript bar band you have ever seen, complete with chick with cowbell (one of the band members' gf's, obviously). Even the set list was totally predictable - "Keep Your Hands To Yourself", "Stormy Monday", "Born To Be Wild", etc. Kakalaki and I gritted our teeth and endured until they started "Black Velvet", and beat a hasty retreat to the lounge. It was grate to hang and catch up with KK, one of the kindest bro's around!

Don't have time for a detailed review - suffice to say that the Last Waltz guys have serious chops. They are obviously huge fans of the Band, and you can tell this is a true labor of love for them. I was disappointed in the turn-out...less than a 100 at the start of the show, by second set less than 25. The band didn't seem to mind, several times thanked us "faithful", and generally had a great time. This was the last night of an 8 show swing, and the band was pounding some serious brews!

Here is the set-list (from memory, but pretty close):

I: Up On Cripple Creek
The Shape I'm In
Time To Kill
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
Further On Up The Road
Stage Fright
Rainy Day Women #12 and #35
You Ain't Gonna Nowhere (A unique arrangement I really liked)
Don't Do It

II: The Weight
Like A Rolling Stone
Promised Land
King Harvest (Has Surely Come) - My personal highlight
Caledonia Mission

E: It Makes No Difference (dedicated to Danko and Manuel)

If you ever get a chance to see these guys, do yourself a favor and GO!
