kingphish68 This was my first time at Deer Creek, and I have to say- it is a beautiful setting, and the weather last night was perfect!

Right out the gate- we get a blistering Carini in. to an awesome version of Wolfman's Brother. Always on of my favorites, and this one did not disappoint. Sand is always a great funky tune, and this one has some funk. As I listened and enjoyed the song, I found my mind often thinking of Tony, and how he would sit on a stool, all chill like, and just work his magic laying down a backbeat groove that just grabs ya! R.I.P. Tony! Lawn Boy, The Wedge and WOTC are other stand outs in the first set that come to mind this 'morning after review.

Set 2 is what this show will be remembered for. AC/DC Bag gets things going and was a great set opener. It had quite a number shows since the last time I caught one, and I really enjoyed it. Then come Blaze On. I did not expect this tune to turn to turn out to be the beast that it became last night, but WOW! Mind blown!! Wilson is always a fan favorite and kept the energy high going in to Simple. This Simple is just other-wordly. Not sure how else to describe it. There were times last night when I had to ask my buddy if this was still Simple? I was just lost in this jam. The show could have ended there and I would have been stoked, but no, we get Harry Hood. I knew it would come up this weekend, so glad to see it, and this is one doesn't disappoint.

To close out the night we get Sanity (been chasing that one for 17 years!) and it was fantastic! I was not expecting a Limb by Limb in an encore slot, but it was great (another favorite to see) followed by S.A.N.T.O.S to take us home Hi-Ho-Hi-Ho!

If last night is any indication of what is to come these next two nights, all I can say is 'buckle up' kids and hold on to your hat, this ride is about to blast off! Enjoy the Show!
