The show is tonight.

The last time at the Blue Note, it was the smallest "crowd" I've ever seen JJ play to. It has been a few years; Orange Blossoms tour. I had a blast, anyway.

I sure expect a bigger crowd this time.
And some rarities...
You hear me, JJ?

Is anyone here going to be there?

Sunny, sorry to sour that Joe,  but won't have access to a computer - heading back straight to DM airport for a blues fest.  I'll get setlist info to MF1,  but an expertexter I'm not!  Worst case, I'll pay you back double on Tuesday.

Actually I deleted the other thread. (Sorry Sunny, I deleted yours and my comments. Feel free to say again!)

Here's the setlist and what Craven Moore had to say

"Thanks for coming, Columbia.  Welcome to the SEC."  And with that, Gator Boy leads his band through the following 2 hr show:

6 Ways
A Woman
Air
Beautiful World
Country Ghetto
Dirtfloor
Lazy Fo
Jawja Wawhawse
Sweetest Thing
Hide & Seek
Slow Hot Sweaty
EGIB
Orange Blossoms
Ho Cake
Lochloosa

Encore:
(Brighter Days listed, but scratched)
Harp & Drums

The "crowd" (maaaaaybe half full with +/- 225 there), had a great time.  Younger crowd.  Many more students than all the Germany shows combined.

For me, this one was painfully loud.  For the first Mofro show ever, I left my usual perch in front of Todd & the horns and sought refuge in the balcony.  While less painful, it was still thundering mud.  Could have been the lack of bodies to absorb the sound.  Could have been the accoustics of the building.  Could have been just me, but I've had plenty of experience.  JJ didn't seem to be of full voice, but everyone was having fun.  Especially during H&D.  So was it among the top 25 Mofro shows I've ever seen?  Not by a long shot.  Was it still fun?  Sure! (he says as he grabs for the Advil again).

That's what I got.

Well it's Friday and back to the real world. Had an absolute blast in Columbia. Jim, who introduced the band is a friend of ours. He knows all the guys in the band. We got to hang out with the guys for a few hours after the show! Talk about fun. Porobably a once in a lifetime oppurtunity. I have some pictures of us with JJ and have to upload them. I can post them to facebook later today.
