What a show! My friend Rob and I got there early for a change. We were able to tailgate for a while too, which is always fun. I had a great time. We actually saw the last couple of songs from the opening band, State Radio.
I was very curious as to what they would play without their keyboardist Butch Taylor, but instead with guitarist, Tim Reynolds. “Dreaming Tree” was a great opener and beautifully done. “Gravedigger,” “Grey Street,” and “The Maker” were done to perfection. A wonderful version of “So Damn Lucky” put a major smile on my face and really got me dancing. It was one of my favorites of the night! “One Sweet World,” “Jimi Thing” and “Crash into Me” were superbly done as well, pleasing all fans.
A wonderful surprise was the cover of Pink Floyd’s “Money.” I was stunned! “#41” also truly sounded great and the song “Everyday” had everybody dancing and jumping around. “Corn Bread” was fast and furious with Tim Reynolds on guitar, where he also rocked out on the ending of “Louisiana Bayou” and a superb rendition of “You Might Die Trying.”
The encore was one of the best I’ve ever witnessed. A cover of Neil Young’s “Hey Hey My My” was so unexpected and amazing! It was immediately followed with “Tripping Billies” and it was just a great way to end this night for this early trip into the summer tour in Camden, New Jersey!
