Well! I'm sooooo tired today and it's your fault!

Third row, center at the Keswick last night - What a show! What a show!

Last year was a wonderful show, but THIS year? Absolutely amazing! And it seems you have your own fan club at the Keswick, Chris!

As good as The North Missippi All Stars' set was last year - this year was even better! The musical connection between you is palpable!

I've been a John Hiatt fan forever - I've seen him "solo" before, but I can't imagine him without you now. What a powerful combination!

Well! Keep posting, Chris! It's great to "meet" you!

old and tired, but still tapping my toes,
jane :)

Hey Chris! I wrote an email and sent it to you, but I think it was an official use only address, if so I'm sorry :). I didn't know you had a blog. Anyway, I too was at the Keswick last night, also third row, but right in front of you so I guess that would be third row right. It was my first time hearing the NMA and now I think I'm spoiled! I will always need to have at least third row tickets now when ever you all come to town! You guys were awesome! I was dancing in my seat! I wanted to jump up and dance, but I didn't want to block others view! Your music is very unique and you all play together wonderfully! I am a HUGE long time James Taylor fan and your music reminds me of some of his more blues songs, ie Steamroller. I love the bass and your bass playing was incredible! Your solos were phenomenal! Luther's guitar playing was unbelievable! Cody was awesome on the drums too! And you all were amazing with John! Well I could ramble on for hours but I don't want to bore you to tears, I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your music and time with me! I hope you all come and play the Keswick for years to come!! I'll be there!
Take care,

Big Chew,

It was hot in Kingston, both on the stage and in the crowd. Loved the pink NYY hat! Keep up all the great work.

Garth was great - he loved that solo on Slow Turning, didn't he? ;-)

Hope you keep the posting up - we love to hear the tales from the road.
