DWD_Free If you were there, you know....

As much as Lawn Boy gets the biggest headlines, it was in fact, Sample in a Jar that created the most goosebumps.

We all saw "Jam Filled" as the forecast donut, and the anticipation was palpable. How would they play it out???

As Sample started, it seemed to be business as usual. UNTIL....

"The simple smiles and good time seem all wroooonnnnnng"......then the JAM FILLED part kicked in...in one of the least Jammed most straightforward songs of all...Sample in a Jar...which, on this night had a break in the action where the usual payoff would be. But wait, what is this???? Could it be? It is! It's a soaring, rising, climbing instrumental start to a very phishy jam indeed. We knew it was going to be a wild ride from this pont forward. This was it for me though. The AHA! moment when the jam started in Sample. The dastardly grin on Trey's face as he executed his plan grew with every note, as the crowd caught on to what was happening. The energy that formed in the first minute of that jam still brings me chills (I'm talking Hampton '88 chills for you Deadheads reading this).

Just glad I checked Ticketmaster after the announcement of Jam Filled and snagged some tickets.

If you haven't paid attention to the Sample...let it in.

It's special :)

Oh, and then they played Lawn Boy for half an hour.
