ProfJibboo If you were looking for the band to come out and play a high octane dance fest where your feet don't stop moving as together they recreated the magic of the late 80's as if they music never stopped... - you were in for a disappointment no matter what.

But, if you came in expecting a heart felt tribute to a musical icon that paved the way for our favorite band....you got that and more. Inspired by the Dead's tradition of constantly reinventing how they played their songs, the Fare thee Well crew followed in that spirit - allowing Trey to take those same songs in unique directions, with his distinct sound, and his distinct guitar and his distinct presence. It wasn't just a Dead cover band, It wasn't Phishy dead....it was Trey given the chance to embrace that I love as if they were own...resulting in a outstanding Viola Lee Blues and St. Stephen - not surprising the highlights of the show were the songs that allowed Trey's hands to shine.

The show was all I hoped it to be. Not a musical masterpiece, but a fitting tribute to the songs I've loved, the band that created them, and the beauty of what the Grateful Dead represented - different for each person but magical in each our own ways.
