Our Ann Arbor debut was an auspicious one! After setting up, Matt Cole, Richard Rickman and Colin Murphy played an awesome set of Jerry Garcia Band tunes on acoustic instruments. Richard was a boss on the string bass and vocals, and Colin (only 23!) played a mean fiddle and sung up a storm all night. At 10, the acoustic band bid us goodnight and we prepared for Raising The Dead.
Raising the Dead took the stage with a jam that melted into Althea. First set highlights included Bill leading us through Tom Thumb's Blues, and Joe nailing Next Time You See Me. The second set was a Dave vocal heavy set, he sang Stranger, Prophet, The Other One, and Samson with aplomb. The drums segment highlighted our percussionists, Joe and Chaim, as they played off each other (and on each other's kits). The night ended at 1:30 with a satisfied crowd and happily tired band.
