"We're going to do something different for this one," Max said.
You see, our keyboard player Max writes our setlists, and for Halloween, he decided we'd turn our audience's expectations on their heads. For the 'heads in the crowd, it was a whole lot of fun. The usual song pairings (like China>Rider or Sailor>Saint) were moved around and mixed up like colors on an unsolved Rubic's Cube. Add in several song debuts and the evening became a trick-turned-treat of Grateful music.
We'll let the setlist speak for itself:
October 31, 2019, The Watermark Bar & Grill, St. Clair Shores, MI
I: Cryptical Envelopment>Wharf Rat>Cryptical Envelopment>Loser, Lost Sailor>I Know You Rider>Saint of Circumstance
II: Picasso Moon*, Werewolves of London*>Samson and Delilah*, Weather Report Prelude, China Cat Sunflower>Eyes of the World>Playin' in the Band (reprise)
III: The Music Never Stopped*, Black Throated Wind>The Other One>Playin' in the Band>Franklin's Tower>Help on the Way>Slipknot!>Sugar Magnolia> Fire on the Mountain>Sunshine Daydream>Scarlet Begonias, Let It Grow, One More Saturday Night
*First time played
We were joined by the always awesome Brent Nagy on drums. We return to the Watermark on December 7.
