A mere fortnight after Trey played two nights at the same Denver theatre, Mike’s band hit the Ogden with impressive guests in tow. Joining Gordon’s band onstage were New Orleans legends Ivan and Ian Neville, former 70 Volt Parade bassist, Tony Hall, and drummer, Raymond Weber—current members of the New Orleans’ outfit, Dumsptafunk. Together, the ensemble played three songs to close out the first set, including Prince’s “Alphabet Street,” and then two more for the encore, including “Things That Make You Go Hmm….” In addition, Mike’s band packed in plenty of jamming on its own in a show that looks to be one of the most interesting of tour. Check out some audio clips below, or download the show with one of three links above.

    I don’t really think the jam evolved in the Hood Duke. As soon as they drop into the cool little ambient piece we know and love…..BAM – Stacatto funk licks.
    It was like a brick to the head.

  2. Selector J Says:

    haha @bhizzle A little late at that. Any normal band comes out and says “hey folks! Good to be back in the US of A. Here’s a few that we’ve only played in Europe…. uh 1… uh 1… uh 1, 2, 3, 4” ->Ghost

    Trza and Co. says “let’s just see what happens if we don’t say anything.. ha ha ha.”

    He wrote that?

    I’ve now chosen sides

    Fuck grant hill

  4. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Just to clarify, I was talking about it sometimes being contrived as to when certain songs blow up, not that they are actually practicing the jams.

    Stupid argument I suppose.

    Phish is real, real good at music.

    Hey @willowed – what was it like playing Wicket? Did you dig on Carrie Fisher?

    9/28/99 Wolman’s opener


  8. tela'smuff Says:

    wow. i think that VA ’97 summer opener is maybe the best summer opening show, period. although Chicago gave it a run last year.

    wow. this Shoreline YEM gets straight nasty.

  9. butter Says:

    was thinking of all the dope 1st sets ya’ll listed on the last page

    the time is now

  10. DukeOfLizards Says:


    I don’t know. As has been pointed out here a bunch of times, the staccato licks have been in Trey’s arsenal since the beginning of time. Difference is, now the band is REALLY latching onto them – in particular, Page on the clav. If you listen, Mike keeps trying to pull the jam back to more typical Hood territory, then eventually gives in and jumps on the tasty calypso train.

  11. willowed Says:

    Little people (The wicket) had a thing for Val Kilmer.

  12. kenny powers Says:


    i also remastered that VA show

    sick Theme and Gin

  13. [Not Tom] Says:

    Playing 7.21.97 now.

    They clearly were pumped about Ghost, to open the U.S. tour with it.

  14. willowed Says:

    True duke.

    But the way Page mirrored the licks was very very new. It was like they heard something in practice and said……yup, that works

  15. [Not Tom] Says:

    ^ Unfortunately not playing the KP remaster.

  16. [Not Tom] Says:

    Quick – name a jam better than Nassau Roses

  17. Selector J Says:

    I was just a punk noob kid and haven’t really revisited it since so take it fwiw. Raleigh was much more exciting of a show to me.

    ” was thinking of all the dope 1st sets ya’ll listed on the last page

    Hellz yeah! Why sometimes i can’t understand why peeps are always finding something to bitch about re: band. I guess its the nature of the biz.

  19. willowed Says:

    Hey..Let me make it clear….i am cool with it. I am not there in the practice session so i get off on it whether practiced or organic.

    But that stacatto train did not form organically at all. It was locked and loaded and waiting to rear it’s funky face.

  20. willowed Says:

    and I dug it….big time

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Not tom- Stash 7/2/97

  22. [Not Tom] Says:

    @ Palmer – awesome! Never heard it. Will add to the DL list.

  23. Robear Says:

    we’re bitching about the lack of west half playing.

    in a round about way.

  24. DukeOfLizards Says:


    We’re basically saying the exact same thing, I guess my point is that the staccato jams of December 2010 are no more contrived than any other style of jamming from Phistory.

    @[Not Tom]

    Nassau Weekapaug.

  25. Mr. Palmer Says:

    RCMH Ghost perhaps as well @ NTM
