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.

    Jtran – it was always hard to tell exactly how many people were on tour

    as much as you’d see all the same faces every night, you’d see an old friend at the tour closer that had been on the whole tour and you hadn’t seen him yet

    i’m leaning towards Joe being right when he says 93-96, because to me it felt like in 94 they were small – but that small group of fans was ON tour

    97-98 you def had more kids doing chunks of tours and seeing 10 -20 shows than ever before

    spinning some Basement Tapes vinyl loud as shit

    such a timeless album

  7. tela'smuff Says:

    @Hal – sure thing. i can for sure bounce and meet up.

    as for tour, i know in ’94 it was a real small crew. i didn’t do any touring myslef, but had some peeps that did and for sure was a select crew.

    ’95-’96 was my era and it seemed i knew most of the midwest folks touring. so it was still tight enough to know who was hitting a liot of shows.

    after that, i could care less and kept to myself and my small crew. but no question by 2000 there were A LOT of peopel touring and it was gettin ugly. my recollection of ’94 was it was a bunch of music nerds like zzyzx on tour, which suited me much better.

    spinning a little Oysterhead. Very hit or miss for me as a band. Some really cool stuff and some stuff that is pretty terrible. I wish Claypool just played bass and never opened his mouth. Copeland is great.

    Hey all.

    Two posts down or so, under the header, “Detroit Rock City” is a JOTD from 11.4.98 II Piper>2001>Chalkdust.

    Take a moment to relive the Piper at least…bonkers.

  10. butter Says:

    Claypool’s vocals I always considered comical.
    Love that guy.

  13. EL Duderino Says:

    the further sbds are on the ‘nerd fwiw

  14. EL Duderino Says:

    I turned Leo and g711 on to the AV fluff over here 2 weeks ago…

    Ask them…

  15. butter Says:

    maybe Miner’s book will have the answers to our questions 😉

  16. voopa Says:

    Thanks sumo, don’t have that source yet.

    I never really toured, but my heyday was 97-99

    97 Ventura>Shoreline>Gorge
    98 Portland>Gorge>Shoreline>Ventura>Phoenix
    99 Gorge>Shoreline, Nassau>Albany

  17. EL Duderino Says:

    That’s “the” source Sumo

    4 seeders too

  18. butterflyeffect Says:

    agree with Neemz

    Sailing the Seas of Cheese = awesome

    don’t know if it was mentioned in the talk of ’09 the other day, but in case it slipped through the cracks, 12.3.09 Disease is money in the bank

  19. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Hi neemor,

    want a ticket for PNC #2. lawn boy?

  20. neemor Says:

    I can’t wait for Miner’s book.
    Can’t wait to see what the format is and expect there to be enough info in it to become another secondary source of band info to be a companion to The Companion.
    Not happening fast enogh.

  21. butter Says:

    re: tour

    basically it kept getting bigger and bigger and peaked at Big Cypress

  22. EL Duderino Says:

    One of my biggest regrets was not going back to Ventura in ’98

  23. neemor Says:

    I do, Palmer.
    Like you read my mind.

  24. EL Duderino Says:

    I want to know if Miner’s book will be in electronic format?

  25. garretc Says:

    Haha, so I’m listening to Ornette Coleman’s “Free Jazz” for my jazz history paper, but I’m listening through the class website, not itunes, so I keep glancing up at my itunes and seeing “Sneakin’ Sally Through The Alley” and being really confused that it doesn’t match what’s in my ear.

    “This doesn’t sound like any Sally I’ve ever heard!” I say to myself before remembering that I’m in fact hearing the Ornette Coleman Double Quartet…
