I didn't realize there were so many board members at this show, or I would have said "hi" to you all. Was the guitar problem during "New Car"? It was funny. I think he may have played the last note of the song. Some observations:

--Paul certainly adds to the mix vocally. I would characterize his stage presence as frenetic, when compared to the others.

--I would say that turnout for a show like this in Nashville was actually decent in light of how apathetic people are for a lot of shows.

--I have to say that I've never heard Terry sound this good. Not that he ever sounds bad, but he seemed a little reinvigorated. You could definitely tell he was happy that DA is playing again.

--I'm glad they have the twin lead attack of Jerry and Greg. That's probably my favorite lineup of the band.

Not to get too dramatic, but the show reminded me of the history of these guys and the treasure of what this band, and the other Dogs-related bands, have accomplished. Back catalogs of consistently good-to-great music over a period of decades. My only complaint (and it's small one) is that there wasn't much music product. There was, however, posters, shirts and towels(!).

Boy, I hope so. I hope at least one of the venues has decent A/V recording equipment, and something leaks out, or, even better, we get an official release.

Ditto on Terry's vocals. His vocals were strong, forceful in all the right ways, subtle in all the right ways.

They should record every show and then put together a best of... but that would require a lot of time and energy to set it all up. It would be cool though to hear each song performed at their best.

facebook shows over 40 so that is a good sign since it's still early for that show. Happy

The Wentzville show was GREAT, the setlist was basically the same. The turnout was pretty good for a gig in Wentzville, I am guessing maybe 100 people or so? Kevin Shafer even drove 800 miles or so to this show. There were a lot of old DA fans there.

Thats the downside of seeing them before they hit Wentzville... Big Grin they do have more with them now, including the new tour samplers.

A few changes for the Wentzville show... it was slightly shorter so a couple of songs were dropped unfortunately. I was looking forward to seeing "Posse in the Sky." Maybe they'll pull that one back out for Cstone...

Hm - I'm just not sure it's a real D.A. show without a rousing rendition of "I Didn't Build It For Me", naturally involving some wild shenanigans during the breakdown in the middle...

"Donna" is a good choice for the encore. I am sorry you missed "Posse" though. It was incredible.

Here's my thoughts on the last two nights:

I live in Southern Illinois (the Carbondale area) so it's a 3 1/2 drive to Smyrna and about a 2 hour drive to Wentzville. When the tour dates were announced, I was pretty sure I had to go to both. I mean, hey, they havent toured in 20 years and I havent seen them live in 11 years, so what the heck.

The Smyrna show was worth it just to see the one song with Tim. That one moment was such a geek out fan boy moment-- like if John, Paul, George and Ringo had ever been on the same stage together after 1970-- that the 7 hours of driving was so worth it.

The show itself-- well, it's always, always good to see the boys in any situation. And there were many fun, great moments. But overall, it was definitely not ideal.

I've heard from other touring musicians that Nashville is a tough place to play because everyone has a chip on their shoulder, being all musicians. I don't know if that was the case in this room-- and there were definitely plenty of enthusiastic fans-- but the audience was pretty dead. It was also about 15 feet from the band to the first row of seats. The environment just made it an awkward situation.

The band seemed nervous and a little unsure at times (hey, it was the first show) but little mess-ups like "New Car" seemed to loosen them up a bit.

If the show had been in a sweaty pole barn at Cornerstone or a bar, I think the guys would have been much, much better. But the crowd was really giving them nothing.

The sound wasnt too great either. For that kind of room, it should have been pristine. Greg was barely audible the entire show and you could only hear Jerry after he turned up mid-set.

But it was still fun. And still great to see them.

On the other hand, Wentzville was awesome. Fantastic show.

The guys were loose, happy, they played very well. Dropping the four songs from the night before really tightened up the set. The crowd was excited and into it. It was a nice, cozy room. I stood in the back the entire time and was still very close to the band and had a great view of everything. Greg was still a little low in the mix, but it was a small room. You couldnt blast everyone away.

Overall, the last two nights were an amazing experience. As I sat waiting for the Monday night show to start, I felt just like I did when I was 13-- standing on one of the lighting rigs in anticipation of seeing them for the first time at Cornerstone '90.

I wish I would have taken off an entire week of work and followed the band a few more days.

Thanks to everyone involved for making all this possible.

Didn't know I had any of my homeboys on this board - I lived in C'dale for 19 years, until moving to L.A. in 2003.

Do I know you, per chance? I was involved with Chi Alpha campus ministries that whole time - it was hard NOT to meet other Christians around there.

I was hoping to catch two shows, but the NJ show does not fit into my schedule unfortunately. So Camp Hill, PA it is. I anxiously await the day!

I doubt my wife would let me see two shows, but Pomona is on my short list should she give the ok.

Phoenix show Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

HEY BIG DORK!

I'll be a the Phoenix show (maybe Tucson too if it happens) and dragging along a buddy of mine,whio liked _MBD_.

Also trying to get the word out to others who might have lost touch with DA after the Maranatha days.

I am really pumped as my first and only DA show was C2K, though I've seen the Dogs a number of times.

I notice the church they are gigging at in Phx looks a bit conservative in pictures. I hope they aren't afraid to rock it up still.

I saw a photo on FB that looked like Greg is playing a Line 6 Variax last night. That'll get him all kinds of sounds for all the differnt DA eras.

Apart from Greg's high end being too low in the mix, I though the sound was quite good. I was actually surprised at how good the sound was, only having heard some less-than ideal Cornerstone bootlegs as far as DA live is concerned.

The first row was a bit distant from the stage, but I disagree with your assessment of the crowd's enthusiasm. We may just disagree on what makes for a good crowd response; I give you that a Cornerstone gig would have had a different energy, but I think there's a place for sitting and soaking in the music. I though the response after each song was good.

I do wish I could see a later show on the tour...it's bound to get better and better along the way.

Yeah, there was a night and day difference in Monday and Tuesday night. But, hey, it was the first show in ten years. Understandable! Smile

I doubt it. I was only at SIU for awhile and was not involved in any of the campus groups.

I'm 34, so I would have been at SIU from 95-97 and 98-99.

So he is! I hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it. Being a VAX owner myself, I'd call that a ringing endorsement...
