It was a great show. Nice venue, good sound and the usual great Steely Dan show. Walter seemed a little pre-occupied with his wall -o-amps, he may have had as many as 10 - 12 amps. Nuts! Scott (is it Scott?) Harrington was very good as always and seems to do all of the tricky guitar work. Still using his Guyatrons.

Yes, no question about it; Herrington is a very, very capable player and a real asset to the group. I thought the drummer was outstanding, and the band as a whole was well-rehearsed; I wasn't surprised when I looked on the internet the next day and saw a listing of the personnel - as elite a group as we have come to expect from Steely Dan. The only disappointment for me was the quality of the PA. The venue here is an older one that I've played in, albeit probably built for acoustic performance and not the prevalence of everybody in the PA. In particular, the bass was boomy, needed more compression, and I was surprised that this continued throughout the show. The next week I asked a sax player who I play with what he thought, and the first thing he said was that the PA was boomy, so maybe my ears weren't fooling me that night.
Still, as I told my wife, "it would have been a bargain at three times the price."
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
