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: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
