The Deadpod

Feb 14, 2014

For this Valentine's Day edition of the Deadpod i chose this set from February of 1986 - true 86 is not on my list of 'great' years, but this is a very fun show, one where the Neville Brothers opened and came out to guest with the band in set 2. The first set sets  the tone for a high-spirited, fun evening I think.. the band opens with a rare China->Rider, which, while perhaps a little rushed, is still great fun and gets the crowd amped up. The first set tunes that follow are for the most part fun to hear and played with alot of spirit, even if Jerry has some trouble on Dupree's .. its more than made up for by a great Bird Song and a very fine Music Never Stopped.. The boys close the set with a rockin' Might as Well which again, keeps the crowd in the Mardi Gras-style mood for the set break...
