Notes

From the road: After a break at home, we returned to the tour last weekend in San Francisco for the Outside Lands festival. Though the show went well, the cold weather started to mess with Dave's voice. The dryness of the following day in Fresno only worsened matters, leading to the doctor's orders for Dave to lay off the vocal chords for some time. Subsequently, we had to cancel the show in Salt Lake....and for the second year running at that. We all feel pretty bad about it and look forward to making it up to the fans there. So we made the drive up to the Gorge for what turned out to be a really great weekend of music. Banjo virtuoso and good friend, Danny Barnes, joined the band for a few tunes each night...and nailed it. The band performed two of Danny's songs which were recorded for his soon-to-be-released album titled Pizza Box. Dave described Danny as "one of the most beautiful sounds I've heard in a long time." It was very much our pleasure to share the stage with the guys in G. Love & Special Sauce and Yonder Mountain String Band. They've become good friends of ours over the years. Tonight marked our 34th show here at the Gorge. Feels like home. We're sad to leave, but psyched for the Greek Theater this week. See you there.
