At The Warner In D.C. Wth Tedeschi/Trucks

February 28th, 2016 Jorma Leave a comment Go to comments

So Wednesday the 25th Myron and I drove to D.C. where I had the privilege of not only opening the show for Susan and Derek, but also getting to sit in with them. On the way to the Capitol City, we stopped in Winchester, Virginia to get some gas. It was more than a gas station… Throx Brew Market & Grille. Awesome sandwiches. A worthy stop.

In D.C. we were booked into the Mansion On O Street… an experience in and of itself.

Honey, I'm home!

Honey, I'm home!

This place has to be experienced to be believed.

Ceilings... we're painting ceilings...

There’s no way a couple of pictures can do justice to this great place!

We were in time for a yummy dinner so we went to Al Tiramisu on P Street.

Great dinner!

    Was there Jorma and it was just great all around……sorry to hear of the loss of your local friend in Pomeroy…for my money Death Don’t is always a fitting tribute. Loved the banter you interjected between songs as well. Derek and Susan are the next great thing for my money. Love that big full band sound and when them there horns come in to knock you back well I just dont know…..Nice to hear the shout out to DC and your alma mater, which is where my local DC buddy’s son will be going next year!! Last time I was in town for a Jefferson Starship show out in VA we did a late night drive by Jack’s old house….I wonder if the people living there only knew or know…sigh…be well my friend…see you in Annapolis in June!!!!!

    I came to your blog this morning, Jorma, looking for some inspiration…and there were my two guitar role models, Jorma and Derek, smiling and on stage together in the link. Just what I needed. Good to see photos of all these great venues and shows. I am listening to the show now. Keep on keeping on.

    After listening to that complete TTB show you linked to, I went to utube and asked for “i pity the fool” with Jorma, so I could watch it. I had thought seeing J. and D. together was all I needed, and then when I realized that lead at the end of ‘i pity you’ was Susans’, and watched her perform it…I was balling like a baby…still am sniff, sniff, moved beyond measure. Glad I checked your blog this morning or i’da missed the whole thing. I am so happy for you to have such a great weekend.

    Great photos, Jorma. I’ve been to all of those places and enjoyed it so much!

    Thanks for the link Jorma. TTB are the absolute best “big band” out there right now. I love the look on Dereks face whenever he plays with one of his guitar heroes such as yourself. I had a chance to ask Susan once about Derek with Johnny Winter at Crossroads a while back. She said it was the thrill of his life, couldn’t stop grinning for days. Check out the clip out there in cyberspace, you’ll see for yourself.

    I meant to include the fact that Derek & Susan and their whole touring group of family and friends are the absolute nicest most down to earth group of people you could ever meet.

    I saw that clip with Derek and Johnny Winter doing Rte 66 at Crossroads. Amazing. Derek was backing Johnny up and grinning from ear to ear. Similarily, in this link at the end of the song, Derek stayed back and let Jorma and Susans’ guitars talk back and forth. Jorma got Susan perfectly primed, and then, when she got the nod, a thing of beauty followed. She nailed it….with a little help from her friends. I wonder if they planned that.

    I think that selfie with Jorma and Derek should go on the wall in the workshop room below the library – next to the photo of Jorma, Warren, and Derek. In that photo Derek was a tall lanky youth of ??teen. Both of these photos are now etched into the wall of my minds eye.

    duh? I didn’t mean rte 66, but highway 61 revisited.

    Jorma: just want to thank you. I saw you in DC opening for Derek and Susan, your playing and setlist has got me re-discovering my love of the original blues players. Not sure why but I have gravitated away the last few years into more modern players. Been listening to Son House, Reverend Gary Davis and Lightnin’ Hopkins for the last few days and I’ve fallen in love all over again.
    Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for reminding me what I was missing.
