    Nice setlists so far! Roads & roads!! Trial By Fire!! I’ll be 5th or 6th row center in both Raleigh and Charlotte. Any chance we’ll get a “Day To Day Out the Window Blues” and/or “Keep Your Lamps” and/or “Serpent of Dreams” there? Really though, whatever you choose to play is just fine by me!!

    It must be a gas for you guys on this tour.
    What great musicians!
    I know you must be playing to some who might not know the magic of Hot Tuna.
    What a treat for them!
    Rock them hard Jorma, Jack, and Justin!

    Thanks for the great show. Had the chance to see you guys again with my life long friend, John (once upon a time – Fillmore East, Academy of Music). See you next month at the Dakota. Thanks again.
