Eighteenth Night With CAMI

February 21st, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last night at the Jefferson Center was grand on many levels. In addition the the great concert hall, there was the Music Lab… an unbelievable educational facility for kids. We’re going to try to do some work with these folks! Really good works… and then there was the food backstage. All in all, a total experience.

    Looks like another fine time was had by all last night!!!

    The Newport News show I attended Friday night was FANtastic Jorma. Jim L, Charlie M, and the core Tuna Team….Bliss from start to finish

    AND the return of GE…. I haven’t seen GE since I took his Fur Peace workshop in November 2007, and it was great to again see him and to see him in action…Reminded me of those most useful words of advice GE gave me at the workshop about improving my “lead guitar” abilities, which was…. “Just F—ing DIG IN!!” True Words To Live By

    You guys were all diggin’ in deep, and just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, we got Water Song for an encore….Perfect!! (Especially considering the venue location)

    Soooooooooooo Looking forward to HOT TUNA BLUES Round 2 for me tomorrow night in the Bull City (and 220 LESS miles to drive to see you :-} )

    Here’s another vote for the Durham show, and an early request for “Water Song”.

    Oh, and having Charlie play on “New Song (for the Morning)” would be awesome, too 😉

    Welcome back to Durham, and we hope you enjoy your stay. If you want a diversion, check out the Bull City Blues historical marker, which is about 1.5 miles SE of the venue:


    Safe travels…

    Great seeing you guys in Roanoke!!! I’m from the NJ shore, I moved to Roanoke recently, I would of been at count Basie, in Red Bank, but i ended up in Jefferson Center in Roanoke!! It was a smoking show!! Every little note, every little bend.. sounded so good.. the crowd was in such aww that you could hear a pin drop on that stage.. It was such a differant setting than i am used to , as of the lively crowd, but in away it was good, cause i got to sit back for once and really listen with open ears and have your music take me away to that place!!.. Thanks so much.. And please if you can become a influence in the Jefferson Center!! We need seasoned and talented people to influence the kind people of the Roanoke area.

    Peace and love,
    Siobhan Cline
