Whereas the Rialto was modern in every respect, the Wilma is old school.

    I was in Montana fishing for HFT(trout), missed you guys by a week. If your schedule ever allows it give yourselves some R&R on the river. It’s good for the soul!

    The Bromberg sets in Negril w/HT and Little Feat were memorable as well.
    HT in a Conestoga wagon -could be a great poster

    Spacious skies, amber waves of grain, purple mountains majesty – you guys ran the gamut across our land, leaving the trademark Tuna contrail in your wake. Put a smile on my face as I watched you passin’ thru. Hope they’s a whole lot more onward to be revealed as time continues its march.

    That set in Bozeman was a killer. Opening the show with Serpent Of Dreams is unbelievable. So glad you’re having fun.

    Hmmm Serpant to open.
    Anyone know the last time an electric Genesis, with full drums, was performed? Anybody have a Tuna base like the Dead base?

    @John B
    Hey John, Tuna opened with Serpent for their 25th anniversary show at the Irving Plaza in December 1994. Good stuff. Remember it well!

    The Bozeman show was killer. Jack had several solos.
    At the Wilma, Jorma mentioned he and Bromberg were buddies for many years and they knew and were influenced by rev. Gary Davis, but went in different directions musically. I love them both. We as fans prosper from this. The blues are the roots and the rest is the fruits. I,m from Jersey and the shows were great, and we spent time in Yellowstone Park afterwards. Great road trip. Thanks Jorma, Jack, Justin and David and his band!! Town Hall is next!! Love the Rev. too!! Peace
