Here here! The show was the most unique in years with three generations and the band. I've enjoyed Abe in the past few years but he really comes to life when he's rocking!

It was also great meeting the people I've known for awhile. See you in Hawaii! ( Arlo is planning a White Christmas holiday special from sunny Hawaii. And we're invited)

BTW, I made it home okay. Lights started flashing all over the dashboard but the car didn't come to a complete stop.

That's great Diane, is the special going to be televised? Is it a private show? My friend is in Hawaii and it would be great if she could go. Thanks!

I think it was a bit of wishful thinking. Anything for an excuse to spend a week or month or two in Hawaii. Anyway it was the first time I ever heard White Christmas on the ukelele.

Deb kept a whole set list. I don't think she's home yet, though. But she'll post it as soon as she can.
Just have to agree it was a great show. It was something else to see that familiar stage all filled up with performers and instrument. Johnny and Krishna joined the crowd that had done the church shows and they surely did make some beautiful sounds together.
Some of the highpoints for me were..Watchtower on the uke, but with the full band backing this time, it was really, really good besides being a different approach to that song.
Prologue, again. Not going to get tired of hearing that any time soon, after waiting so many years for it to get back into the show.
All Over the World as one of the encore songs. I don't think I've ever heard that live before and certainly not with the whole band playing on it.
And of course, getting together with so many friends, and just having a good time was wonderful and too quick as always.
Can't wait for Carnegie!!

Pretty much what everyone else has said. It was a great concert. I don't think I've heard a better version of Prologue. I just can't say how impressed I am with these last few shows. It's great hearing some of these songs (like All Over the World) that haven't been played in ages with Xavier backing up Arlo. It adds so much to the show. I mean, I loved Shenandoah, but there really seems to be magic with Xavier opening the shows and backing Arlo up! All I can say is that I hope it's not a short lived deal and they're still with him after the holidays. Oh, and Johnny, same thing... we wanna see him up on stage more as well!

And it really was a treat seeing Krishna up on stage, that was really neat! Even managed to get a Krishna autograph... won't be long before I'll be setting up his web site! I mean, pat had been joking with me about when I was gonna start his web site. I had no idea we'd see him up there so soon. I'm gonna have to quit my job or something to keep track of all these sites...

Everything about the show was wonderful. Seeing the gang outside of the theatre was a treat, and hanging out with Laura Lee was very interesting.

The show was great. Xavier made a powerful intro (I felt like we were watching Garth Brooks or something). When Arlo came out it was so subtle that I felt there was a delayed reacion in the audience. Or maybe I have to get my glasses prescription updated.

In any event, after a false start due to a broken watchamajiggy with his harmonica, the show was fabulous. Arlo did give us his opinon on the election (great!), and went on to have a fabulous show.

One of our personal highlights was meeting Johnny outside the theatre before the show. We had chatted with him briefly at the church, and he is just a heck of decent & nice guy, and a GREAT PLAYER. We were very excited later on when he played on Coming into Los Angeles. His dobro fills really enhanced the song to how it sounded in the original cut. Arlo, please give this dude a regular gig, at least when we're coming to see you (we'll call first, thanks).

The song selection was just what the doctor ordered. Most of our favorites got played, and it's so nice to see the versatility of the uke songs. I LOVE Ukelele Lady and Fence Post Blues. My ultimate dream would be an onstage performance of Washington County. Dare I ever hope?

With the Xavier guys and Johnny on stage, the sound was FAT. It rocked. It RULED! Stories were great, some of the usuals and some new stuff (I guess it was new. It was new to me.)

After the show we got to chat with Arlo, and Jody took a pic of Arlo and me with my sister Debbie. Debbie cracked me up when she asked Arlo if he would like her autograph (he said "sure!"). Debbie is a bit pregnant right nowImage, so we have converted Deb, her hub Don, and Baby X to Blunderite-ism!

Wonderful wonderful...see you at Carnegie, I think. I better step on it: only the nosebleed seats are left.
