    # w/ “Bad Ass” Dominick Placco on trumpet (bus driver)
    ========================
    It has been noted that this show was “w/ DJ Rodriguez” — Billy announces him at the end of the show, when also mentioning Dominick having played trumpet mid-set, but NOT at the end of Set I so most likely the DJ plays in Set II, if at all. HOWEVER, after re-listening I do NOT hear a DJ present *during* the show. I think perhaps he just spun before/inbetween sets and that’s what Billy is thanking him for — Billy does call him a “special guest” who is on the road with Karl Denson though, so this would seem to indicate he played during the show. If somebody at the show can verify whether DJ Rodriguez actually sat in with the band, that would be great, but based on listening I don’t hear him.

– SHACK THOUGHTS –
When a show opens with We Are Rolling, well, that’s just a sign of good energy, my friends — that’ll take you places! I love a mid-set The Dropper (I would love to catch that tune — one of my favourites, but I’ve never caught it live), and the move from Shacklyn > Partido is real sweet … Macha opening set II is a fun groove to get things going, and having Hermeto’s in there is a nice treat for sure, with “Bad Ass” Dom on trumpetToy Dancing is another tune I can always here — so fun …

enjoy the grooves,
dug
