Can we all take a moment to reflect on what happened this past Saturday?  Greensky (with Fruition) at Red Rocks in the freezing rain.  We stood out there for seven hours (some in my group for NINE).  Whoa were we rewarded.

I'm struggling with the words to describe exactly what happened, but it was special.  Really special.  Seamless.  Dark and light.  Just beautiful.  Was everyone else completely blown away?  These guys arrived for me a long time ago, but something tells me they're on the edge of another level of greatness.

I got skunked on Greensky Red Rocks tickets, but I have to confess when I saw the weather I could not feel too bad to have missed it. I went to hear Elephant Revival up there May 21, and while the music and the spirit were sublime, they were the third band, and as the night went on the wind blew harder and the rain came harder and colder. It was a great time for sure, but I prefer Red Rocks in mid-summer.

As to Greensky, I've seen them a number of times and yes whatever the heck IT is, they've got it and lay it out. My favorite performance was a couple years ago they played a late night show at DelFest with the Steep Canyon Rangers opening. Taking the stage at 2 am after a long day, they completely went wild until 4 am, one of my best musical experiences.

When GSBG announced their Red Rocks date, after my elation, i definitely got worried about the weather! It was cold and the rain only let up for Fruition's (amazing) set. But it felt like it almost added to the night in some strange way. Everyone was there because they really, really wanted to be. Kinda enhanced the sense of community. But yes, mid-July next year, please!  LOL

Hey Skubes!  Wave

It was great seeing you and Nick at this amazing show! I had been driving over 9 hours through the rain to get there just after the gates opened!

In a weird way I think the cold rain DID add something! And the boys seemed to feed off our energy standing and dancing in it!! They really seemed to enjoy themselves and definitely brought the juice! 
:burn

The Delfest show Steve speaks of sounds amazing also, but this show for me was a highlight for sure!  Thumbs Up

Hells yeah-

It was so good, Paul it was great seeing you before hand.  Skubes sorry we didnt chat longer, had to hit the restroom IMMEDIATELY. 

But yeah what a show, they definitely matched the energy in the crowd.  We had to bring it to stay warm.  The cool mist made Lincoln's lights even more magical. 

AWESOME! 

The Lil Smokies tonight! Yeah boyeee

Hahaha, yeah, I get that, Nate!  When nature calls in the freezing rain, it's best you answer swiftly.   LOL  You and Sam doing the Ogden run?

Great times with you, too, Paul.  What a treat for us all.   Cheers

Yeah we are doing the Ogden run, kind of funny because we are going to Chicago for NYE.  6 GSBG shows in 2 weeks.  Should be good times. 

You guys hitting all those Ogden shows?

Pho sho, uh-huh!  We were fortunate enough to get 3-days in the lottery.  Guessing this may actually be the final run at the Ogden? 

And HECK YES!  NYE will be awesome.  Congrats, btw.   Wink

last time i was at that venue it rained&hailed hard, right after sharon jones
i was worried tedeschi trucks would not get to play

guy serving beer told me it happens all the time
they just wait it out. then wipe off the stage, and then start to play again!
