Everybody's still traveling, so it probably won't appear here too very fast. I'l just say that things went on a VERY long time; that this was the first of the three Basement Shows I've attended where virtually everybody got up to dance (at Sam's great encouragement); and that Mart and Dave and Jeff (and Devin and Adam) make one amazing five-guitar attack band.

Sorry for the delay in getting this up here...


Jeff played on everything, so I'm pretty much only noting when he was joined by others. In the later stages of the show, on songs that he didn't write, others shared in the vocal duties, so that was kind of tough to note. I tried my best. :blush


Anyway, without further ado, here were the songs (in order, of course) played last night at the Hotel S 'n' S:


-Blasting Fonda

-If That's Alright

-"The Happy Song"

-Walk Where He Walked

-In a Future Age

While I'm posting setlists, let me just add that we once again had the pleasure of hearing some of the fabulous musical exploits of our friends Dave Mirabella and Martin Rivas. Aside from their contributions to Jeff's performance as noted above, they also each played a set for us and I would feel remiss without listing those setlists as well...


Dave Mirabella's opening set was, he said, mostly new, original material, so I'm pretty much taking everything off of the setlist he used:

-Far Away

-Real Life

-Before You Go


-Sky Falls

-Burned Again

-Ruby-Colored Halo


-No Guarantees


And Mr. Martin Rivas brought the solo Sunday Morning Campfire to the Hotel S 'n' S (clearly we know where Mart hopes to be in early August when a certain reunion tour hits MSG):

-What You Won't Do For Love [bobby Caldwell]

-What Becomes of the Brokenhearted [Jimmy Ruffin]

-Tempted [squeeze]

-Don't Stand So Close To Me [The Police]>Money For Nothing [Dire Straits] interlude

-Move On Up [Curtis Mayfield]>Freddy's Dead [Curtis Mayfield] outro

-A New Word

-Let's Stay Together [Al Green]

-I Thank You [sam & Dave]

-Tush [ZZ Top] (fragment)

-Superstition [stevie Wonder]

-Driven To Tears [The Police]

-Walking On The Moon [The Police]

-Sunken Treasure [Wilco]

---------bye to Canadian Judy and family break----------


-I'll Be Around [The Spinners]

-Funkytown [Lipps, Inc.] (fragment-"You Get The Gist")

-So Lonely [The Police]

-Be My Girl - Sally [The Police] (poem fragment)
