For what it's worth, I was lucky enough to be at the show in St Louis this past October (along with forum friend Fabarmadillo!) and absolutely loved it. This was maybe the 14th show I've been to since 2009, and it was a different experience but mainly in the way that every show is unique. The band felt really tight to me, and they stirred up a powerful spirit. There was one jammy moment that stood out where I noticed each of the four members had their eyes closed, as they were feeling their way to the next round of solos. It was a magical night, and I can't wait for the next show!
Of course I'll always love and miss Marty, Mike, and Erik, and I'm so grateful to have seen them over the years. I hope to hear more from them down the road (and I still spin "Skookum Sound" quite a bit in the meantime).
