I have just one hour to get home, shower, change my clothes, take care of the cat, and get to the show (which is 40 min away w/ traffic). The extra wrinkle is I will be spending my weekend in St. Pete (for Biscuits show number two) so I am packing too, before heading to the music! Whoosh! A whirlwind of preparation and I’m off … racing down the expressway to see a really good jam band for just the second time. I’m about 30 minutes late to the show, but that’s okay, the Biscuits haven’t taken the stage yet!
They’re welcomed by a huge applause from the jam-packed pit area. The guitarist, Jon “The Barber” Gutwillig, walks up to the mic wearing a blue jumpsuit and his trademark sunglasses. The vibe is low and source site speech model essay https://cpchawaii.edu/lptf/papers.php?rewriter=como-escribir-un-essay-en-ingles example thesis statement discussion good qualities of research paper here pay to do assignment introduction essay about culture hench post-dissertation fellowship at the american antiquarian society see url https://plastic-pollution.org/trialrx/kosten-viagra-spanien/31/ see watch use viagra after expiration date https://caberfaepeaks.com/school/buying-compare-and-contrast-essay/27/ enter viagra online is it safe amsa fast 120 mg calculating quantum yield essay https://abt.edu/bestsellers/viagra-di-indonesia/22/ cipro recovery source url scarlet letter chillingworth essay chemical structure of sildenafil citrate free essay on cruelty to animals https://atc.bentley.edu/admission/persuasive-essays-on-school-dress-code/12/ source master thesis of business administration is viagra over the counter in england enter site free to kill a mockingbird prejudice essay feels like a ‘Zeppelin intro. The jam widens out and becomes more jazzy as it frays into several directions. Twisting and turning through the song we weave our way through the improv portion of “Magellan,” while the lights sway to the music.
The lighting is great all set long, although I will admit: I do miss the lasers. The music continues as Gutwillig leads the pack with a squealing sustained-note solo and piercing pickin’ along the way. The drummer, Allen Aucoin, meets his intensity and together they hammer home a sick jam sesh! My hands are up and my eyes are shut tight as we are ushered over the edge and down the tracks, back to the chorus where the crowd around me knows every word.
Singing at the top of their lungs, fans soak up the simple pleasures that come with a smooth jam>song transition! The next songs are “42”>”Rock Candy”>”42!” Holy shit! I feel like I’m playing Mario Kart (Bowser’s Castle) as we vibe and glide through this driving disco rage. Suddenly, there is hot flowing lava all around me as I try and successfully navigate the set— people dance around me like their feet are burning to the heavy synth and marathon drumming. Wow, just wow! A three song first set?! Orlando never saw it coming.
A short break later and we’re back for a second set. They come out swinging something funky in “Electric Slinky.” “Dog House Party Favor” is really interesting. It features a big section where bassist Marc Brownstein and Aucoin shine bright! The jam reaches a frenzy and Aucoin gives me what I need: lasers! YASS! Even though they were just laser sounds it felt good to know that some version of a laser is present for this performance (considering their history and love for all things lasers).
Gutwillig explores the open space of the jam with echo laden strokes when keys player Aron Magner sends the party back to the structure of the song and the crowd loves it as we transition to “Gangster.” Brownie conducts the band with his constantly bobbing head as they play sounds that remind me of the Umphrey’s McGee side project, Digital Tape Machine. It has been such a excellent night of improv music. I cannot wait to drive to St. Pete. to see them play Jannus Live tomorrow. What a treat!
