due to some line up changes )
The band consists of 2 guitar players, bass, drums, two keyboard players, two sax players ( one of the keys players doubles on sax )
3 of the above players sing back up as well - We're super excited to play tonight!!

How’d it go?
It went really well! I was just hoping for a bigger crowd - even though the event was outside in South Florida, it was down in the 50's that night. I made a couple mistakes, starting the wrong song, getting lost in the set list a couple of times. They were songs the whole band started but I recovered quickly - I'll pay better attention at this weekends gig!

Nice set list, but I didn't see Katmandu??
Katmandu and Travelin Man into Beautiful Loser had to take a back seat due to some lineup changes since there wasn't enough time to learn but they will be added and performed soon enough

Pete, I was born in Detroit in 1955 and was RAISED on Seger. My sister, 5 years older than me, saw Seger in a small club when he was ready to quit the business because he wasn't getting famous yet. Had to be around 1968 or so. Your set list is impressive. Of course you have to cover all the years. I'll ask, though, did you ever consider the song "2+2=?". I used to hear this all the time on the radio, along with "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man", in Detroit as a teenager. And I was fortunate enough to see the last tour. The drummer was a friend of a friend and SOMEHOW, I ended up with an autographed Seger drum head. Bob does NOT easily autograph things.

What a great gig and setlist!

I saw Bob Seger in 2015 in San Jose on the Ride Out tour - just absolutely a killer show!!! My wife really had no clue who he was......
the drummer was Don Brewer from Grand Funk - and he crushed it!

I’ve never heard that song before but I’ll mention it to the guys
Gotcha. Been there. Sounds like a fun band!
it is! We have drums, bass, two guitars and two keyboard players, one that doubles on Sax plus another Sax player and three of the members sing background harmonies - 9 people all together
