Was not a fan of the show, Rog is so depressing and fake, but Joey Waronker is a killer player. Really enjoy his sound and groove. He can play those Floyd tunes so well, and has a real dead sound which fits and is massive. Highlight of the show.

Saw Marc Laflamme with The Musical Box, he nails those crazy Phil parts in the Lamb and pulls off vocals.

I That sounds odd to me, I often wish Warren would tone it down a bit and wail a little less
Greg Morrow, with Joe Bonamassa.
Totally played for the music. Every stroke in its place perfectly. I only wish I had that kind of self control.
He’s with Bonamassa now ?
I saw him in the early 80s with DeGarmo & Key ….

To be honest, I can’t think of any shows I’ve seen all year but I went to see Smokey Robinson last night and it was great. Smokey is 82 and moved around the stage like he was much much younger. His voice is still in tact too. The drummer had a big set of DW’s and was solid. Nicely tuned drums and kept it simple.

I'll see Brian Blade next month at Monterey Jazz. The drum solos of two nights of Dead & Co. thus far......

Micheal Quinn. He is the drummer for Dermot Kennedy.

Holy crap, Micheal killed it. His energy and playing really drove the band for the entire performance. Loved it!

I'm a roadie for a local jazz festival so I see a lot of shows. This year I got to see some great drummers including Kendrick Scott, Makaya McCravin and Nate Smith.

Conrad Real at the Hilton concerts at NAMM. Usually plays for Digable Planets but was playing with a funk/R&B band from Seattle that had the crowd bouncing the whole time. Wish I had gotten their name.
