Phish New York City, MSG 12-29-11

This was an unreal show. I am so back on the Phish train. Met my buddy Jim in NYC and we kicked it old school. We also had some great jams back at the hotel room. I was lucky enough to see my other good friends before and after the show, so overall it was […]

Grateful Dead Terrapin Station 4-27-77

I have some posts cued up but of course I’m Lost in Transactions right now, so I’ll throw a video up – Terrapin Station from the Capitol Theater 4-27-77. This Spring Tour was the best few months The Grateful Dead ever played. “The story teller makes no choice. Soon you will not hear his voice. […]

Allman Brothers Band – Blue Sky

Haven’t posted in a while so I found a good video to keep these posts current! Dickey Betts and Warren Haynes playing Blue Sky in 1991. Saw them a lot these years in college. Notice Warren playing a fender strat with lace sensor pickups (like I play along with another guy named Eric Clapton). Now […]

Phish: Sample In A Jar

It’s been a little while since I posted. Been so busy opening our DC jewelry buying office that I can’t find the time to write – but there’s nothing worse than a blog with no recent posts, right? So I want to share a quick vid that I watch often for your enjoyment. Be back […]

Black Friday, Steely Dan

I woke up with this song in my head. I found a version where Walter Becker did NOT take the guitar solo. (sorry Walter). Check out this ripping guitar solo by Jon Herington. Notice the drummer, Baltimore native and Samuelson’s Diamonds customer, (I sold him a bracelet once) Dennis Chambers. He’s one of the world’s […]

Phish Boardwalk Hall 10-30-10

Went to see Phish at Boardwalk Hall for their Halloween run. If you’ll remember, I saw Phish a year and a half ago at Merriweather Post and the show was not great so I was down on the band. Check it out in my post, Summer Concert Review. Well this past summer was a killer […]

Thank You Jerry Garcia

Phish Merriweather Post Tomorrow Night

Another year has gone by since I’ve seen Phish. I have to say that the show last year at Merriweather was disappointing, but I’m giving them another try hoping they break out some old school stuff. I reviewed the show in this post, “Summer Concert Review”. Here’s the kinda thing I’m looking for: Wish me […]
