We thoroughly enjoyed the show. We have been listening to his new album and when he played the songs, from that album, it was awesome. People sometimes only want the "standards" but we loved every single song and every jam. End of the tour and the energy was fun. Hoping for another tour next year.

DMB WAS AMAZING FIDDLERS NOT SO MUCH
DMB never disappoints, but unfortunately the speakers sounded terrible. I just can't image these are band speaker issues. It was the whole stadium. I heard them play in Ohio earlier this summer and they sounded amazing. Night 2 sounded better in Denver, than night 1, but I think that's bc we were closer. The Lawn speakers at Fiddlers are not good.

Third time seeing DMB and I was not disappointed! Row LL had an amazing view, and Dave played the best songs, with tons of energy!

Overall, Dave played an energetic and youthful performance along with the rest of the band. I had so much fun and do hope to see them again in 2019!

I have had the opportunity to see DMB multiple times. It’s wonderful to be able to see a band multiple times and have each show be so different. They played an energetic show with a mix of new and old material. The Cortez cover was an absolute treat. Seeing the band with Buddy Strong on the keys was different. He adds a fresh jazz vibe. Supper talented musician. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to see them again.

I've seen DMB a >dozen times at DeerCreek (now Ruoff) and must sadly admit, the band acted like they got into a huge argument before walking on stage. None of Dave's typical stories, not much inter-play between band members, the horn section just stood around talking between themselves when not playing, and Boyd Tinsley was def missed!!! Perhaps it was bc we had Pit Tickets and they oversold / over packed the pit to the point pushing and shoving kept occurring during the show, including a near fight right in front of us. The Pit was waaaay too large. We were 12-15 rows deep and historically, I've sat much closer than that for a lot less money. Ruoff is to blame for that, not DMB. But the sound and stage and behavior of the band was overall very flat. Def my most disappointing experience at DMB in over 10 years. I typically walk out of his shows so pumped I've followed them to other states on their tour. Not this year. We all have off nights....perhaps this was one?
