"GREAT show last night. Besides the stellar musicianship (Amy Farris - hokey smokes!) of the band, and the wonderful songs, Dave's stage presence was low key and self-effacing ("After 30 years of performing, for the first time I'm the best looking man in the band!") and downright funny (he kept riffing on the Regatta part of Regattabar)."
