Espresso Garden Show
- Hi Everyone,
Since the last show the owners have done a few upgrades: new sound
board, new tables and more comfortable chairs. Why do I mention this? I
hate being distracted by getting a sore butt during the show - not this
Sorry if I'm repeating things but I haven't been following this group
for a while.
Tracy looked much more at ease with life for this show than last time. I
still think it takes great courage to get up there and play Dave's music
given the events of the last 18 months.
Tracy's voice was as good as I can remember - rich, warm, moving. For
much of the show I was mesmerised. The evening was extra special for
Tracy as her father and brother had come down for the show.
It appears lugging around a double bass did not cut it as Donny's moved
to an electric.
I was really pleased that Tracy has added When I Go to the show. This is
probably my favorite D&T song. Tracy has added her own interpretation of
the main vocal which I really enjoyed. On the instrumental side I really
love Tracy's violin (fiddle?) work on Raven - puts a fire in your belly.
Story telling has always been an important part of D&T shows and Tracy
doesn't let us down. Apart from being great entertainment we get new
insight into D&Ts past. I think this is part of makes us feel so close
to D&T - they have opened their hearts and souls to us all.
I look forward to a new album coming out...sometime next year I assume.

at Sister's it looked like a 1/4 size bass. Indeed I overheard
someone after the show asking Donny if it was a cello. It's not.
But it did look kinda odd sitting 2 feet off the floor on that
long foot peg.
Chris - patiently waiting for November 15th - just hurry up and get here!
