Some early attendee reviews:
“So glad to be reminded that there are still talented, worthwhile artists making real music and performing great shows in a decade of crap! Simply one of the best live performances I have seen!” – Stephen Simon
“A rewind button, please, to replay and relive this night everyday. I’m so amazed.” – Barbara Navarro (no relation to Dave!)
“OMG, that was so amazing! I have to say that the sound mixing was absolutely perfect for me. It was loud enough, but not killing, and the acoustics just worked so well in your bookstore. Maybe something about the cookbooks on the walls. ; )” – Jacqui Viale
