Gathering of the Vibes

Friday, August 12, 2005
Indian Lookout Country Club
Mariaville, NY


Absolutely hands down one of the better shows I have seen of any band all summer long. Dark Star > West LA Fadeaway was truly jawdropping. The rainstorm was intoxicating; every crash of lightning brought with it a roar from the crowd that the band was picking up on! I have not boogied that hard at a show in a while..... My legs are feeling it now! Woohoo!

The Vibes was incredible! The show was the most weather- and crowd-inspired I have seen since the GD played the rain show in Pittsburgh. The energy coming from Mother Nature fueled Bobby and the crowd. The louder the thunder and the closer the lightning got, the harder we danced and the harder they rocked! They had every opportunity to stop and run for cover but did not! At one point someone came out and tapped Bobby on the shoulder and gave him the break sign; he shook his head and said nah!!!!! I will leave the set-list and such to others but I will say this.... Donna sang her heart out all weekend long, and she definitely fed off of us and the outpouring of love she received. Thanks to all for making this one of the best....

What a weekend. Not only did we get an evening with Ratdog, but three days of incredible music. It was brain overload and and at one point I was speechless and thankful to be along for this cosmic ride. I decided to go VIP for the convenience factor and it lived up to the hype. My only disappointment was the small confined veiwing area that veed up to the right hand stage so you couldn't get a clear view of the artists. The speakers were in the way and by the time you figured that out, it was too late to get up on the rail unless you wanted to be pushy. The rain that came with thunder and lightning was welcoming and the boys only played harder. They were on fire. Thank you again for a real good time.
