Virginia Governor “Didn’t Know” He Was Posing Next To Willie Nelson’s Weed

first_imgIn one of those “Are you kidding me?” type moments, we look at the recent picture of Willie Nelson and Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe that features a container of “Willie’s Reserve” in the middle of the two adults. The picture, posted by Willie’s wife, Annie, with the caption “UH OH Trouble!” went viral after the pro-pot singer and governor sat down for a brief meeting. @PaulBegala @GovernorVA UH-OH Trouble! pic.twitter.com/PRdTFiiM1w— ??6630507 (@BioAnnie1) September 17, 2016Nelson was in town for Farm Aid 2016, another successful affair which featured performances from Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, and more to ‘bring awareness about the loss of family farms and to keep farm families on their land’. The governor was in town and naturally wanted to meet the living legend. The two sat down for a bit on Nelson’s tour bus, where the picture was taken. After the picture was posted, the comments from social media followers came flowing through the floodgates.Brian Coy, a spokesperson for McAuliffe stated, “He was not and still is not aware of whatever was on the table or anywhere around him and wouldn’t know marijuana or related paraphernalia if it walked up and shook his hand….He’s cool, but he’s not that cool.”As is typical with politics, a statement had to be made to clear the air and save face. However, in Gov. McAuliffe’s defense, he has expressed his support for medical marijuana over the years, and recently signed into legislation SB 701, a bill that is essentially acting as a first-step for patients suffering from epilepsy to have access to cannabidiol oils (or CBD’s). The bill requires a second passage in 2017, but unfortunately would still prohibit those with multiple sclerosis and PTSD’s from gaining access as well. So, there is still a long way to go in Virginia, which is historically a tough state on drug offenses. It is a start though!Whether or not McAuliffe was truly unaware that the Godfather of Pot would have the good greenery on his tour bus remains a mystery. Whatever the truth, this picture rocks.[via Richmond Times-Dispatch]last_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Delivers A Masterful Set Of Improvisation With Joshua Redman In Portland [Review]

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee pushed on with their northeast run last night, stopping at the famed State Theater in Portland, Maine for a wild night of live music. The band continues to miss guitar player Jake Cinninger as a result of a “wicked flu” and doctor’s orders to rest up at home, however, they certainly made up for his absence with a high-octane performance that was filled with highlights. Modern jazz saxophone master Joshua Redman joined them for almost the entirety of the show, and jam starlets Spafford provided an the awesome opening set that set the tone for the evening. After a second set composed entirely of improvisation and a raucous response from the amped up audience, it’s clear that Umphrey’s McGee continues to be one of the best live bands in the game.Spafford crushed their opening set. After hitting the East Coast this week for a pair of headlining shows, they reconnected with Umphrey’s for another weekend as their supporting act. They turned in a fun performance in New Haven on Thursday night, but last night’s set at the State Theatre really saw them hit their stride with another forty-five minute, four-song performance. The band performed “In The Eyes Of Thieves”, “Galisteo’s Way”, “People”, and “Ain’t That Wrong”, and they were totally on fire throughout. Guitarist Brian Moss was locked in and showed off his impressive skills throughout the set, linking up with the rest of the band for several exciting moments and tight transitions.Umphrey’s McGee took the stage at 9:15 PM, and they immediately launched into one of their most beloved songs, “2×2”. This multi-sectional classic was only played two shows ago–Sunday night at Penn’s Peak–as the band continued to rotate their catalog unconventionally to accommodate for Cinninger’s absence. “2×2” would mark the first of three songs throughout the evening that debuted before Cinninger joined the band. The song itself was stretched to around seventeen minutes long and showcased everything that’s great about Umphrey’s McGee: tight composition, ambitious improvisation, and a true dedication to their craft. Brendan Bayliss was a revelation on guitar, shining brightly during his traditional triumphant solo at the song’s end.After the opening number, Bayliss quickly introduced Redman, who would remain on stage with the band for the remainder of the opening frame. They started up “Bad Friday,” and the crowd responded with a huge wave of excited energy to the song’s thumping beat and funky vibes. Redman wasted no time in making his presence known, harmonizing with Bayliss on the song’s verses and adding an awesome solo that quickly established his intentions for the night. The self-titled track from Umphrey’s 2004 album Anchor Drops came next, a fan-favorite that is always welcome on any night. The jazzy-vibes were the perfect launchpad for Redman’s style and provided another opportunity for him to shine.The band kept it moving with a rare cover of “When the World Is Running Down You Make the Best of What’s Still Around” by The Police. This was the highlight of the first set, as the band built up to a huge peak in the middle of the song, then, after finishing the final chorus, wound their way into “Professor Wormbog” with a slick and out-there transition. Redman continued his dominance, relishing in his featured role with inspired playing that whipped the crowd into a frenzy. The second pre-Jake song of the evening, the heartfelt “Hajimemishite,” provided a breather after the raging cover that came before it. Then, keyboardist Joel Cummins paid homage to Cinninger by taking over lead vocals in his absence on “Mail Package.” Cummins did admirably on the song, and he stepped up in general without Jake there for the evening. The crowd roared in approval as the band completed the song, and they walked off stage to prepare for their pending full set of improvisation.After a standard set break, Umphrey’s McGee returned the stage for their highly anticipated set of improv. To the excitement of everyone in the room, Redman joined them from the outset. Drummer Kris Meyers kicked things off with a funky beat, and the band quickly latched on and dropped into their first idea of the set. Bayliss would lead them into a more sinister rock section, and they weaved in and out of the ideas for a bit before keeping it funky. Redman and Bayliss would then link up for an awesome dual solo, chasing each other musically for a few minutes while building the tension masterfully. Eventually, they dropped back into the previously-played rock section, before once again falling back into the funk and staying there for a good amount of time.At around the thirteen-minute mark, Cummins took the lead with a rhythmic keyboard part that the band used to influence their next direction. Meyers and percussionist Andy Farag kept increasing the tempo, and Redman and Bayliss continued to push each other with lots of tension-and-release playing. Meyers then cut the tempo tremendously, which created tons of space for Redman to fill. Ryan Stasik is often the dark horse for MVP during these improv sets, seamlessly flowing through so many genres of music without missing a beat. It was more of the same from Stasik last night, providing a rock-solid foundation for the band to build on.Redman would walk off stage with a few minutes to spare, giving the band an opportunity to create some fresh music together, and Bayliss used this as an opportunity do try out some new lyrics with a lyrical “Jimmy Stewart” segment that brought the improvisational second set to an end. The entire second set was filled with moments of pure improvisation. It would be impossible to describe every nook and cranny of the sixty-five-minute journey, so make sure to check out full audio from the show (also embedded below) to fully experience this masterful set of music. The band wove in so many different genres of music throughout the set, adding elements of metal, progressive rock, jazz, funk, and more to the excellent improvisational effort.For the encore, Umphrey’s would leave Redman behind to perform two songs on their own. They started off with their third and final pre-Cinninger song of the evening, the fun rock tune”Much Obliged”. The old-favorite was met with a huge cheer, giving long time fans one more chance to sing along after an excellent evening of music. Then, the band moved into a spot-on cover of “Ophelia” by The Band to close the evening. The song was last performed at The Major Rager in Augusta, GA back in 2016, a gap of seventy-six shows, and it was only their seventh-ever performance of the classic song.Umphrey’s McGee threw down an incredible performance in Portland last night, and thanks to taper opsopcopolis, you can listen to full, high-quality audio from the show below.

Tedeschi Trucks Band Celebrates Love On Valentine’s Day In New Jersey [Full Audio]

first_imgPhoto: Bob Schultz Photo: Bob Schultz Tedeschi Trucks Band returned to the stage at the esteemed Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey for their final show of their two-night run. Many of the audience members were celebrating Valentine’s Day, and romance was in the air, even before the band took their positions on stage. With Amy Helm opening the show, Tedeschi Trucks Band played a hearty collection of music throughout one extended set.The band—dressed in all black—blew the dust off the track “Don’t Let Me Slide” from their debut album Revelator to commence the evening’s music. The band already performed this song three times in the first two months of the year, marking a drastic increase considering the song made it into one performance. Next, Susan Tedeschi began singing the inspirational lyrics to “Laugh About It” with Derek Trucks, the horns, and backup singers expertly supplementing her powerful vocals.The band continued with “Just As Strange”, another track from their latest album Let Me Get By. The song featured a swampy rolling drumline, Derek’s renowned slide guitar, and Susan’s choir-like vocals. With the back-up vocals harmonizing with Susan, the band’s distinguished sound transformed the elegant theater into a sacred church. Keeping the world-class performance at a sentimental pace, “All the World” followed—a relatively new track that hasn’t found a place on an album yet with a sweet and soulful tone like so many Tedeschi Trucks Band tunes.The band abandoned their gospel sound momentarily and returned to the swamps with a dirty little number, “Right On Time”, also from their last studio album. Mike Mattison’s gravelly voice commanded lead vocals while Susan Tedeschi accompanied him with back-up vocals. Elizabeth Lea blasted her trombone in sporadic bursts to give the other musicians room to weave their notes around her steady rhythms. The setlist continued to rely heavily on their most recent studio album with the original tune “Don’t Know What It Means” coming next. This track featured a lively Susan Tedeschi delivering heartfelt lyrics and husband Derek Trucks absolutely destroying his guitar accompaniments. As per usual with this group of brilliant musicians, the three other singers nailed the back-up vocals, and the overall timing remained continually on-point.As the band foreshadowed in recent tours, the newly written “Shame” continued to be displayed, as the performers experimented and redeveloped its song structure in the pursuit musical perfection. The original tune was introduced on June 8th at the Merriam Theatre in Philadelphia and has been in a state of constant evolution ever since, and during this rendition, Derek Trucks whipped a flawless solo around the unusually heavy bass line provided by Tim Lefebvre. This song has unlimited potential, heavy jams, poignant lyrics with a smooth delivery, and has already proven itself to be a staple of the Tedeschi Trucks band’s repertoire.The band then began a barrage of covers beginning with a debut of Cowboy’s “All My Friends” for a poignant tribute to Scott Boyer who passed away two days ago. Cowboy hailed from Jacksonville, Florida, and recorded for Capricorn records in Muscle Shoals with the recommendation from Duane Allman to his friend, the legendary Phil Walden. Duane Allman also plays on Cowboy’s well-known track “Please Be With Me”, which is featured on Duane’s Anthology.To follow, the band dove into a badass rendition of the old blues standard “Leaving Trunk”, with Mike Mattison singing lead vocals. This song is accredited to Sleepy John Estes but was popularized by Taj Mahal. Tash Neal, the guitarist from The London Souls and who also opened the show in Amy Helm’s band, joined the already-crowded stage to contribute his guitar talents. Derek and Tash traded guitar licks that built into the rockin’, explosive focal point of the show.A soulful cover of Elmore James’s“The Sky is Crying” began with a heavily influenced blues solo by Derek Trucks before giving way to Susan’s emotional singing and a stand-out blues guitar solo that could easily be mistaken for one of B.B. King’s.Next, the band revisited a much sought-after cover of Neil Young’s song, “Alabama”, which was recently released as a new single. The cover featured a cutting guitar segment with Susan acing the southern-styled lyrics, and the song marked one of the most formidable three minutes of music of the night. This rendition was also the seventh time that the band has covered this song since its debut in November of last year.Returning to their partial roots as the Derek Trucks Band, Mike Mattison returned to center stage to sing lead on the beginning of Billy Taylor’s song “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free”, which featured a mesmerizing one-two punch between Derek Trucks off-the-cuff slide guitar and Susan who retook vocals after the first verse. The song broke down into a furious flurry of horns and percussion, with Ephraim Owens slaying his instrument of choice, the trumpet. Mike Mattison also traded vocal duties with Alecia Chakour, as the song rebuilt for one last incredible solo by Derek Trucks.To close the lengthy solitary set, the band executed a high-quality twenty-minute version of “I Want More”, another track off their latest studio album Let Me Get By. The closer utilized a stompin’ bass drum, horn punctuations, and Susan singin’ to the heavens, as Derek Trucks patiently waited for his opportunity to shred the unholy hell out of his trusted Gibson SG. The rest of his massive band quietly subsided to give him more acoustic space, but soon jumped back in line to resurrect the melodies of the song. Eventually, Kofi emerged from behind his keyboards to perform one last stunning flute solo before relinquishing control to Derek who continues his acoustic onslaught. The drummers were the next at-bat, and made the most of the opportunity, with both Tyler Greenwell and J. J. Johnson thrashing and thumping their kits in synchronous rhythms. Derek got the last word, however, with a final continuation of his guitar prowess.A stripped-down ensemble reappeared onstage to play a sentimental version of the traditional song “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?”, with Derek Trucks ripping a cutting solo right from the start. Susan sings the lyrics in her pristine voice with backup vocals provided by Marc Rivers, Mike Mattison, Alecia Chakour, and Amy Helm. The band then finished with an extended rendition of “Bound for Glory”, another track from Revelator to complete their two-night residence in a truly inspiring fashion.Kofi crushed a keyboard solo and worked hand-in-hand with the horn section to get the audience dancing. The groove was supplemented further by Derek Trucks overpowering guitar riffs and Susan’s unbeatable vocals. As Derek Trucks captivated the audience with one last guitar solo, Susan finalized the night with the declaration that “We’re bound for glory.”Setlist: Tedeschi Trucks Band | Count Basie Theatre | Red Bank, NJ | 2/14/17Don’t Let Me Slide, Laugh About It, Just As Strange, All the World, Right On Time, Don’t Know What It Means, Shame, All My Friends (Gregg Allman), Leaving Trunk (Sleepy John Estes), The Sky Is Crying (Elmore James), Alabama (Neil Young), I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free (Billy Taylor), I Want MoreE: Bound For Glory[Audio: edtyre]Tedeschi Trucks Band | Count Basie Theatre | Red Bank, NJ | 2/14/17 | Photos by Bob Schultz Photo: Bob Schultz Load remaining imageslast_img read more
