  1. Long list. My list is longer than I sometimes remember. I don't see Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, The Steve Morse Band or Cornell Dupree (with Blue Lou Marini on sax). You were there, weren't you?

    1. Sounds vaguely familiar Steve. I’m pretty sure I was there for Cornell Dupree/Lou Marini and maybe Bela Fleck, but I don’t remember Steve Morse Band. I’d love to see Steve Morse, but I just don’t remember it. If you’re right, help me remember so I can add them to the list.

  2. I'm sure there are quite a few more that should be on my list but these are the ones I can remember. I also debated about who to include?? There are some minor celebs that didn't make the list and also some opening acts that I couldn't remember, etc.

  3. Steve Morse and Bela Fleck were at the Caravan. Cornell Dupree was outdoor at Sundance Square. And Contact was at Main and Exchange. The keyboard player borrowed your Ibanez Roadstar. Thanks 😀
