A stirring rendition of the National Anthem by Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, and Vince Welnick at Candlestick Park on April 12, 1993. Even in the later years, they could still belt it out. ALSO: A never-before-noticed UFO flyby occurs at 2:11 in this video. Note the object's unusual green hue. (Perhaps certain aliens just wouldn't miss this rendition for the world--literally...!)

The set mainly featured songs off the band's most recent album Sunday Morning (featuring John Popper from Blues Traveler and Nigel Hall of Lettuce). Starting off with the bluesy tune “Holy Water” that included a dissonant guitar solo which had McClean trading licks back and forth with Mars. The song set a tone for the night of classic 1-4-5 blues progressions with humble and at times self effacing lyrics. A highlight of the night was Reggie Pittman, Jaimo's trumpet player sitting in on a cover of Otis Redding's Mr Pitiful. Jamie McClean left The Dirty Dozen Brass Band to pursue his own sound and he certainly proved it at the Gramercy
Jaimoe is celebrating the release of his new CD "Renaissance Man," he was introduced onstage as “the original Allman Brother,” with these sort of connections he has put together a stellar group of musicians featuring Jaimoe on drums, blues hall of famer Junior Mack on vocals/guitar and Dave Stoltz (of PBR) on bass. “Rainy Night in Georgia,” featured Junior Mack's deep baritone voice, “Leaving Trunk” showcased the bands blues chops, Junior Mack broke out his best slide work playing signature Duane Allman licks on his cherry red Gibson SG.
For “Dilemma” the band stepped aside to give Jaimo the spotlight for a 5 minute drum solo. The band then stepped back onstage with the rumbling of the bass leading back into the song. The band closed the set with The Allman Brothers’ “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” with a “Jessica” tease toward the end. They closed the set with Albert Collins’ “Black Cat Bone.”

So tomorrow your New York City Council will vote on whether or not to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that declares corporations are not people and money is not speech.
Because of your past support, I know you agree with me that we have to get money out of politics. I'm hoping you will join me in asking your city council member to support this resolution.
You can identify your member and find contact information here. Please contact them today and ask them to support Resolution 1172. This is important.
Three weeks ago the Los Angeles City Council passed a similar measure. That vote was a huge bang heard across the country. Now, if the largest city in America passes almost the exact same resolution, it will be a crucial step forward in the fight against money in politics.
It will give a turbo boost to the cause if the two biggest cities in America representing more than 12 million people stand in support of getting money out in less than a month.
Let's take the fight to Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, Little Rock, Des Moines and many other cities and towns across this country. Each victory leads to the ultimate victory in Washington, D.C.
But first we have to win tomorrow. Please contact your member and tell them to support Resolution 1172.
