Its been an honor & a pleasure sharing the last 6 shows with all of you: Bowl Staff, the raging & attentive audiences (during Brokedown & Bid You Good Night, it was the quietest BB has ever been on a Saturday night - I'm really proud of you all!) and everyone scoring at home (even if you're not) on couch tour.

Bullet Point Takeaways:
-Love The Bowl!
-Love the crowd - so many moments where literally everyone in the building (& hopefully all of you on your couches) was/were completely immersed in blissful happiness. That happiness spreads like wildfire & we need it during times like these.
-The Band - So playful! So psyched!
-We all get to do it ONE MORE TIME tomorrow...
Sounds like a good idea to me. Thanks all!

gregg allman residency, jan. 2016

Pamella and I went to the Gregg Allman residency in Macon, Jan. 12 - 13, and 15 - 16.

P was at every show except Friday.

We airbnb'd it.  A gay couple own the second floor, windowless apt we stayed in.  In a historic building on Cherry and Third.

They also own an accessories storefront at street level.

The weather was perfect for January: sunny, short-sleeve warm, perfect walking-around days.

The played Statesboro, Rider, Whipping Post and Melissa every night.  Dreams (albeit an 18 minute version) was played Saturday night only.  We had front row seats for three nights, balcony the other.

I went to Rose Hill on Sunday after P had left.  Visited the grave site.  Within sight of railroad tracks and the Ocmulgee River.  They would have wanted to be buried there.   Queen   Multi colored
