on August 17 1997 I went alone and saw the H.O.R.D.E. festival this time it was an 8 hour concert and it was awesome the opening bands were Ween,Chrysalis,Spiritualized and The Taj Mahal Band, followed by Leftover Salmon,
Toad The Wet Sprocket Then Primus, Blues Traveler, and The headliner was Neil Young. When Neil was supposed to come on there was a terrible thunderstorm with heavy pouring rains. Most of the crowd,left I didn't and neither did Neil Young. When the rain stopped even though there was a very small crowd left Neil played for 3 hours,every great song he has what a show.

Excellent band. I remember seeing them on multiple H.O.R.D.E. Festival shows. Always a fantastic live band. Their 2003 live dvd at Red Rocks (Thinnest of Air) is awesome.

How are these guys live these days. They still rock out and do some extended jams or mostly just playing a hits set?

They rocked out on Devil went down to Georgia and Run Around,
the other songs were more fit for a cruise ship a lot of island influence.
They did 3 sets I was only there for the first set so not sure when they came back
on for the other 2 what they played.  We were at Epcot in Orlando and just stumbled
onto this concert didn't know they were going to be there.
