Hey Ed!

Thanks for posting the setlist. We sure enjoyed the show last night, was just a great atmosphere, crowd was really into the show, much dancing occurred....

As usual, I will miss seeing The Jayhawks, as this is their last show, except for the end of the year show up in Minneapolis. Hopefully they will have more shows next year when I am able to get around better.

We loved seeing Ed, Sandy, Ben, and Bill! Till the next time.... :) Joyce (and Jerry)

Oh, and yes, special thanks to Pd (and Sandy), even though we didn't have to use, they were very much appreciated!

They sounded great in that old ballroom. This was the fourth time I've seen the band perform in Milwaukee, and this was by far the best/nicest venue. (Even sounded decent when I was in the bathroom!)

Crowd was really into it. A woman kept yelling for "...Last Cigarette" and they finally played it toward the end of the main set. Afterward, I overheard some people saying it was: the best Jayhawks show they'd ever seen / the most emotionally moved they've been at a show in a long time / how the hell aren't these guys/gal bigger than they are?

Chet continued to impress me. I have no idea what the band's plans are for beyond 2016, but they need to keep this guy! He was even doing some serious jamming high on the neck of the bass while Perlman was rocking Chet's custom Epiphone during "Bad Time".

"Until You Came Along" was a nice surprise...knew something was going to be different when "Tailspin" appeared so early in the set and "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" closed the main set.
