Duke and the king at the Colony Cafe (Mercy Review)

Colony Cafe
Woodstock NY
August 1, 2009

New band member Simmie played three songs before the band came out, first on electric violin, next two on acoustic guitar.

The Morning I Get to Hell
The Devil is Real
If You Ever Get Famous
Don't Wake the Scarecrow
I've Been Bad
Union Street
Your Belly in My Arms
Angels in Heaven
Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me) [cover of the Temptations song]
Radio Song
Long May You Run (Simone said that it was written for a car, but he was singing it for his brothers, with Ian, James, and Claire Felice, Christmas, & Farley joining him on stage!, written by Neil Young)
Two Hands (with Ian on guitar, and Christmas on bass)
Radio Song (again) (with Pete on Sax, sung by Ian, James, the Deacon, and, last verse only, Simone)
Still Remember Love
One More American Song

Simmie played electric violin on Scarecrow, Suzanne (intense jam with Chicken at end), Mercy, Long May You Run, possibly others.

Simone was surprised to see the Felice Brothers band in the audience -- he was not expecting them.

thanks to Mercy again for on the spot account of a local show.
