Steely Dan @ Red Rocks, Morrison CO, 2016-06-13

I can appreciate that Steely Dan is a great band, and Steve Winwood who opened, but it's just not the kind of music I listen to on a regular basic.  Nor are these kind of concerts where you would normally find me.

A good friend called me months ago and floated the idea of me tagging along on for this one and I figured why not.  I had never seen Steely Dan or Steve Winwood.  Red Rocks is always an amazing experience too.

Well I definitely got more than I had bargained for in the experience department at this show.  About 15 minutes into Steve Winwood's set it started raining.  It had been intermittently sprinkling on and off all afternoon so not a big surprise.  Then it started coming down really hard and a man came on the stage and said "the show isn't canceled but you should go seek shelter right now".  Then it started hailing.  For about 15 minutes straight.  Marble to pea sized in general.  Not fun.  We hunkered down and waited for it to blow over.  I got totally soaked.  On the plus side it stayed pretty warm after the weather blew over.

Recording at Red Rocks can be tough.  After the weather blew through we were blessed with a totally calm night with damp heavy air.  That contributed to some great acoustics.  Even though I wasn't very close I think this turned out really nice.  Enjoy!!
