Rhythm Devils in Steamboat Springs

The whole town came out to Howelsen Hill yesterday to listen to the Rhythm Devils. The show was part of the Summer Free Concert series; huge thank yous for the promoters for finally getting a band other than the Wailers.

For those of you not familiar with the Rhythm Devils, the band was founded by Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead. Over the years their band has had a revolving troupe of members. This summer the Rhythm Devils include the one-man band of Keller Williams (guitar, vocals), Davy Knowles (Backdoor Slam – guitar, vocals), Andy Hess (bass), and Sikiru Adepoju (talking drum).




Set-list:

Sitting on Top of the World
Iko Iko
Comes a Dawn
Fire on the Mountain
Fountains of Wood
Ticket to Nowhere
Good Lovin
Voodoo Zombies
Wrecking Crew
Encore: Almost Cut My Hair

Show notes: Voodoo Zombies was awesome; Davy Knowles is amazing and Mickey Hart managed to screw up Iko Iko. Seriously, how many times has he played that damn song? Pretty funny.
