Swallow Hill Music, Nissi’s, Quixote’s True Blue

Doctor Robert made it’s way to Colorado’s front range for three different and fun shows. We started the trip with an intimate show at Swallow Hill Music in the Swallow Hill Cafe (http://swallowhillmusic.org/). Blizzard conditions and the first really cold weather of the winter didn’t stop Beatles fans from coming out to the show, thanks to everyone who braved the elements. We weren’t able to recorder this show, but here’s a breakdown of the music:

Set I: Girl, All Together Now, Norwegian Wood, I’ve Just Seen a Face, I Feel Fine, Drive My Car, Hello Goodbye, Please Please Me, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Something, Back in the USSR –> Dear Prudence, Glass Onion –> Ob La Di Ob La Da, Can’t Buy Me Love, Love Me Do, Ballad of John and Yoko, While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Set II: Two of Us, Here Comes the Sun, What Goes On, Ticket to Ride, It Won’t Be Long, I Should Have Known Better, Hard Day’s Night –> All My Loving, Get Back, A Day in the Life

Notes: Set I: 18 songs/60 minutes, Set II: 10 songs/40 minutes.
Sound Check: I’ve Just Seen a Face, Lady Madonna

The next night we made our way to Lafeyette to play Nissi’s Bistro (www.Nissis.com), an amazing “Supper Club” type venue with great food, great sound, and a very enthusiastic crowd. The night was sold out, billed as a “Flashback to the 60’s” with Doctor Robert starting the show with 90 minutes of Beatles music, followed by Doors Tribute, The Strange Parade. If you get the chance to see The Strange Parade, take advantage of the opportunity. They are spot-on with the sound and put on a great show. Again, there was no recording from this show, but here’s what was played:

You Can’t Do That, Drive My Car, Lady Madonna, Hello Goodbye, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, The Night Before, Back in the USSR –> Dear Prudence, It Won’t Be Long, Mean Mr. Mustard –> Polythene Pam –> She Came in Through The Bathroom Window, Ballad of John and Yoko, While My Guitar Gently Weeps –> Ob La Di Ob La Da, A Hard Day’s Night –> Come Together, Hey Bulldog, Revolution, Get Back, One After 909, A Day in the Life, With a Little Help From My Friends, When I’m 64

Notes: 24 songs/90 minutes
Sound Check: Girl, I Want to Tell You, Paperback Writer
Opening band for The Strange Parade (Doors tribute)

The third and final night of our mini-tour brought us back to Quixote’s True Blue (www.Quixotes.com) for another unforgettable show at this classic Denver music venue. With posters of Jerry Garcia covering just about every square inch of the venue, how could a band not feel inspired to stretch out the music, giving some songs a little space to breathe. Last time we played Quixote’s, we were met by a wise man named Rex. This kind man came into our lives to point us in the direction of the jam. We weren’t quite prepared the first time around, but this time we were ready to impress Rex. Would he be there this time? No. We decided that his work was already finished with Doctor Robert, and that he was off at another venue, pointing another band toward the light. As it turned out, we did find some really fun musical spaces and stretched out the transitions like the best of the jambands. Here are some highlights from this unique show:

Strawberry Fields Forever –> I Am The Walrus

Birthday –> Back in the USSR

A Hard Day’s Night –> Come Together –> Helter Skelter –> Get Back
