The Last Supper

I've always been a fan of private party jams.  You're enjoying a beer and dessert in the kitchen when you decide to mosey your way into another room where you hear music- and end up looking like this:

Private Party, Watertown, CT

Boogie On Reggae Woman
New Tune(2)>
Down with Disease>
If I Could> (3)
G String

Show Notes

This show was played at a private party and will not be included in official stats (for those of you counting at home).  No bass fires were reported at this show.

Jim 3/9/2013
