I'd like for OCMS to tighten up a bit, yes. But if we can get dancing girls on stage with Del, then we got somethin'!

I like Wagon Wheel, too. Looks like one of the banjo players is playing a 6-string guitjo/bantar thingy.

Just saw OCMS again this last Sunday. They still have their original member playing the gitjo, but have replaced Critter with a new 5-string CH player. He's a better banjo player than Critter, IMHO, and I could actually hear him in the mix. He did absolutely NO drop thumb, which is a bit strange. But his playing was very good nonetheless. A real good version of Reuben's Train, for instance.
This will, in all likelyhood, be the last time I go see these guys. They were WAY too loud. I know I suffered permanant heaing loss. That is at least partially the fault of the venue. Words were inaudible, there was feedback and,at several points, literally painful volume levels. My ears still hurt 2 days later!!
They now use a drum kit for somes pieces...and a piano...and a mandolin player (who could not be heard in the mix). There interest seems to be drifting more and more to the blues and rock-n-roll. That's OK, but not where my taste is at. I still love their energy and their fearless singing. They seem very into their stage antics. I'd rather they put their energy into their music.
