Its hard to believe that this moe. show was two months ago. It was nearly a perfect day in all respects. We got to the Ferry at 6 p.m. and took the nice short ride across the harbor after meeting some friends on the boat. Governor’s Island is an untouched classic old military base, and it is perfectly manicured. After a short walk to the concert site, we set up in front of the soundboard and checked in with our old taper friends. What followed was an excellent moe. concert which we experienced as a nice relaxing show on the grass. After over 3 hours of music, the only drawback was the wait for the ferry until after 11:30 p.m.

Our recording is one of the best we’ve ever captured. In the ideal location with our best rig, we were treated to a perfectly mixed concert by moe.’s superb sound crew. Enjoy!
