Jed Luckless @ Rock & Race 01.25.15

Here’s a show from throck_race_poster_1.25e Jammin Jed Luckless “Roll Over” Tour, which featured eleven dates at different venues across Secondlife in January and February of 2015 and highlighted original music off Jed’s forthcoming “Roll Over” CD.

This show took place at a new venue in SL, focused around a race track and racing community, but with an amazing stage reminiscent of Red Rocks, thus the name “Rock and Race” for this special stop on the tour. In addition to a beautiful stage and surroundings, the show featured a particle light show by Sky Fire. A great crowd came out for the concert, and the result was a high energy show full of great tunes, hot jams and good times.

Set I goes from zero to sixty with a “Maserati” opener followed by a turbo charged version of “The Race is On.” The tour’s title track “Roll Over” is next, with another couple Jed originals following it. A lengthy cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Eyes Of The World” features a jam tribute to Tangerine Dream, and leads to the set closing original (and JLB favorite) “Far Gone Blues.”

The second set isn’t quite as jammy, but features some great suprises and solid rockers, including several Jed originals, covers of the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, and the set’s centerpiece, the Phish song “Twist” mashed up with The Monkees’ “Steeping Stone” and “Daydream Believer.”

Also included here is the soundcheck jam which featured synths and an abridged version of Phish’s CDT. Enjoy!

Jed Luckless @ August West Amphitheater 03.03.10

jed-2010-03.03_photoHere’s a very special show from the Jed Luckless archives, featuring a two set tribute to Dave Nolan, a friend, supporter and beloved personality in the scene who passed away at too young an age.

Jed opens the show without alot of talk, bursting right into an improv intro jam typical of the time period (when Jed was using a rhythm box during his “warm up” jams before sliding into the opener). The real opener is “The Music Never Stopped,” which perfectly kicks off the thematic tribute. First set features a lengthy “Sugaree,” nice mid-set renditions of “Mr. Charlie” and “Box Of Rain” and a powerful climax with a “Not Fade Away” > “Truckin” combo.

Second set starts out with a tribute to Dave Nolan as Jed tells us a little about the man and his impact on the scene, followed with a poignant version of “Standing On The Moon.” The centerpiece of the set is the “Samson And Delilah” paired with Drums & Space and the melancholy “Black Muddy River.” Jed keeps it going and wraps up the show with “Foolish Heart” and a nice long jammy “Bird Song” send off.

This is one of those shows with a special energy, and as always lots of grate tunes and jams from Jammin Jed. Enjoy!

Note: The encore at this show was a “Bertha” > “Ripple” combination that was unfortunately not recorded. Included here instead is an epic “Ripple” encore from June 2, 2010 at the same venue and a “Bertha” set closer from November 23, 2009 at The Merry Prankster.

Jed Luckless @ The Speakeasy 09.17.10

09.17.10_picHere’s a special Jammin’ Jed show from 2010, which was a celebration of both Jedtainment and the birthday of Jedtainment PR Manager Beachy Piers. The show took place on September 17, 2010 at the Speakeasy in Secondlife and features a mix of Phish, Dead and original music, including several debuts and one-timers.

Set I opens with a jam, back in the days when Jed was using a beatbox for the opening jams. It’s a groovy beat that finds its way into the Trey Anastasio tune “Alaska” and a wild version of Phish’s “Scent of a Mule.” A few Jed originals follow, including the debut of the bluesy “Mizz Lizzy” and a powerful “Smile Forever.” The set wraps up with a rocking “Suzy Greenberg.”

Second set again opens with a jam, which segues into the Partridge Family’s “Stephanie.” This and a late set ZZ Top “La Grange” cover are debuts for Jed, and were never played again. The set also features a rocking “Catfish Friend” featuring Jed on drums, and a poignant version of the Grateful Dead’s “It Must Have Been The Roses.”

A heartfelt show full of poignant covers, rocking jams and debut tunes! Enjoy! 🙂

Set I: Jam→ Alaska→ Scent Of A Mule, The Wane, Miss Lizzy, Smile Forever, Suzy Greenberg

Set II: Jam→ Stephanie→ Joy, Catfish Friend→ Drums, It Must Have Been The Roses, La Grange, Strange Design, E: All At Once

Jed Luckless @ August West Amphitheater 07.23.09

jed_luckless_2009.07.23_coverThis classic Jed show from July 2009 show took place on the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, so its not surprising that it blasts off into space. It’s a true Jednesday affair as well, featuring two full sets of Grateful Dead music.

The first set opens with a jammin’ Candyman, and includes a bluesy New Speedway into a rare Railroad Blues. The incredible second set lifts off with a twenty-one minute warmup into Darkstar into Wharf Rat and out again. But the set reaches full orbit with a killer Playin’ In The Band leading to and incredibly inspired Drums and Space, perhaps due to the anniversary occasion, and back again through a dreamy, seamless segue.

The show wraps up with a rare Estimated and bouncy Cumberland. Enjoy!

Set II: Warmup Jam→ Darkstar→ Wharf Rat→ Darkstar, Playin’ In The Band→ Drums→ Space→ Playin’ Reprise, Operator→ Estimated Prophet, Cumberland Blues
