The crowd was a little late arriving at the show,(this might have something to do with the no smoking in bars law thats in effect in Cincinnati) but a very nice sized crowd none the less on a cold Tuesday night in Cincinnati. I believe the show started at around 8pm so they were pretty close to the start time. The show started off with Mississippi Half Step, Me and My Uncle and Sugaree. After the first 3 songs I was thinking it was probably a show from the early to mid 70’s but thats as far as my guess was going lol. Everyone in the band was performing extremely well last night and Lisa Mackey was doing an incredible job. As soon as the first few notes of I Know You Rider were played everyone’s hands went up in the air. DSO closed with Casey Jones. They also played Greatest Story Ever Told and Brothers and Sisters as fillers.
