How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The show was even better than you can imagine. We were fortunate enough to get to see Sean and Sara Watkins from Nickel Creek sitting in with the Acoustic Group, and I have a feeling the Wiltern was the only place they will be in the line-up. That said, this is a band playing at the very top of their form, and the give and take between them is a real joy to behold. The show leaned heavily on songs from the brilliant new recording "Release Me," but there were plenty of fan favorites as well. My personal highlight was "I Will Rise Up", featuring Russ Kunkel doing some stellar bang up boom boom drumming...but all the players had many chances to shine in the almost three hours they were on stage. LL will be out with The Large Band later this summer, but this incarnation has all the chops in place. A Strong Recommend.
