Despite having an extraordinary set list for you on this episode the mood is somber. Like I’m sure many of you, I was shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Dave Matthews Band sax player Leroi Moore. Speaking as a huge fan his loss is already sinking in but a deepest sympathy goes out to Leroi’s close friends and family. In addition to being a very gifted musician, every story that I have heard about his life off stage portrayed him as an all around great person.
The music for this show is a compilation of some of my favorite Leroi moments from past DMB concerts. These songs together celebrate a life that was cut too short but sweet for certain.

The LMP returns with another festival concert, this time from last years moe.down. The lineup for moe.down 8 was stellar and included the up and coming singer/songwriter Amos Lee. I’m not as familiar with his music as some of the other bands that I have featured so I’m going to keep this intro fairly short. I would describe his music as a hybrid of folk and soul with Norah Jones coming to mind with a few of his songs.
The live performance of his songs came across very well and it sounded like the crowd was digging it even if the style of music different from that of the festival’s founding fathers. The band also seemed to have a lot of fun, even pulling a Rick Roll on the crowd with a medley including Rick Astley’s 80s pop hit.
Please enjoy Amos Lee and company from their September 02, 2007 performance in Turin, New York.

In case you missed it on the Live Music Blog last week the Raconteurs have launched a live section on their website where you can listen to streaming audio from several concerts. Currently there are nine shows from 2007 and one for 2008 but hopefully more will be added in the future. If you like the Raconteurs you are definitely going to enjoy this.
