Marek, and all:

Because I sent my message from my phone the usual header was stripped  
- I was the one who just saw them in Sacramento. After I sent the  
message I stayed on to hear their full set - it was equally as good as  
the first 3 numbers that inspired me to write!

As for exposure - the number of people who go to New Orleans (post  
Katrina) has dropped a lot - having the band play in Sacramento for  
the first time meant a lot to the group (I chatted with several  
members before and after the set.) They don't get to the West Coast  
much - they did have some difficulties with the airlines on this trip  
- and they were glad to have such an attentive and appreciative  
audience. I noticed quite a few other musicians walking by the stage  
stopping and then staying for at least several numbers - they are a  
band that has a subtle impact, but they  "get it!"
