Our friends at Jambands.com review the November 30 show from Crystal Bay Club near Lake Tahoe: "It’s always a treat to see these fine musicians perform, and Jeff Mattson is clearly an epic fit to the bands studied take on Grateful Dead music. Personally, because I wasn’t even alive for several years after this show was played, it’s super cool to get a little taste of what it would have been like to hear a Dead show go down in 1972."
