Description
12.21.92 The Bayou, Washington DC

We’ve dug deep into the archives to bring you the oldest and rawest show to date: 12.21.1992 The Bayou, Washington, DC. To our knowledge, there is no record of this show in the fan community or any seeded recordings.

DMB performed as the bar band at The Bayou during the holiday season in 1992 as evidenced by the sounds of the bar and holiday revelers on the recording. Peter Griesar was still with DMB during this time and his harmonica on So Much To Say kicks off the first set. Songs of note on the release include Pay For What You Get which quiets the crowded bar a bit, offering the other band members a chance to catch their breath and enjoy the soulful sounds of LeRoi’s sax. Two Step as the second set opener lights the crowd on fire again and the momentum continues with Help Myself which has an urgent energy to it likely due to Carter’s blazing hot drumming. The DC show ends with a little holiday nugget by Dave in the form of Christmas Song.

12.21.1992 The Bayou, Washington D.C. has been digitally mastered and is available in its entirety.  Item #: DMDD69

Jim (7/12/2010)
I've been a DMB fan since the earliest of days.. and I was fortunate enough to be in the audience on the night of this recording, looking down in awe on the band from the upper balcony. Dave's presence was still developing but you could sense the greatness that this blended jazz, world, funk, blues, rock, bluegrass poetry was going to achieve. It was an intimate encounter that set me chasing the band with great regularity and plunged me even deeper into my expensive DAT trading hobby, just so I could hear more of the magic. Carter's drumming was "athletic" to say the least. I swear I remember him busting a skin that night, and still he was smiling ear to ear like the cat the got the cream. Leroi (bless his memory) was on his game and honking up a storm. It was raw, but perfect on all fronts. It was hard not to realize that these men were on the cusp of something truly wonderful. This is a tapers/traders/bootleggers recording. It's a "hybrid," meaning it's a digital tap off the soundboard combined with field microphone feeds that capture not only the bands gift to the audience but audiences feedback as well. It puts me right back into my stage-left balcony, beer in hand, smell of excitement and the feel of electricity in the air. It's a true capture of that winter night, and the early days of the band. It puts a tear in my eye to know that the Bayou is no more, and that we will never again have a chance to reproduce this experience (the Bayou was destroyed flooded a few times, closed and ultimately destroyed a few years after this recording was made.) If you've ever wondered just how true to their origins the band has remained over the years and their success, this is the reference recording you need. Ten minutes into listening to this show and you'll know, the music and the energy have grown but the seed from which it came has not been molested. Enjoy!! Jim
