    Smile Mandolin Orange in SLO! Going!!

    We will be in San Luis Obispo visiting our son and family in July, and turns out Mandolin Orange is playing a few blocks from his house! It is rare for me to get out like this so that makes it even more special. We have our tickets and I am so excited to hear them. My favorite of their songs is Wrecking Ball, but there are so many of their tunes I love. I want to see Andrew playing that Gilchrist that has been spotted in recent appearances. Anybody else that has seen one of their shows or is going to this one?

    You'll be disappointed. The Gilchrist is gone. You'll have to settle for Andrew playing a Loar.....

    Saw their show last month at the El Rey in LA. Just extraordinary. At the moment, my favorite group by far. Exquisite singing and playing. Andrew is one of the best songwriters alive today. They are a magical couple. Have a great time.

    Saw the show in Seattle last month and will be seeing them again in August at Pickathon. You will certainly not be disappointed in the playing, but as noted above the Gil is gone, replaced by a Loar.

    That is interesting... A Loar sighting will be worth the price of admission! How do you love that wonderful Ellis?

    Saw them last night in Chattanooga, and let me tell you... he’s been playing the snot out of it. I heard some new licks that can only come from spending hours of quality time with it. Just a fantastic show as always!

    I saw them two nights ago in Louisville. The Loar sounded wonderful. These guys are at the top of their game. What a treat!

    Heard them when he had just acquired the Gil...it sounded incredible. I guess MAS afflicts even the best of players.
