Opryland Nuptials For Chuck Garvey (Maybe)
Nashvilles Ryman Auditorium served as the home for the Grand Old Opry for many years and also functioned as the site of last evenings moe. show but during Sundays performance it also doubled as a wedding hall. Early in the second set, moe. guitarist Chuck Garvey and his longtime girlfriend Amy Ross were married by bass player Rob Derhak (and while some may see this as mock Daisy Mae/ Lil Abner shtick, the word on the street is that Derhak was ordained on-line in order to perform the ceremony). As for the music, the quintet offered two sets of Nashville-infused music including covers of Man of Constant Sorrow, Eastbound and Down and Seven Bridges Road along with re-arranged moe. compositions such as Time Again and Bullet (the latter appeared on some setlists as Grassfinger). The third set of the evening focused on moe. originals done up moe.-style including two of the new songs that the band began performing his tour, The Road’ and The Pit.
