Page McConnell Aids an Ailing Al Schnier
As reported yesterday, Al Schnier is currently suffering from tendonitis in his right hand and, as a result, will not play guitar with moe. this week. While Schnier provided vocals last night at South Burlington, VTs Higher Ground, moe. enlisted the help of a few additional instrumentalists throughout the evening. Page McConnell, who recently joined moe. onstage at moe.down, played keyboards with the group for most of its first set, including on Blue Jeans and Pizza, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, Mexico, Happy Hour Hero, and Buster. For the second night in a row, Assembly of Dust guitarist Adam Terrell and veteran Vermont pedal steel ace Gordon Stone also joined moe. for much of its performance.
moe. opens a three-night stand at Buffalo, NYs The Town Ballroom, likely, with some more special guests.
