Here's One You Might Have Missed...

For people interested in such things, here's a video that turned up recently on the web, a song only done in our show a few times--it's titled "Wake Up The Band," here, and it's based on a song from my "Taking America to America" album, where its title was "Hosty." The original lyrics were about the food in our hotel's hospitality suite, and the vocal was done by Julia Waters. On this one, Neil is singing and introducing the band members, including a rare sighting of trombonist Nick Lane.

    I remember Neil doing this song. It was a very unique and interesting way of introducing the band. Great rhythm and words. Would have liked to have seen him done this more often. Love how he always gave each of you the spotlight to shine. All of you are great musicians in your own right. And so honored to call you friends. Miss you all!!!

    Neil always said that you were “The best band in the land”. And you were! Damn, I miss you guys.

    This one rings a bell, if you'll excuse my lifting a lyric from the song. I think it may have been used in Lansdowne Road in Dublin in about 2005. A great way to introduce the band.
