      Bromberg and the band were great, but the webcast was awful --- even on low res it was jerky, and would freeze up. Wouldn't do it again.

      great performance, a real unexpected treat for this long time DB fan. Checking emails late Sunday night I got email from David's camp, show was starting in 5 minutes. Easy to initiate concert window, but frequently dropped signal thru first half of show was very frustrating and not many performers would keep me rebooting my iPad signal. Good tune selection - wish concert window listeners could've heard the second encore which was performed acoustically in front of the mics. Bravo!!

      Bromberg and the band were awesome, as always. Unfortunately, their finale was strictly acoustic; they walked away from the microphones. The webcast went silent. Regardless, I got to see a concert I wouldn't have seen any other way. I'm a concert window fan as of now.

David Bromberg has played with half the Beatles, a good portion of the Grateful Dead, Dylan, Carly Simon, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, and Phoebe Snow. His original songs are clever, funny, and often profound. The depth of his knowledge of traditional folk and blues is staggering. His current quartet includes Mark Cosgrove on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, Butch Amiot on bass and vocals, Nate Grower on fiddle, mandolin, and vocals, and David on guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and vocals.

For years David earned a living as a New York studio musician, playing in sessions with a Who’s Who of folk and rock and roll greats. His own albums like Demon in Disguise and How Late’ll Ya Play ’Til grabbed him a major audience, and his live performances won him fans for life. He pulled back from performing in 1980 to make violins, but since then occasionally ventured onstage and into the studio, delighting audiences and releasing several more albums. His latest, Use Me, features guest appearances from John Hiatt, Tim O’Brien, Vince Gill, Los Lobos, Widespread Panic, Dr. John, Keb’ Mo’, Linda Ronstadt, and the late Levon Helm.
