Word Up

As friend alerted me to this fantastic news....

Longtime friends and collaborators Chris Chew, Cody Dickinson, Luther Dickinson (of North Mississippi Allstars), John Medeski, and Robert Randolph will be reuniting as "The Word" for four very special concerts this December. A limited number of pre-sale tickets go on sale this Saturday, November 3, at 10am EST. Visit the pre-sale site by clicking HERE

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 9. For information visit

Dec 26 Hartford, CT - Webster Theatre
Dec 27 New York, NY - Terminal 5
Dec 28 Philadelphia, PA - Electric Factory
Dec 29 Washington, DC - 9:30 Club

I caught them back in '01 at the then Irving Plaza and still rate that show among the best concerts I've seen over the last ten years - so you know I'll be at Terminal 5 on December 27th.

Here's a show off that same tour for your listening pleasure (via bt.etree)....

The Word - 2001-08-01 - Grassroots Festival, Oregon Ridge Park - Cockeysville, MD

And here's their appearance on Conan from the night before the aforementioned Irving show...
