Old Union and Mile 8
October 29, 2005
When two of Nashville’s favorite bands decided to stage the ultimate Halloween jam band concert, no one knew just how great the show would go down and what a fantastic DVD would come of it.
During an almost four-hour show, Old Union and Mile 8 play alternating sets, both individually and collectively, as musicians move on and off stage and the music just keeps on coming.
Old Union rocks in true Allman Brothers fashion,and Mile 8 appear to have some true Frank Zappa meets Primus vibes going on. When the bands unite, the sound is truly fresh and exciting, from the very first song up until the final encore cover of the Allman’s “Jessica.”
As an added bonus,there is some pretty wacky band-shot video footage from the road, including band pranks and interview outlaws.
Superior jams and unexpected musical twists and turns make this a very special show, and a historic document of two upcoming bands on their way to the top.
