Porch Songs: Mobile, AL 1996

Mobile 1996

The 38th installment of the band’s Porch Songs series spotlights an elusive soundboard recording of the 1996 Bayfest performance in Mobile, Alabama. There’s no better way to put other than the band was just ON this particular evening. Whether it was because of the high-energy Mobile crowd or just the buzz from the start of another Fall Tour (Mobile being the second show of the tour) you can feel the excitement on stage as the band plays its first Bayfest.
