JBLZE and Heart last night

I saw Jason Bonham and Heart last night at Riverbend amphitheater in 
Cincinnati.  It was a great night of Zeppelin music and perfect weather 
conditions along the banks of the Ohio river.  JBLZE experience came on around 
7:30 and played for maybe an hour.  It seemed to go by way too fast.  I just 
wished they could have played more, but as the opening act, I understand that 
their time was limited. For me the absolute standout song of the set was When 
The Levee Breaks.  The slide guitar playing was fantastic and they even brought 
out a harmonica player for that part of the song.  Not sure who the harmonica 
player was but he looked like one of the guitar techs I had seen working around 
the side of the stage (not sure about that).  Jason really nailed the huge drum 
sound of that song!
I never imagined I would attend a Heart concert (especially not in the year 
2013) but they really put on a rockin' show.  They ended their set with an 
awesome version of Crazy on You.  Ann and Nancy's version of Battle of Evermore 
was superb also.  Just the two of them out front with acoustic guitar and 
mandolin.  Seeing Jason's band playing with Heart was incredible and I imagine 
a tour like this will never happen again so I'm really glad I had an 
opportunity to experience it.
