Other former bandmates included Jay Lane, Steve Kimock, Jeff Chementi, and Robin Sylvester. Other special guests included former collaborator D.J. Logic and Luckas Nelson.

   The band played plenty of classics including an emotional"I Shall Be Released". Once Mule joined, a hybrid of the two bands played rousing versions of "Thats what love will make you do" and "Riders on the Storm" among many others. Thanks to Jambase and Jay Blacksberg we have plenty of videos to enjoy of this once on a lifetime event.
