Trombone Shorty and Band of Horses opened for My Morning Jacket, who performed at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 3, 2012. Trombone Shorty opened the show and fueled the enthusiastic crowd with their sophisticated jazz funky tunes. Followed by Band of Horses who, despite the windy and overcast weather, did not disappoint, playing their emotional crowd favorite, “No One’s Gonna Love You.”

Starting their set with “Rollin’ Back,” My Morning Jacket performed variety of songs from their discography. Ranging from their 1999 debut album Tennessee Fire to the most recent Circuital, My Morning Jacket had a long set list that combined a good mix of dreamy tunes, to intense rock tunes, that captivated the hearts of true rock fans. Front man, Jim James, exercised his powerful voice, seemingly not needing a microphone. The band also did some magnificent covers, Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” Erykah Badu’s “Tyrone,” and “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS, of course, putting their personal “flavor” into the songs. During the set, the band invited Ben Bridwell from Band of Horse to cover “Wonderful (The Way I Feel).”  The harmony between Bridwell and James were phenomenal, melodic, and powerful.

The band played seven more songs after the encore—no sign of slowing down. My Morning Jacket led the  Red Rocks crowd through the night with their amazing talent and immense energy.
