In 94 they were so horrible live I couldn't tell what song they were playing half the time. I did see them live at Zilker Park in Austin in 2006 and they played extremely well. They made a big deal about playing by the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue.

Still I've seen them 4 times in my life twice they were "below average," and once they were horrible and the other time they were damn good. That just says to me Kenny is smart in not spending money on what is essentially a gamble.
