Purchase the DVD
A DVD of the documentary, with over an hour of DVD extras, is on sale exclusively at http://reynold.com/my-music/life-well-played-dvd-audio-cd-bundle/. The extras include eight solo acoustic guitar performances by Reynold, and an “Up Town: From Concept to CD” feature which follow Reynold as he writes, records, mixes and masters the documentary theme track, “Up Town.”
As of now, this is the projected song list. The theater does have a Steinway, so Gregg will play that instrument. A nice plus of playing at this hall.
The set list is mainly my own music. I do include Nuages, by Django Reinhardt just because he is so essential to my history and I am identified as one of his many descendants. My Girl is included because it was in my first set list at 12 years old and I still have followers who like to hear me sing a couple of songs.
Bohemian Flats and Chrysanthemum are new pieces of mine which will be played for the first time live.
As I said before, Matt and Michael have been my main partners for years. Gregg and I have been friends for longer than Matt has been alive, and Gregg and I have played on many recordings together. This show however will be the first time Gregg and I play a live gig together.

1) Through Rose Colored Glasses (solo guitar)
