Randolph is a renowned pedal steel player, who enjoyed playing extended pedal steel solos throughout the set. In the middle of the show he invited a fan from the crowd to play guitar onstage with him and the band. That fan ended up playing the rest of the show. He also invited several girls from the audience to come up on stage and dance as he played the song “Shake Your Hips.”
The set also included an instrumental version of the Bobby McFerrin song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” and two Jimi Hendrix covers: “Foxey Lady” and an instrumental version of “Voodoo Chile” which was the show closer.
