Gratefulfest 9 - A Weekend to Remember
DSO wants to thank all of you who made it out and were a part of another wonderful weekend of Gratefulfest out at Nelson's Ledges. Dan Healy naturally killed it on the mixing board, using the Meyer line-array rig that he practically invented and we were honored to have our friends, Donna-Jean and Keller Williams sit in with us. Additionally, we continued the tradition of supporting Rett Syndrome research by raising $2500 through GratefulFest supporters; that brings the total since 2003 to over $15,000!! DSO would like to offer a special thanks to everyone who contributed to this special cause and especially to Julie Fultz and Erika Seth for running the raffle booth. So, what a fantastic weekend - thanks again for coming out and sharing it with us!
"Like a Tumbleweed" Tour Kicks Off
The summer is almost over but things are still heating up on the road for Dark Star Orchestra. Starting this month, the band will be heading out west -starting the tour in Kansas City then running through Tulsa, Austin, Dallas, San Diego, 3 nights at the Fillmore in San Francisco and all points in between. Joining us behind the boards for the entire tour will be "The Maestro" Dan Healy who mixed the Grateful Dead for many years. We are honored to have him "on the bus" and hope you can join us for this special run of shows. The tour will also include another exciting Black Tie Die Ball at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on September 27. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Rex Foundation, celebrating its 25th anniversary! Come by early and hang with DSO at the pre-show reception; we hope to see you there!
