Tom Constanten announces Shows in Arizona and Las Vegas

- for the Grateful Web

Tom Constanten and Ken Foust have released a new CD called "Moved To Stanleyville". They are playing shows in Arizona and Las Vegas with Gent Treadly, a Manhattan based jam band who were Vince Welnick's east coast band before his death, in support of this new project. The dates include Prescott College, Tempe, Flagstaff, and Sedona.

Tom Constanten is an American keyboardist, best known for playing with the Grateful Dead from 1968-1970. Tom has been performing in different forms and genres since the late 1950's, appearing at such popular venues as The Fillmore Auditorium, Playboy After Dark, and the original Woodstock Festival. He was Professor of Music at SUNY Buffalo and the San Francisco Art Institute (1974-1984).  He performed as Artist-in-Residence at Harvard University, and consulted for the Smithsonian Institution.

Ken Foust is a Charlotte, NC musician best known for his jam-blues based project from the early 90's, Hot Wax (see Spread base, 10/27/1990), that played in the southeast region.  Together they have produced a contemporary Americana / blues effort that is fresh and engaging. These shows will feature songs from the project. This live group also includes Greg Koerner from Gent Treadly on Base and Ken's Twin Brother Doug Foust on Drums.

The CD is garnering great reviews. The album is featured on David Gans's "The Grateful Dead Hour" and Uncle Dave's weekly radio program, "Dead Air.
