Dark Star Orchestra 2011 Summer/Fall Tour News

Dark Star Orchestra is currently on-tour. They'll be in Colorado in just another week, before heading up to the true Great Northwest.. in Alakska!  Check out a full list of tour dates below as well as updates to their current summer tour.

As the wheel of the year begins the slow downward turn into winter, it's time to think of the long nights and frosty stars. Where will we be when the snow starts to fall? On our Fly Through the Night tour, flying above the city lights of the East Coast, strung together like clusters of diamonds on the black planet below. Finding comfort in some of our usual haunts in DC and Virginia as well as touching down in some new venues in New England, we'll sing a little while for you, and then fly on. If you're in our fan club, tickets are already available; the general public can get tickets starting on August 5th. Visit our tour page for details.

Sometimes we visit your country

Wondering where we'll be carried away in March of 2012? To that great city of blended cultures and sidewalk cafes, clean canals and bicycles, Van Gogh and anything goes, the Venice of the North. It's Amsterdam, and we're thrilled to be playing for All Good and Vision International's 6th Jam in the Dam. Come see the silent seeds all burst into bloom and decay. Wait - don't visit our tour page for this one - go straight to the Jam in the Dam site, and check it out!

The Last Rose of Summer

Jam In the Dam 2012 Festival Announced

All Good and Vision International present the return of Jam in the Dam: a multi-day, multi-room extravaganza held at the legendary Melkweg in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on March 14, 15 and 16, 2012.

Celebrating music in an intimate atmosphere, the sixth edition of Jam in the Dam features the music of moe., Mike Gordon (of Phish), Dark Star Orchestra (continuing the Grateful Dead concert experience) , Lotus and Keller Williams. Each artist will play extended sets all three nights in one of the two concert halls, all under one roof.  With this conjunction of musical stars, mind-blowing collaborations are just the beginning.

The music runs from 8:00 pm to 2:30 am.  This schedule allows fans to enjoy the wonders of Amsterdam by day and rock out by night. The city's rich cultural offerings include famous museums and art galleries such as the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum; cozy pubs and café terraces; open-air markets and trendy boutiques; and of course the legendary coffee shops. This unique opportunity to combine the exploration of a world-class European city with the expansion of musical horizons is what makes Jam in the Dam an experience not to be missed.

Tickets are available starting March 24 at http://jaminthedam.missiontix.com at $225 Early Bird pricing, saving $60 off of the gate. In Europe, tickets will go on sale soon at http://www.ticketmaster.nl, and will be priced at 170 Euro for Early Bird.  Single night tickets are available in Europe for 60 Euro.

Travel packages including special perks will be available from CID Entertainment, including options for installment payments. Complete Jam in the Dam festival information and travel support is available online:

No Jam in the Dam 2011, look for return in 2012

A note from the organizers of the Jam in the Dam Festival:

Dear Friends,

After long consideration, we have decided to postpone Jam in the Dam until 2012. We really wanted to do it for the fans, including our growing base of Europeans for whom this show is the one chance each year they can enjoy what many of us here take for granted. We had sincere interest from many bands this year, but in the end, we felt like we did not have a line-up that would be ‘new and improved’ from years past. With the economic climate and the expense involved in traveling to Europe, we find that Jam In the Dam may be more approachable for the fans and may become more successful as a biannual event.

Amsterdam offers a cultural experience unlike that of any other festival in this genre. Ask anyone who has been, and they will rave about the atmosphere and intimate nature. We are planning to have 2012 ready to go by February 2011, so that we can offer a choice to traveling jamband fans. This will also give people a year to plan for the time off and save their money. Also, we’re working on more weekend days so more of our friends from Europe can become part of our growing scene there.

Most people who are fans of this amazing event know what the founder, Armand Sadlier, has been through, but rest assured his health is better than ever. This event will NOT go away, and his love of Amsterdam will be the catalyst for continuing to bring people to one of the most beautiful and welcoming cities on Earth! See you in 2012!

Natchez Bound & The Millbridge Brothers at The Dam

Michelle from Natchez Brown- for the Grateful Web

The Dam Mountain Jam is a new night of music that happens every Thursday at Cactus Jack's Saloon in downtown Evergreen, starting at 9:00.  It began as a few friends looking for an outlet for their songwriting and acoustic music, and has quickly grown into the best thing going in Evergreen - a crowd of friends and music lovers keeping things cozy, good beer and good vibes from the friendly folks at Jack's, and best of all, sweet music pouring from the stage all night long, from the simple and soulful to the rockin' and rowdy.

Every week you'll hear Natchez Bound and The Millbridge Brothers. Natchez Bound started off as an acoustic side project of the band Purple Buddha and has grown into a full-blown band with Isaac on guitar and vocals, Michelle on vocals, Stork on bass, Dominick on mandolin, guitar and vocals, Christopher on percussion, and Les on the drum kit.

The Millbridge Brothers are a recently reunited band that started off in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania a few years back and eventually landed in Evergreen. The band is Rob on guitar, banjo, harmonica, and vocals, Dominick on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, John on percussion, keys, and vocals, and Matty on bass. We're really excited to be getting it going again, and soon we'll be playing with Sam on drums. We often have special guests, which in the past have ranged from solo songwriters to bluegrass to funk and jam bands. So far it's been a growing family of musicians and friends, and if you're reading this, that probably includes you, thanks for coming out to party with us. See ya Thursday.
