Benefit Concert for the Secoyas of the Equadorian Rainforest featuring John Medeski

John and Debi Medeski have finally realized a two-year long goal of bringing these very special representatives of a disappearing culture all the way from the rainforest of Ecuador to the mountains of upstate New York.  We are blessed by the presence of three elders and healers and their guide who has been living amongst and studying with them for many years.

Shakedown Street: 9-6-83 Red Rocks

In the live music venues of the Rocky Mountain region, there are only a few bands that consistently draw large crowds. One of the more notorious is Shakedown Street. By virtue of their success, they have proven that Grateful Dead music is an American musical institution that is rallied by hundreds of thousands and hard to resist . By necessity and demand, there are literally dozens of Grateful Dead cover bands in this country. However, Shakedown Street has garnered a national reputation as being the mother of all Dead bands!!

Shakedown Street has provided a musical and spiritual public service for "deadheads" for over 23 years. The Band has performed numerous times with former members of the Grateful Dead including; Vince Welnick (keyboards), Tom Constanten (Keyboards), Melvin Seals (B3 for JGB) and Bob Bralove (the Dead's longtime sound designer.) Shakedown Street has also played with and opened for many national acts including three shows with Hot Tuna, twice with the J.G.B. Band, twice with The David Nelson Band, Merl Saunders and the Rainforest Band, several shows with Spirit, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Jerry Jeff Walker, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Arlo Guthrie, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and The Colonel.

Tell President Obama to save Alaska's Rainforest

say no to clearcutting- for the Grateful Web

The inauguration of President Obama could mean the end of an eight-year assault on America's last pristine forests. We need your help to make sure the Obama administration makes a new commitment to protecting these remaining wild lands for generations to come.

Please go here to and urge President Obama to take immediate action to preserve the old growth wilderness of Alaska's Tongass National Forest.

In its final days, the Bush administration set in motion a plan to start clearcutting the ancient, majestic trees of the Tongass, our nation's largest intact rainforest.

Unless the Obama administration reverses this disastrous policy, chainsaws will start cutting through the Tongass as early as this spring, with logging in many of our nation's other pristine forests likely to follow.

When the Roadless Area Conservation Rule was first adopted, millions of Americans cheered its historic passing, which protected 58.5 million acres of wild national forest lands from development.

Over the past eight years, however, the Bush administration repeatedly attempted to dismantle the Roadless Rule. It refused to defend the rule in court, worked to rescind the rule one state at a time, and even went so far as to "exempt" the Tongass rainforest from roadless protections.

The Bush administration's final plan for the Tongass would increase logging fivefold, and create logging roads through priceless habitat for grizzly bears, thriving salmon runs, bald eagles, and the elusive Alexander Archipelago wolf.

Please send a message to President Obama  and urge him to uphold the historic Roadless Rule for our country's remaining pristine forests, including the Tongass rainforest.

Thank you for standing up to protect the Tongass National Forest.
