Wave that flag! For the first time ever, FANS will rebroadcast the final three shows of Fare Thee Well from JULY 3, 4, and 5, 2015, on SUNDAY, JULY 5, 2020. Fare Thee Well marked the final time in history that Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann would share the stage together.
Greg Anton (drums) and Scott Guberman (keyboards) met a few years back when Scott relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area. Guberman loves Robert Hunter’s lyrics and reached out to Anton to see if he had any unfinished songs with Hunter lyrics. Anton has co-written 33 songs with Hunter and had a couple that had not been properly recorded, so Anton and Guberman started writing together.
As the wheels of the Grateful Dead keep turning, two of its founding members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, have found themselves traveling on different paths. Weir is currently a member of the supergroup Dead & Company with John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, frequent collaborator Jeff Chimenti, and two other Grateful Dead members Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart. Phil Lesh on the other hand operates the Dead-themed venue Terrapin Crossroads and performs with an ever-rotating cast of musicians in Phil Lesh and Friends.
Steve Forbert’s latest cover and accompanying video of the Grateful Dead’s “Box of Rain” is a timely release considering our shared experience surrounding COVID-19. This monumental song originated with one of the Dead’s founding members, Phil Lesh, composing the music, while Robert ‘Bob’ Hunter wrote the lyrics. Lesh came to identify the song with his dying father. He would practice singing as he drove to the hospital and later the nursing home. Death surrounds us.
"I listened to the album two or three times that night just taking it in, living in its world, and loving it, trying to understand what this feeling was. It wasn’t happy, nor was it sad. Yet, it reflected the presence and possibility of every emotion in the rainbow, and the recording was unbelievable. The talent and musicianship were undeniable. The lyrics melted my mind." - My Morning Jacket's Jim James On American Beauty
11E1even Group, in conjunction with Nugs.tv and Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, is proud to announce the artist lineup for week-six of the new digital content series, "Live From Out There.” This unprecedented virtual festival has now raised close to $300k for artists and crews affected by loss of work due to COVID-19.
"To my ears, the best Dead shows are those that not only fit the criteria that make them amongst the best of a year, but that are also completely unique for their era—shows that fit perfectly into their year of performance, but also fall somewhat outside of the norm for that year. Harpur College, Veneta, Cornell, Cape Cod, and Augusta are all shows that are objectively excellent, and if they are not the best from their respective years of performance, they are certainly unique.
While the music world turns to live streams and fresh content, Borderland Festival has shared unreleased footage of Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass featuring Oteil Burbridge and the Infamous Stringdusters rehearsing “Eyes of the World” in the historic equestrian stables at Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora, NY, just outside of Buffalo.
