Grateful Dead Hour by David Gans

Week of February 4, 2008

Another program featuring former Grateful Dead vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux-Mackay.

Donna Jean and the Tricksters released an eponymous album in 2008. Personnel included four members of the Zen Tricksters - lead guitarist Jeff Mattson, who still works with Deej in between his obligations with Dark Star Orchestra; bassist-vocalist Klyph Black; rhythm guitarist-vocalist Tom Circosta; and drummer-vocalist Dave Diamond - plus vocalist Wendy Lanter and keyboardist-vocalist Mookie Siegel (David Nelson Band). This GD Hour features highlights from a live performance the band did on KPFA’s Dead to the World on September 19, 2007.

Also featured in this Hour is a sweet take on “China Cat Sunflower” by Sabertooth, a Chicago band led by saxophonist Pat Mallinger.

Enjoy!!
