"DEAL" is awesome guys! totally enjoyed
Hey DH's, long time listener, first time caller. (lol)
I'm typing from my secret cave at the rear of my house in sunlight when you're at night. I'm also from the future. The future says Hi.
My first GD exp was via an underground comic that hipped me to them - but almost more important than the music, it established in my head that there was an entire group of people who had a connection to a band in a sense of community, not fandom. I think that's really cool.
Anyway, we're a band on our own trip, but one that might have met with some GD nod of approval in an alternate universe. In fact this could be the alternate universe. We can't really ever be sure.
Down here, in Sydney, we're part of a blues and roots scene. We're a bit nuevo, a bit retro and a bit mutant. Quite a bit.
We've been touring the states for the last two years and finding our way. We've found that same sense of connection in the mid west of the US and we're coming back this year.
I'm not super organised enough to have a list of dates etc, but i know we'll be in Rockford, Illinois 8/27 and in Indianapolis and Bloomington IN on the labor day weekend. Plus whatever random dates we can hustle LOL.
On behalf of your friends in the Stormcellar, i'd like to invite you come and experience another sense of community with us. We're powered by love, in search of the ecstatic and keen for a good time.
To peer inside our head go to www.stormcellar.com.au and because I can, here's one of our songs, written during our last tour, besides the Rock River, in Byron Illinois, and recorded at a studio about three blocks from my house in Five Dock, New South Wales Australia. Far out huh?
If this resonates with you, if you find us, be sure to come tell me.

Things got weird and we turned pro.

This *was* my GD tribute group.... Laughing Water. We are reuniting for a show in the Boston area this July - we think. Details still being worked out. I'm on keys.
I am doing new things now.. here's my current folk rock trio, Triptych.
Join the SLAP Jazz Quartet as they celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the founding of the Grateful Dead. The quartet will be performing a set of the Dead's music using jazz idioms and arrangements. The hour long set will be a condensation of the traditional two set Dead concert format, but will be true to form and flow of a show. Aside from a healthy dose of jamming, the show will contain many of Robert Hunter and John Barlow's best lyrical pieces.
Where: Lakewood Public Library, 15425 Detroit Ave, Lakewood, OH 44107
When: Sunday, April 12, 2 p.m.

I remember watching Shakedown Street play at Mishawaka in the Poudre Canyou in the early 90's. Great times! Keep on Truckin.
Aspiring musician/guitarist/vocalist stuck in an intermediate rut ISO other musicians in my area to jam with. I'm in Central Alabama near Birmingham. If you are out there feel free to PM me.
I play bass for this band and we're going to be at Quixote's this Saturday night, the 31st. It promises to be a great time, indeed!
