You should definitely work on putting that Sault bonnaroo together brother....You all deserve a festival for sure!!!! Even though my sorry ass is not welcome in Canada(by the G-men anyway) I would risk crashing the border for a good show in that special part of the World....
I'm sorry but, the dates in Canada have all but, dryed up!(used to be JGB in copps coliseum or molson park!!!) as far as I'm concerned, I am a looooong time deadhead (and I followed them all over the states until 9/11 and they wouldn't let me in)and I'm just a little frustrated with the amount of canadian shows! I've heard of one in Ottawa in the last four years! I don't think that the dead are playing for money anymore ,but enjoyment! I live in Sault ste. marie.... a border city that is looking for any way to boost our economy I think it would be great if say bands like the dead,Moe or umphrees mcgee or any canadian jam, bluegrass or jazz bands that would love to play would start a canadian style bonneroo here I would love it ...the fact that my kids alone,who weren't at the last shows of garcia, could just see the good vibes and great people that are around would be awsome!!!!!I hope some of you agree with me peacealways ! and keep smiling!
Hi all - I am newly arrived in beautiful Vancouver - long time deadhead from the Bay area - 350+ shows and wish I had a ticket for the next one...
Where are we all here? Anyplace where we congregate? Man, I miss my peeps from SF but I know there are some of us here. Let's find each other and have a party. I had a great little group of heads in Melbourne (Oz) for a few years and NONE of them had even been to one show. The magik is profound.
So, if you are out there - communicate!
LOVE to ALL,
Those crazy canuck fans got nothin on Hab's fans. Even when the Montreal Canadians win they still find reasons to rape and pillage. Yep, we love our hockey...and our Tim Horton's.
though the "Cup" may be lined with silver, it's more precious than "Gold". I'm sorry for your loss Vancouver, but hey, you beat us there in the Olympics last year, you'll get over it. Peace !
I would've never made it out of there alive !!! (p.100,June 1, current events) "Stanley's" silver cup will now have a home in Boston with the "Bruins". I used to be in the Bobby Orr fan club. Thank you Boston Bruins, 3 game seven's you won, sounds like Blackjack to me, congratulations on a dream come true.
Don't mean to stir the pot or anything but the scene in downtown last night was disturbing to say the least. I never understood why you would want to destroy your own city.

Remembering that you only live once, or at least for all I know, I just spent some $$ on some great seats, for my son and I, for the Furthur show at Constellation Brands Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua NY on July 26.
We would love to meet up with fellow CanHeads while down there for some Jamming before show or at Letchworth State Park before or after show. Mind you the state Park is nowhere near the show (about 1hr20min away), but it looks way too amazing to miss, so we are going to explore it for a few days around the show. I may even have my wife and daughter with us for the camping portions this year, if it all works out.
Anyway my son and I had so much fun last year with the crew that showed up during the show, around the show, and around the campground before and after the show that I send this e-mail out in hopes some of you may be heading or end up heading down there for the show. I would love to get in some more jams......last years adventure was such a high point for me....the jamming was the best, especially the amazing jams outside the show before the concert and the massive jam at the campgroud under the shelter during the downpour...unforgetable/priceless....."Ra-a-a-ainnnn I don't mind..........Shi-i-i-ine the weathers fine.........". So perfect.........
Either way, may more amazing times come your way this summer.......
