Thanksforsharing

Hey All: Well, Playing in the..thanks for sharing your Franklins story. Ya we all have some some song that just hits a certain chord and that is the one for me..love the lyrics and the help ..slip ...into.. My favorite to listen to was a show the Silver Bowl Las Vegas in 1993..i saw it live and it was the best Franklin's ever..light and dancing and magical..gives me shivers to think about it and the kindess of the strangers that were friends i hadn't met yet..great times.

Nice to hear someone elses experience. Wish i sawmore shows this time around find it a little hard here up North but there is such a great network of folks on the bus like yourself makes it easier to continue to "see the light once in a while if you look at it right" ..it's a state of mind..Nothing left to do but smile smile smile...
p.s still love to hear of any local events in Vancouver BC

cheers and blessings ..warms my heart and fills me with many grateful memories

Another beautiful Grateful Dead moment

Hi all,

Back at the family cottage this weekend. First trip this year. Needed something extra mellow during our tidy up (as per request from my lovely wife). Well I put on American beauty. It's been a while since it struck me so.....American Beauty at the cottage.....aaaahhhhh....so perfect...anyway.....

Peace,

Franlinsfantastic,

I do agree with your names proclamation....Franklin's Tower is fantastic!.....my earliest Frankin's memory (and strongest).....I can remember getting out of my tree at the cottage and being blown away by Franklin's Tower from Dead Set. I didn't know much about live dead performances at the time, nor did I know the song, it just got in under my skin and lifted me up higher and higher.....roll away the dew.....that makes me think of this year's Buffalo show.....the entire place lifted up into space at bunch of times......they are so good at that.....

Anyway, I guess I came here just to say hi....so, hi there...

Peace,

P.S. sorry can't help out with your Vancouver scene quest...good luck!

VancouverDeadHeads?

Hey Now: Any body out there see the show in Quincy in May? I was just listening to my download again..man drums was awesome, the women are smarter was an unexpected treat and box of rain was a nice closer. I didn't get my Franklins after about 13 years without a show but it was all good. It was my first show since jerry left us in the 90's and it felt like coming home. Plus, i went with a friend who had never seen the Dead back in the day and now he's on the bus.
Any dead type gatherings I can find out about in Vancouver?

Merci les amis!

Hi Playin

It is hard to locate a proper list of Ontario festivals - I was having slim luck just now. http://www.festivalsandeventsontario.ca/ has many events listed but many music fests are missing. I don't have so much info on SW Ont fests but I do know that Peterborough holds our free music fest on Saturday, August 29th - a great day out and worth the travel.

Salut Richard

Les préparatifs ont commencé, mais le plus grand défi c'est de terminer mon emploi pour un congé de 2 mois!!!! Youpiiieee!! L'instruction, pour les folles, a certains avantages =)
Je suis tellement contente de voir l'horaire du festival - il y a peu de conflits et je pourrai tout voir... presque.. maintenant j'ai seulement à gagner le concours BBQ rencontre avec les membres du groupe! Si seulement je pourrai les approcher, je suis convaincue qu'ils me laisseront chanter le soir avec eux! On peut quand même rêver...

Joyeuse fin de semaine, les copains!

Drumming Circles

Hi K,

Sounds like fun but I can't directly help out.

Though, I recommend you check out the Hillside Festival - http://www.hillsidefestival.ca - for am amazing festival at the end of July that has such activities and spontaneous jamming through the night. Great festival, went the last two years, amazing, can't make it this year. :( Oh well will find other fun, especially in August. Actually come to think of it....I am taking August off....ahhhhh! Any good festivals/concerts or other happenings worth checking out in South Western Ontario or elsewhere in August??

Peace,

Gathering the vibes

Anyone out there in the Toronto area? I took a bus into the city last night for a great drum jam, felt like the Tam Tam on the beach! Cherry Beach with 100 or so people, drums, waves, sand, fire, moon and a dancing, lit-up kayak is my kind of party! I used to go to Sunday drumming in High Park in the early '90s - it's what got me into playing instruments and the rest is history... This weekly jam is an evolution of those days. It alternates between Trinity Belwoods park and Cherry Beach. Next week: Trinity! (7-11pm)

Anyone else have great drumming circles where they live? Good to know about when travelling this great wide country...

Hey now

J'arrive du travail. Content d'avoir des nouvelles. Je n'écoute que des cd de la tournée dans mon auto. Je suis toujours sur le "buzz" du mois d'avril. Si tu passe dans le coin, ne te gène surtout pas pour me contacter.
Share the LOVE!
Richard.
