Zen Again!

Hi Dave!

Just keeping it fresh in our collective minds that there will be a Zen Again reunion show
Friday, December 10th @ the Red Dog Tavern in Peterborough, Ontario.

This is a Dead-inspired band (read: Dead tunes + originals) that got the local Peterborough scene dancing in the late '90s and early '00s. You are welcome to join us!

Hello/ Eyes

Thanks for sharing your work, Courtenay. I've admired the '81 Greek backdrop as well. It's nice to put a face to the art. Glad you're contributing to the current tour. Where are you based now?

As for you other Canucks, how are you all doing? It's good to hear from you, Chris. I'm glad things are going in the right direction. Things in Peterborough are really good. School is underway and the kiddos and I have set the stage for a great year to unfold. It's going to be another good year for music, too. I'm in the middle of preparing for a reunion show of my first band, Zen Again, a GDead-inspired group. We're playing on Friday, Dec 10th here in Ptbo if any of you wanna come check it out. Then I'm going to ring in the New Year by going on a JamCruise adventure with Bobby, Mickey, Billy & many more amazing artists in January. I know a couple other Canadians who will be on board and we will do our best to represent.

Peace to all in the North country (you too, SOntario =).

whoa, hi Courtenay!

That backdrop is pretty awesome!

I'm still a big fan of the Greek '81 backdrop in particular too.

hey, hey, hey

long time no speak you guys....It has been a long and challenging year for me, many ups and downs and lots of changes. I have come through them and am looking forward to a new and prosperous year ahead. The music has stayed with me all this time and is always a special comforting friend in times of need.

Dusting off the old backpack for the upcoming shows in Chicago, it will be and old school type of journey taking the bus and staying in a hostel with some others. I am very excited. Chicago is a great town and 2 nights at the University of Illnois are just gonna rock !!!

Hope you all are doing well and hope to meet and see more of you soon. Take care my friends :)

Hey Peggy-O

Thanks for the invite... not sure if you're aware that Canada is not overseas... we have the same time zones as the U.S. =)

To all our deadhead community to the Great North...

I wanted to let you all know that we are hosting a special show on Deadvids.com on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010, from 9:00-11:30pm/ET called My First Grateful Dead Show: International Edition.

Each month, Deadvids.com hosts a new series called My First Grateful Dead Show. I host the show and each month a member guest hosts with me and we listen to their very first Grateful Dead show that they attended, and I interview them with 20 questions. During the interview, others that are present can ask additional questions of the guest host. We've been doing this show since late July 2010, and it's been catching on as people get to understand what it's about. We've found it really interesting and inspiring to hear each person's unique journey into this community and how it has impacted their lives.

So far, it's always been an American/US-based deadhead that is my guest host, but next month we will have our first "international" guest host - a deadhead from overseas. I can't tell you who, or what show (we try to keep those under wraps until show time), but I would like to invite all of you, US-based and those living outside the US, to please join us! FYI, our guest host will have to be up into the wee hours of their morning to do this show, so perhaps you guys overseas can make a party of it and get together and listen/participate in the discussion that evening, make an all-nighter of it...

If you cannot make it, we post an archive on Deadvids.com of all the past shows so folks can see whose show it was and the link to archive.org for that show.

You are all most welcome! Please stop by the Deadvids chat room to fully participate in the interview discussion. For more information, please check out info on the next show here:
http://gdvodcast.ning.com/events/my-first-grateful-dead-show-5

And info on past show archives here:

Hope to see you all on November 17th! Tell your friends... ;)
