What a grate night! The so-hot weather didn't stop everybody to dance their soul out. I was so happy to be there with all the family. My twin daugthers will remember this show forever. They sang and dance all the way. I'm proud we made it all together.
They started late and I was worried of the 11 hres curfew. and what they did? One super long set with (almost) no break. Bob and Phil leaded the band in a night of what sound to me a gratest hits show. A la GOGD manner.
Hope the problems they had at the border won't stop them to come back around.
Next time Montréal?
Enjoy the show on archive.org, Take care, Richard.

Wow.....what a show they had last night the guys are playin' some amazing music. One long set right through till the end in 95 degree heat and crazy humidity. Nothin' can stop these guys from delivering the music that drives the bus......Wow. When they came to the first notes of Bertha it was pure delight that washed over the crowd then followed by a long jammin' Truckin'. When Wharf Rat started we knew we were in for a treat as John played his heart out and the emotions that waved through the crowd was truly movin' then a playful I Fought The Law to snap us back.
I'm sure it was really unusal for them to be playin' away from the usual community that they see in front every night, I'm not sure how many made the trek across the border but i'd say only a hand full. I bet that the guys could tell this was going to be a one time thing where they would stray off the beaten path and it came across in the music. What actually made the show for me was the fact that they came to me....being a Canadian it is standard to go seek the band where ever they go now they were coming to my HOME......A grate night of music, freinds and trips.......makes me want sell the house and buy a bus.

Forever Grateful

While things (purchases) don't normally bring me much pleasure..

...I just bought a little clip-on L.E.D. light for my home-made song book - I can now read it while around a campfire!!! :) Last weekend I practically climbed into the fire in an attempt to read it.

Heading out towards the ArtPark show tomorrow......will attempt to send highlights next week.

Peace,

Playin'

Dead heads in southern ontario?

Hello everyone!

I'm a squeaky new Dead head, just went to my first show, Furthur in Rochester, it was INCREDIBLE, I'm also hoping to go to the one in Lewiston next week but the tickets are sold out. :( If ANYONE has a ticket they would be willing to sell me I would be eternally grateful, I cannot get enough of the scene! Feels like home.

That said, if anyone is out there in my area, hit me up! I'd love to meet some more heads, doesn't seem like there are too many around these parts! My email is maritalinde@gmail.com or you can PM me. Hope to hear from you!

Namaste :)

O Canada!

Right back atcha, Bill. How's beautiful Sudbury? Any warmer than here in Peterborough? It's a little chilly today, but looking like good weather for picnics, fireworks and my buddies, the Weber Brothers will be playing at our concert bandshell tonight. Yay for holidays!

gr8tfulal: We CanHeads will be at ArtPark in droves. If you get to the concert site early, look for a Canadian flag and jamming, probably by a picnic shelter. A bunch of us are camping at Four Mile Creek State Park the night before and night of the show. If you need a place to stay, there are still many good spots, some adjacent to ours... whaddya say? If you're interested I can send you a pm.

Cheers,
K

Rochester!

Wow what a show! Glad all our Canadien brothers and sisters had such a good time. Highland Bowl is such a great little place for a show, and I'm so glad our local Deadhead community turned out in force to support Furthur. Just got back from the Adirondacks, now back to work for a few days then off to Artpark next Thursday. Krs10..sorry we missed you at the bowl, hopefully we can hook up in Buffalo! My oldest son is turning 15 the day of the show, and is going to his first Dead-family show at Artpark. God bless the Grateful Dead!!
