I can't wait to meet some of you at Rochester coming up real soon (Chris H? anyone else?). We'll be travelling by boat from Port Credit to Rochester in a perfect plan to avoid the G20 in Toronto.
I'm foregoing Ottawa Bluesfest, but several of you will be there... uncjhn, richard, grateful prof? Please report back!
Next is Artpark. Playin will be there with company, and my high school buddies from TO as well as Peterborough peeps and I will all be camping in adjoining sites for a beautiful day and night of jamming and, oh yeah, Furthur!
Finally, I would like to take you up on your offer, Chris, of a locale for the CanHead jam 2010, SOntario chapter. Sometime in late July perhaps? What say you? Let's talk dates.
Fun to have you on board. Glad you'll be representing in Ottawa... many of us live furthur south and already planned for shows in NYS. So you'll have to get a groove on for me! Tell Phil I said hi...
Hey folks just found this thread and its so cool. Been a dead head for more years than I've not been one. I live in Montreal and have never been to the Ottawa bluesfest. There has not been a dead related(bobby phil jerry) show in MTL since 1967! I'm going to Shelburne Vermont on July 5th(my birthday). This is so cool to be able to see two shows in a row. The last time I saw both Phil and Bobby was 2004!! Downloaded Chicago and Colorodo shows from the last tour. They sound amazing and John's guitar work is the closest to The Gratefuld Dead sound since 95. Can't wait and I hope to meet some of you there. It will be Amazing!!
gonna jam in the evening, gonna jam for breakfast, gonna head to the picnic area outside the venue and start a group jingle jangle... after the show gonna pitch a wang dang doodle all night long!! Better work up those callusses...
Sure you Ottawatonians go ahead be the capital and get Further. Have fun you lucky SOB's.
I don't think I'll be making this one. Like Krs I'm going to ArtPark the next night.
I better keep my eyes open (more often) for more Canadian Shows........yes please!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's pretty stacked. Rush and Iron Maiden, indeed. It's gonna be hard to try to travel from Ottawa to Buffalo in one day, though (7h plus border crossing)... I think we'll stick with our original plan of camping the night before the ArtPark show to make the day nice 'n easy. Too bad we gotta choose! And too bad Ottawa was a late addition. That's okay, GCanuck, Richard, Chris, and maybe even Poncho will represent us deadnet canheads...
Tes ados vont finalement apprécier notre groupe renommé de proche. Wow, SF et Ottawa Furthur de suite... c'est un beau cadeau de printemps!
Nous y serons. J'espère amener mes ados. A bientôt!
Ottawa has a fantastic festival each year and this year can only be magical with the Furthur show coming. Unfortunately there is no parking lot at this venue or even one close by, parking would be in a downtown lot then a long walk to the site. The transit system (bus) is the easiest way to get there.Check out bluesfest.ca for all the info. I have volunteered the last 5 years at this festival and it out does it self each year, I live in Ottawa and any info you need let me know.
Time to kiss up to the wife. If ottawa is the only gig up here I guess I'll take it. Still holdin out for a T.O gig though
Whoa, there.... Ottawa you say? Geez - Playin' & I got a jammin date that night... hmm...
