We to are looking forward to seeing this band in the midwest at the Grateful Garcia Gathering! So many gifted musicans in this band, and they all gel nicely together! Can you say, DONNA JEAN!!! =)
No one could be a better donna than donna. Her new band and her new work speaks for itself. Check it out you just might have a good time..... Time to look forward ..............
Saw DSO with Donna at the GAMH.
Sounded better than ever !
If you're looking for something real DJ&tT are it; unpretentious, great jams, lyrics, harmonies and musicianship. Looking forward to the new cd and this band receiving the recognition they have earned. See you at a show!
You really owe it to yourself as a GD afficionado to see DJ now. Lisa Mackey is a wonderful talent too and I love DSO, but Donna Jean is the real deal and she has never sounded better than she does now. Go check out one of the DJ&tT shows and see if you don't agree! Or go to the DJ&tT web site and check out the sounds page. Hope to see you at a show soon.
136 shows -- Lisa Mackey of DSO is a better Donna than Donna. I saw and heard (cringe) Donna way too many times in the 70s -- are y'all talking about the same Donna? Yikes...
The lead guitarist in DJ&tT is Jeff Mattson, oncefuzzy. These folks will all get several chances to jam together this summer at American Roots Music Fest, Gratefulfest, Bear's Picnic and who knows where else? It's gonna be a fun summer!
Hey Randi- it sounds like you are as psyched as Donna was about the album. I talked to her after seeing her in Florence at the benefit show for Scott Boyer on April 4th.
She mentioned that she wanted to sit in on more songs in the jam session, but that life was very busy and she was pretty tired. I asked about the progress on the album and the weariness that was obvious in her face melted away.
That's Bonnie Bramlett in the background on the left, Donnie Fritts, Topper Price and Donna.
Remember that? I do
I love her voice,and when she was touring/recording with the Grateful Dead it was their greatest music in their careers. I can't wait to hear her in person again.
Experienced DJ and Tricksters in Port Washington, NY a month ago and really enjoyed the show, only one set, although Mookie sat in with NRPS in the second part of the show, and Donna jumped in for a few as well as the lead guitar (Mike??). This was a really upbeat and alive gig...and the Riders with David Nelson were outstanding and jammed away.
