NRPS 2011 Summer Tour

Sportsmen's Tavern just announced on Facebook NRPS is back on June 30. They're in the middle of expanding. Right now they can fit around 120 in comfortably. Hopefully we'll see a little lower ticket price. I agree, it was a great show last year; quite a party. The Sportsmen's is my favorite local venue.

New Riders @ StrangeCreek Campout

In Greensfield MA May 28th. Lots of good jam bands and good vibes. Make sure to do a side-trip to the Japanese Peace Shrine in Leverett about 15 miles away.

Note: This festival used to be known as Camp Creek for the Dead semi cover band called Max Creek.

Should Not Miss

NRPS amazed at BB Kings. Second time I have seen them since the rennaissance; David is unbelievable. The sound, the band; better than ever!
Thought I spotted Rock Scully at the show, from the beginning further!!

NRPS 2010 Summer Tour

I caught them at The Sportsman's Tavern in buffalo. A tiny club, really just a small bar with a stage. The owner graciously limited the capacity to 80 tix - he could have packed 200 plus inside but it would have been really tight. Clearly he knows somebody...THESE GUYS COMPLETELY TORE THE PLACE UP. Like I said, only 80 paying patrons, and they played like we were 10,000 strong. Two 1&1/2 hour sets. I stood right next to Buddy Cage - I could have tapped him on the shoulder. They played with enthusiasm and true to their roots. It ripped. The sound was awesome. I saw Furthur the next day in Mohawk NY and I have to say that the New Rider show was musically better. Furthur had many of the elements of a good old grateful dead show - Shakedown Street, beautiful venue and weather, nice light show, but NRPS was better music!!! (OK, so I'm comparing Mohawk to an amazing show in Rochester a week earlier, but it wasn't a super show. NRPS WAS!!!) no Panama or Glendale, but everything else was ex-stuperous.

New Album

According to the New Riders' Facebook page, they are in the studio recording a new album. At least one Robert Hunter lyrical contribution, "Suite at the Mission." Hoping for more. Their last album, Where I Come From, features a number of new Hunter songs, and shows David Nelson and Buddy Cage at the top of their form--and I'm sure the new one will be at least as good.

"Bands you should't miss" - New Riders

Two fantastic shows last week in PA, this band rocks the classic NRPS songs with some Dead, Dylan, and Stones mixed in. Their new stuff is very good too, especially "Higher" -this song has New Riders of the Purple Sage written all over it!

Check them out, you will be glad ya did

I'm new here and hope to have some NRPS pictures posted soon.

And I know we'll be there soon

Tour 2007 - i doubt that

NRPS in Motril, Granada or Almeria would be great but not likely
