Unbroken Chain @ the Spectrum

Hey Mike,
I have no idea if I was at the 1st Unbroken Chain in Philly, to be honest with you! I was living in Pa in the early '80's. from about 1980 through 1985. We used to go to the Spectrum all the time back then.(Still using back then)A bit of a blur...I do remember Barney the Dinosaur playing bass at one of those shows! Best of luck finding a ticket to Chicago!

Unbroken Chain

Pauly were you at the Spectrum when they boys did the 1st Unbroken Chain? I was at the Wharf Rat meeting between sets what a great night! Hopefully I will get to Chicago. Amen to Divine intervention, I thank God everyday.

I love you but Jesus loves you the best and I bid you goodnight..........

Sober in New Jersey..

....hello friends!! Great to see this page getting so much attention. My name's Paul (Pauly-P) and i live in Somerset Co. New Jersey. I am lucky enough to be going to all three nights in Chicago!! I'm very excited about hooking up with fellow Rats at the shows in-between sets, backstage. By the grace of God, the Fellowship and clean and sober DeadHeads, I celebrated 25 yrs this past April 15th. Talk about your "miracle"...we all are. I cant put into words how epic this July 4th weekend is going to be. Following the Grateful Dead, the Other Ones, the Dead, Furthur, Ratdog, etc for the past 37 yrs has been an amazing journey, to say the least. The friends I've made and the friends I've lost over the years gives me time to reflect. Living a clean and sober lifestyle is truly a gift from God (Your Higher Power)and there is NO WAY, I would be here today without His intervention!!

In regards to the Chicago shows, my wife and I are flying in on July 3rd and staying at the Fairfield Suites, Downtown, Rivernorth. Just gonna be site seeing during the day and dancing
all night. I would love to meet up with folks before the shows. Hell, we might even be on the same flight out of Newark!! Peace to all my friends going to the shows. It promises to be a legendary weekend!!

We all have today, make it the best!

Help a brother go to the show...

Got shut out for tickets to Chicago, don't want to pay Stub Hub prices. If any sober head has an extra they are willing to sell for face please send me a private message. BTW my last run was the Phila Spectrum Sept 1995 my sobriety date is 9/15/95. Peace & love to all.

The good Lord willing, if he says I may.........

checking in

Not gonna make Chicago, but will be at both Levi's shows...feeling lots of emotion as I begin the all too familiar process of getting ready for shows..especially with all the drama with these being the absolute last shows with all the remaining members of the band. I am also extremely excited just to see everyone, to be able to look out at a sea of deadheads, all dancing and singing along with the music we know like we know our own name...
I know we all miss Jerry so much...he passed on my birthday and his passing forever changed how I 'celebrate' that day...I totally believe that his spirit will be there with us as we conjure up that X factor, the good lord willing..I'll be looking for the WR table!!!

Looking to hook up with some Wharf Rats in Santa Clara

Coming all the way from Florida to see The Dead for the last time. Looking to find and hang out with all the Wharf Rats. Been a "rat" for over 20 years and am psyched to see the boys and share some fellowship. PM me if you'll be at the show!
