Highdroponics, the guy you say sounds like Jerry is Stu Allen, and actually thats his real natural voice! I'm glad you had a blow mind experience!!!
yeah i went last night from 10:30 - 12:45, Melvin & JGB, were playing, dont know too much about them other than that they used to be the Jerry Garcia Band and the singer sounds a lot like jerry, either that or i was just blown outta my mind, because i was....i dunno but they played an AMAZING Dear Prudence at the end. dunno if im going back tonight, but tomorrow im gonna be there for sure all day.
anyway...so Gans? how would i look up this person?
Coolio! Did you go? Are you going back? Go look up Gans and say hi for me! (I wish I could be there!!)
well theres an American Roots Music Festival not even 1/4 mile from my house today, tomorrow, and the next day, about 23 bands are supposed to be there along with around 2 - 3 thousand fans...this will be my first festival :D
its funny cuz i been fishing across the river from this guys house for the past year and have noticed him playing some Dead and wanted to go up to his door and ask him if he knew anything about any festivals around the area, now hes just cleared out the woods and had one himself.
Any Europeans here on the forum?
Than please look at
US Festivals (Devore,CA) in 1982 and 1983 (9/5/82 my 1st Dead show)
This doesnt fit into a "festival" becasue it was for the Loma Prieta earthquake, but the gathering of artists for "Earthquake Relief" (Cow Palace) - Eddie Money,SMB, and Neil Yong were my favorites.
High Sierra Music festival 1996 and saw SCI,MMW,Hypnotic Clambake,Akoustic Hookah for the 1st time...Loved them!!
1997s Health&Harmony festival (Santa Rosa, CA) Zero (God that was a fun short set!)
also 97 Cazadero VFD benift - Zero (again a great set on the solstice."Sun Sun Sun")
There are honorable mentions of The day(s) on the green 1974,Calfest 1978, Amesty Int. 1986....
EYES25By far The Gathering of the vibes
