boputnam suggested this topic, and I'm sure he'll be along soon to say more!

Here's the basic scoop:

Workingman's Ed Bay Area, authentic, rehearsed and honest. Truly great musicians.

Stu Allen - lead guitar, from JGB Band Pat Nevins - rhythm guitar, from Grapefruit Ed (predecessor and symbiotic with WE) Jeff Faust - bass James Miller - keys Paul Scannell -drums

Anyone seeking a Grateful Dead "fix" will be really glad they found these guys.

STU IS AMAZING!!!

I saw Jerry's aura above him while he was playing lead for "The Schwag" he singing the last verses of "Standing on the Moon"...brought a tear to my eye...great guitar tones, excellent vocals...He (or John from DSO) should be playing for The Dead instead of Warren (in my humble opinion)

Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul."

I just have to say this

I went to see Stu playing with Melvin (JGB) last summer and I was transcended to another place, another time. It had been raining, on and off, all day long and there werent but a few of us that just didn't really care we were there to dance and sing and remember what we once knew and we would not be denied. They played a show for us no different than if we were thousands dancing in the rain at Alpine in 89 and just when the rain hit the hardest they broke into 'Mission in the Rain' and with tears in my eyes I found myself wishing that you all were there! If you get the chance to check them out or Workingmans Ed. . . . DON'T MISS IT! Stu you rock!!!!!

Workingman's Ed playing Brent memorial

Following up on jaylif's earlier message, just got the official notice of the event. This is in Lafayette, California, where Brent was living at the time of his very untimely death:

Benefit Concert

On Friday, October 19, a special benefit concert will be held at Town Hall Theatre in remembrance of the late Brent Mydland, former Lafayette resident and keyboardist for the Grateful Dead. The music of the Grateful Dead, as well as select songs written and performed by Brent, will be highlighted in a performance by Workingman's Ed, featuring Stu Allend and Pat Nevins.

For the evening, the Town Hall lobby will be transformed into a Grateful Dead wonderland, with lights and tie-dyed drapings. A video montage/tribute will play before the concert. Guests will have a chance to bid on a silent auction, featuring Grateful Dead "schwag." The evening will include the unveiling of a portrait of Brent Mydland that will hang permanently in the theater lobby.

As you know, the Town Hall Theatre is a small, intimate setting, with only 188 seats. It is expected that this concert will sell out in record time. Whether you are a Deadhead or a friend of Town Hall Theatre just looking for a special night of music, we invite you to join us.

Tickets (at $45 per, with proceeds to benefit Town Hall Theatre) can be purchased through the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce. Call Jay Lifson at 925-284-7404 for more information. Or email Jay at jay@lafayettechamber.org.

A sincere thank you for the music you provide

No criticism here....I really enjoy Workingman's Ed and look forward to seeing them again...

Believe it if you need it ,or leave it if you dare...but it's just a Box of Rain or a ribbon for your hair...such a long,long time to be gone ...and a short time to be there!!!
