Worth the Trip

Back in 1983 I was living in Madison, Wisconsin. One night, a few weeks before this run of benefit shows, I ordered a pizza, and the delivery guy noticed I was wearing a Grateful Dead T-shirt. We struck up a conversation, and he told me he heard that mail order tickets for shows just about anywhere would now be available. A few weeks later I had tickets in hand for this night. After a two and a half day bus ride there I was, on Market Street in front of the Warfield Theater. As I entered, I suspected my seat (there was theater seating on the floor back then) was likely somewhere in the back, but the usher kept walking me further, and further up towards the front. Imagine my surprise when I ended up in the third row, so close I felt as though I could reach out and touch the band. I had one hell of a time at this show. Thanks to the band, and everyone at GD Tickets for setting up the mail order service, and giving me a great experience I'll never forget!

First show as a Grateful Dead employee...

I had been hired in early February to help set up and run a mail order ticket sales office for Grateful Dead Productions. My cousin by marriage, Eddie Washington, had volunteered for the job and remembered that I had worked at BASS tickets (specifically on the mail order for the 15 night run at The Warfield) and called me up to ask if I wanted a "part-time job that will only last about six weeks." I had been unemployed for the previous six months and said, "hell yes! What is it?" He told me and I was thrilled...just a few months earlier I had to sit outside the second Frost Amphitheatre show because I couldn't get a ticket!

It was the start of a very long strang and wonderful working experience!

Thank you, and Stay In Touch!

I was at three Warfield shows at some point

Maybe I was at these shows, were they acoustic?
