Well, I'll be! We're kicking off the year with some big news in conjunction with our brethren Dead & Company. Over the next two months, we'll be truckin' along with the Dead & Company Digital Concert Series featuring all 19 complete shows from the group’s Fall/Winter 2017-18 tour. The series begins today with the release of all three of the original “Playing In The Sand” shows that were recorded February 15, 17, and 18, 2018, in advance of the second annual “Playing In The Sand” all-inclusive concert vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico next weekend.
