Hey Dutch Jack straw.
Haven’t had a chance to check them out yet, as they havent done shows. I do though know that some of the musicians play in Utrecht weekly.
But hey, Billy Strings in December is a wonderful alternative this year!!! Or check out Dark star orchestra touring europe this summer/fall

Not very known in the Netherlands I found out. I guess NL has embraced electronic music too much.
But there are some heads here for sure. There is even a cover band called Deadly Grateful. Havent been able to check them out as they dont play often… check out on facebook.
Funny thing 8s that H&M was selling GD shirts,mand see some youngster walking around with shirts and have no idea what it is..
I am a dutchie and have sen my share of shows, and still after 35 years cant get enough

Hey, I just moved from Los Angeles to Barcelona. Live music photographer in the Dead scene and would love to know what the Dead scene in Spain looks like. Seeking members of our tribe here. Would love to find out how big an audience there is here for bands from the U.S. to come over as well. Will get a sense when DSO comes, even though they are not playing Spain or Catalunya. Curious about the European turnout for tribute bands and those musicians carrying on the Garcia/Dead legacy.

Hi everyone. I've been in love with the music and ethos of the Grateful Dead since I was 14 in 1978. Everyone my age in England went punk but it did nothing for me. My cousin had already turned me on and when all the heads got their hair cut, sold their records and pretended to be 'new wave', I bought all their records for no money! The Dead, Allman Brothers, Airplane, Quicksilver everything. I learned to play the guitar. Now I'm pushing 60 and still playing in bar-bands but in France for the last decade. I wonder if there are any other Deadheads around here, especially musicians...

Hi everyone! I just moved to Den Haag from Spain and I want to know how's the Grateful Dead community doing in this country. Since the Dead played here a few times my guess is that there should be some deadheads out there, and even second or third generation deadheads...
Are there any places where they would play any GD music or where they would program anything like that? A coffeeshop or a pub, maybe...
Also, I play bass and I'm missing terribly the Grateful Dead cover band I played with back in Madrid. Damn! It was fun!!! I'm willing to start another one in Nederlands if it comes to that.

Hey now!! Any ideas on where our "Grateful Dead" Band might could play in Europe. We are looking at Germany, Switzerland, England, and wherever there is a cool venue with folks who enjoy quality Jam Band faire. We play a lot of stuff with over 100 songs worked up. I welcome any and all suggestions. I am planning on coming over next spring to scout but if the right situation were to present itself we will make it happen.
The best way to reach us is at our email which is firstname.lastname@example.org
Our band's name is: "Drifter and The Jam Cooperative A Grateful Dead Experience"
We have a Facebook page. Just search our name.

Great to learn there are other Heads in Belgium. I’m hoping to also find some in france.
I got on the bus at Madison Square Garden, NY in March 1981 and saw 150+ Dead shows (and dozens of JGB shows) before Jerry passed. I’ve been living in Brussels since Jan 2019 working in the chocolate industry. Prior to that I spent a few years in Paris (where I still spend a lot of time when there are no pandemics) and 8 years in Latin America - I’ve Been All Around This World.
If anyone has suggestions for bands to check out please let me know.
