    Hey Now fella Northern headz!!!! I hail from and returned to the beautiful city of Montreal. It served as a great launching point for many Northern (Hamilton) and Northeastern (Albany Boston Buffalo) launching point for 10 known illustrious shows starting on 3.24.91 at the ripe age of 15 and sadly ending on 6.15.95. How I miss those days, everyday! But thank goodness for the internet and it’s endless golden nuggets of bliss!!! I had to take out an ad in the back of relix to trade tapes and now have thousands of hours of sbds and YouTube to keep me content, which I always have been! My intake is just more than ever. Of some things not others.... one love

    Pow wows
    I've been to several of them. I was 10 and 12 years old, though. Then in '78 I had a girlfriend & roomie who was 100% Yankton Sioux. She told me some things, like there are other ceremonies that r hidden from the tourists. There are sweat lodges used for spiritual and physical healing & cleansing.There are peyote ceremonies as well. However, outsiders are not welcome. You must be a believer. If you wish to know more, read Black Elk Speaks, a book that records his visions and dreams. Mainly just be respectful. Feel the beat of the drummers (called 49ers, something to do with 1849..maybe the black hills gold?) And she told me never take her to a Cheyenne pow wow because the Sioux and Cheyenne don't get along too well. Since I'm no expert I can't give any recommendations. She was a deadhead like me, but it's not polite to speak of the dead in most Sioux Nations. So until we go to solve the great mystery, stay high and smile, smile, smile!

    Greetings From Ottawa
    This forum seems a little dead (no pun intended) last post was may 2016. Just wanted to raise my freak flag. Im a lifelong deadhead, guitarist, bass player and turntablist and as far as I can tell the last hippy in the city of Ottawa. I make some sick dead turntable mixes. Just sayin.

Je demeure à Montréal depuis 35 ans déjà. Je travaille à la Place des Arts (un complexe de 5 salles de spectacle) comme technicien de scène spécialisé en éclairage. Je suis entre autre chef-électrien en second à l'Opéra de MTL.J'espère qu'on pourra échanger des commentaires sur nos spectacles respectifs. A bientôt. Richard.

C'est drôle Richard, car mon frère est chanteur d'Opéra et il travaillait avec l'atelier de l'Opéra de Mtl il y a 3 ans. Il a chanté plusieurs fois à la Place des Arts, plus récemment dans "Pearl Fishers" - son nom est Phillip Addis, baritone. Sa femme, Emily Hamper, accompagne les chanteurs au piano. Maintenant il voyage à qqpart de nouveau chaque mois, ce qui est un défi avec un enfant d'un an. J'aime ta carrière en éclairage. Je suis musicienne aussi, mais de la musique rock/reggae/funk, etc...

Bonsoir Kirsten, j'ai lu sur "Dancin'" que tu as de très bonnes informations pour avoir beaucoup de plaisir cette fin-de-semaine à NY. Mon épouse Marjelaine et moi seront là aussi. Au plaisir de se rencontrer. Je te souhaite un miracle pour Uniondale. Nous en souhaitons un pour MSG. D'ici ce temps-là, essaie de dormir! ; )

Crystal Journey has arrived in the United States for a 14 city tour along with seeing the Grateful "The" Dead 7 times in NY, NJ, DC, NC and VA. It was a very smooth and peaceful border crossing, a BIG smile from the pretty woman in the booth asking where we were going? to see the Grateful Dead I yelled with excitement. Photos and news will be updated as I have internet access. All Crystal Journey dates are on the performances page.

Well,Buffalo April 21st, 2009 - I'll try to be brief. Wow! The show/my head space was perfect. I walked out of the hotel room only to be passed by a lovely lady with a basket full of brownies and cookies. Needless to say I had a great trip at the show. Incredible performace. So many highlights. Met many good people had many concerns washed away had many high moments thoughout the concert. Perhaps the best for me was sitting down overcome with joy and laughter through Eyes of the World while the entire arena took off and headed into space. Needless to say that does not happen at every concert I have ever been to. Anyway, the boys really lifted the spirit - they do that so well don't they. Anyway, already looking forward to next year's show (fingers crossed). Peace, Playing in the Tower with Eyes on Fire in El Paso with a Cat P.S. Richard I took only 2 pics but do have some video, if I can find the time I'll try to post some. Hope you had a great show too! P.P.S. many of the performances from the buffalo show are on you tube.

Had a great time as well. I met lots of Canadian Heads but not you guys, mabey next time. We had 6th row center and danced the whole night. Super easy border crossing at Fort Erie. Empty Tim Horton cups on board are never questioned. Its like a passport and a good spot for goodies !!!! hahahahah Later ...Chris

Salut Richard... hi everyone, well I'm still trying to come down from the wonderful adventure high - NYC and a Nassau 2nd set bonus after coming off the road 11h - MSG was something to behold... I'm happy to have shared it with the incredibly loud grooving crowd. A real treat. Some advice: when staying in NYC, the Chelsea Hotel is a must for any intrepid traveler. Richard: Je regrette de te manquer- c'est difficile de faire tout ce qu'on veut dans un groupe de 5. J'ai oublié comment ça traîne! Cependant, j'imagine que vous avez eu un weekend formidable. Il faudra se rencontrer un de ces jours. Rends-tu à Rothbury? For all you Can-heads - I hope you can make it down to Rothbury in Michigan for the 4th of July - we're gonna camp and jam our brains out.. Love, K

C'était effectivement formidable. Nous avons rencontré Monsieur Miracle à l'heure dite à Nassau. Le spectacle était très bon, malgré la fatigue d'une longue journée commencée à 5 heures du matin. Après une bonne nuit de sommeil, nous avons passé la journée à se promener à Union square, Canal Street et Little Italy avant de "participer" à un excellent spectacle le soir venu. ENCORE!J'espère que tu continueras de donner de tes nouvelles. A la prochaine, Richard.

Well K and others going to Rothbury, Playing in the Tower with Eyes on Fire in El Paso with a Cat, will not be joining in the festivities at Rothbury this year (and what a line-up), anyway it promises to be amazing, I would have loved to be there to hear and see Dylan play with the Dead (undoubtedly you will be treated to that). I would have loved to see the Yonder Mountain String Band, The Cheese String Incident, Gov't Mule and Willie Nelson and his band too, oh well we can't win em' all! I look forward (kind of) to reading the highlights at this forum....... :( Sincerely, Playin'

I don't know about you guys, but I'm still BUZZING from the shows I saw in April - they really kicked off a killer spring season for me - breaking from the routine and opening up many new possibilities. The magic is still with me and the friends I've met this spring are really solid. I'd like to thank you all in this forum for being present, kind and sparklingly-fun. I really hope to meet you someday soon. Lake Huron and Montreal aren't really that far away.... May the magic and power of this springtime bring renewed energy to all your adventures. Love, K
