    Jubilee 5/25/18

    Any late year selection would be greatly enhanced by the band. Easy Answers, Childhood's End, Samba, all would benefit. Praise DSO.

    My first dead$co show

    Respects to Bob for still being out there, he has earned it and created volumes of live music in many forms over the years. Could he be feeling some of the pressure Jerry felt to keep mouths fed? If you attend a Dead and Co. concert, prepare for disappointment in one way or another and you might have a decent time. Praise DSO.

    Jubilee Debriefing

    After 48 hours to process the events of Dark Star Jubilee, I believe I've got a handle on it. As a Jubilee rook, it had a tough act to follow in my head having done several NLQP through the years, which is an amazing piece of land to camp and dance. The Jubilee far exceeded my expectations and living in that reality for three days is truly bliss. The combination of friendly, happy people, from staff to attendees, and a spectrum of talented musicians creates an eden on earth. My homebase in VIP was a eight minute walk to the stage, 10 minutes to my friends in General RV. Access to showers and daily coffee was worth the upgrade to VIP in my opinion. I rode solo this Jubilee and met so many good people during the weekend. Rob, Rodney, and Greg from Columbus were right next to my site and we talked all weekend. I fulfilled a goal meeting Rude and it was totally organic, we were walking down to the stage at the same time. The circus is in town. Hung with old friends, MC and crew, Scott, sudds94, met new friends, Poetry Girl, Carly and Michelle from Buffalo. I spoke with dozens of others about our shared experience, Jubilee gives us all something in common, what a great conversation starter. Of course the heart of the Jubilee is the music. Being able to hear the music from basically any location on the grounds keeps you engaged all day. The non-DSO lineup impressed. Any band including the talented Rob B. was worth the walk to the stage. Seeing Melvin after all these years was a treat. Holly Bowling had a great take. Infamous Stringdusters killed a JackStraw. Getting the point? Any we have not even touched on the three well executed shows delivered by DSO. The recreation on Friday I'm sure was better than the original. After the afternoon deluge, the Saturday original was pure magic start to finish. The energy for the Sunday original was off the charts, especially after the boys gave us a Jerry show to warm up for a Dead show. This band of talented musicians continues to push the material to higher levels. Thank you DSO for three glorious days. Praise DSO.
