  1. I wonder if the recent question of lack of shows in Canada triggered a computer to send this message. Maybe we should keep her in mind when DSO does a show in Churchill, North West Territory.
  2. Scarlet, Welcome to this friendly place. Interesting that your map placement shows "Jersy", off the coast of France, other than the "New Jersy" Peace and Love, Doc
  3. Scarlet Begonias might be her name as well as in her hair
  4. Last night with C&K and Sue was another good show...last of my little run of three shows. I danced most of show even though I usually don t have the energy that I did years ago...maybe the friends next to me took a few years off my life and brought back that energy and fun and spark in my ❤️ heart Peace and Love Doc
  5. Wonderful show with a C & K and Sue...interesting venue with lots of outside space along with tents and a large fire pit. I hope to revisit this place for other shows. " Can't find my way home...." was my favorite of the evening. Peace and Love, Doc
  6. Now that's the way it should be. The advertised cost ought to be the actual cost. There should not be extra fees added on for "the right to buy a ticket", "delivery charge", "print it charge" , "walk throgh the venue's door charge", "listen to the music charge", "extra dancing charge" " and now this extra insurance charge to convince you that the ticket we just sold you is not a fake ticket. One late night Rudd asked me how much was the ticket the first time I saw the Grateful Dead. I had to think a bit to remember but told him it was free !...There was no ticket because it was a free show in the Park. Peace and Love, Doc
  7. "Stella Blue" by Holly Bowling on a big grand piano just about ten feet in front of me last night in a small "City Winery" venue. That young lady amaizes me how she can play.
  8. That's a good phrase. I like it. Should immortalize the gratest touring fan of all time. Ct Jon, welcome to the DSO family. Peace and Love, Doc
  9. I'm glad someone else noticed Jerry. They named all the other stars that were shown in that sequence but not Jerry. I wonder if there was a behind the sceans disagreement among the producers wether to include Jerry or not and the photo and not saying his name was a compromise. The show is an excellent history as well as entertainment. The songs and music bring back memories from many years ago such as being at the old Ryman Auditorium for the Grand Old Opry show in the mid 1950's. If you haven't seen the first two chapters, I recomend you find the time to watch. If you pay attention you will see links to Gratefull Dead music and catch lines in songs that are reflected by our current bands....sometimes the same song and sometimes a twist on the same old story. Peace and Love, Doc
  10. I was there also and was moved to tears. I latter wrote a short story about that night and first time meeting John who after sound check backstage I comforted with a hug to help take away his pain.
  11. Lisa was an orginal founder of DSO along with John K, Scott, Kelvin, maybe Koritz, and Mike Maraat
  12. DSO just did one of the most beautiful Stella Blue I've ever heard.....Friday night Boulder
  13. Matt Rynolds, Jun 6, 2017 ...just few days after his own put together band played at the Jubliee
  14. Glenn “ Chub” Carrier (10/21/51-2/1/04) DSO monitor technician passed away in the hospital......DSO show at Banana Joe's Columbia SC was dedicated to Chubby on 2/2/04
  15. For all of you on the road to Red Rocks...drive safe and keep the windows down so the dogs can enjoy the ride..
