Good music...dancing space....old FRIENDS all around....cold beer brewed right next door.... new FRIENDs to meet....friendly trees overhead....children running under your feet...parking only a short walk.....good food vendors....weather that has been beautiful almost every year....sometimes a rainbow in the light mist...and the best band in the land,,,DSO

Last year - Michael and I had our picture made with Sam Cutler. Sam said to me “I wanna hold your hand” in his Australian accent. It was so Beatles of him- I still crack up over it when it comes to mind.

Dso is a business. Days not playing means no revenue but spending money at hotels and days away from family. Tour like crazy for 3 weeks then get back home for 3. Deadco had like 25 shows in 45 days. That’s an extra 10 days of hotels which costs lots of money and more days from the family. Dso does it how you should do it on tour. Knock em out.

and we got an autographed copy of his book, "You Can't Always Get What You Want" about his years as tour manager for the Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead. It's the most interesting book I've ever read about the life behind the tours of Rock and Roll bands. I highly recommend the book.

 

"....Australian accent...."  Sam now lives in Australia but he is originally from England.

 

Peace and Love, Michael

One year in Portland ME I got told I couldn’t bring my backpack into the show. Too big of bag. They have a pretty strict rule and bag check system at the venue on the pier. I said I knew the people who did merch for DSO. They left and I was expecting Ellie to pop up and say she would look after my bag but instead Sam Cutler comes walking up. I get a little nervous. I don’t know this guy. At first, he jokingly says I don’t know this guy. Then says he comes to all the shows. His bag is okay.

Pop a keg - beer and kombucha on tap- and there have been  great food trucks the past four years. One year the pizza place was called “Cheesus Saves”. A life changing moment as that pizza hit my mouth for sure!
