Push On Til The Day:

Grateful Dead ~ 06/23/74 ~ Miami, FL

With all the great music making going on these days, it’s easy to forget about the history of great music over the past half century. Countless musician’s creativity, hard work, and inspiration have laid the foundation for today’s musical explorers – providing the musical framework and vocabulary for new jams and grooves. In the spirit of looking back at some of those musical pioneers, let’s groove on a classic Dead show from the summer of 1974.

The Dead in the Summer of 74'

This show is one of the band’s final before their few-year hiatus that began later in the year. The show features the Dead playing their famous ‘Wall of Sound’ speaker rig and the sound is just perfect – a clear and rich mix of everyone. Check out a solid audience recording stream/download below! The band busts out ‘Let It Rock’ for the only time ever, and Phil and Ned Lagin debut their electronic music composition ‘Seastones’ between sets. This show is a gem and a must-have for any true Deadhead’s collection.

Bonnaroo Lineup Announced!

The Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival announced its 2010 lineup today via a continually updated animation on the festival’s MySpace page. A new artist was announced every six minutes between 12 Noon and 9 PM… This novel, yet extremely drawn out announcement process was not well received by the online community.

Bonnaroo MySpace Page - 2/9 9PM

This year’s biggest names are Jay-Z, DMB, Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, The Flaming Lips with Stardeath and White Dwarfs performing “Dark Side of the Moon”, and Weezer. This is probably the festival’s least jam-influenced set of headliners to date, but the festival still offers a few solid jamband staples, including Les Claypool, The Disco Biscuits,  and Lotus. Overall, this lineup won’t get me to Tennessee this summer, but to each his own. Bonnaroo will announce a number of additional artists in the coming months including some big names, so stay tuned!

Trey Anastasio Band (Classic TAB) Tour Preview

The first Phish-related action of the year kicks of tomorrow as Trey Anastasio takes his so-called ‘Classic TAB’ band out on tour for a month of shows across the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast. As you may remember, Trey re-united the original 4-piece Trey Anastasio Band (Trey, Russ Lawton (Drums), Tony Markellis (Bass), and Ray Paczkowski (Keys)) in the Fall 0f 2008 for an 8-show run. This time around, Trey will add to the 4-man core with a tight 3-piece horn section featuring Russell Remington (Tenor Sax/Flute), Jennifer Hartswick (Trumpet) and newcomer Natalie Cressman (Trombone), who replaces her father, Jeff Cressman.

TAB - 10/18/08

This highly anticipated tour is sure to feature material from throughout Trey’s solo career, Trey Band/Phish classics like ‘Sand’,’First Tube’, ‘Gotta Jibboo’, and ‘Backwards Down The Number Line’, as well as a wide selection of choice covers. Check out this Hidden Track article that takes a look at some classic Trey tunes that may be brought out on this tour.
