Dead and Company, Unofficial Tour Dates for the second leg.

Dead and Company, Unofficial Tour Dates for the second leg. Hopefully you are a believer NOW.

Dead and Company announced their summer tour yesterday. But for some reason there was no West Coast love. It looked like odd. Akin to a pop star filling in for Jerry. It had to be a mistake. Just as it appeared my early summer dates looked incomplete. A Dead band not playing their home town has to be one of the seven Deadly sins. Fear not my left coast friends, you may fall into the ocean one day. But two things are enternal "The music never stops" and "this song it ain't never gunna end." Here are my unofficial Dead and Company dates for the second leg of summer tour. If I saved you a plane ticket you can buy me a beer. "Let there be songs to fill the air."

K I M O C K's new band is hitting the road. You better go your country is counting on you.

K I M O C K is the band and seeing them better be your plan. Tour Dates are on the bottom of this post. 

How often do you get to see the best living guitar player join forces with (arguably) the bassist all others strive to emulate. Those two alone can create multiple musical orgasms. Bobby Vega has been Kimock's ace in the hole since  he permanently joined Zero after John Khan untimely death in 1995. Zero started way back in 1980 and gain a loyal fanbase including Jerry Garcia who claimed they were his favorite Bay Area band. This dynamic duo's chemistry is more connected than those poor bastards heads that exploded in the movie scanners. If only three people get that reference, I will be lucky. But missing Steve Kimock's new band would make less sense than dying over a rest area and/or beef jerky. The state of affairs has officially achieved pure lunacy. If you miss this band you will not be part of the solution. This country badly needs its population to regain sound judgement. It is not the time in history to miss this brilliant band. Kimock literally is so creative with his chops, that when it came time to name his new band K I M O C K was all he could muster. Luckily we don't dance to a band's name. On our best nights we move around the dance floor like lovers under the covers. Instinctively and with raw emotion the notes force us to dance, but only when the magic seduces us from the stage. This band will achieve that perfection and take you to that place we all chase. Joining these two virtuosos in the new band will be his son, drummer John Morgan Kimock, who currently is on the road with Mike Gordon's band and vocalist Leslie Mendelson. They will be supporting Kimock's new album "Last Danger of Frost". If you said "I am excited", I would reply......N O S H I T!  So please, do your part to slow the Romanesque behavior in this country and catch this band. You would be crazy not to.

The Dead and Company Files! The real summer dates.

The Dead and Company Files! The truth is out there. 
I want to Believe! Dead & Company tour.

Any time somebody claims that an event or information is a conspiracy. I always ask, what and who have something to gain? Since 2010, we and other sites leak Phish summer tour dates early. They always come from ab unnamed source. They have been 98% correct, maybe missing the order of two cities or usually it's a festival. One of two things happen immediately. First, a segment of the fanbase gets so angry that one would think you leaked that summer tour was cancelled. This group insults you and always calls the dates bunk or click bait. Furthermore they attack your integrity, intelligence and motives. Oddly, nobody has ever apologizes for such foul comments. They seem to disappear until the next year when they arrive to cause havoc and insult you all over again.  They must suppress their ignorance so deep they have no memory of being a loud, rude, wrong troll just last year or they might have an agenda. What does a band spend money and countless man hours on before a tour starts? The publicists gets paid to create hype, recognition and excitement. Shit, Fare Thee Well achieved full blown hysteria. Bottom line they better get the news to the fans that support the machine.
    This year I got Dead and Company dates from a trusted source. But, the more I studied them. I found details that did not add up. Lots of Indoor dates in summer, dates at venues  already booked, among other glaring inconsistencies. It did achieve the same result. Facebook blew up, Dead and Company trended on Twitter. Then to keep the train rolling Bobby popped up at a John Mayer show. How convenient! I don't believe in coincidences or those dates. Then I get an email with Dead and Company tour dates that make sense. Is it some guitar tech trading information for wax, or is it something far more devious. The truth is out there and I am nobody's fool. Here are what I believe are the real Dead and Company tour dates. But then again, I want to believe.

Grateful Music ventures into YouTube

Grateful Music ventures into YouTube. 
Over the past ten years we have evolved and grown from our days as a fan site. Our long time family members recall when our name was Phish and The Dead. Our domain name was even as was our Facebook page. Sammy and myself both were writing mainly for Relix and their websites. We fell in love with the lunacy and it was only a matter of time before we had to create our own carnival. We developed great relationships with many bands and their publicists, so it was not long until we were covering concerts, festivals and conducting interviews for Phish and The Dead. In the meantime our Facebook page grew to over twenty thousands family members. Along our journey we met other contributors and soon we had a website inside a fan club.

I hate to admit it, but it was Sammy's idea to change the name. I fear even the smallest winds of change. But a broken cloak is right twice a day and Sammy's titanic vision grew faster than Barry Bond's head on steroids. now enjoys heavy traffic and our Facebook page has grown to well over eighty five thousand music fanatics. Our staff now covers events ranging from Boonaroo to crowded dives. In the meantime we have grown to become family. Not just our contributors but our passionate fan base is every bit a part of this circus. We are all fans dancing our troubles away and trying to have a positive effect on our sacred community. 
   Our next endeavor will make it easier to connect with you and in a more personal way. It's in its Beta stage, but we can already capitalize on our live stream. We can interview artist live from the media center at festivals. March Madness bracket show. This week in Jam. The possibilities are endless and some will blow. All the funnier! We will have some live content very soon. In the meantime enjoy concerts & songs from our favorite artists. Our playlist already has hundreds of videos, shows, interviews and it's growing daily. So subscribe to Grateful Music on youtube and let's see what happens. Nobody gets more joy from Grateful Music than Sammy & I, you're the reason our sandbox is the best. Thank you, we hope to see you on the tube.
