LOCKN’ Music Festival frankly was one of the best festivals this year.  It has been almost 10 days since the jam band mafia took over The Farm in Arrington, Virginia, yet the fans continually are blessed with more and more pictures, audio, videos, and fresh content continues to be bestowed on us fans! The standout highlights have been videos of the phenomenal Foundations of Funk, Lettuce’s JGB set which were the 2 best-received sets of the weekend and included at least 3 Dead & Company members in unannounced sit-ins.  While nerding out over all the unique collaborative content, the LOCKN’ Festival has also released a new podcast episode.

23 Years Ago The Grateful Dead & Jerry Garcia played the final show

The Grateful Dead’s final show with Jerry Garcia marked the end of an era—for music lovers and acid trippers alike.

Twenty-three years ago, on this date, July 9, 1995, The Grateful Dead performed its last show with original lead singer, founder and guitarist, Jerry Garcia. The concert took place at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois and was the second performance of a two-night stand the band held at the large stadium that also marked the end of the tour the Dead were currently on. Frontman, Jerry Garcia tragically and unexpectedly died exactly one month later of a heart attack, at 53. The remaining members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann immediately decided to disband soon after.

Dead & Company Delivers a Barn Burner in NYC & Honors Chris Charucki

On Friday night, Dead & Company brought their summer tour to Flushing Meadows, Queens to kick off a two-night stand at Citi Field (baseball stadium and home to the NY Mets Stadium).   After exclusively playing amphitheaters through the first stellar nine dates of their tour, the six-piece ensemble played their first stadium show of the tour, returning to the home of the New York Mets for the third year in a row.  The super group continued to carry on the legacy of the Grateful Dead’s music and songbook with six musicians who make up this all-star group: Bob WeirBilly KreutzmannMickey HartJohn MayerOteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti. No doubt, this weekend was a family affair in so many ways. I was lucky to get backstage passes both nights, so I got a bird’s eye view of the fact that every single one of the immediate family of each of the band members were present and provided a support system while the band kicked out two of the best shows they have played back to back in no doubt their largest stadium tour in Dead & Company history.
