Just announced, so  Deadheads, get your 3X5 cards ready, and decorate some envelopes!
(we hear they LOVE Deadheadland themed envelopes!!!)

Phil Lesh is an amazing talent, and what a joy to have him playing his bass better than ever lately! A new groove was brewing, as his energy and love for playing live Grateful Dead was refreshed a little over a year ago when Phil and a reformed Dead played several Obama campaign benefits and then in January 2oo9  The Dead played at the Presidential Inauguration !
