Hey now, brothers and sisters! The Mayor of Deadheadland has asked me to share some low-radar Rhythm Devil kind, that led up to Red Rocks.

Bill Kreutzmann, the new drummer for swamp rock king Papa Mali, played the Telluride Cajun Festival on Friday…


with opening act Promise of the Real–led by Lukas Nelson, son of Willie.

 Now…word on the street leading up to the show was that Papa was about to unveil a brand new Robert Hunter joint…
as l was unfamiliar with the rest of the originals in his set, l didn’t catch it.
The action was loud and long…with plenty of Dead material thrown in.
Rider, GDTRFB, Bertha, and an absolutely off the chain Lovelight were all hot and funky and sweaty.

By the way…this all happened in the middle of the street. Just another “Only in Telluride” kind of day!
