About two ago I had the privilege of seeing the one last remaining living member of the original Grateful Dead I had yet to see perform live --- Tom Constanten.
He played with what I'll call a supergroup, in a small venue in Brooklyn NY, not crowded and PLENTY of kind dance space. Played the album Live Dead and then some.......
Lately it's occurred to me.....WALSTIB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have seen Donna Jean a few times, the last time with DSO where I was mesmerized when she was doing her thing during a very hot playing the band, sharing the stage with Linda Mackey of DSO, a sensation in her own right. And I am a proud Donna Lover...although I understand where the haters are coming from
The only members I've never seen are Pigpen and Keith .. makes me feel blessed and grateful...renews my love of the scene.
If you EVERY have a chance to see this lineup, they are off the charts full of amazing talent.

The skilled lineup features early Grateful Dead pianist Tom Constanten, who was the keyboard player for all of the recorded performances on Live/Dead, as well as Rat Dog/The Other Ones lead guitarist Mark Karan, Jefferson Starship/David Crosby Band guitarist Slick Aguilar, and bassist Robin Sylvester. JGB’s Pete Lavezzoli will handle drum duties for the first week of the tour (5/3 – 5/10) while Rat Dog/Electric Beethoven drummer Jay Lane will take over for the tour’s final run (5/12-5/16).
