Joe Craven‘s new CD is amazing! Garcia Songbook takes a diverse set of songs composed or covered by Jerry and completely reinvents them. I am on tour and listening to it every day. Keeps getting better. You’ll be hearing more of it in the weeks to come.

Support for the Grateful Dead Hour comes this week from:

Dead and Company – Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, John Mayer, Jeff Chimenti and Oteil Burbridge – on tour from May 30 through July 14. Complete details and ticketing at deadandcompany.com. That’s Dead and Company, on tour in June and July.

The Capitol Theatre and Garcia’s in Port Chester, New York. Comedian Hannibal Buress brings laughs to The Cap on Thursday, May 17. And on Friday, May 18, Southern-rockers Blackberry Smoke will deliver a blistering hot show at The Cap. Every Wednesday is Grateful Dead night at Garcia’s. Events, information, and ticketing at thecapitoltheatre.com.

Dead & Company summer tour ticket giveaway!

I’ve got two pairs for each show on the upcoming tour. We’re gonna offer them one show at a time. Note: this is admission only. Just a pair of tickets. You have to get yourself to the show and all that.

Next show is Saturday, June 9 at the Coastal Credit Union Music Park in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Send email to deadco@well.com with the show date in the Subject line and your name, address, and phone number in the body of the message. We’ll pick our winners at random in a couple of days, and then I’ll announce the next giveaway. I have the tickets, and will mail them out well in advance of the show.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Posting a reply here on the blog does not get you entered in the contest.

And PLEASE NOTE: We’re doing one show at a time, in chronological order. Entries for other shows will be discarded.
