Bill Kreutzmann’s new trio

I haven’t talked to Bill to confirm this yet, but I am told they’re calling it THREE. It’s Bill Kreutzmann on drums, Oteil Burbridge on bass, and Scott Murawski on guitar. More news when I get it.

This just in from my favorite festival:

“We are so excited we can hardly contain ourselves! As longtime Grateful Dead fans, bringing the newly-formed Bill Kreutzmann Trio to you at MagnoliaFest 2008 is beyond exciting! And when we discovered one of his partners in the trio is none other then our very own festival favorite Oteil Burbridge, that made it even more perfect for Magfest! Check out the the website of 3rd trio member, Scott Murawski (Max Creek) for some incredible live BKT music. The music is from one of their first shows, and you just know that come October it will be peaking underneath the live oaks at the Suwannee.”

MagnoliaFest is October 23-26, 2008 at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida, just a few miles south of the Georgia line. Other cool stuff is in the works for this year’s fall favorite, too.

    Saw the June 6th show at Toad’s , incredable, yet not what I expected. Something like if you combined a tight jazz trio & the group Cream in a blender, then decided to play Grateful Dead songs. The only non-dead songs were Louisiana Sun (Max Creek) and a solo tune by Oteil (could be from that new ABB album). I loved the big jams between the songs, they really took some of the tunes to places they’ve never been. This was the first time I’ve seen Billy play solo since Go Ahead in October 1986, he hasn’t slowed a bit. The show ran from 9:30pm to 1:30am, with a short break in the middle.
    What a night, Patrick
