Jam – 2011-06-01 – Carroll’s

Core-4 is what was on tap for Deadstein on this hot first day of June.  We all think about how hot the world is getting today in the 21st century and this June 1 made you feel that way.  The great thing about our Grateful Dead experiences is that communal bond we have from focusing on one thing, the Grateful Dead.  In this instance, I am referencing Jerry Garcia, not the Grateful Dead, but to all intents and purposes, well you know where I am going with this.  Scott, Rich and I all attended the 6-1-83 Garband show at the Roseland Ballroom and the one thing we all remember is how hot of a night that night was.  So when we think it is so hot today, we all had the ability to remember so vividly how hot the temperature was on this day in 1983, 28 years ago.

That Roseland show was hot so we had to commemorate it by playing the 11 song setlist.  Only having Core-4 in the room provided the opportunity to really dig into some Jerry Garcia Band music.  While not seemingly as comfortable as previous weeks dedicated setlist remembering actual shows, we still pulled it off with some aplomb.

After completing the whole Jerry Garcia Band show as a Deadstein 1st set, it seemed to poop out Scotty a bit so as a means to prevent him from slipping into a deep Grateful Dead comma while drumming a second set we ended playing a variety of non-Dead songs, mostly Beatles, but some Stones and a Paul Simon Boxer that felt pretty good.  There was some good and some bad but it was still a fun time.  To close the night we played our only true Grateful Dead, a pretty hot and powerful Feel Like a Stranger. It was, “Ba-Ba-Ba” and we were out of there at midnight.

    The recordings also demonstrate a very presentable They Love Each Other and a big-time Rhapsody In Red among other accomplishments.
