The next jam and scheduled for next Tuesday July 1, 2003 at Smash Studios R.

We it was the big breakout for Terez, also more commonly known as Deadstein or Byrnestein, at Tobacco Road.  We got there early, did a Love Each Other soundcheck and played and hour and fifteen minutes to a pretty nice crowd.  With the bright lights on stage it was very difficult to see into the crowd but they seemed to be didgging us.  We played pretty well and most of the practice seemed to pay off.  Whether it was worth it is for each of us to answer in our own minds.

Tobacco Road was cool, we got free drinks and the sound was very good.  I lost electricity after about the fifth song on my effect setup, I don't know why but managed to get through the rest of the night with my strat and my super champ.  Had lots of fun and it was good to play to a nice crowd.   Coffee-Dude got a mini-disk out of it and I wonder how the sound was from the music and video made at the soundboard. 

As usual, a night like that seemed too short but hopefully after they saw how we loaded the bar and were a pleasure to work with, Tobacco Road will invite us back to a full Tuesday night gig where we can play the whole night long. 

Terez was great, animated, sounding good and singing with purpose and leadership.  Great job.  Everyone seemed to love ya.  The rest of us ar the Schleps from Studio R.  Great job with Kevin on the Posters and flyers.   Are there any left over or did the publicity push get all those people there.   Rich, did you get the people there you wanted?  What was there reaction?

Looking forward to the future and we have a Larry birthday setlist coming up this Tuesday.  I'll forward a setlist to kevin and Rich for preparation.  See ya later.

Well then endings we worked on ended nicely like Hey Pcky Way and Tore Up. Ironically, people liked the spaciness of the Come Together jam and we hit the Immigrant song running right out of the blocks. Congrtas to Rich and Terez and the rest of us for putting a great night together. We must really "Love Each Other." Lord you can see that it is true.

Fun is the word. Definitely exceeded all expectations. Level of play -- high. Attendance -- high. Me -- not. CoffeeBro & Me got to listen to his minidisk on the way home. He only got up til Come Along recorded. Shocking. Shockingly tight is the best description I can give. Great job Deadstein. Let me take a moment to apologize for blowing the Come Together lead. (Whoever was taking bets on that one, must have won a fortune). Sorry Trister. (Although the tape was very forgiving. There was no apparent 'blip'). It only goes to prove one thing: I am a SPOC, even when I'm not. Kindness, Comedy, Friendship & Music. Nothin' wrong with that.

That being said, Let me say that it was a pleasure to be part of this band of misfits. The response from the crowd was nothing less then tremendous. The band sounded great (the proof is in the pudding, the Mini disc recording), We all had a lot of fun and the venue was awesome (great job Rich & Mini T). Special Kudos to Mini T for stepping up to the plate and smacking it out of the park!! Also, Trister while you say you didn't have a great night, you blew a lot of people (including me) AWAY with your blistering solo on Immigrant song as well as all of your grooves throughout the night!!!! Kev, Larry and of course myself triangulated into one of the best rhythm sections, I have ever played with, I tip my hat.

The reviews and responses are filtering in and they are sincerely positive. So far, I've spoken to at least 10 people from Broad Street, the place where MiniT and I work. And they all say they dug our deal. The general comments are all good...good vibes...good times...good music. More specifically on a technical level, we experienced what one colleague said were "mix challenges" where the vocals and sometimes the keyboards were hard to hear. But, in spite of that he said there were great moments of beauty when the richness and intricacies of MiniT's vocals and the interplay between the instruments manifested themselves. I believe, and I expect the soundboard CD will demonstrate, that the approach we as Deadstein/Terez has taken to playing this music actually works. There were some amazing peaks (in Deal and To Sir With Love) and some solid patches of subtile beauty (Thrill Is Gone). It felt great from my corner of the room and I'm extremely proud of all of us for giving this idea a shot and pulling it off in such a fine fashion. I'm sure there will be more discussion to come, but clearly, we done good.

Some comments I heard were that there were times it was tough to hear terez but that improved as the night went on. I also heard that there was very little bottom end in our band that there was little of kevin or Kick drum to hear in the low frequencies. I also heard that it was obvious that we were much looser doing the grateful Dead stuff than the non-Dead stuff. I heard it was impressive how very tight we were and what a good arrangements of songs. I heard it was cool to see how we jammed at the end of Immigrant song. Finally, I heard that all our drummers seem to be folically challenged. Nothing but good stuff though.

Thank you for letting me sit in with you guys....all those Tuesday nights ago. Who'd a thunk? I had SO much fun. I'm hesitant to go on much more and risk the "sweet and innocent" accusation. Suffice to say, you guys made it real easy last night and I thank you...my brothers.
