Playing next week is Thursday  Hutch party on August 21, 1999.  Laura Cohen Party on JUly 31, 1999 and Sparta NJ coming  3rd Saturday in June.  Deadstein on tour 99 and we were practicing to see if we could titalate them with a hot acoustic opener.  I don't know, I don't think it's what people would expect.

Special Larry Gindoff birthday show commemorated with a totally acoustic evening without air conditioning. Actually my birthday was last Wednesday but I forgot I wanted the acoustic thing so it was put off six days.   Kevin was missing as he is taking is summer sojourn.  Dave is loving the time on bass and it's a good thing because Kevin would have walked out on the acoustic jam.  No amplification, no PA, no effects.  I played mandolin all night, It was so acoustic that we played it upstairs. Although it was a sweltering summer evening and we decided to play upstairs where there was potential air conditioning but it was too noisy to use.   It was hot but everyone indulged me for the good of the night and I thank everyone for it.

The Hutch stopped by with his brother Jay to check us out.  Not only did they not get Kevin but they got acoustic Deadstein, upstairs without air conditioning, sappy slow songs they never heard, and to boot they couldn't talk.  I give them credit for putting up with us for most of the first set.  They left after the Jack-a-Roe.  Get set for a Jay Hutch party in Sprata, NJ pig roast  and all, around the 3rd Saturday in September 1 p.m.- dark.  Invites allowed.daveonbass.jpg (16760 bytes)

Johnny had planned a long evening a quiet sleep upstairs in the cool air but was subject to a hot evening of sweltering acoustic music.  I know the heat especially hurt Scott and I really appreciate his effort and indulgence in the jam.   It really was a Deadstein first with the serious acoustic thing.  I'm listening to the DAT of it as I type this (Sing Me Back Home) and it's going to make a great CD,  It sounds real good.  I'm impressed with Deadstein, we pulled off the tough acoustic jam.  Brotman evening pulled off the bongo's without ever doing them before.  The singing sounds great, clear and present.  I still impressed with how we stuck it out.  Playing many new songs and many self contained songs. 

I know Scott had a lot of trouble getting through some of the slow ones like Sing Me Back Home but he persevered, he took a veto and blew off the ballad of Casey Jones.  If there was any fault with the music was it could have been a little faster and crisper, espcially the fast songs.  Little Sadie is an example of this, it was a tad bit dragging but well done never the less.  Larry and I had the riff going simultaneously well for a while at the end.

I was even impressed with the Dawg's Walt'z, it was really auhentic in the soul of that song.  It really was sweet at times.  We practiced a bit on the Shady Grove,  Pulling a doing it twice off in serious fashion, so although we didn't play the Casey Jones, we did do the the Shady Grove twice, it was long also so there were lots of songs played.  Seventeen total songs and there were very few very short ones.

How about Jenny Jenkins?  TRister's an expert at that one,   we had that rosa cozy, fiddle a foldy thing down.  Scott's egg playing was great during the Freight Train.  WE did the first Amazing Grace in Deadstein history.   In it's bluegrass texture and wrong chord formation it was more of an Amazing Disgrace as far as Dave was concerned.  It was preety good.  Fastest Amazing Grace done this decade.

Sorry guys, this response is meant to be last week but hey Rich just shows me that you guys have this cool web page. The big misinformation was about my exotic name. Believe it or not, my name is not pomegrante but Apple (as American as Apple pie.) Anyway, I just found out that you guys played acoustic last night and damn I missed the big one. Alright, catch your folks later.

I know whenever Apple & I were introduced, no body could see me or hear me, so I decided to hv a nick name as Banana, so your eyes will turn to me and remember me.

I would love to come and enjoy your jam, later -- Banana (Joanna).

Larry G - Happy Bithday dude! Wow an acoustic show - I'm sure Kev will put an end to that come his return. But, I do like the idea of slipping in an acoustic Stella Blue if the electric side of the band suddenly comes down with a case of the Daddy Blue Lips. You all would of been proud of Paul Pos's Telluride jamming. He blew away a Colorado band when he joined their backyard kegg jam and through down sax solo's that I've heard are still shaking the continental divide! He then proceeded to play three sets of reggae at Garfield's (also in To hell u ride) and blew the freaky cats to Negril and back! All I could think about was seeing Pos jam with you cool cats at the end of the month in L.I. It's gonna be good! All my best - see ya next month!!

Hutch isn't stupid, He knows what to do to get Mr.T to reconsider. Whether it's Ben's Or A Boston Servent, Maybe he'll see his way with the rest of us on 8/21. Oh G-d Wait till Kev get's wind of this..... Thank's Gind for an exceptional evening of Acoustic Deadstein. Highlights were definetly Freight Train, Jenny Jenkins,Sing Me Back Home,Shady Grove And Dawgs Waltz were real good. If only we kept the A/C ON... But I gather the Gind has quite a quiet CD Brewing. Nice super impose mandolin/gindoff pic. Have a safe 4th of July Weekend. P.S. Week Of 7/26 2 year anniversary At WWI...

I have already made on copy of the CD and it does sound surprising very goood and well balanced between all the instruments. I agree with Scott on the highlights of the night, it was those songs that we really gained our stride during. The CD is enjoyable, 14 of the 17 songs made it. There is no Thrill is Gone, No Good Night Irene and No Rippple. The rest of the night fit and is a collectors item for any Dedastein affecianado. Should I make up extras to sell during the Deadstein 1999 tour? How about Tee shirts?

Sittin around the campfire, banging the bongos at the Deadstein Cafe, 'twas a Grand Acoustic Happening. I'm looking forward to spinning the CD to hear what was layed down. In other news a mandatory company dinner with our major client on Thursday will prevent me from attending the next hootinany. The food will be good, but I'm certainly missin' the music. Have fun, see y'all in the following go-around.

Why don't we play YMCA while we are at it? When is Kevin getting back, my eardrums are degenerating from lack of use. Just kidding. I would prefer the Black Magic Woman Over the Easy to Slip becuase the BMW is closer to a Brown-Eyed Woman that Easy to Slip is close to an Easy to Love. It loses some points becuase it was a Brent Song and/or a similarly names Bobby Songs. In anycase, I could atleast enjoy some conga action during a Santana song. I recently saw Santana on TV and he had a nice 8 1/2" x 11" framed photo of Jerry on his ampliphier. Pretty cool. He also had a smaller one of Hendrix up there.
