Its was a beautiful Saturday out on the Island for the Tommy Banjofest. It was here that Deadstein rocked for a select audience of freaky families, poolside to boot.  It was a fun day that flowed easily and comfortably.  Deadstein was able to sound good in the conditions.  The outdoors in the shade on a perfect day in mid-summer.  Who could ask for anything more?

The whole band was there but Larry bolted in the middle of the second set to make the ride to catch Phil and friends in Camden.  Somehow, he was able to squeeze this party in the middle of an extensive Phil tour.  After Larry left, Tom Banjo's brother-in-law Grateful Ted sat in for the rest of the night with Larry's equipment which he left in tack for him.

It was three sets with long breaks in between surrounded by food drinks and swimming.  The load out was pretty good and easy.  Almost everything got back but Dave's drums, Larry's Amp and some guitar, music and mic stands still remains at the Banjo abode.  I got the entire PA and Larry's guitar. pedals and bag.

The music was impressively good.  It felt good to allow the sound to  seek freedom past the confines of 4 walls, ceilings and floors.  The PA system was inadequate as usual and presented a pretty muffled sound.  Besides that the sound was really good.  The tape sounds good. 

We started at 2:00 played till 7:30 and I got home by 10:30 not a bad day.  Gotta thank the Banjo-Poise-Snappa family for such a nice day and time.

Till we meet again next Thursday for night at PSEUDO.  Let's pray for elevators.

Amen, Brother.

Hey, it's hard to lose when you combine so many of my favorite things: not working, jamming in the daytime, pool, kids, beautiful blue outside day w/shade, catering, but I must give Poisy the acknowledgement on putting it all together - Thanks, it was a great day. And if 2 more people would've showed up, there would've been 10 people there. I love the way Deadstein just sets-up and plays. The 'no soundcheck' arrogance was brilliant I thought it sounded great. The volume must have been OK, cause I saw people sitting on the bench's in front of us talking. TheGind says the tape sounds good. Good, it felt really good. My kids & wife had a good time. My parents had a good time. I had a good time. There was lots of good going on. Great day.

We should play on the roof of Pseudo..it sounds so much better outside. I just made the last ferry...they closed the doors two minutes afetr I got on. Thanks Grateful Ted for the perfect directions! Kathy, Allie Drew and Lance all passed out within minutes of leaving the dock in the car. What a great way to travel. If only I could catch a ferry to Pseudo.

Thank you Tommy and Angela for a great afternoon.
