Another great week of well coordinated Deadstein. The music is just going too well. There were no guests and everyone was there but Rich. Dave was a little late but due to a well timed and organized Deliciozo order placed by the Freaky-Waitress-Boy, we got lots of playing in and virtually all of it was great. Knicks take a 2-0 lead in their series with Atlanta. Mets take 2 in a double header and the Yankee's, well who cares?
The music was really strong once again. Not too loud and busy. Lots of listening and the dividends payed off with some quality stuff. I was feeling good and all prepared. I introduced the draft version of the Jerry Garcia Songbook, Release 4.0 beta and got some good tips from Kevin on how to improve the Gindoff syntax. For the record, Scott, Larry, Andy and Kevin gave me $25 for printing the book. Actually Kevin gave me $20 and will pay $5 more upon delivery. I anticipated having it for next Thursday. I was also warmed up by my extensive bongo/egg practice I had in the car on the way over. That really got me warmed up for the drums I played during the Aiko and Deal.
Highlights of the evening include a super well played Bucket, very well times and accentuated. The Greatest Story was also very well played. Larry pulled off a classic To Lay Me Down lead. The music was great. There are so many good things about what and how we play.
The weather was beautiful once again. A perfect Thursday evening. Looking forward to some of the up coming summer jams. Wilten, Conn and Syossette, NY.
Absolute Power freaks and Absolute Freaks Power. Deadstein Rules!!!
