HALF A CENTURY HIGH - Live Dead '69 & Tribute to The Flying Burrito Brothers - 50th Anniversary!
LIVE DEAD '69 performs Grateful Dead at Woodstock 50th Anniversary:
LIVE DEAD ‘69 has announced special 2019 shows celebrating The 50th Anniversary of the original WOODSTOCK FESTIVAL. The band features original Grateful Dead pianist TOM CONSTANTEN, who was part of the original 95 min. set there, Aug. 16, 1969.
“We went on 10:30P,” TOM recalls … “following MOUNTAIN. CREEDENCE (CLEARWATER REVIVAL) followed us. It was incredible.”
Tom Constanten, original Grateful Dead pianist who played all the keyboards on the “Live Dead” recording, inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead’s first ambitious/ experimental studio recordings “Anthem of The Sun” and “Aoxomoxoa,” and tours.
Mark Karan, lead guitarist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog and The Other Ones.
Slick Aguilar who played lead guitar in Jefferson Starship & KBC for 26 years and with David Crosby Band before that. He is also a charter member of The Airplane Family.
Robin Sylvester, bassist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog.
Joe Chirco drummer with John Kadlecik Band
LIVE DEAD ‘69 has acquired a stellar, heady reputation, first performing the classic “Live Dead” (recorded in 1969) in its entirety; then, applying Grateful Dead’s zeitgeist of extemporization and interpretive improvisation beyond an ever expanding repertoire, much of which is created entirely ‘in the moment’ – without rehearsal or traditional ‘preparation.’ They will perform and elaborate upon, Grateful Dead’s Woodstock set.
An additional set with will rotate extensive, exquisite selections from Grateful Dead’s halcyon repertoires of psychedelic originals, cherished covers and & improvisations.
The 50th Anniversary All-Star Tribute to the Flying Burrito Brothers:
The 50th Anniversary All-Star Tribute to THE FLYING BURRITO BROS., has finalized its line-up of legacy musicians, culled from The Who’s Who of Country Rock and Americana music genres. This is nothing less than a deep dive into the origins of contemporary legends like The Eagles, their forbears The Byrds, and their descendants – The Flying Burrito Bros. - founded in 1969 by Gram Parsons, Bernie Leadon, Chris Hillman, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, Chris Ethridge and Michael Clarke. Parsons, whose early death & Joshua Tree cremation are the stuff of rock myth, resurrected The Byrds with his dynamic country & western phrasing on 1968’s seminal & influential “Sweetheart of The Rodeo,” following the departure of David Crosby & Gene Clark. Parsons then left with Hillman to form The Flying Burrito Bros.
The band continued through the 1970s, never capturing the Gram Parsons front man dynamic, until 1979 when singer/ songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Greg Harris was ‘discovered’ by stalwarts Kleinow, & then Burritos members (Byrds’) bassist Skip Battin & Gib Guilbeau. Greg’s performance of classic Parsons’ material was uncanny. This era of the band, mostly intact, continued into the 1990s.
Greg Harris, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and vocalist arrived in LA signed to RCA Records in 1977. He worked a short stint in the infamous Palomino Club house band. He did session work for everyone from The Everly Brothers, Alabama & Gene Parsons, joining The Flying Burrito Bros. in 1979 and recorded two projects, Live in Tokyo in 79’ and The Burrito Bros “Live In Europe” in 86’.
Jeff Pevar, sought after guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist - is possibly best known for his touring & recording work with sixties music icons, David Crosby, CSN, Phil Lesh & Friends, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Jazz is Dead & Jefferson Starship, with whom he played bass for the Woodstock 40th Anniversary Tour. He also supported Bette Midler, Rickie Lee Jones and many others.
David Jackson, bassist - has amassed such a heady range of credits, it would be impossible to list all of them. He has toured/ recorded with Jackson Browne, Dillard & Clarke, John Denver. T-Bone Burnett, Joe Cocker, Glen Campbell, Linda Rosnstadt and Hoyt Axton with whom he famously co-wrote Three Dog Night’s #1 chart topping Bilboard hit - “Joy To The World.”
Don Heffington, drummer/percussionist from Los Angeles learned to play from his Grandmother at 9. He has recorded with Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Dwight Yoakum, & Sheryl Crow to name only a few; and, toured with Lowell George, Emmylou Harris & Lucinda Williams to name only a few.
