    For Bay Area Deadhead/mandophiles:

    Wake the Dead is playing three shows next weekend with mandolin and octave mandolin featured prominently on acoustic settings for the Grateful Dead songbook (and other favorites from the Summer of Love and beyond). You can catch details in the Calendar, but the shows are:
    Friday, April 12, Rhythmix Cultural Works, Alameda
    Saturday, April 13, The Dance Palace, Pt. Reyes Station
    Sunday, April 14, Club Fox, Redwood City

    These are all slightly smaller, more intimate rooms (with friendly prices) than many of our local shows in bigger venues.

    Propaganda:

    This hot sextet combines Irish jigs and reels with the songs of the Grateful Dead and other ’60s iconic bands, delivering them with unique power and joy. Soaring vocal harmonies and daring instrumentals fuel Wake the Dead's singular groove engine, delighting Celtic fans, Deadheads, and folkies alike.

    With 19 years of ever-wider success and touring, the World's First Celtic All-Star Grateful Dead Jam Band has grown to embrace the entire Summer of Love. The Airplane, the Youngbloods, Buffalo Springfield, and even the Beatles are now joyful parts of the mix. Local fans are guaranteed many brand-new surprises.

    Wake the Dead is Danny Carnahan (vocals, octave mandolin), Sylvia Herold (vocals, guitar), Paul Kotapish (vocals, mandolin), Kevin Carr (uilleann pipes, fiddle), Cindy Browne (bass), and Brian Rice (exotic percussion). Their sound is unique, their energy extraordinary — a rare collision of worlds that leaves everybody dancing and grinning.

    I for one would love to hear a recording that includes any San Francisco, early Stones, or Motown material and features mandolin and pipes. How cool is that.

    PK, If you ever need a techno beatbox player, think of me.

    Will do, Jim. Hmmm. I'm not sure we've ever played any early Stones stuff (although I certainly played a lot of it in my early years), and our Motown is a tad peripheral (might be more inclined toward Memphis or Mussel Shoals), but we've definitely got San Francisco and Los Angeles covered.
