After three long years, Grateful Dead radio host, author and musician David Gans will be retuning to play live at the Bahr Gallery on Thursday November 3rd and Friday November 4th. These events will sell out and an RSVP is a MUST. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list.
Dates: Thursday November 3rd + Friday November 4th
Doors will open at 7pm and David will be meeting and speaking with guests as well as signing his books and CDs. Ben Diamond will pay some slack key guitar numbers beginning at 7:45 and then David takes the stage at 8:15. With a “short break” in the middle, our evening will end at 10.
We ask for a $20 per person offset for the music - cash at the door please - Refreshments and snacks will be served for free but we also will assume you will have eaten beforehand - Oyster Bay has a bunch of great restaurant choices and you can see them and learn a bit more about your dinner options here.
You must be on The List to get in to either day so please RSVP to Ted@BahrGallery.com before these shows are sold out.
David Gans delivers literate, improvisational folk-rock with looping in a “solo electric" setting. A solo Gans show is likely to consist of several elements: country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop-based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballads, original or borrowed; Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar; wry observations of the music-festival subculture and the larger world; soulful and passionate political commentary; favorites from the folk-rock canon of the last 50 years. Mix and match - it's never the same show twice, but it's always worth a listen.
David is the author or co-author of five books including Playing in the Band: An Oral and Visual Portrait of the Grateful Dead, and This Is All a Dream We Dreamed: An Oral History of the Grateful Dead, and the host of the weekly syndicated radio show The Grateful Dead Hour. He currently co-hosts a radio show with Gary Lambert on Sirius XM's Grateful Dead Channel called Tales from the Golden Road, a call-in show about the Grateful Dead.You can find his books, music, and other items online at perfectible.net
