This was from last weekend. Went to The Stone Pony in Asbury Park to see some bands playing. This band surprisingly was my favorite, considering it was playing a lot of Grateful Dead. I think I may have just disliked the Grateful Dead because I was forced to listen to them at the Lake Wanda store all the time. When I’m free the music just sounds so much sweeter. Dunno.
I’m so happy that more people are becoming interested in sharing their stories❤️ This submission is from Lisa Pnut Goebel Garza, she’s from New Jersey where she left in the early 90s as a teen. After her 1st summer tour out West, she stayed in Santa Cruz, CA for about 20 years, and now lives in the Denver area. Lisa loves her kids, her music which she describes as her religion and fills her soul to boundless places, and her art (currently jewelry). Her first dead show was Meadowlands, either summer or fall tour, and she still has the tape! #TheGratefulDead to her is about the music, kindness, love, common threads that cross socioeconomic lines, no judgements, faith and spirituality that has no bounds, and doesn’t believe that being a #deadhead can be classified or generalized. As long as you love the music itself and let it move you, then you’ll know if you’re a deadhead. She does believe that being on lot is part of any good show, and has sold grilled cheese, beer, her art and handmade jewelry and beads since before she could drive to make money for tickets. HOME GROWN JULZ HomeGrownJulzDesigns.etsy.com is where you can purchase some of her and jewelry! Although she doesn’t travel too far for shows anymore, she still catches every show within a few hundred miles including jam bands and full line-ups. Lisa describes her favorite memory involving the dead, “If I had to pick just one it would be an MSG NYC run (pre-guilliani days). The Streets around the Garden were shut down, lined with uniform officers as far as the eye could see on horses. NYC is magic, rarely does one get to sit and dance in the streets, for it was the shakedown!” Thank you so very much for sharing that magical moment with all of us❤️⚡️💙
After what felt like forever, I finally received my second interview submission for the page! I would like to introduce Neal, who works security and maintenance at a town hall in western Massachusetts. He has an 8 year old daughter named Cassidy after he heard the song for the first time when he was 12, an older friend (16) introduced him to the Hartford ‘77 set. His first show was The Other Ones in Connecticut 2000, where he said he fell in love and has been on the bus ever since! He’s also seen #Ratdog , #PhilandFriends , #RhythmDevils , and other projects. Neal describes #TheGratefulDead as being a way of life, a feeling, a community of like minded people from all different backgrounds and ages who come together and bond over music and a very special band, being kind, woke, full of love. A tribe of good vibes. He enjoys hanging out on lot, he doesn’t vend personally, but has love for many of the vendors, and also keeps his eye out for “goodies,” as many of us also tend to do😉 Although he isn’t able to travel for shows as often as he used to, due to now having a kid, he tries to couch tour as much a possible so he doesn’t miss anything! Thank you Neal for your addition to my page, and sharing your story!!❤️⚡️💙
