In 1976 on January 7th, 9th and 10th, James Booker played with the Jerry Garcia Band for the only time ever. Today we feature excerpts from those dates. An asterisk (*) perceding a song name indicates that this was the only JGB performance of that song.
Fortunato will lift up the sliding door, turn on the space heaters, and clear some room in the garage, so the young people can come in and play their rockin roll music! Tune in live for Objects in Space and The Blacklights.
Jerry Garcia Band live with New Orleans R&B pianist James Booker
Early in January 1976, Jerry Garcia played 3 days (1,2,3) with reknowned New Orleans rhythm and blues pianist James Booker (@ wikipedia). The rehearsal and two live shows were replete with Booker originals and for many, these are the only times Jerry ever performed them. Tune in to hear many JGB rarities.
Fortunato hosted the Last Friday Evening of 2011 by welcoming three rockin' bands to the studio! Causing as much damage to the airwaves as would a Giant Monster Battle over Portland. Even the rave club next door complained about how much noise we were making! Featured in the first of three parts, The Exgirlfriends Club kicked things off.
