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.
The Last Friday Night of 2011 continues as host Fortunato host a Giant Monster Battle of live music in the studio. Part 2 features Di Di Mai rockin' it out. The Sexywatersiders, also,infested the air room for a while as we continued to talk with Sabrina in Los Angeles.
Part 3 of this Giant Monster Battle of live music. Hosted by Fortunato.The Sexywaterspiders finally got on the air at 2:30am, and the show was scheduled to end at 3am. But, the followup host Devin let them play past that almost to 4am. So this is the full 78 minute performance as it went out live on the air. There are some short talk overs with the band Di Di Mai.
