Interview with Pete Sears
I had the pleasure of interviewing my new freind Pete Sears, super nice guy, this weekend thanks to an introduction by Michael Falzarono. For those that don’t know Pete he’s is currently in a band touring with Melvin Seals and JGB, Moonalice, taking from the Honeymooners "from the moon and back Alice”. The band features Roger McNamee, Pete Sears, Barry Slesss, John Polo and Jason Crosby. Pete, Barry and John are also in one of my favorite bands, The David Nelson Band. For those that don’t know David Nelson, I am not sure you will be reading this, but check out The New Riders of The Purple Sage, one of the finest bands in the land, David being a founding member of the NRPS, who I hope to meet some day and listen to daily with many freinds in common. Pete has a legendary history in music which you can see on Wikipedia, playing keyboards on Maggie May with Rod Stewart, bass with Jefferson Starship to the current day with The David Nelson Band and Moonalice. I’ve gotten to see him and feel his bass a few times at Dark Star Jubilee and this past weekend at The Stone Pony, what a pleasure. You can see this past weekends videos here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtvmEdBpXyM&list=PL6Rz62xeLAME90PO09EcCDWF9UntlaaNV with The Chambers Brother’s Band, which is a whole other story. As I had hoped to be when I saw this announced I was able to be in the right place at the right time and almost on the rail. Enjoy.

Robert Hunter Tribute Show
Robert Hunter Tribute show. There really are no words and totally not about me and more about all of us. Robert Hunter passed to the other side last week, there are no words other then Thank you! I will do my best to tribute him here with a few words and songs to fill the air. Text Jerry Garcia spoke about So Many Roads in an interview with Dave DiMartino in 1992; It's Hunter writing me from my point of view, you know what I mean? We've been working together for so long that he knows what I know. The song is full of references to things that have to do with me.... ....Hunter is the only guy that could do that. He can write my point of view better than I can think it, you know what I mean? So that's the kind of relationship we have. And he frequently writes tunes from my point of view that are autobiographical. There actually biographical I guess. He's the one writing them, but even so they express my point of view - and more than that they express the emotional content of my soul in a certain way that only a long-term and intimate relationship with a guy as brilliant as Hunter coughs up ... I can sing that song, feel totally comfortable with it. Robert Hunter's comments on the origins of this song in the notes in Box Of Rain: Lyrics 1965-1993 <http://www.deaddisc.com/books/Box_Of_Rain_2.htm>;

Interview with Cotter Michaels
Hello everyone, I am Chris Lipper from On The Bus Events Podcast. In this episode, I had the opportunity to interview Cotter Michaels. So I don’t know about you, but when I go see music it’s mainly about the sound. Can be the scene, can be the friends, can be what’s happening on stage, but at the end of the day it’s the sound. The mix is a HUGE part of all that and Cotter Michaels is the master. From out door mega venues like Red Rocks to small indoor and out door venues, Cotter can make any room work and far from effortlessly and he takes very seriously. He’s a pro! You may recognize Cotter as the sound board guy from Dark Star Orchestra and many other larger types of music events. Cotter has mixed sound for bands since the early 80’s when I first met him. He has a wealth of information that he’s happy to share it with you from Hockey, Frisbee, Table Tennis and of course music. Fun fact about Cotter is he’s world class Table Tennis player who plays with a very unusual non aggressive style, knowing Cotter makes total sense. Cotter Michaels and I have been freinds for years and part of the DSO formula for me. A show would not be complete without the pre and post show hellos and conversations guessing the show based on the stage set up that night, he’s never even once given it away to me. This interview was recorded at The Bergen PAC on August 8th 2019. The show you can see here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IM2rBCiLoKM&list=PL6Rz62xeLAMFa1EQ62fqSzX_u0pLfZmpk Probably my worst job ever recording as this annoying guy keeps singing horribly into my mics. He follows me everywhere when I can’t use a tripod, yes it’s me and I am working on STFU. Please enjoy and let Cotter know the next time you see him that you heard our interview. He’s really the best around our seen, ask any musician and they will tell you the same as I hear it everywhere I go.

Interview with Louie, Don and Jay Blakesberg
Hello everyone, I am Chris Lipper from On The Bus Events Podcast. In this episode, I had the opportunity to interview Jay Blakesberg. He is an American, San Francisco-based, photographer and film maker. Since the summer of 2007, Blakesberg has produced and directed the live concert video at numerous music festivals including Rothbury, Lollapallooza, Summer Camp Festival, moe.down, Nateva Festival, Langerado and Mountain Jam. In the spring of 2009 Blakesberg went on the road with the re-united – Grateful Dead original members calling themselves "The Dead" as their tour photographer and video documentarian. The photographs from this tour were used in a print on demand tour book series, while over 15 short films created were used to document and market the tour. Currently Blakesberg continues to document Rock and Roll culture photographically while exploring numerous video projects. In 2015, Blakesberg published "Guitars That Jam—Portraits of the world's most storied rock guitars" which explores the history of many of the guitars in the Jamband scene. Featuring images from live concerts and outdoor festivals, this volume captures the personal connection between artist and instrument. Along with the guitar's make and model, each image is accompanied by a story from the musician detailing the instrument's special characteristics, as well as its significance to them and rock history. Including photographs of Neil Young, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh,Trey Anastasio, Derek Trucks, and Warren Haynes to name just a few. Guitars That Jam features a foreword written by Warren Haynes and is an excellent photographic guide to the world of improvisational rock guitars

Interview with JGB at The Orange County Fair Grounds
Hello everyone, I am Chris Lipper from On The Bus Events Podcast. In this episode, I had the opportunity to interview Sunshine and Zach from the JGB Band JGB is an American rock band led by Melvin Seals, who plays electric organ. Its mission is to continue the musical legacy of the Jerry Garcia Band, of which Seals was a longtime member. Sunshine Flower Garcia is an American singer who performed backing vocals for the band Furthur. Despite her maiden name, Garcia, she is not related to Jerry Garcia, an incorrect assumption made by some because of her involvement with Furthur, a post-Garcia incarnation of the Grateful Dead. Zach Nugent’s playing is soulful, rootsy and organic, the kind of sound that grows out of the music naturally and effortlessly. He gigs almost nightly, singing and improvising in different projects around town and around the country. A lifelong Grateful Dead fan, Zach has a musical resume with that one vital, matchless feature: As far back as he can remember, music has been an integral part of his life.
