"Online piano bar for hippies," with David Gans

Singer/songwriter David Gans has played 450 (nearly) consecutive Facebook Live streams since the pandemic began, and continues to play for the community he's built - even as in-person shows resume. Total SF host Peter Hartlaub watched one of Gans' streams and then interviewed Gans in his Oakland backyard — talking about his life in orbit of the Grateful Dead, how livestreams have helped his playing, and how his livestream community fueled the most artistically rewarding time of his 50-year career.Produced by Peter Hartlaub. Music is from a David Gans Facebook stream - his originals "Summer By the Bay" and "Your Movie," with covers of "Wharf Rat" and "The Weight."
