We herald the Mar. 17, almost Triennial PAUL KANTNER BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION at Sweetwater Music Hall, with a bit of history. Our first event PK65 in '07, was held at the old Sweetwater. In 2012, the current Sweetwater regime hosted PK70, a 2 nighter at Throckmorton Thr. with many luminaries inc. Nicki Bluhm, Phil Sawyer & Pete Sears. Paul passed in 2016, but we celebrated 2 nights at Sweetwater in 2017 with The Airplane Family & Live Dead '69.For this year's no holds barred Kantner Birthday blowout, the new amalgam Live Dead & Riders '69 make their 'hometown' debut. Of most interesting note, is the reunion of Paul's 1992 Jefferson Starship Next Generation musicians, performing a special edition of his awarded sci-fi rock masterpiece "Blows Against The Empire," with special guests TBAhttps://www.sweetwatermusichall.com/event/1627746/
Tom Constanten, original Grateful Dead pianist who played all the keyboards on the Live Dead recording, inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead's first ambitious/ experimental studio recordings Anthem of The Sun and Aoxomoxoa, and tours.
