Interesting concept


Founding members of the new venture, The Latin Dead, announced the inception of their equity crowdfund. Launched via the Music Benefactors investment platform, The Latin Dead is the first band ever to issue equity to the public.

The Latin Dead, fully appreciating the Grateful Dead experience, aims to convey the dynamic and unpredictable nature of Grateful Dead performances while initiating and fostering the emotional response of the listeners. Investment in The Latin Dead provides an opportunity for anyone to become an executive producer to support, profit and be part of an exciting new pursuit fusing the music of the Grateful Dead with that of Latin Jazz, thereby inaugurating a novel musical marriage.

“The Grateful Dead mythology is a living legend that we will honor, respect and embellish on,” said Brenden Tacon, founder of The Latin Dead. “To uplift, inspire, entice and have fun are our goals above all else.”

The minimum investment to own a part of the recording is $500 with additional increments of $50, and those who allocate greater than or equal to $5,000 will be invited to join the Latin Dead Board of Advisors to collaborate directly with the band and its operations. By reaching its full fundraising goal, the new musical enterprise will feature sufficient high-quality arrangements, a gig-ready professional 10-12 piece band, a full length recorded album, a behind the scenes montage video, a well-structured company and a modest marketing/merchandising effort to provide the band with some initial momentum.


 
Unique way of capitalizing on the lack of being able to tour and make some money.  I heard a whole NPR segment on the hardship of touring musicians during the past year.  Really quite sad.  Music is the only thing, people just don't want to pay a lot of money for, hence why streaming sales are not cutting it for musicians and to make it viable they have to tour.

There seems to be an ongoing split in the deadhead arena, as to whether the best live recordings have been done in the late 1970s, or rather the late 1980s through the early 1990s? 

What do you think? 

Here's a great one from 1977:

 And Jerry was certainly strung out here. 

Went to shows after 86’  and he did have a renewed sense in a few short years there.  A couple of the new songs were good but most just â€œok” to concession breaks.  But worse were the drunken crowds and narcs. 

Last shows I went to were I think 91’. Jerry was very tired. It was somewhat sad. Still glad I went and more interesting to hear Jerry slowhand and weakly sing a Sugaree than listen to Mayer showboat solo to the Coachella boho’s through one were even the old guys are even wondering if he’s going to transition.

He never did quite kick his demons, back and forth over the subsequent years.  I did see a couple of very good vegas shows in 92 or 93.  

As for Mayer, i thought he did a decent job...best post jerry dead-related show i had seen.

I was there. Closer and slightly to the left.

It was very hot there that day (100°). They had lots of equipment issues. I haven't looked ahead but I recall Bob kicking an amp near the end of the first set and being really pissed.

There was a blown speaker in a cabinet on the left side stack. It was making Phil's bass rasp out on the lower register. So during songs Mama Tried and (especially) Me and My Uncle he uses the upper register to play. In the process he hams it up. It shows in video but what isn't clear is the look of how annoyed he is with the blown speaker. You can see him walking to the left to talk to techs and to listen for it. The crowd was amused by the blown speaker but Phil was shaking his head about it. During Me and My Uncle he just goes with it and hams it up on the upper register. I recall Jerry looking at him like "what the hell?". Around 25:00 someone had climbed the stack trying to find the specific blown speaker. In this recording you can only hear the problem well at about 26:30 when Phil intentionally drops to the lower register and makes the speaker wrasp out bad enough to hear it (and for the tech to find it). The tech unplugged it and issue resolved. Shortly after Bob's equipment started acting up.

Though it was hot, it was nice because the place wasn't sold out. That was just before they really filled most good sized venues (unless on coasts). Shows later in the 80's became frat boy hang outs for drinking too much, looking for acid, not being able to handle either and being asses. At that point I didn't go out of my way to attend shows. It was very evident Jerry was tired and the fun carnival atmosphere was no longer the same.  

  


 
Yeah, the whole touch of grey crowd was a bit much, but i disagree re. jerry and the band.  84 , 85 garcia was a strung out junkie.  late 80s he got some of his life back, like this 87 show from foxboro:
