GD/BC @ Sunshine Shakedown…Robert’s Creek Hall

by Deanna Knight on May 6, 2023

GD/BC  is a Grateful Dead Tribute I have been quietly playing with for a few years now.  My initial thoughts were “been there done that” over 30 years ago, as one of the founding members of Ontario FatCats.  I wasn’t sure I needed to juggle 3 musical projects, though my hubby would beg to differ ;) Going from nice early shows with no drums for the last 2 decades to 2 drummers, percussion, electric instruments and  looooong sets that have you packing out of the venue around 2am….was a bit of a hard sell. After our sold out show at the historic Cobalt in Vancouver this spring and being picked up by Timbre Concert productions, the musicians outstanding talent and kindness toward me, the fun vibes on stage and the super “dead”dicated fans …They have officially captured my heart.  The Hot Club of Mars are not near as active as we have been in the past and my songwriting is officially NUMBER ONE. However, I will continue to add the harmony “sugar” to GD/BD and the Dead’s extensive songbook, for the foreseeable future.

This wee festival may turn in to an annual event. So come on out and shake your bones to some jam-band classics and share the dancefloor with the fun-loving community that is growling around us.
Early Bird tickets sold out very quickly, so don’t delay in getting yours today and join us “for a real good time”
