Reid Genauer & Folks: January Jam in San Fran!
Friday, Jan 5th, 2018 • San Francisco, CA
Great American Music Hall
Doors: 8pm | Start: 9pm
Happy holidays to you and yours. I'm writing to shed some light on an upcoming gig Jan 5th at the Great American Music Hall that features members of Assembly of Dust, Strangefolk (see below) and local bay area face melters Jay Lane (drums) and Dan “LEBO” Lebowitz (guitar, pedal steel). I've always thought it was somewhat ironic that songs are my gateway to the Jamband scene. I have such deep affection and admiration for the collective of blistering musicians, my co-conspirators, whose creativity and friendship have brought those songs to life. Time and time again, they translate lyrical lore into a rich musical language. It's really a dream I dreamed long ago — that's come true in brilliant color. This gig is a celebration to announce a new album and Kickstarter campaign title “Conspire to Smile,” the details of which will be shared forthwith. The album will come out in the spring and includes 10 covers about love & positivity, and 2 new originals... 1 AOD and 1 Strangefolk.
Thus far we have more than 15 musicians participating including all of the current members of AOD and Strangefolk and some face-melting friends from our extended community. Conspire to Smile with me, my friends, fellow musicians and folks near and far. Raise high the roof beams at The Great American if you're in the Bay Area Friday, Jan 5th. Regardless of your geography, join me in celebrating our collective lore and the conviction that the reciprocal nature of music connects us all to the stretched-out soul of rock and roll. We will remain and be better for it. Bet your ass on it!
“Roads” from The Capitol Theatre
Earlier this year we performed at The Capitol Theatre with Anders Osborne and Jackie Greene. The performance was captured in HD video by our friends at nugs.net. This is the first of several videos that we anticipate finding their way to the Ether... “Roads.”
Stay tuned for 2017/2018 dates announced later this month.
