Gathering of the Vibes Festival....Possible Grateful Dead Reunion?
This weekend, this year's annual Gathering of the Vibes Festival will be taking place at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, Connecticut. It just so happens that all four living members of the Grateful Dead will be performing individual sets. Bruce Hornsby, a member of the Dead in the early 90's, will also be performing with Bob Weir.
The last time that Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann all shared a stage together was the magical summer of 2009, where they embarked on a huge reunion tour.
On August 1st, it would have been the late Jerry Garcia's 70th Birthday. How cool would it be if they all put aside their differences for a night to honor the man that helped lead a revolutionary cult known as "Deadheads"? Man, I sure hope so. I've been waiting for this moment for a long time. I really hope that this happens.
Although Bobby and Phil have been touring non-stop together with their band Furthur, it would really be nice to see Mickey and Billy join in on the fun. I know I'm not the only one, as thousands of Deadheads will be hoping for this as well.
There is nothing better than to celebrate this man by throwing a party, playing music in front of a huge crowd, the only way the Dead knows how to. Remember folks, the music never stops and if my hopes and dreams of a great weekend comes to life, there will be nothing left to do but SMILE SMILE SMILE
