Russ Bowers decided he didn’t have enough to do organizing the massive Orange Blossom Jamboree and running Receptor Sound and Lighting at festivals all over. Nope. That wasn’t enough. He needed a band. He played last year’s Great Outdoors Jam with bandmates of his from Indiana, which was excellent, but he needed something closer to home.
Thus Russ Bowers Isn’t Dead Yet, his new project. They are scheduled to play at OBJ and GOJ (in May and July, respectively), but you don’t have to wait that long. RBIDY is holding a two-day party at The Roof at the Daytona Beach Pier April 1st and 2nd. This is a no-cover, children-friendly event!
What you get: Two Nights of Grateful Dead Music performed live by an ALL-STAR LINEUP! Join Russ Bowers and PAPI Productions for a great weekend! The band includes many of Florida’s best and brightest musicians, ready to shine for you:
Michael Garrie, Kenneth Harvey, Andy Lytle, Darryl Quesenberry, Matt Weis, Meesta Juanjamon, Trey Miller, Sean Maloney, and Dennis Stadelman will be playing for you, with some very special guests. Jam some good ol’ Grateful Dead tunes to support Autism Speaks!
Each night will start off with a with a Beach DRUM CIRCLE starting at 5:30 pm. BRING A HAND DRUM if you wanna join.
