Grateful Dead radio host, author and musician David Gans played live at the Bahr Gallery on Thursday November 3rd and Friday November 4th, 2022.
David Gans delivers literate, improvisational folk-rock with looping in a “solo electric" setting. A solo Gans show is likely to consist of several elements: country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop-based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballads, original or borrowed; Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar; wry observations of the music-festival subculture and the larger world; soulful and passionate political commentary; favorites from the folk-rock canon of the last 50 years. Mix and match - it's never the same show twice, but it's always worth a listen.
David is the author or co-author of five books including Playing in the Band: An Oral and Visual Portrait of the Grateful Dead, and This Is All a Dream We Dreamed: An Oral History of the Grateful Dead, and the host of the weekly syndicated radio show The Grateful Dead Hour. He currently co-hosts a radio show with Gary Lambert on Sirius XM's Grateful Dead Channel called Tales from the Golden Road, a call-in show about the Grateful Dead.You can find his books, music, and other items online at perfectible.net
