Kyle's project w/Speech and Chief Xcel/DJ Logic was the shit. I think he's the coolest cheese member.

Hollingsworth should fill out this lineup a bit. I saw them down at Langerado and it was good, but not quite as great as I might have hoped. Hopefully by 10KLF they'll have it together a bit more and maybe stretch out some jams a bit further.

this show might as well be called the Allstar Jam, man i wish they were playing in cleveland... now is this gonna be a Rhythm Devils 2 or is this gonna be some thing a little less dead oriented? either way im gonna lap it up.... some Dead, some Kimock Jazz, some Funk, some CHeese? lets get it on

Mickey needs to get rid of jen durkin, the only women singer I have ever liked for any dead related band was joan osborne when she played for P & F.

C'mon Mick, I wanna see your band added to Outside Lands. A San Francisco Festival just is not complete without some members of the Dead.

This lineup looks like lots of fun. I always thought Kyle was probably the most truly talented member of cheese so he should bring some good stuff to Mickey's band. It will be interesting to hear what type of setlists they play. How about an MLT with Kimock on guitar, Mickey on perc, and Porter on bass......nasty!

WOOO! Southgate House is the sickest venue in Newport/Cincinnati Area. Looking forward to this/Rothbury.

This is great, that band was already the real deal, now with Kyle, who in my opinion is as close as it gets to Brent, this band will burn down any house it appears in. OK, I'm raving, but still, bought my tix for Rams Head Live in Baltimore today, and I'm leaning to getting Birchmere VA too.

Peace thru Dead Cheese!

Kyle is the best cheese member. Jen Durkin is a great singer, infinitely less boring than Ms. Osborne, IMO.

I wonder is Steve Kimmock is bringing his chair so he can sit if he gets tired? I love Kyle, I love George and Mickey, but Jenn isn't my cup of tea. My friend was hanging with a chick with dread locks and i tried to introduce myslef and she acted like I was invisible. Then I found out it was Jenn Durkin. If I had ever heard of her I would have been impressed, but that is no excuse for poor manners. So I'm mixed. She has a good voice, it just doesn't fit with this band.

Joan Osbourne has a five octave range and can sing her ass off. Jenn doesn't have half her voice, unless your from CT, then suddenly her voice gains three octaves she never uses.

OK....I am not a hater by any stretch, but....I attended the Mickey Hart show at the Harmony Fest. In Santa Rosa.... It was HORRIBLE.... Really, they opened with not fade away with Jackie Green, which was just OK, but it did not suck. From that point on it was downhill.....I felt like I was on a cruise ship listening to bad calypso music...It got worse and worse and I have to say MANY people began to leave. I soon followed....Very depressing being I am a huge fan.....My word of caution is, don't get your hopes up......It was a very very sad day indeed
