7 Walkers To Play Post-Phish SF Shows

7 WALKERS’ NEW STUDIO ALBUM TO BE RELEASED LATER THIS YEAR

7 Walkers
Famed drummer and Grateful Dead co-founder Bill Kreutzmann, voodoo guitar master Papa Mali, legendary New Orleans bass man George Porter Jr. (The Meters, Funky Meters), and multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson, Fastball) come together as 7 Walkers for two special shows at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.

On Friday, August 6 and Saturday, August 7, after Phish perform at The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, the party will continue in high fashion as fans from across The Bay descend upon the historic Great American for two nights of psychedelic swamp grooves, reworked Grateful Dead sing-alongs, and funked-up New Orleans standards.

August 6 is being billed as a “Masquerade Party in Celebration of Jerry Garcia.” As Deadheads prepare for the 15th Anniversary of Garcia’s passing on August 9, commonly referred to as “Jerry Day,” fans are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Grateful Dead lyric. There will be a silent auction hosted by the Rex Musical Caravan and Moonalice will open the show.

August 7 will be a “Tribal Communion for Gulf Coast Awareness” with partial proceeds being donated to relief efforts in the Gulf Coast. Featuring an opening set by local act Tracorum as well as New Orleans hero Big Chief Monk Boudreaux with Papa Mali, the night will also find the famed Indian Chief sitting in with 7 Walkers for a show that’s sure to raise the spirits.

7 Walkers recently spent time in Austin, Texas recording their debut album due later this year. The highly- anticipated effort will feature a batch of brand-new Robert Hunter (Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan lyricist) originals that were co-written with the band, as well as a number of Grateful Dead favorites, Papa Mali nuggets, and New Orleans burners.

Live audio recordings of 7 Walkers can be heard at the newly re-launched www.billkreutzmann.com.
