Jam-scene royalty built around the talents and indefatigable will to play of New Paltz-bred keyboardist/vocalist Alex Mazur, Gratefully Yours began as a novel concept – a one-off (or two-off) Grateful Dead tribute project that performed dream setlists submitted online by fans – and has ended up as a steadily working, rotating membership unit devoted to the bottomless repertoire of this American institution. Gratefully Yours returns to the Falcon Underground on Friday, October 28 at 7 p.m. This new venue underneath the Falcon in Marlboro is no less exquisite than the upstairs room, and, in fact, doubles as a legit rock and blues museum. Like the whole scene there, it is a must-see place.
Per usual at the Falcon, upstairs and down, there is no cover charge; but generous donation is encouraged in no uncertain terms. The Falcon is located at 1348 Route 9W in Marlboro. For more information, visit www.liveatthefalcon.com.
