Grateful Dead house party - a soiree featuring the Black Muddy River Band

  • This location is shown only to members

Special treats will be sprouting like fireworks at our next Grateful Dead Meetup party. The Black Muddy River Band will be playing in the intimate setting of a house party in North Potomac, MD, where you can raise your freak flags high and relax into an evening of all-inclusive fun. This gathering of the rainbow circle will celebrate life, the universe, a full moon and our friend Dave "RavenSpace" Dennis who will soon be taking his ever-positive and inspiring self on a journey to Ixtlan, well actually on a move to Charlotte, NC.

The Black Muddy River Band is an acoustic trio who play Grateful Dead tunes with a harmonic convergence flowing with warmth and spirit. Jamie, Steve and Dave are locally based musicians and Deadheads who spin colorful webs with all manner of Dead tunes. Here's a link to their website:

A night for listening, playing, dancing, meeting folks and even an opportunity to get aboard in the making of a documentary film about Deadheads. You know, "Who are these Deadheads and why do they keep following me around?"

This is a dining event so please bring some food for sharing, and B.Y.O.B.

On hand will also be the "Magical Mystery CD Box". Burn some to contribute and/or have your pick of CDs. Anything at all.

Directions will follow RSVPs the week before the party.
Let us know if you can offer a ride or need one.

Please contact me with any questions or suggestions. Looking way forward to getting together, again or for the first time.

Fare well,

    Is anybody coming from the Silver Spring/Bethesda area?

    January 26, 2013

    • Glenn

      I got a flat and am now driving on a donut which isn't in the greatest shape, so I can only drive minimally. If someone can get me there, great. Unfortunately I'll have to bail otherwise.

      Maybe Bob can add a waiting list. A few people are bound to bail. As it is, I might not be able to get there until two hours into it myself.
