Today marks the 41st anniversary of the legendary Summer Jam soundcheck. With one of us having grown up in Western New York - many of our parents were at this show with a variety of stories from them just showing up with just a bag of oranges and the clothes on their back to how incredible each band played that weekend. Our fav recording of the sound check goes to Jeffrey Siniawsky’s front row pull that gets busted up by Tiny from the road crew during the jam into Wharf Rat. Their altercation is caught on tape and it goes down as one of the most humorous moments in Dead tape history next to the guy that was caught saying he hates Keith but would have sex with his wife! HA! Anyways dig in - that jam is transcendent!
