Hi folks I just got off the phone with Captain Toast, manager of New Riders of the Purple Sage. Unfortunately, the New Riders won't be able to make it to this years Bears Picnic. David Nelson is still undergoing treatments and needs a little more time to heal before he begins touring again. David is in high spirits and wants to play the Picnic but management is insisting that he takes a little more time. We respect this decision and want nothing more then for David to be healthy! Our love, prayers and positive healing vibes go out to David and his family.
With the New Riders dropping out, we have added Stir Fried featuring Buddy Cage and Michael Falzarano of the New Riders of the Purple Sage with Scott Guberman of Phil Lesh Terrapin Family Band.
The scheduled is published under 'Lineup'.
