JRAD Evergreen at Frost; goldenvoice announces his pre-sale for second summer with Grateful Dead tribute band; Venue honored by industry


Joe Russo Almost Dead at Stanford Frost Amphitheater August 15,

I stopped Rick Mueller of golden voice AEG at the polestar right before the awards banquet  congratulate him on the fact that the magazine listed Frost amphitheater as one of five best new venues for its awards ceremony I said I voted for them for number one.

But I also gave them a little shit and in fact 20 years of several people that it was listed as “Palo Alto” and not Stanford.

If it was part of the city here we would likely be getting some tax sales revenues I think at least from the liquor.

Golden voice does not do shows in Palo Alto although we try to get David Lefkowitz to lean in and tour the varsity when it was in play.  I sold a 1,0000 tickets last year at Mitchell Park community Center and therefore in bigger in Palo alto than golden voice is. (Not to get cocky: golden voice sold at least 100,000 tickets including for Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson in the same week although I felt Lionel Richie was the best show in that he really tried to connect.)

My best show in terms of attendance Molly Tuttle she’s going on the sign new management with Vector ( Emmylou Harris and more, much more)  played for a Grateful Dead festival in Mexico and I was also going to be in jazz fest second weekend next year. She has a couple dead covers in her set, But also yeah yeah yeah.

this puts it in perspective:

Small Venue Talent Buyer of the Year (Under 10K Capacity)
Stacie George, Live Nation

My goal is to get up to 10,000 people for the year .
