No Grateful Dead fan will want to miss this amazing program of rare performances…

The Grateful Dead were San Francisco’s original psychedelic band from their premiere heyday of 1967 to the untimely death of their leader Jerry Garcia in 1995. Their concerts were musically famous for their long musical jams and legendary caravan of followers. But what was more important was the sensational array of music they created. Shelley Archives Inc has un-earthed from its vaults some of the Grateful Dead’s finest and rarest performances, promotional films, rehearsal footage, and concerts made all around the world. You don’t have to be a true Dead Head to love the music of this band as they perform “Truckin,” “Uncle John’s Band,” “Casey Jones,” “Sugar Magnolia,” “Scarlet Begonias,” “Ripple,” “St. Stephen,” “Sugarfree,” “Friend of the Devil,” “Bertha,” to “Touch of Grey,” with some surprises thrown in between.



ABOUT BILL SHELLEY/SHELLEY ARCHIVES: As a filmmaker, William Shelley has been shooting professionally since the 1970’s when he captured on film and video bands such as The Stray Cats, Twisted Sister, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts playing in small bars and clubs before they became famous. Shelley later associated with rap group Public Enemy (PE), then known as Spectrum City, going on to direct a number of their videos and become an honorary member of PE’s African American Media Network cable television studio.

Shelley Archives Inc. was started in 1985. After working with Readers Digest Entertainment in 1990, the company’s end product was nominated for an Emmy in 1993 for the three part series “Legends of Comedy.” The program was broadcast on the Disney cable network, and home video sales exceeded a record breaking one million copies sold. Today the company has over 100,000 reels of original 35mm and 16mm films in its archive and over 10,000 hours of rare concerts, television shows (from Europe & USA), promos, interviews, out-takes, and home movies, from a wide-ranging variety of subjects. The company has licensed them to numerous documentary and commercial projects throughout the world. Preservation of films and music clips is a main focus of the organization, as well as the desire to compensate the artists.


The music continues this summer…
PINK FLOYD: 1966 – 1975 – Thursday, July 15 – 8pm
LED ZEPPELIN: 1968 – 1980 – Thursday, August 12 – 8pm
