After an epic time in Jamaica’s tropical paradise where the communal vibes peaked and the music and collaborations were over the top. The celebration ended with a smokin’ set by The Bridge, Jeff Mattson and Rob Koritz sitting in with Steel Pulse for “Franklin’s Tower,” where their bass player “ambassador” referred to us as “Jerry’s children,” imagine that, and DSO closed its 1st set with “Stir it Up” with that very same bass player plus the keyboardist from Steel Pulse. Now it’s time to take a breather and then move West! Spring Tour West kicks off March 28-29 in Boulder, CO and hits mountains, deserts and all points in between. We'll spend quality time in the Bay Area with a two-night visit to Terrapin Crossroads and a three-night stand at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, where we never feel like strangers. Once we roll into Seattle for our close at The Showbox, we'll be that much closer to the Dark Star Jubilee. Tickets for most Spring West shows and beyond are here.
