One More Saturday Night, we of the Grateful ‘Ohana of Kaua’i, along with friends from around the world were still swimming in the bliss of NYE’s gargantuan show, and suddenly we find ourselves somewhere on a back porch in January, singing and playing our hearts out with two of my favorite musicians: the legendary Bobby Weir and the revered Taj Mahal.
The historic New Year’s Eve event on the glorious North Shore of Kauai was a dream come true for us all. After a last-minute venue change, the event of a lifetime for hundreds of grateful people was hosted at the beautiful Prince Course.

Guitarist Bob Weir led his bandmates, drummer Jay Lane and bassist Don Was through an opening set full of Grateful Dead favorites. The second set started with the legendary John Oates, one half of the best-selling duo of all time, Hall & Oates, and Buddy Miller on the tour’s first cover of Mississippi John Hurt’s “My Creole Belle.” Oates stuck around, joining in on The Grateful Dead’s “Friend Of The Devil.”
