I was thinking the same thing....

But happy for Phil as he has been working toward this and did say he wanted to play with his son. And this is a much better location than Fairfax -- the Old Palm Ballroom and it is pretty close to where Carlos Santana lives.

Any speculation on the first performances there?

The project was supposed to originally be in Fairfax, but due to some complaints from locals, Phil decided to look elsewhere. They were going to possibly use a church in Fairfax, but some of the church goers didn't like the idea, possibly due to parking issues. Glad he found this spot! We were just visiting the city yesterday and I liked it a lot. I can't wait to check it out!! Thanks a bunch Phil!!

Congratulations!! I'm so glad you found a home for this incredible venture, Phil!! You and the Crossroads will be a wonderful addition to the local community (one that deserves you!) and to the larger GD Family as well. I can't wait to head west to check out a show!!

Thanks for the news, and most definitely for stopping by here today. Don't be a stranger!!

This just sounds amazing, I'm getting so excited!!
From the website:

As one would expect from any concert venue built by a member of the Grateful Dead, the Grate Room at Terrapin Crossroads will feature state-of-the-art sound, provided by none other than Meyer Sound. This new sound system will be installed and ready to go, along with a cosmetic facelift, in time for the first performances, scheduled for March 2012.



The Grate Room will present live music of all types, from Phil Lesh & Friends shows with world-class guest artists to “Rambles” (modeled on Levon Helm’s legendary Midnight Rambles) with the Lesh Family Ramble Band, and “Terrapin All-Stars” featuring a rotating cast of fantastic local talent. We will host Big-Band dance nights, Jazz with wine tasting (hey, we are just south of Sonoma and Napa…), Latin or Salsa nights, “Telstar” free form jam nights, Sunday morning brunch featuring sacred music from around the world, and much more.



In the grand tradition of the Bay Area’s best ballrooms, the Grate Room will add a spectacular dimension to the Bay Area’s live music scene. Be sure to check the TC calendar often, as we plan to announce shows frequently with a very busy schedule throughout the Spring and Summer of 2012. In the Fall of 2012, we’ll be closing down the Grate Room for a major renovation, with a grand re-opening targeted for March, 2013, when we’ll be ready to provide San Rafael with top quality music for years to come.
