From 'Big Brother And The Holding Company To Country Joe McDonald

Christopher Smith, Special Events Chair for the 133rd AES Convention, has collaborated with award-winning photographer, journalist Mr. Bonzai, on a special salute to "The Sounds Of San Francisco."  Set for Saturday, Oct. 27, 11:15 am - 12:30 pm, the panel will feature members of super-groups that helped create the soundtrack for 'The Summer of Love.'  Also lending his keen perspective to the proceedings is Joel Selvin, a Bay-area journalist, who provided eyewitness coverage of those halcyon days for Rolling Stone, the LA Times, SF Chronicle, Billboard and Melody Maker.

Participants in this soulful 'gathering of the tribe' include: Big Brother And The Holding Company, founding member/songwriter/guitarist, Peter Albin; Huey Lewis And The News, bassist Michael Cipollina, and, Woodstock Festival legend, Country Joe McDonald


"Our panel looms as an historical, attitudinal, and philosophical show stopper." Mr. Bonzai, aka David Goggin, remarked. "Their shared love of music, spirit of adventure and collective memories about this universally acknowledged high point in creativity, community and social awareness remains relevant today.  And ... it will totally rock.  They'll be mixing musical notes, recording anecdotes, and well-sewn wild oats. A high old time is guaranteed for all."
