Daniel Hill: Has the Schwag performed since Jimmy got locked up?

Sean Allen Canan: Twice the band played with fill-in musicians to benefit the Tebeau family.

So how long was Jimmy in lockup?

About a year.

And how did he get out so early? What is the situation that prompted that?

Good behavior and completing a program called RDAP, which lead to a sentence reduction.

Have you guys practiced together yet?

We've gotten together a couple of times now, and the band is sounding better than ever.

How does it feel to be back together on the stage again?

The band has such a unique vibe and energy. Interpreting the music of the GD catalog is very thrilling for us. It will certainly be a joyous occasion to get back in front of the Schwag family! You know, half of the songs that the Dead played were classics from the great American songbook. Be it Chuck Berry rockers, Motown staples, classic country or traditional folk tunes. It really doesn't get much more American than the Grateful Dead!

Any surprises planned?

Aside from Jimmy still having his wizardly beard and dreads, there will be several new songs from the GD catalog that the band has never performed together.
