David Lemieux Tape Collection

In the days before CDs, digital file sharing, streaming, and downloading, Dead Heads collected their Grateful Dead music on cassette tapes, trading live concerts with one another through the mail. 

This cassette collection is a portion of Grateful Dead archivist and legacy manager David Lemieux's personal tape archive, which he acquired through tape trades with other Dead Heads from 1985-1993. In addition to the 600+ tapes you see here are two cassette decks used to make copies of tapes for trades, a Tascam and a Nakamichi. 

David was also a live concert taper at Grateful Dead shows 1989-1993, and his original Sony D-5 cassette recorder will be on display . He recorded dozens of live Grateful Dead shows during those years, using these Shure SM-94 microphones 1989-1990, later switching to Nakamichi 300 microphones.

Bar & Lounge

Fans can enjoy an atmospheric bar and lounge offering specialty cocktails and other beverages for sale and discover many additional surprises and interactive photo opportunities throughout the experience.

Grateful Dead
Dancing Bears

The Grateful Dead's early benefactor and sound man, Owsley Stanley, was known by the nickname "Bear." Bear was very strong for his size, and was very fitness-conscious. In 1973, when the Dead were releasing their final album with Warner Bros., they had Bear select live recordings from 1970, hence the name of the album: "History of the Grateful Dead Vol. 1: Bear's Choice," and the artwork by Bob Thomas was the first time the world saw the "dancing bears" (which Bear insisted were "marching bears"). From there the bears took off as a visual icon of the Grateful Dead, mostly perpetuated by Dead Heads on shirts, vans, and even costumes. Bear was an essential member of the Grateful Dead family, producing their live sound in 1966, 1968-1970, and was a prime mover in the development of the Grateful Dead's Wall of Sound in 1974.
