We are pleased to announce a great contest and opportunity for our readers. One lucky and talented reader will soon have a fine new addition to his/her wall: A signed poster from Phil Lesh and Friends’ Spring 2001 tour.
Known as PLQ, the Phil Lesh Quintet (2000-2003) is regarded by many to be one of the best post-Grateful Dead ensembles. Consisting of Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes, John Molo, and Rob Barraco, this unit was also the only Phil & Friends lineup to produce an album, There and Back Again.
We are excited for whoever walks away with this poster.
