Description: Their names and music became legendary: Big Brother & the Holding Company, Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and

the house band - The Charlatans.


If the psychedelic sixties were born in the dancehalls of San Francisco,

then they were conceived in a saloon in Virginia City, Nevada where the

musicians carried Winchesters & the kitchen served French gourmet meals.


The psychedelic era fostered cultural growth and artistic expression.

The Red Dog Saloon was the incubator for the lightshow and psychedelic

poster art, an entire lifestyle that truly defined a remarkable era and

defied classification as it weaved it's tapestry of free love and music,

which the Grateful Dead would spread around the world.


Filmmaker Mary Works (assistant editor “Titanic”, “Saving Private Ryan”) was

entrusted with access to the lives, antics and attics of this unique

extended rock and roll family that grew out of these wild times.


Special Info: DVD Features -A conversation with the filmmakers, Where are they now?, Jim Marshall Photo Gallery and Interview




Quotes: “It’s an amazing little piece of Rock & Roll history – little known but with far reaching significance in the overall story of 20th Century America
