Make Believe Ball: Great American Music Hall – San Francisco


The Rex Foundation produced our first Make Believe Ball February 18, 2010 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. The Make Believe Ball spawned from an idea by board member Tim Duncan who collaborated with board member Dawn Holliday to arrange for the replay of the infamous 1975 Grateful Dead Blues for Allah record release party later released as One From The Vault. The term Make Believe Ball is attributed to the taper who named his audience tapes of that evening “The Make Believe Ball“.

The Make Believe Ball, reproduced on the state of the art sound system at the Great American Music Hall included the serendipity that Lee, the sound board operator, was the same person who did the sound for the original show in 1975.
Hopefully there will be more to follow, perhaps in a city near you!
