Relix: The Book – The Grateful Dead Experience

Posted: 13 Oct 2009 05:32 PM PDT

30 Years of Mind-Melting Art, Interviews, Anecdotes and More!

relix-the_bookRelix Magazine started in 1974 as a way to connect Grateful Dead fans, becoming a unique music and culture magazine, the only remaining publication of its kind. Targeting a loyal readership, Relix spans generations.

RELIX: The Book is a collection of material from the first 30 years of the magazine. As the book unfolds, so does the story of the most colorful band and subsequent culture in history—the Grateful Dead and the Deadheads. The long strange trip is told through editorials, interviews, articles, art, comix and photos, with long-time owner and publisher Toni Brown weaving the story together with an informative narrative.

The current Jamband evolution was born in the pages of Relix. As Phish, Blues TravelerGov't Mule, Widespread Panic, Dave Matthews Band, String Cheese Incident and many others took their places alongside veteran artists like the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers and Hot Tuna, the music scene grew to encompass not only the classic rock-era baby boomers, but their children and grandchildren. Today's Jambands number in the thousands, and Deadheads are alive and well, supporting a very active number of Dead tribute bands and ventures featuring members of the Dead. Those fans number in the millions! The festival phenomenon would not exist without the Relix connection.

RELIX: The Book serves to chronicle the early history of this 35-year-old-publication, bringing full-circle the world it helped create.

About The Author

Toni Brown provided a valid niche for the Grateful Dead during her twenty-plus years as publisher of Relix Magazine, a Deadhead bible and birthplace of the Jamband music scene. From 1979-2001, she supported hundreds of up-and-coming bands, providing the most direct marketplace for musicians to reach their fans.

In 1995, Toni released her debut CD, Blue Morning, featuring the David Nelson Band and Hot Tuna's Jorma Kaukonen, Michael Falzarano and Harvey Sorgen. Surrounded by a vast trove of musical talent, Toni made her way into the performance circle, touring internationally. Her second album, Dare To Dream, featured The Toni Brown Band, along with Vassar Clements and Flying Burrito Brother John Beland.

Referred to by fans as "Patsy Cline on acid" and the "psychedelic Sheryl Crow," Toni Brown spent the past fifteen years weaving an ethereal musical tapestry. The Toni Brown Band was a staple on the club and festival circuit for over a decade, and Toni has toured with the Grateful Dead's Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick and Donna Jean, performed with Leftover Salmon's Vince Hermann, used her band to back up Merl Saunders and Vassar Clements, and played with everyone from Phish to Blues Traveler, Hot Tuna, the New Riders of the Purple Sage, Flying Burrito Brothers, John Cipollina, and dozens of other notables from the classic, jam, psychedelic, blues, folk and country rock genres.

Most recently joined by guitarist/songwriter Ed Munson, Toni has completed State of Mind, her fourth CD, and is touring in support of RELIX: The Book—The Grateful Dead Experience.
