New Riders of the Purple Sage
- The origin story: in 1969, John “Marmaduke” Dawson was a one-man country-song factory, but didn’t have a band to play with. Meanwhile, one of his close friends wanted someone to pedal steel guitar with.
- That friend: Jerry Garcia
- Who else pulled double duty between the Grateful Dead and the New Riders in the early days: Robert Hunter, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and the green bear
- Their family tree also includes: Mother McCree’s Uptown Jug Champions, Jefferson Airplane, and the Great Speckled Bird
- Number of iterations the New Riders have gone through since the beginning: at least three
- Number of albums released between 1970 and 1980: 12
- Longest break between studio albums: 1980–2009
- Their latest: 2012’s 17 Pine Avenue
- What Jeb Wright at Classic Rock Revisited had to say about it: “The album flows from beginning to end, mixing electric with acoustic just the way the debut did. This is a band who still feel every note.”<p>
Paramount Hudson Valley
“A Paramount All-Talking Picture” starring Maurice Chevalier and Claudette Colbert drew great public fanfare when the Paramount Hudson Valley debuted in 1930. Then known as the Peekskill Paramount Theater, and owned by a subsidiary of mega-studio Paramount Pictures, the Westchester County Landmark stifled Great Depression and World War II woes as a grand movie house for decades. After shopping malls and TV thwarted its status as a movie house in the ’70s, the palace recently reemerged as the Paramount Hudson Valley and now attracts top-name live performers. Lovingly renovated to its original 1930’s sheen, the theater sports new carpet, refurbished vintage theater seats, hand painted ceiling canvas, and opera boxes.
