3JimMarshallPanHandleSFGRoupsRock2014 As many of you already know the musical groups that created the “San Francisco sound” in the sixties lived in Marin County.  This photo was taken by Jim Marshall in the San Francisco Panhandle.  This photo includes the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and the Charlatans all of which were frequent visitors to the Trident back in the day. Tune in, turn on,  and thanks for coming by!

Phil Lesh Grateful Dead

Phil Lesh performing in his Trident T-Shirt:  I use to eat lunch with Phil Lesh when he was in town, we would drive on weekdays to the Trident from San Rafael in his car for a legit reason to drive somewhere FURTHER than Marin Joes.    If I remember correctly, Kelly had something to do with the tee-shirt design. I don’t remember buying it, but I do remember having a Trident shirt.  David Crosby talks about the Trident and his sailboat in his first book. Jiro, then known as Melvin, when Jerry Garcia came in would hang out and BS together. Nice folks!
