Keystone (New Monk), 2119 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA

 In 1968, the place (The Monk) moved closer to campus, to the corner of University and Shattuck Avenues. The new club at 2119 University was called The New Monk. It had local rock bands headlining on weekends, but most of the time it was just a beer and pizza place for college students.

In Berkeley California, just two blocks from the UC campus, there stood a cavernous, shabby, dark, and wonderful club called the Keystone Berkeley. It was a venue for rock and roll shows.


It became the place where more important living was done and more memories were formed than any other place in the Bay Area. It stood at the intersection where University and Shattuck Avenues formed a "T". University ran due east from the bay and the Berkeley marina, about 2 miles away. Shattuck ran due north from Oakland, heading straight for the Keystone, which lay not along its side, but directly in its path at the top of the T. Here, the headlights of the oncoming traffic, before making a forced left turn onto University, would light the front of the club and the crowd milling outside waiting to get in, magically marking it as the place to be after dark; a down-to-earth Berkeley equivalent of klieg lights sweeping the sky to draw attention.
In the middle of 1971, however, The New Monk started booking higher profile club bands. Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders played there on June 4 and 5, 1971, and then again on June 26 and June 27. At the end of August, Keystone owner Freddie Herrera officially announced that he would be buying the New Monk. It's my belief that Herrera had been booking the New Monk already for some months. Garcia played Keystone Korner 20 times in 1971, so clearly it was the preferred venue, but Herrera's takeover of The New Monk put it on Garcia's radar..
In March, 1972, the New Monk changed it's name to Keystone Berkeley, to distinguish it from Keystone Korner in San Francisco. The first Keystone Berkeley show I have been able to find was March 2, 1972, with the Sons Of Champlin. The first Garcia/Saunders show at Keystone Berkeley was soon after that, on March 8, 1972. (lostlivedead)

The club had a conventional setup, a rectangular room with the stage at the far end, opposite from the bar. There was a little balcony for the soundboard and a few tables (members of the Dead would sometimes watch the Garcia Band from the soundboard). Backstage, such as it was, was a big room behind the bar. It can be viewed on the inside cover of the Jerry Garcia/Merl Saunders Live At Keystone album.
there was no backstage per se, as the stage was on the opposite end from the bar and the back room. Thus the band--including Garcia--had to walk through the audience to get to the stage.  It was actually on the East Coast where the Dead became really huge, and Garcia became larger than life. Nonetheless it was still astonishing that the Dead could headline Madison Square Garden, and a few weeks later Garcia would play this bar where he had to walk through the crowd to get to the stage. (lostlivedead)

The Keystone served mostly as a home for local bands on the way up (or often going nowhere), but also sometimes featured bigger acts on the way down, or enjoying brief revivals after having already hit bottom once. The acoustics there could have been anything from perfect to horrible. My untrained ears didn't care. As long as a stack of amps could rock the room, my friends and I were happy. Someone from the club must have thought differently, because one night strange sound baffles (or maybe deflectors?) suddenly showed up on the walls to both sides of the stage, apparently in some effort to improve the sound. I never noticed any difference. It didn't matter, because the sound was not what the place was about. Heat and sweat, fun and energy were what it was about. If a good band was forcing a high ticket price, there were usually tables set in front of the stage. For the cheap shows that wouldn't draw very well, the tables were cleared to form a large dance floor. The long walls to the left and right of the stage had benches that were about 30 inches high and ran the length of the floor. They were made of plain boards, three high and one deep. They reminded me of the storage bins that circled the floor in the basement of the house where my two brothers and I were raised in Brooklyn. Those held blankets, toys, books, and whatever else would have been useless or in the way upstairs. They were just big enough so that a boy playing out of sight of his parents could climb in and pretend to be a vampire in his coffin. The ones at the Keystone were scaled to adult size. If they too opened for storage, I never saw it, but they were perfect perches for this new nocturnal life, where I could suck beers between feverish wild dances.

Paul Pena began playing in Bay Area clubs, opening shows at the Great American Music Hall and the Keystone in Berkeley for Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders. "We were friends," says Pena of Garcia. "I didn't know him well, but I knew him well enough for him to recognize me. I opened for him in the Keystone for around three years. As a matter of fact, that's how I started being able to work out here at all -- the first thing I did was call the Grateful Dead office."
Pena said of Keystone owner Freddie Herrera, "His idea of an audition was for me to come and open up for Garcia and Saunders. That went on for some time. Whenever he would have somebody, not knowing who would open, he would call me."
Saunders recalls Pena fondly. "A great player," he says. "I have always wanted to produce him." He remembers hearing Pena at the Keystone and being immediately struck by his talents. "I heard something from the back of the room, and I said, 'I gotta use this guy again.' "
In 1973 Pena was recording at Grossman's Bearsville Studios, and this time he had a sizable cast of musicians working with him: Jerry Garcia assisting on guitar, Merl Saunders on keyboards, a cappella soul singers the Persuasions on backup, and Ben Sidran, who had been playing with Steve Miller and Boz Scaggs since the early '60s, on piano.

Today in Berkeley, University Avenue still forms a T with Shattuck. The traffic still flows there, the same building still stands, and each night it is again thrust into the spotlight - except now it's a drug store and I shop in it to buy my razor blades and shaving cream. They're over on the east wall where we sat and drank our beers. Waiting at the register while the bar codes are scanned on my purchases leaves me standing exactly where the stage was. I can close my eyes for one second and a guitar is being played right above me, the girls are screaming just behind me, and the flaming cymbals are there on my left. The ghost ship of the Keystone refuses to go down. Sugaree still echoes in my head. I open my eyes, and then my wallet to pay for my stuff, with the knowledge that in spite of all I now see around me, rock and roll is not dead in here because I still care. As I'm saying "Have a good one," and accepting my change, I finally, but silently make my request in this place: "Let the music and the feelings of the Keystone live."
(excerpts from Howie Spielman)

Jerry performed here on
6/4/71 Merl Saunders/Grateful Dead (New Monk)
“The New Monk in Berkeley. The show had been advertised as a Jerry Garcia Band show but the Dead showed-up instead and they did all covers. This was the last time I saw Pigpen, he did not look good at all. This is my favorite show because 1) I can remember some of it and 2) it was totally unique for them. The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down and Johnny B. Goode are the two great tunes I remember them doing.”[21]

"I'd really appreciate getting a recording of that New Monk show, the only one I know of was made by Carlos and Jorge Santana, who my friend and I were sharing a joint with during the show."[22]

"Relix: Tell me about your first meeting with Ron?
Merl: I had just come back from New York in 1970 to the Haight-Ashbury where I used to live. I started to do some sessions with this guitar player named Jerry [Garcia]. I started hanging out at this club with Jerry and that is where I first met Pigpen. We only lived four blocks from each other. I had heard about Pigpen but I had never met him. My father [laughter] knew more about the Grateful Dead then(sic) I did. I was into Jimmy Smith and the Hammond Organ sound. Jerry and I started playing The Keystone in Berkeley and Ron and the rest of the guys would come down. Ron would sit in with us and I was always trying to get him to play keyboards. He would say “No, I just want to play my harmonica behind your organ playing.” That is how we got it going. We had actually discussed doing a thing together with piano, organ and harmonica. There was a little club off of Broadway in North Beach that was going to hire us, but unfortunately it never happened.
We liked playing together. Ron was responsible for me playing the organ on Bertha. He was truly a dear, soulful musician. He was the root of the band, playing the blues the right way. He was a very sweet guy. Very earthy and bluesy."[23]
The exact date of this event is unknown.

6/5/71 Merl Saunders (New Monk)
“One night [in 1971] I went to hear Jerry play a gig with Merl Saunders at a small place in Berkeley and one by one, for ‘no reason,’ the rest of the Dead showed up too, and eventually they got up on the stage and started playing. As Jerry says, they just liked to hang out together.”[20]
The exact date of this event is unknown.

6/26/71 Merl Saunders (New Monk)
Tom Fogerty started playing with Garcia and Saunders within DAYS of leaving Creedence. His first solo single Goodbye Media Man was released not under his own name, but under the name "17th of June 1971" the day he left Creedence Clearwater Revival. His first gig with Garcia-Saunders was just nine days later, on the 26th of June.[4]

New Monk was SRO and when they began playing, the crowd couldn't sit still. Garcia also did some singing. They got together some bluegrass, gospel and rock."(

6/27/71 Merl Saunders (New Monk)
"In 1971 at the New Monk in Berkeley, the venue was headed as Jerry Garcia and Friends. I remember about 10 of us including Jerry, Bob and Phil waiting for the doors to open, Bobby was going crazy freaking out drivers on the street (University Ave.) at a stop light. I remember one poor guy in a Porsche closing his windows and locking his doors. He (Bobby) was acting like an auctioneer trying to sell the cars to us. One of the funniest things I've ever seen. I'm not sure as to what influences may have been involved that evening. The concert was great. It included guys from NRPS and Asleep at the Wheel."[25]
The exact date of this event is unknown.

"A new development was advance tickets sold to a concert at New Monks. The room has been changed from a dance hall to a listening hall. The booths were taken out and added more sitting space and an improved sound system."[48]

"His habit at shows was also to go there LONG before the actual show - as Richard Loren said, "Jerry would be backstage at the Keystone hours before the gig. He'd get there at 3 or 4:00 in the afternoon for a 9:00 show. He'd sit backstage and play and get high and people would come in and he'd talk."[26]

"They were billed as The Group as I recall…very, very sweet show..played pool with Garcia between sets. Playing pool in between sets seemed like a natural thing at that time at that club...no backstage scene...he and the band just hung out in the back of the room space where the pool table was and the club only held maybe 2-300 people...in fact, after the show - when I went to get in our car, Garcia was parked right in front of us on University Avenue and was leaving at the same time (small little Volvo if I remember correctly)"[49]

Usually Steve Parish, a road crew member, would stand on the stage checking everything out.
"If everything were going well during the first song, he’d walk off the stage. But one time [at a Garcia Band show], he came off the stage; Jerry had just cranked into It Takes a Lot to Laugh, which he’d never done before at the Keystone, and it was one of those, “Oh, wow!” kind of things. But Parish walked up to us and cut the wires on all the decks."[46]

"So, this show “was like an old family reunion. The Rowan Brothers … opened the show … They closed their set with help from brother Peter supplying extra harmonies and unwarranted theatrics as he leapt and bounded all around the stage and finally jumped into the audience screaming while running to the back of the room.”[27]

“The band got off. Garcia occasionally smiled, letting his insides seep into his outsides and picking off some nasty pickin’ licks. Everybody in the band agreed that David Diadem was simply one of the hottest mandolin players around town … Halfway through the set The Rowan Brothers reappeared to help out on harmonies on an original tune appropriately titled Panama Red. It went off quite well but the best all around song was their ‘theme song’: Bill Monroe’s How Mountain Girls Can Love.”[27]

However, the Staska-Mangrum column from 11/2 listed it as JGMS (Staska, Kathie, and George Mangrum. 1973. Rock talk from KG: Country song goes to town.

The last complete OAITW show, and it only occurred as late as November 4th because of a rainout at Sonoma State on the initial date of October 7th.
"I was taking a leak in the bathroom and Jerry takes a place in front of the urinal next to time. I said those immortal words, "Jerry, I can't believe how big you are!"
Jerry gives me a look that registered surprise, disgust and dismay. You could also add shock. Then I said, looking plaintively into his eyes, hoping against all hope that I would not notice his penis: "What I mean, Jerry, is that when I see you at concerts, I usually see you from the nose-bleed seats where you appear to be about an inch tall."
Jerry took a noticeably deep breath of relief and looked straight ahead at the wall and continued pissing, probably in mixolydian scale. He said not a single word to me, and I know deep in my heart that he was praying that I would not ask him for an autograph.
I remember that I turned to the wall trying to control my creeping feeling of embarrassment. He finished his business and moved as quickly as he could to get away from this adoring fan. Which was me. After he left, I remember getting tripped out on the graffiti on the wall in front of me. Then I realized that in the excitement of meeting Jerry Garcia I had pissed all over my white boots with alligator tips."[42]

Jerry also performed at the Gymnasium at Sonoma State College, Rohnert Park, CA earlier on this date)

"With so much free music around on every street corner and spot of grass, why would anyone want to get packed into a crowded, smoke-filled room for three dollars a head and listen to store-bought music at the Keystone? There aren't many answers to this question, but the Jerry Garcia / Merl Saunders act is one of them, and it jammed us in last Saturday like cattle in a packing house. [Garcia] hides unobtrusively against the wall and leaves the stage to his band: bass, a single horn, Saunders' organ, normal percussion and, inexplicably, a bongo drum player."[30]

"While it's early history is murky, this tape came into the light in around late 1995. Grammy award-winning sound engineer (and lead guitarist of Dark Star Orchestra) Rob Eaton was called in to rescue music from a batch of tapes in very sorry shape, caked with mud and filth, boxes rotted away and illegible, etc. Eaton supplied DAT copies of all of the GD- and Garcia-relevant material to the then- GD Vault, whence it has presumably been sorted into the successor GD and Garcia Vaults. It came into circulation via the legendary Alligator. Who Alligator is and where he/she got these recordings is not known. But the important thing is that Alligator was responsible for bringing a number of key early Garcia tapes into the light xxx list of Alligator tapes.
This is a gorgeous recording by the justly-revered Betty Cantor-Jackson. Recall that these tapes were caked in mud and filth and had to be hand-cleaned, inch-by-inch with Q-tips, by Rob Eaton."[19]

3/1/75 Legion Of Mary
That's a Touch I Like, Second That Emotion
First documented instance of the use of the Legion of Mary moniker. The Oakland Tribune on 1/12/75, represents the earliest reference to the change of the Garcia/Saunders band into Legion of Mary, referencing upcoming shows on March 1-2, 1975.[61][73]

"As for the name: (It was) my idea, but it backfired on us,” John Kahn later told Blair Jackson, “We played our first gig under that name at the Keystone-Berkeley and these people showed up who were really part of this religious group called the Legion of Mary. I thought I’d made it up!” [68]

"Whenever I had some smoke that was really fantastic I would go to Keystone and ask the security guard if I could meet Jerry. Garcia treated me very kindly on those occasions. And as he sucked up the special stash I had brought personally for his consumption, he would crack jokes and act sincerely interested in who I was and what I was up to. We would chat briefly about the blues, jazz, classical music and R&B, and then I'd be on my way back to my table."[6]

"Louis Falanga and Bob Menke  came into the bar, went to the front, grabbed the table at Jerry's feet (right of center from the audience perspective) as soon as the doors opened. As the evening progressed, they would prepare cassette decks, presumably complete with fresh batteries. Cassettes would be opened, maybe labeled, made ready. Two separate microphones, a Sony ECM-250 and a newer Sony ECM-270, probably discrete while the lights are up. Lights go down, mics come out and are, apparently, placed onstage right in front of Garcia, one of them pointing into his stage monitor and the rest angled stage-center to catch the other players. You can hear the clinking of glasses, the low talk of the players onstage, the beautiful fuzz around the monitored guitar … so very much. Wonderful."[16]

Nicky Hopkins on piano, Ron Tutt on drums.[36]
Tim Hensley was the second keyboardist.[71]
"Hopkins kept up a dry banter with the crowd between numbers, acting loosely as the host, a cigarette constantly dangling from his lips. A second pianist being tried out over the weekend added little on electric keyboards except confusion. Hopkins, easily Garcia's equal on grand piano, was the bonus. His swirling melodies and tinkling keyboard work was full of brilliant surprises and twists."[36]

Nicky Hopkins last appearance with Jerry.
"The well-organized and short out-of-town gigs that the Garcia Band was doing seemed to work for him, but before long we started to notice an increase in his reliance on drugs and alcohol. I was amazed that a guy with a major intestinal disorder could pack in so much cocaine and booze, but it seemed to alleviate the symptoms of his affliction; either that or he was just so high he didn't notice them. His self-medicating started to affect his performance and create tensions with the band members, especially Ron, who was Nicky's polar opposite in both physical stature and personality. Nicky was a fragile, capricious Brit and a brilliant musician prone to going off the rails. Ron was a beefy, no-nonsense Texan and a brilliant rock-solid musician. Despite being worlds apart, they had gotten on well at first, but Ron, as the rhythmic center of the band, was intolerant of music inconsistencies. Nicky could be flamboyant, especially when he was [156] loaded, adding an extra beat here and there. These sometimes sloppy rhythmic fluctuations drove Ron crazy."[75]
The band had had it with Nicky. His drug and alcohol use debilitated him and made him impossible to work with."[75]

1/26/76 Jerry Garcia Band
Keith and Donna Godchaux's first show with the Jerry Garcia Band.[37]
"It was a long, narrow "club" (bar), with the "backstage" room being behind the bar area as one poster mentioned. Going back to use the bathrooms before a show I remember seeing Keith Godchaux playing pinball, and Jerry and the JGB inside the back room with the door open. When the band was ready, a bouncer would lead the way from the back room with a flashlight, past the bar and through the waiting crowd and cocktail tables, to the stage up front. I could sit on the long shelf along the right wall about six feet from Jerry as he played."[24]

"It was my honor and privilege to fly in from Nashville, to meet and perform with the band at Berkeley for a couple of nights. Rehearsal was held in a gorgeous house in the hills. I remember the band's brand new Porsche 911's, each a different color parked in the long wide drive. We breezed through the tunes with ease, and later relaxed at my motel room with "Red Carpet" treatment. The gigs were two hour-and-a-half long sets with forty-five minute breaks in which the fans stood around talking quietly waiting on the band to return to the stage. The place was packed and the loyalty of the Dead fans, especially to Jerry, was unbelievable. The first set was smoking hot with a great sound system, monitors that would shake your pant-legs. Being in my late twenties and exposed to the music world's outer edges, although not a novice to rock 'n roll's lifestyle, I noticed a half-dozen audience members' middle fingers missing from their right hands. I asked Ronnie about it and he said, "It was because they wanted to be like Jerry". I was shocked to the point of not wanting to be there. I told Jerry after we finished, thanks for the opportunity, but I didn't think the job is for me."[70]

First Reconstruction show.
"Kahn and Garcia had formed the band, along with keyboardist Merl Saunders, drummer Gaylord Birch, and saxophonist Ron Stallings. Neumeister recalls how he became part of the band, “I think they rehearsed once or twice and they decided they would get another horn player, so Stallings recommended me, and actually Ron called me. He said, ‘Yeah, we’ve got a gig on Saturday and we’re rehearsing Thursday. It’s just a door gig.’” Neumesiter knew who Garcia was but did not follow the Grateful Dead, “I had no idea to be honest the following that Jerry had. I showed up for that first gig and there were wall-to-wall people. It was at Keystone Berkley.”[69]

What was that roar I heard coming up to the stage.' And I said, 'Oh, that was when Jerry moved his leg!'" he laughs."[38]

The final Reconstruction performance.[34]
"Ed Neumeister met Garcia through the band Reconstruction in 1979. Kahn and Garcia had formed the band, along with keyboardist Merl Saunders, drummer Gaylord Birch, and saxophonist Ron Stallings. Neumeister recalls how he became part of the band, “I think they rehearsed once or twice and they decided they would get another horn player, so Stallings recommended me, and actually Ron called me. He said, ‘Yeah, we’ve got a gig on Saturday and we’re rehearsing Thursday. It’s just a door gig.’” Neumesiter knew who Garcia was but did not follow the Grateful Dead, “I had no idea to be honest the following that Jerry had. I showed up for that first gig and there were wall-to-wall people. It was at Keystone Berkley.”
The first time Neumesiter met Garcia was at the rehearsal for the performance at Keystone Berkley. He remembers that Jerry was “just a guy, just a guitar player.” As Neumesiter walked into the rehearsal room, John Kahn was the only person he knew at the time, so he “shook hands all the way around” before starting the rehearsal. He describes Jerry as “a very humble, just quiet guy.” The band consisted of “just five guys in a room having fun.” Neumesiter said that Garcia “never gave the aura of superiority in any kind of way even though he was the one drawing the crowd. There was no doubt about that…there was no ego involved. None of that superstar, whatever comes with being a superstar. I only noticed it when we showed up to the gigs. Jerry was just one of the cast. That’s what he wanted to be.”
Neumeister recalls Garcia’s dedication to music. “He practiced all the time, or at least he always had his guitar in his lap. He was playing all the time, so whenever we had a rehearsal, on the breaks or before it started, he was moving on the guitar. He played really 24/7 it seemed like.”
Neumeister recalls one specific instance of Garcia’s devotion to his craft during a recording session. Neumeister, who had written the horn arrangements for the session, was discussing the arrangements with Garcia, “He decided for the recording we would extend the horn section—trumpet, some trombones—and we actually double tracked some of it so it was six horns. Jerry sat in the recording studio and not in the booth, so he could hear the track being mixed with the horns. He sat in with the horns, and he was very, very focused and concentrated and extremely detail-oriented. You wouldn’t think this about Jerry sometimes, but he was looking for perfection. We were there until we got it absolutely perfect. He was really into it being really, really clean and tight. Of course that’s what you want but on the other hand you think of Jerry as being this loose improviser.”[1]

Johnny d'Fonseca's first show as drummer.[64]
"On Monday, October 1, Peter Rowan and The Free Mexican Air Force played the Keystone Palo Alto. The show was broadcast on KPFA-fm (out of Gilroy), as was every Monday night Keystone show, as part of their "Fat Fry" series. As it happened, I could just get a static-y KFAT in my Berkeley apartment, so I heard it live (and recorded it too, though it was a lousy copy).
Rowan played a 90-plus minute set, joined for most of the show by the great David Bromberg, whose wife Nancy was also the FMA bass player at the time. At some point, I think near the end of the show, a dj introduced the band, and when he got to Ozzie Ahlers, he said "and Ozzie will be part of the new Jerry Garcia Band, who will be playing the Keystone Palo Alto in a few weeks." This mention was the first I heard of the fact that the Jerry Garcia Band would be back, and that Ozzie Ahlers would be playing keyboards."[33]

"Jeff Knudsen: "This show popped up out-of-the-blue. I got a phone call-- remember, there was no internet, no texting, no PMs, just the 'Pink Section' (if you remembered to look at it). My friend says, 'Didja hear? Fat Jerry gonna play Berkeley on Saturday.' 'GTF outta here-- only one night?' 'Yep' 'OMG!' (used to be called 'Oh My Gawd') So off we went. I just blew all my $$$ on Chico, Arcata and Garberville and now he has his hands in my pocket-- yet again![40]

"I also remember this show because of the more than usual number of Hell's Angels. They had taken over the upstairs portion of that venue and while they didn't say so, it seemed like no one else was allowed up there that night. maybe it was just something i ate but i recall it being quite tasty."[41]

"One of the interesting things was that the stage was in the front of the building (facing away from the street) and the dressing rooms were in the back. Band members had to walk back and forth through the crowd. Would hoot, holler & pat Jerry on the back as he passed."[2]

  1. The band dressing room was behind the bar so Garcia and other musicians had to walk out through the crowd and take the half step up to the stage. It was all very intimate.
