Meyer Sound’s LEOPARD PA Delivers the Sound of the Summer of Love in Golden Gate Park
More than 40 Bay Area musicians performed the songs of the Summer of Love at the Surrealistic Summer Jam in Golden Gate Park. The San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers hosted the free concert that drew close to 20,000 on June 21. Produced by Dawn Holliday Productions with a musical program curated by Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz of ALO and Roger McNamee of Moonalice, the evening celebrated the sounds and lights of the fabled Summer of Love 50 years ago.
Many of the artists who originally provided the soundtrack to 1967 performed, including David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service, Norman Greenbaum of Spirit in the Sky fame, Lester Chambers of The Chambers Brothers and Time Has Come Today, and bass legend Jack Cassady of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna. Lebo and Roger led the Moonalice house band for the ultimate 60s jam session.
We partnered with the event organizers and McCune Audio/Video/Lighting to provide the sounds of San Francisco over a LEOPARD PA system. John and Helen attended and enjoyed a few flashback moments to their own Summer of Love when they met 50 years ago.
