As Dead & Company prepares to kick off their 2019 summer tour, HeadCount has shared a sneak peek at the custom D’Angelico guitars and pin they’ll have on hand at each stop on the tour at Participation Row, their traveling community action village.
Since 2015, Dead & Co Participation Row guitar and poster auctions have generated over $875,000 for various charities, with proceeds split between HeadCount, REVERB and a dozen “Dead Family” non-profit organizations. When including recent online raffles, the total is more than $1 million.
Fans have also taken more than 35,000 positive actions on Participation Row. If you take action on Participation Row you’ll be able to take home the Dancing Bears VOTE Pin courtesy of Schulman Lobel. Check out this year’s Participation Row pin below:
Joining Participation Row for the first time this year is HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project, an initiative that engages voters in important local elections surrounding marijuana legalization. Cannacraft will also be on Participation Row to support the Cannabis Voter Project in their efforts. Dead & Company drummer Mickey Hart is among the many musicians who have come out in support of the Cannabis Voter Project. Check out what he had to say about the initiative below.
I am a cannabis voter! If you are too, check out @headCountOrg‘s @Cannabis_Voter Project on #ParticipationRow. They’ll be at all four @DeadAndCompany shows in California, and they’ll help you tell elected officials where you stand on cannabis! pic.twitter.com/hOWZjxLmjZ
