The 70 guitars were donated by the artists, then auctioned and raised approximately $400,000.00 for local charities! In December ‘09, Brevard’s Beachside Resident magazine ran a three page article on John’s artwork, and had him design a Holiday themed cover featuring Bob Dylan.
At Melbourne’s KING CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS, John’s photos from various concerts from the past two years permanently grace the walls in the venue’s hallways.
This summer John’s photo was used on the cover of FREEBO’s newest CD “Something to Believe”, and he is currently wrapping up illustrations for a book written for children of all ages, called “Bud The Spud”. Written by local writer Adam Bryn Tritt, the book will go into national publication later this year!
………………………………………………………………….. “Another Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll Art & Photography Exhibition” will coincide with the major concert event HIPPIEFEST 2011 and the CLASSIC ALBUMS LIVE SERIES at The King Center.
New from PhanArt in 2011 is our weekly Friday Feature: This Week in PhanArt History. Each piece of art we share is from days of Phish in the past, typically from the 1.0 and 2.0 eras, something of note that fans of all ages can appreciate that is featured in the book PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish, with some commentary on the piece by PhanArt Pete.
For our first piece, we go back to 1999, 11 years ago for the most epic Phish New Years Eve ever. ‘Java’ John Goldacker made this poster for the 12/30-31/99 shows on the Big Cypress Indian Reservation in Florida.
Small fishes adorn the written Phish at the top, with a fish dotting the i. The banner of Big Cypress frames the Cypress Tree that features the silhouettes of the band members very carefully drawn into the branches and leaves. Behind the tree are the sun and the moon, highlighting and symbolizing the day->night nature of the shows and the midnight to sunrise set of the band to ring in the new millennium.
Some of you may know, many probably have not heard yet…..
My lovely wife Jennifer has been quite ill for about a month and a half now, with what seemed like a horrible eye infection, and some bad stomach issues.
After 2 visits to her Doctor, 3 visits to an Ophthalmologist, one visit to her Oncologist,lots of bloodwork, 1 full body PET scan, and 2 MRIs (with one more coming), it seems like we are finally getting some answers.
It looks like Jen is going to have to undergo probably around six months of chemotherapy (and maybe radiation), again. They’ve located some bone lesions, and a few more possible issues that are probably the cause of her
recent ailments and exhaustion. We hope to have all of the answers by the end of the week.
Being a TWO-TIME cancer survivor, it is nearly impossible for her to get insurance. So, as you can imagine the bills are already stacking up!

After a short hiatus, the 7th installment of the very popular local tribute to the late Jerry Garcia makes it’s long awaited return.
Born of an idea by co-creators (“Java” John Goldacker, and “Grateful” Dave Grooms) to pay tribute to the Grateful Dead frontman, JERRY DAZE began in the fall of 1999 at Java John & Jen’s KOOL BEANZ Coffeehouse. The very successful event ran three years before Kool Beanz closed. The event was so popular, that fans clamored for more! So, the event continued on in different venues for the next 3 years with the same excitement and success.
This year we have many new faces, and a very special treat with TONI BROWN joining us. For 20 years ( 1980-2000) Toni was Publisher and Editor of Relix magazine, an eclectic music publication focused on the Deadhead Community and “intelligent music alternatives.”
She sold the magazine to focus on her music career, and this year published “RELIX: The Book!“, a beautiful chronicle of her time with the famed magazine.
Live Music by: Dave & The DeadBeats, New Gravity, Old Friends in the Way, Ungrateful Buskers, and more…..!
Special Guests: Toni Brown & Ed Munson-Folk Rock & RELIX: The Book Art Exhibit.
