Carolyn Ferris is a surrealistic artist, living in Fairfax, California. She has worked on computer since the mid-nineties mostly with Photoshop. She began her career as a painter and illustrator in 1984. She worked with Timothy Leary over a span of about six years, illustrating for some of his books and working on inter-active paintings with him. In 1997, she created her first rock poster for Prodigy at The Warfield. Thereafter, she produced Fillmore posters as well as designed for some favorite groups such as David Nelson Band and Santana. Carolyn joined the incredible Moonalice poster artist pool in 2009; within it, she finds sanctuary with great music, adventure, and the ability to create her surrealistic worlds for a purpose. She is currently an artist and a volunteer newsletter editor for the Rock Poster Society, a non-profit all volunteer organization consisting of rock poster collectors, dealers, artists, and enthusiasts.

Steve Parish was never one to walk the straight-and-narrow, even during his childhood growing up in Flushing Meadow, Queens. Busted as a teenager for selling acid in the summer of 1968, Parish landed in Riker’s Island. The experience changed him and after getting out he did his best to stay out of trouble, securing a job moving music equipment at the New York State Pavilion. The first show he worked was a Grateful Dead concert in July of 1969 and Parish was captivated by the music. A life seemingly headed nowhere had suddenly found its calling as he fell in quickly with a band of likeminded misfits who formed the nucleus of what would be the greatest road crew in rock ‘n’ roll history.Parish traveled to California where his apprenticeship began. Working for the band for free and learning his craft, Parish got to know Jerry, Bobby, Phil, Billy and Mickey and through the years their relationships forged an unbreakable bond. He became very close with Garcia in particular, acting as his personal roadie and later manager for his solo performances and Garcia Band shows. He was there during times of trouble (like when a pimp held Garcia hostage at gunpoint in a New York hotel room), spending hours by his bedside when Garcia was in a coma in 1986, and performing the duties of best man at his wedding. He was also the last friend to see Garcia alive.
