On March 29 and 30 in Eugene, Ore., Zane Kesey & The Merry Pranksters will join forces will New Jersey-based jamband One-Eyed Jack and others to raise money for the restoration of the original Furthur bus. 

As many know, Furthur was a mythic vehicle from the psychedelic ’60s, carrying Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters around the country, as chronicled by Tom Wolfe in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. According to a press release, “The bus had since fallen into disrepair but it is now being restored with the help of restoration experts and artists.  Proceeds from both nights will go directly to the Furthur Down the Road Foundation, a nonprofit, charitable organization, dedicated to restoring the bus and continuing Ken Kesey’s legacy.”

Adds One-Eyed Jack guitarist Joe Boris. “Furthur is a symbol of personal freedom and pure joy. We’re proud to be supporting this cause so the original bus can continue to be a source of inspiration to future generations.”

The event will take place at WOW Hall in Eugene, Ore. and tickets are on sale now.
