Blue Roses appear through­out his­tory in art, lit­er­a­ture and in one iconic 1978 con­cert poster, as a sym­bol of love, hope and faith. But, in real life blue roses don’t actu­ally exist. Genet­i­cally no one has man­aged to crack the code and pro­duce a true blue rose, or have they?

On Febuary 8, 2014, our com­mu­nity lost a great friend in Joe Capone. For those of us lucky enough to have known Joe, we had an authen­tic blue rose in our midst. Joe was that guy that knew how good life was and reminded you often. Any­time you asked Joe how he was doing his answer was always, sim­ply “liv­ing the dream…”. He knew how pre­cious life was and he embraced it.

To honor Joe’s life, incred­i­bly well-lived and chock full of love and giv­ing back, we’re assem­bling some amaz­ing musi­cal tal­ent for the inau­gural Blue Rose Ball where we’ll rock and roll and cel­e­brate Joe’s pas­sion for life and music. We’ll also do some real good for the com­mu­nity and raise money to help give more chil­dren a chance to get a jump-start on a great edu­ca­tion by intro­duc­ing the Joseph Capone Schol­ar­ship Fund at the Old Adobe School in Sonoma, California.

We have gath­ered together an incred­i­ble line-up of world-class musi­cians who have embraced the mes­sage of the evening and the leg­endary artist Stan­ley Mouse, has gra­ciously agreed to pro­duce one more blue rose con­cert poster in honor of the evening. Stan­ley pro­duced many of the iconic images that sym­bol­ized an era and he has lent us his clas­sic blue rose image that once graced the poster for the last show at Win­ter­land on Decem­ber 31, 1978. The fea­tured acts that night were the Grate­ful Dead, the Blues Broth­ers and the New Rid­ers of the Pur­ple Sage. (pic­tured below)
