On Monday my friend and I are going to have a jam/recording session. We are huge deadheads and have been jamming for a while. We thought it was time to honor the dead. Here are the tracks we are going to attempt to cover.
Ramble on Rose
Viola Lee Blues
Dennisw from DNC here. We're nose down working on our next album, and have been previewing tracks on our Facebook and website. If you "Like" the Facebook page you'll get access to free downloads, etc. http://facebook.com/voodooloons
Also just loaded brand new songs, old songs, alt mixes, outtakes, experimental tracks, etc. to the free stream on the website. Just lick the Loons Radio link towards the right. http://voodooloons.com/sounds.html
Finally, if you're in the Midwest we'll be playing a big St. Paddy's Day show at the historic Southgate House in Cincinnati. Lots of great music on the bill, give us a shout if you're int eh area.
you can email me at illuminoidal at mac dot com, or drop me a note via dead net
But I'd love to collaborate with some other Dead scholars on a covers band that included a good number of Dead tracks. I sing, I play passable acoustic guitar. Don't have a whole lot of gear, just a whole lotta love for the music. No, I don't have a myspace page. If you're near Long Beach (California), let's meet up for a listening party and see if we are interested in a collaboration. This is not intended to be a big touring band or get on a label, just music for music's sake in my local area.

I'm new to these forums, but I've been a deadhead for about 16 years now - ever since I got Dicks Picks Vol II when I was 16. Anyhow, I've got a band in England called Special Preserve, and we play music that we jam on - kind of bluesy country funk. We've just finished some new recordings, so check em out if you have a minute at www.myspace.com/specialpreserve
Hope you like em!

By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean.
We have a show Nov 13 (Sat) at the Oasis Pub in Charleston SC.
We are a punk/fast sounds band that does Grateful Dead covers. Nothing but. Not hardcore, more like the Dickies, Adicts or Dead Milkmen. Kinda sounds like the Ramones doing Dead songs. No songs are over three minutes, no guitar solos, no jams. It's a fun time, not alot of screaming at people.
Band name - Wake of The Blood - (It's a play on their Wake of the Flood record)
Here are some YouTube's . We don't have a demo yet.
