Hey good people,
Very kind forum!

this is a pretty cool forum to see what other people are playing, so I figured I'd put this here if anyone is interested...there is a couple of songs I recorded a few years ago, with a group of guys here in Boston, Brookline to be exact. Here is the link:

I have been playing in a Dead band in Blacksburg, Va (the home of VA Tech) since 1986 called The Kind. We formed at my 20th birthday party as the band we had scheduled to play found themselves in a state unable to perform so I grabbed some buddies and we took the stage. Now we are approaching our 24th anniversary and my 44th birthday - yikes! Our only goal was and is to have fun playing music. We have had a handful of lineup changes over the years I and the rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist Wendy Godley are the only founding members that still play regularly. We have had a bunch of really talented folks come and go (and come back). We do a reunion show every summer at the Port O'Call in the Outer Banks of NC - we have as many former and current players as we can get together and put on one hell of a show. Folks coming in from as far as San Francisco and Hawaii to do these shows. We have gotten to play with some other great folks over the years including David Gans - who sat in at a gig at the Underground on Howard St in San Fran. Jerry Abrams (of Head Lights) joined us with trippy light shows and congas on some shows in SF that summer (1987). Robin Sylvester from RatDog played a couple of shows with us in Blacksburg and at the OBX reunion shows (he played guitar and keyboards - and is great at both and a great guy). We have opened for Rick Danko, Jefferson Starship, New Riders, Hot Tuna and a few others over the years.
Our current lineup features me, Wendy Godley, Rick Godley (drums), Danny Dunlap (guitar, synth, vocals), Mandy Cash (vocals) Steve "Slash" Hunt (bass) - also Greg Bump (bass). Slash is a monster bass player and toured with Bob Margolin for years (Bob was Muddy Waters' guitar player for the last 8 years of his life and is standing next to him in "The Last Waltz"). Former members include Mark McLeod (rhythm guitar, vocals) who is now teaching economics at Penn St, and Tom Lehman (bass), and Tim Taylor (drums) - Tim lives on the Big Island of Hawaii and plays with Hawaiians Unlimited and competes in triathlons.

I've played guitar, sang, &/or drummed in rock'n'roll cover bands, original rock bands, blues bands, jazz combos, bluegrass groups, & even orchestras & string ensembles. Currently I'm
playing in a church band, sometimes drums, sometimes guitar, always singing. I've tried to get the other musicians in the band interested in doing some dead-inspired extended jams during prayers & other parts of the service, but so far not much interest.
