My band is Wally and the Paupacks. We can't divulge who exactly Wally is, but either way we'd love to have you on board as part of Wally nation.
Please stop by http://wallyandthepaupacks.com/ and give Wally Radio a listen or two. Hey, if you're from the Scranton PA area we could even add you to the radio. More info at the site.
Anyone having some ideas of what auto-wah Jerry used, please pass it on to me.
I created a band a few months back with one of my best buddies, and we decided on a name for the band. But whoever was to be the singer in the band had there name in the un-official band name, nobody wanted to be the singer, so me playing lead guitar took up singing also. So, in about one week, Ryan Moore and the Merry Pranksters was born.
Well, I have a very strange taste in music. I listen to about everything, but of course anything Dead related would be what I am most interested in. It' very hard to develop a sound that revolves around the Grateful Dead, Tool, Sunn O))), Sage Francis, Into The Moat, and other various non-relating bands.
So, as we write material and record things, I intend to push the musical genre not into one direction, but what seems to be in all directions at once.
We are currently recording our first song, it's coming along very smoothly and once we upload to a site I will post the link on here. Hopefully, everyone will enjoy it.
Had to write a song for the times as the media and the constant barage
of all the news and the blues and the holes in my walkin' shoes kept me up
night after night until I got this out of my system...so we hit the streets and played our hearts out...and now I'm ready for the changes in times.
Have a look if you have a notion...
Me and J went out and jammed it up on Main street.

Inch your way through dead dreams to another land"

After way too long working on it my music website is up with two albums for your listening and more to come relatively soon.
Drop in and listen if you are so inclined. There is a forum if you would like to pipe up a suggestion or whatnot-I haven't listened to all the songs since being uploaded so let me
know if you notice any problems.
My Myspace site has also been updated with a new song and all the other songs that were on it have been remixed and should sound a little tighter.
Here is my music site http://www.myspace.com/bruceshakmanoverdrive
The first few songs were professionally recorded at Prairie Sun Recording Studio in Cotati CA. and it's modern rock. I sing and play some guitar. The last couple are acoustic and are more like Beatlesque. They were recorded in my basement.peace and good listening. bruce
Greetings from Canada,
If you are interested in some really pure sound, I perform with Paiste Gongs now numbering over 30, Quartz Crystal Bowls and Vibraphone. I perform as much as the Dead did back in the day with over 100 concerts a year here in Canada. I hope to tour the east coast in April after attending the first 8 shows of the Dead tour.

...are some of my biggest musical and philosophical influences. If you want to check out something new, yet familiar, pay me a visit at...
I play original Dead fusion...folk, rock, country, blues and jazz infused with 40 years of Dead influence. I currently sing and play guitar as a duet with guitarist Ed Munson, but also have a variety of great musicians to play with when I'm on the road. I most recenty have been sitting in with Donna Jean and the Tricksters, Crazy Fingers, and several local bands.
We're heading back into the studio as soon as I finish my latest project, Relix: The Book. I was the magazine's publisher from 1980-2000.
Here are a couple of home movies from our recent recording of our new CD which is set to be released in February. Recordings done at Seastrand Productions Nashville. Enjoy!
