PAN and The Goddamns!

While everyone in the band can pick up a guitar and play a bunch of Dead tunes...this band is more jazz/Tom Waits influenced than anything. We'd love for you to come give a listen!

we're going by the name The

we're going by the name The Monterey Jacks.
we're a three piece rock band from California.
when we play live, we've done a few of the Dead's tunes (close to the only covers we do), but rehearsing we're always playing their stuff. stella blue, the eleven (which we do with zeppelin's four sticks, which is in 5 and 6... which adds up to 11!) , loser, deal, mr charlie, the other one, etc... i bought this great fender amp and about a month later learned it was a newer model very similar to something Jerry Garcia used to use. so that's kept me in a good mood for a long time.

Strange Trip

Strange Trip is a 5 piece band out of Atlanta, GA. Thier influences include (but not limited to) the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Santana, Phish and Ratdog. Add a little splash of Southern rock and a few drops of country and you've got Strange Trip.
Strange Trip is comprised of veteran rhythm guitarist Allen Peacock (Blue Rufus, Rainbow Zen), bassist Ken Dunn (Simply Southern), guitarist Ryan Kumar, up and coming vocalist Jessica Stanley and drummer Danny Waller (Simply Southern). Peacock,the product of the early '90's Philadelphia music scene, anchors this ecclectic Quintet, whose age range goes from 25 - 40. Dunn & Waller, who bring a southern edge to the table, honed thier skills for many years in the Metro-Atlanta club staple Simply Southern. At the ripe age of 25, Kumar conjurs up thoughts of Jerry Garcia with the technician-like chops of Trey Anastasio. While Stanley adds her heady high harmonies to complete the package.

I have a request for my fine

I have a request for my fine fellow Dead forum ladies and gents..........

A local public radio station called WYCE who supports local bands has an online vote for their awards ceremony called "The Jammie Awards". This is the 10th year and one of the projects I'm involved with is up for awards in a few catagories, the biggest being a peoples choice for best local album and best new band. The band I'm involved with is called "The Lynn Thompson Band". This year WYCE is doing an online vote for the big award, which The Lynn Thompson Band is up for.

A little backstory on the local music scene here in Grand Rapids is that it has become very cliqueish over the last few years and it's really tough to get gigs and publicity here, especially if the band plays mostly original music. A very select group of bands seem to have a monopoly on the local scene and it would be great to see a total underdog band (such as The Lynn Thompson Band) win., if anyone has a couple of spare seconds while browsing this, go to the link below to WYCE and vote for (the) Lynn Thompson Band. If you have multiple email addresses, vote again and urge any friends and family with a spare couple of seconds to do the same.

This is the link.....

Finally have myspace page w/ MP3's - comments and friends wanted

Hi Everybody,

I finally have a myspace page any comments and friend requests are appreciated. I've been a Grateful Dead fan or "deadhead" since the mid 80's or so and never could get enough. I'm also a active trader and did some taping of GD and other bands, so if anybody wants to trade that's cool with me. I'm interested in getting some contacts with anybody REAL in the music biz/established recording labels. I'm currently in the process of recording a original pop/rock project that hopefully will be released by summer 2009. Eventually, I will have some original material on myspace but I need to have it applied for copyright before upload. Many thanks in advance to anybody who takes the time to visit my "myspace" (FYI: there is no studio tricks on the recordings, no pitch correction, most tracks recorded live except "If I needed someone" has a overdubbed guitar solo.)

here's the link:

theCAUSE's newest stuff...

I posted on this thread about the band...but just wanted to lay down some links to our newest stuff. We recently 'broke out' "Lazy Lightning" > "Supplication" for the first time. We've been working on it for a good while and I think the rehearsal paid decide. Also another gem from a magical night at The Thunderbird Cafe 11/29/08.

Lazy Lightning > Supplication:
