Just for the Fun of it

Hi folks. I loathe modern commercial music--hate every last bit of it. I can't stand indie--that cheesy corny cornball stuff. My favorite period was 69' through 76' with 73' through 75' being the peak of good rock.

Anyway, I am a concept album junkie--loved the albums Wish You Were Here, The Wall, 2112, Caress of Steel, Hemispheres, Relayer, Tales from Topographic Oceans, Welcome to my Nightmare, Tommy, Quadrophenia, and some others I can't think of.

I am not in a band--don't plan to be. It would be fun but I am too busy with work & family life. My hobby is playing 2 guitars: nylon classical & fender strat. I used to be a humbucker fan but after getting a strat with overwound tex mex single-coil pickups, I fell in love with it.

Anyway, I recently purchased one of these digital multi-track recorder thingies with built-in drums. With this little box, I can pretty much be my own band. I am working on a concept type album for fun that will be divided into "parts" and follow a story line similar to Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony 6. Yes, it will climax to a violent thunderstorm, musically speaking. Part 1 begins with the Overture to Night. It will have classical guitar, strat with various clean & distortion tones, keyboard with various tones, bass, and the digital drums. It will be wet and swampy with reverb. I have no idea when I will finish. Part 2 is complete with Parts 1, 3, and 4 still being modified and re-recorded.

Last Days of the Dead---Song

I am a longtime songwriter/musician from the midwest. My band is the Derelicks. We've been around a long time but don't get out much. We have a song on our latest CD (our 4th)called, "Trouble at the Circus". It's a story song about the last days of the Dead with Jerry Garcia (summer of 1995). I was hoping to get some feedback from Dead Heads and other fans. I have recieved some positive opinions from some in the Dead Head community. The song is available (free download) at: www.thederelicks.com...Any feedback is always welcome....TC/derelicks

New Dead tribute Band - Western Massachusetts - Gig Saturday

Hi, All! I have a new Dead tribute band and we're playing on Saturday in Auburn, MA. We're doing a pretty faithful recreation of the late 70's to early 90's Dead sound. Details of the show and recordings from our previous show are at www.fennario.us.

Please let me know what you think! I'm the bass player so any tips on being a better Phil would be appreciated!

My Music

I have been playing guitar and writing music since 1966. I am now putting together a new band and we are about to record a CD together. I play an acoustic-electric guitar and sing; I will have a bass and flute player and am still looking for a percussionist. My musical style is pretty much my own, but the Grateful Dead are one of my influences. In fact, I am arranging the mechanical rights so I can include a version of Franklin's Tower on the CD. I have also recorded a CD of originals in a rock style; I played all the instruments on that one. Songs can be heard at my website, which is listed below.
