I am interested in meeting Charlotte, NC area deadheads who are musicians and are interested in informal jamming. I have been playing electric/acoustic 6-string guitar with a little pedal steel for the past 40 years (which makes me an old man at age 53!) and frequently play outdoors in Freedom Park on Saturdays with a portable battery-operated rig.
I'm no professional, but after 40 years how bad could I be? Contact me and maybe we can jam.
My band is the Stringtown PIckers. We have been at it for about 7 years and 4 of us are pretty hard core heads. It is hard to find a good banjo player that gave up a decade to follow the dead and others, and we haven't found that guy yet. But, our guy can pick a little bit. We started out doing a lot of dead covers, but now we only do Friend, and even that is ripping fast. Hope you enjoy it.
I play percussion in an Ann Arbor, MI based band called Treetown Underground. All of our members have been influenced by the Dead in one way or another. We are a mix of jazz, bluegrass, folk, funk, samba, klezmer, and more. We begin recording our first album in September. If there's anyone in the Midwest (or anywhere else for that matter) looking to trade gigs, please let me know.

Will check it out ...pretty busy right now though.....keep on rockin'!
...of 'A Tall Tale'.....just a bit of a remix.
I just got back the mixed and mastered version of my first CD, and I'm looking for some help - from parents, mainly, but really from anyone who remembers what it's like to be a kid.
What I'm looking for are short (1 paragraph or less) quotes about my music to go in my press kit. The CD is called Everyday Things, and it is family- and kid-oriented folk rock, but I've also seen some grownups without kids grooving to the songs when I perform them.
In return, I'll send you some merchandise - right now we are doing t-shirts, stickers, toys, and CD singles. I'll be able to get some cool stuff out to you in about a month.
What I'd like you to do is to go to my website, chipwithrow.com, or myspace.com/chipwithrow, and have a listen. Better still, if you have children, have them listen with you. Then, if you like what you hear, send me your short review to email@example.com. If you don't want me to use your name in the press kit, I'll just do something like first name or what part of the country you're from.

Just thought I'd post an update.
I played last week with some old cohorts at the oregon country fair and an unexpected guest by the name of Billy Kreutzmann sat in on drums!
I immediately whipped out my notepad that contained my list of "things to do before I die" and abruptly scratched off # 37, "Jam with Billy Kreutzmann"
Just thought you'all would like to know.
I'm at soundclick.com/bandylou and myspace.com/bandylou.
my music takes some inspiration from Aoxomoxoa/Workingman's era Dead, among other sources. The Dusty creaky folky side of things.
