Hi i have a few new tunes

Hi i have a few new tunes and remixes of the older ones on my page now.

The tunes are all tributes to the Dead except for On the Road which is more of a breeze through the beat scene etc (brief and not in depth but I think catchy) and Memphis Hideaway is more inspired by the Dead scene that a tribute to the band.

I hope you enjoy them.

Merry Christmas all!

July, 2007 marked the release of Will King's solo album, Come on in from the Cold. Featuring twelve Americana-twinged tracks, special guests include Grammy nominated John Cohen [The New Lost City Ramblers, and recently featured in Martin Scorsese's documentary on Bob Dylan, No Direction Home]. Cohen, who has been said to have served as inspiration for the Grateful Dead's "Uncle John's Band," plays mandolin and sings on the title track.

John Ventimiglia [Artie Bucco, The Sopranos] co-wrote "28 Days," and sings on the title tracks refrain.Other guests include Drummer Doug Yowell [Suzanne Vega, The Dragonflys], bassist Saul Zonana [Ace Frehley, Luv Junkies] and vocalist RJ King.

Dead/JGB covers

Wow hip forum topic!

I've got some vids posted up on of mainly Dead related cover tunes (acoustic). I'm not that great at guitar - but am woodshedding with a teacher right now and making some progress. Hopefully in the next year or so I will have some Electric attempts posted as well.

Always looking for constructive feedback and local heads to jam with.

The JFP (Music of Jerry Garcia)

"Coming together in 2006, the JFP is the melting pot for so many different styles of music. Rock, jazz, funk, soul, R&B, blues, folk, reggae...., it's all there."

New Sounds Online

"We cover some of the greatest songs of all time.", says Jason Ferguson, guitarist and vocalist for the JFP. "And though we pay heavy homage to Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders in the way we arrange our material, it's really tough to pin us down to any one style. It's not hard to describe what we're actually doing, I say first and foremost, we're a rock & roll band."

Besides covering songs by American and International artists such as Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, The Rolling Stones, Marvin Gaye, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Cliff and Van Morrison, the JFP digs back deep into the catalogues of these greats to pull out their lesser known material.

"We give the flops the royal treatment too.", says Gregory Smith, bassist and vocalist.

Jason adds, "We're like a rescue and salvage operation. When I go to a record store looking for material I go into the back, or look under the shelves, you know what I mean?"

With an equal blend of the jam sensibility of bands like The Grateful Dead and The Allman Brothers, and the lockstep tightness along the lines of Little Feat and The Funky Meters, the JFP brings back the obscure songs that built the foundation for today's popular music. Carefully crafting their interpretation of these songs has given the JFP a sense of freedom, and along with that freedom comes those magical musical moments where chances are taken, and where an old tune can sound brand new.....
