kind musicians in Kansas City?

19 year old guitarist (singer/songwriter) in Kansas City, MO

Looking to form original sounding folk/bluegrass/psychedelic jam band

Looking for rythm guitar, drums/percussion, bass, keys,possibly violin, banjo, mandolin, etc.

Influenced by bluegrass,down home country,and spaced-out psychedelia: allman brothers, grateful dead, phish, string cheese incident, widespread panic, YMSB, HBR, Keller, Pink Floyd, STS9 etc.

Must not have a problem with open-ended jamming/long improvisations (musical conversations) and GROOVIN.


I write lots of original material, but am not a control freak; I encourage absolute equality among bandmembers, collaboration and for others to bring material in with them if they'd like.

If you'd just like to jam a few times to just see how it goes, maybe go from there, that's fine by me.

Age doesn't matter, I'm 19 and I don't judge so I ask the same in return.

Jam and the Playground Kids

Hello everyone i', john i play bass in Jam and the Playground kids. We are a band based out of nort central illinois trying to spread our wings and start traveling spreading our music. Here is a paragraph describing JPK.
Jam and The Playground Kids is a unique blend of crowd energy and original creativity. They use the crowd to fuel their artistic visions, making for an explosive experience for both the band and the crowd alike. This energetic mix opens the gates for improvasational music and intence spinning, jumping,and dancing that everyone gets into. There's always that excitement whenever they play and neither the band or the crowd knows what to expect next! Although the Band enjoys showing respect to all musicians and genre's who have influenced them, they concentrate mostly on original material and spreading good insight and love to everyone who witnesses them play. Come see this musical conconction and good time infusion for yourself! ENJOY
you can check out where and what we played @
I hope to see some of you cats from the chicago area in our crowd

Charlotte musicians wanted for jamming

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.

Stringtown Pickers

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.

Any Midwest folks?

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.

If my words did flow........
