I've been playing bass with these guys since May and while the summer was very very hectic, we're taking it kinda easy right now. However, look for more tours to both coasts in the spring and the summer will likely be more madness.
We will be at the Emerald Cup in Humboldt in December as well as some other NoCal venues. If you do come by, please, please do say hello!
Peace and good jams to all!
Hey I play in this band called Ultraviolet Hippopotamus. We're from Michigan, play the midwest. We just got a new recording on archive.org check it out, right a review if you got the time. Peace.
jammin an' a singin fer ya
My name is Dave Kopec and I play lead guitar and sing for Franklin Turnpike. We've been jamming for many a long year. Our highlights include sharing the stage with Hot Tuna, Commander Cody, Tom Constanten, New Riders of the Purple Sage, God Street Wine, and the David Nelson Band.
We can count Jason Crosby, Bernie Reilly, and Joe Russo as our jam-mates as well. With Jason's awesome band I have had the priviledge of playing with Richie Cannatta, Walter King, Shannon McNally, Derek Trucks, Jeff Sipe, Oteil Burbridge, and Dave Diamond, among others. I'm also playing 5 string banjo and madolin with my bluegrass band: The Ramapo Mountain Boys. The bluegrass bug has bit me hard and will never let go. We are based out of Bergen County in New Jersey so if you want to check us out, jam out, or hang out, contact me through www.myspace.com/franklinturnpike.
Talented 17 year old guitarist. www.myspace.com/ldhamrock. Looking for serious musicians! Love the grateful deads wonderful music!
I am a horn player-trumpet in West of Boston, Massachussets area...I have been working on my chops (had not played for 15 or more years!) and am getting good enough to at least sit in with a band that may cover
Dead, J. Garcia Band, Santana, Gato Barbieri, Clapton etc.
Oddly found a great niche playing to a lot of JGB blues based stuff..parroting and improvising
of Jerry's voice and leads and parroting lots of Santana leads with improv...it actually sounds pretty amazing in my big ass living room... will record and post later...but
I do Senor, Simple Twist of Fate, I Shall be Released, Masterpiece..hell I could
probably sit in with Rat Dog as they have no trumpet....Bobby you reading this..if I get a reply
I will bring it with me to Hampton Beach Rat Dog show in a Heart Beat (course I guess
Hunter should be first on the list as well as Lesh as they BOTH Play the trumpet- Yep you
have not been keeping up if you dunno that--Lesh most know but Hunter has it on his blog--heck
he even wrote me once--i am not worthy!)..
..lets do Senor (tales of Yankee power) by Bob Dylan..one of my favs...
"if the Thunder don't get ya then the lightning will!"- The Wheel
"Gonna find out something only dead men know" - Silvio
Class of Red Rocks '79...
Life without the Dead is not life...and so we carry on...
"..one good thing, one good thing, when it hits you feel no pain..."
LISTEN UP! see www.rockmitzvah.com This is more than a band, it is a spiritual response to the dilution of the true meaning of 'rights of passage' for young men and women. Tired of the old T and A dancing chicks and dreadlocked pretty boy DJ's that characterize the overthetop party scene for youngsters in America...do something meaningful, challenging, and rocking!
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.
Also, NO BIG EGOS!
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.
