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.

upright bass and vocals

Xmy husband and i have past experience with various bands in the tri state area currently we are experimenting with a repitior of dead and jazz standards sung by ladies like nina simone sara vhaun and billie worked out a nice arrangement of my favorite things but mastercard did a cheezy commercial and killed it for us song feels cheep now hopefully time will heel the wound and restore its original glory got old tour head friend from back in the jerry days on rhythm guitar that joins in on occasion

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.....

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!
