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........

Please review my CD

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,, or, 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 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.

Oregon Country Fair

Hey Now
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.

homemade suburban folk-blues

I'm at and
my music takes some inspiration from Aoxomoxoa/Workingman's era Dead, among other sources. The Dusty creaky folky side of things.

Rasta_Billy Lyrics

Thanks for the feedback, there are about 16 tunes available for free listening : search:The Jimmy Mundanes
I am finding time to check out everyone's stuff and am impressed with the variety and commitment you all have in continuing the freedom of what is a mostly conservative art form.
Peace in our time
