    Sacramento musicians wanted for jamming
    I am interested in meeting Sacramento, CA 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 12 years and frequently play outdoors in Freedom Park on Saturdays with a portable battery-operated rig. I'm no professional, but after 12 years how bad could I be? Contact me and maybe we can jam. Walter

    New Tribe 7" Elevator/Light One Candle early Dead vibe
    Hi Folks,We're a psychedelic rock/cosmic american band from TX/OK with a new single out on 7" vinyl/digital. It's been a long strange trip of 25 years but we're stoked to be making the music we are now. Should appeal to fans of earlier Dead and the early 70s stuff. We play around TX and OK and further afield. Come on out and join us and join the Tribe. You can stream the new single and learn more here: http://newtribesounds.space/index.php/elevatorlightonecandlelitepromo/ Preorder the vinyl here: https://thenewtribe.bandcamp.com

    Jamming in Grass Valley?
    Anyone in the Grass Valley area up for some GD jamming? I'm not anywhere near pro level - just for fun. Right now it's just me on guitar and a friend on bass, but we could really use another guitar, some drums, maybe keyboards. Again, just for fun.

    gr8FLdüde & frenz - letting it rock in Atlanta, GA since 2007 !
    Hey now! gr8FLdüde & frenz was formed in 2007 and has been performing throughout Georgia and Alabama on a regular basis ever since. Consisting mostly of veteran musicians from the Atlanta jam-band scene, the band has become well-known for performing both on festival stages and "an evening with..." format consisting of two long sets per show from a repertoire of well over 100 original compositions and cover songs (mainly comprised of Dead, Garcia and classic rock tunes). gr8FLdüde & frenz is the only band to perform at each and every one of the 11 annual Jerry Day ATL celebrations. Check out our FB page where you can view some of our live performance videos from many gigs over the past 11+ years and stay in touch with what's happening on the DeadHead scene in Georgia as we are tightly connected with all of the Dead cover bands in the state. peace, Lewis Newmark, bandleader gr8FLdüde & frenz www.facebook.com/gr8fuldude

    Long Island Folk Rock Jam band
    We are located in the Garden City/Mineola part of Long Island,NY and we are acoustic guitars, flute and piano. We do some dead, Dylan, Beatles, Robert Hunter, original and an assortment of others. We play for fun but we do gigs once in a while at bars and for parties. I'm also looking to work on a cd of originals and a few obscure covers. My email is nycshel@aol.com if your interested in being part of what we do or if you want us to play in your area or at a party. We could use some percussion and a bass player (maybe even a lead guitar) but open to anything interesting. NYCshel@aol.com. Leave me your name and if you want to play with us, where you live and age. And though we are a fun band we are looking for some commitment (mostly we practice on Monday nights)

    Hey Mars! Looks like you've got a good thing going up there. I'm in central IN (near Indy). Don't get out much, but sometimes I do get into Indy for a show. Def. hit the Boys in any incarnation wherever they have played around here. It's funny, to quote the bumper sticker "Weir Everywhere". My kids are always amazed that everywhere I go, someone eventually comments on my Grateful Dead shirt. Anything from a parking lot attendant in Nashville IN, to a teacher at Purdue. We really are everywhere! Peace, -Dave

    I'm from NW Indiana, it wasn't easy finding like minded individuals with the skill set to take on this type of music. Finally came together for me about 3 years ago. I now have 2 bands dedicated to the music of the Grateful Dead. What's real nice, DeadHeads are very supportive of anything Dead related. It's been my most successful musical adventure to date...

    Musical desert thwarts jams
    I live in an area much like every other place I have ever lived - very rural. The music is mostly oldies, MoTown, pseudo blues jams, and country western. Guys that play 100 mph over three chords. I know a lot of local musicians, but it always ends up in Creedence and Mustang Sally. If I could find any other Deadheads to jam with, I would surely do so. I can probably play 2/3? of the GD catalog if I can listen to it and have some bass and drums. Rhythm or lead - I don't care. Not to boast, but I am pretty darn good at it, and SOUND good. I like Alabama Getaway, Althea, One More Saturday Night, and Playin' in the Band, for example. I've done a number of these solo, live, over the past 7 years, but no one ever had any idea of what I was playing. The "acornaxe" refers to a 1973 Guild SC-100 (pictured in profile) with the oak leaves and acorns, that I modded in early '75 after getting some advice and a Hod Rod ceramic magnet kit at the Alembic Store when it was in San Francisco. I added coil splitters and a series switch too (it came with a phase switch). I recently spoke with Rose at Alembic, now in Santa Rosa about "Jerry Tone", and as a result I just got a '65 Fender Dual Showman amp head out of Vermont. I don't "clone" Grateful Dead specifically - I like Jorma and Cippolona too, as well as many, many other bands (like Allman Brothers), but it would be fun to do some Dead Covers because that option is "Dead" around here, in the foothills south of Sacramento. Don't be afraid - I can get a good sound at low volume with a smaller amp, but I do like to have access to the original gear, too. I do get in to Terrapin XR once in a while. Just sayin'.

I posted on this thread about the band...but just wanted to lay down some links to our newest stuff. We recently 'broke out' "Lazy Lightning" > "Supplication" for the first time. We've been working on it for a good while and I think the rehearsal paid off...you decide. Also another gem from a magical night at The Thunderbird Cafe 11/29/08.

Hi Everybody, I finally have a myspace page any comments and friend requests are appreciated. I've been a Grateful Dead fan or "deadhead" since the mid 80's or so and never could get enough. I'm also a active trader and did some taping of GD and other bands, so if anybody wants to trade that's cool with me. I'm interested in getting some contacts with anybody REAL in the music biz/established recording labels. I'm currently in the process of recording a original pop/rock project that hopefully will be released by summer 2009. Eventually, I will have some original material on myspace but I need to have it applied for copyright before upload. Many thanks in advance to anybody who takes the time to visit my "myspace" (FYI: there is no studio tricks on the recordings, no pitch correction, most tracks recorded live except "If I needed someone" has a overdubbed guitar solo.) here's the link: http://www.myspace.com/donnieloeffler Sincerely, Ursa Minor - Donnie L. http://www.myspace.com/donnieloeffler "the warm wet world of analog audio"

I have a request for my fine fellow Dead forum ladies and gents.......... A local public radio station called WYCE who supports local bands has an online vote for their awards ceremony called "The Jammie Awards". This is the 10th year and one of the projects I'm involved with is up for awards in a few catagories, the biggest being a peoples choice for best local album and best new band. The band I'm involved with is called "The Lynn Thompson Band". This year WYCE is doing an online vote for the big award, which The Lynn Thompson Band is up for. A little backstory on the local music scene here in Grand Rapids is that it has become very cliqueish over the last few years and it's really tough to get gigs and publicity here, especially if the band plays mostly original music. A very select group of bands seem to have a monopoly on the local scene and it would be great to see a total underdog band (such as The Lynn Thompson Band) win. ...........so, if anyone has a couple of spare seconds while browsing this, go to the link below to WYCE and vote for (the) Lynn Thompson Band. If you have multiple email addresses, vote again and urge any friends and family with a spare couple of seconds to do the same. This is the link..... http://www.grcmc.org/radio/

Strange Trip is a 5 piece band out of Atlanta, GA. Thier influences include (but not limited to) the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Santana, Phish and Ratdog. Add a little splash of Southern rock and a few drops of country and you've got Strange Trip. Strange Trip is comprised of veteran rhythm guitarist Allen Peacock (Blue Rufus, Rainbow Zen), bassist Ken Dunn (Simply Southern), guitarist Ryan Kumar, up and coming vocalist Jessica Stanley and drummer Danny Waller (Simply Southern). Peacock,the product of the early '90's Philadelphia music scene, anchors this ecclectic Quintet, whose age range goes from 25 - 40. Dunn & Waller, who bring a southern edge to the table, honed thier skills for many years in the Metro-Atlanta club staple Simply Southern. At the ripe age of 25, Kumar conjurs up thoughts of Jerry Garcia with the technician-like chops of Trey Anastasio. While Stanley adds her heady high harmonies to complete the package. Check them out at: http://www.myspace.com/strangetrip08

we're going by the name The Monterey Jacks. we're a three piece rock band from California. when we play live, we've done a few of the Dead's tunes (close to the only covers we do), but rehearsing we're always playing their stuff. stella blue, the eleven (which we do with zeppelin's four sticks, which is in 5 and 6... which adds up to 11!) , loser, deal, mr charlie, the other one, etc... i bought this great fender amp and about a month later learned it was a newer model very similar to something Jerry Garcia used to use. so that's kept me in a good mood for a long time. you can check us out on myspace HERE SHORELINE!!!

Dr. T of the Art Punk Band I am very interested in the answer to Brother Martin's question about covering songs. Some of you will recall, that in Sept. he asked: "Here's the thing....the fat cats have been tightening up the intellectual property laws, and I can no longer just post Beatles songs without paying some agency in New York, even though I am not selling them, just making them available for free download...I have direct agreements with Richard Thompson and with Kate Wolf's estate that it's OK for me to post my covers of their songs....is this permission implicit with the Dead's work (along with taping), or do I need to ask somebody?" I think the legal issues here are tricky. When bands sell albums with cover songs, part of the revenues go to the songwriter or company within the music industry that manages the property rights to the song. When bands perform perform cover songs at performances, or a song is played on the radio or Music services like Rhapsody or Napster, my understanding is that some revenues are provided to the songwriter as well--x cents per stream, download, etc. I think state licensing fees for musical performances might also provide revenues back to the song management company. I think the taping at Dead shows, which the band actively encouraged--and helped endear them to many a listener--is different. They chose not to exercise their (legal and potentially enforceable) rights to uses of their performances in order to encourage music sharing. In doing so, they showed listeners how they valued community over profit. It is one reason they are legends in the music world. Cover songs are numerous on Myspace and You Tube, I presume without any compensation to the songwriter--but I think a legal dispute is still on-going related to this, and who knows how this may turn out? Because of the uncertainty about this issue, my band decided to only place originals on our myspace page (myspace/artpunkband) or our You Tube page. But I would prefer to have a mix of originals and covers--we love playing Ripple, Sugaree, Uncle John's Band, US Blues, and Box of Rain, as well as a variety of Kinks, Beatles, Dylan, Neil Young covers. Copyrights do expire, and songs eventually become part of the public domain--when anyone can use--but this takes a long time, especially in the United States. In Europe, I think, copyrights expire after 50 years, but in the US copyrights remain in effect for songs written in 1923 or later. There are some exceptions when songs are placed on the public domain by the writer---and there are websites where you can look up if a song is on the Public Domain. Two songs that we cover and have recorded versions of are Shady Grove and Lord Franklin (Pentangle): these songs, I believe, were written long before 1923 and are listed as public domain songs, so we would not have concerns about using these songs. I think it is a shame that property rights on songs are enforced to this extent and remain in effect for so long. We had recorded a song "Electric Cottenfields" that was adapted from the old Ledbelly song (1941), but done with a rough electric guitar wall of sound effect. It was only about 40 seconds long--but we decided not to take a chance with copyright enfringement after seeing the copyright was still in effect. We took it off before the album was placed on line. We were going to put another song "Jet Plane Blues" on the album-- which is basically the old folk song done in a minor electric blues format--try it--you might find that this works well. But "Jet Plane" is still under copyright protection as well, so we did not include it. The copyright issue was one reason we are now participating with the Creative Commons Music Community---the music site is Jamendo.com. All music placed on line is always 100% free for streaming or downloading, and all participating musicians agree to loosen the copyright restrictions over the music they place on line to encourage sharing. Others are always free to copy, share, or cover their music. You might find some interesting music on the Jamendo site to cover. So check it out. And if you do, please listen or download (always free) our new album, "Uncommon Creations", by "The Art Punk Band" on Jamendo.com. A direct link to our free album download on Jamendo is also on our myspace/artpunkband page. Hope to catch up with you there one of these days. Thanks Dr. T of the Art Punk Band

I play original Dead fusion...folk, rock, country, blues and jazz infused with 40 years of Dead influence. I currently sing and play guitar as a duet with guitarist Ed Munson, but also have a variety of great musicians to play with when I'm on the road. I most recenty have been sitting in with Donna Jean and the Tricksters, Crazy Fingers, and several local bands. We're heading back into the studio as soon as I finish my latest project, Relix: The Book. I was the magazine's publisher from 1980-2000. Toni Brown www.tonibrownband.com

Greetings from Canada, If you are interested in some really pure sound, I perform with Paiste Gongs now numbering over 30, Quartz Crystal Bowls and Vibraphone. I perform as much as the Dead did back in the day with over 100 concerts a year here in Canada. I hope to tour the east coast in April after attending the first 8 shows of the Dead tour.

After way too long working on it my music website is up with two albums for your listening and more to come relatively soon. Drop in and listen if you are so inclined. There is a forum if you would like to pipe up a suggestion or whatnot-I haven't listened to all the songs since being uploaded so let me know if you notice any problems. http://hydrophonica.com/ My Myspace site has also been updated with a new song and all the other songs that were on it have been remixed and should sound a little tighter. http://www.myspace.com/dcmuir

Had to write a song for the times as the media and the constant barage of all the news and the blues and the holes in my walkin' shoes kept me up night after night until I got this out of my system...so we hit the streets and played our hearts out...and now I'm ready for the changes in times. Have a look if you have a notion... Me and J went out and jammed it up on Main street. The Bailout Blues ~ The Alright Brothers.

I created a band a few months back with one of my best buddies, and we decided on a name for the band. But whoever was to be the singer in the band had there name in the un-official band name, nobody wanted to be the singer, so me playing lead guitar took up singing also. So, in about one week, Ryan Moore and the Merry Pranksters was born. Well, I have a very strange taste in music. I listen to about everything, but of course anything Dead related would be what I am most interested in. It' very hard to develop a sound that revolves around the Grateful Dead, Tool, Sunn O))), Sage Francis, Into The Moat, and other various non-relating bands. So, as we write material and record things, I intend to push the musical genre not into one direction, but what seems to be in all directions at once. We are currently recording our first song, it's coming along very smoothly and once we upload to a site I will post the link on here. Hopefully, everyone will enjoy it.

This exercise in logic started as a joke but evolved. Here's how it goes. What if - people loved your music but were afraid to come to your show? You know, because it was all thuged out like the Dead were when they first started with Hell's Angels, bare breasts, free acid, and weed. No problemo!! With today's technology, you could buy tickets over the phone or over the internet, not go to the show, and then download the show off of the internet. Just immagine if a fan wanted to show his appreciation for the iconoblasting effort of his favorite band and contributed to their well being without expecting a show. Personally, I think it would be cool to play a mostly empty stadium. Just a few bikers and such that would let me experiment with really wierd stuff so I could prepare for playing, "Space". All the people who hired me can expect is for me to get pepole to pay for tickets. As long as the money keeps rolling in it's all good . . . and people should eventually start to show up at shows. That would be way cool.

Hey Folks,I love the Dead, have seen them a bunch before Jerry passed, and played in a Dead acoustic band in college called Lazy Lightning (in New Haven, CT).

And I love Egypt, been there 9 times, many interesting stories to tell... You can check out my stuff on MySpace here: http://andrewsongs.net My official website is here: http://andrewsongs.com You can get my latest CD, "The Dreamer or the Dream", here: http://cdbaby.com/cd/bayuk2 I'd love to meet some Deadheads down here in South Florida (Ft Lauderdale area) who would like to jam.

We play a variety of covers - a lot of Neil Young, some Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, well, you get the idea. We also do some originals. Nothing serious 1-2 a month in the local bars. We met at a local open mic night and evolved from acoustic duos/trios to a five piece electric band. Just a lot of fun. http://www.myspace.com/pharmaceuticalsandnature. Yeah, we changed our name - Second Hand Soul kinda fits what we do.

A few of us are trying to get a bluegrass band going. I'm playing fiddle, acoustic guitar; another's on banjo, another on guitar and mandolin. We'll see how things work out. But how does this relate to the Dead? Often "Friend of the Devil" or "I Know You Rider" and others will be played. And just last week the banjo player started in with "Lonesome Road Blues!" "Aha!" I said, I know this one, and I sang it as I've heard it so often on one of my live Dead recordings. There's a ton of Dead stuff which lends itself to a bluegrass interpretation. (And I do enjoy much of their electric stuff, too, but I just concentrate on the acoustic when I'm playing.) Indeed, at last year's California Bluegrass Campout this fine guitarist played a smooth "Ripple." Very nice. By the way, I'm new, so hello to all. Humbled

Imagine Woodstock. crowded with people, flags waving in the air, psychedelic hippie mentality reigns over love peace and understanding. A roar of music comes from the stage with guitar feedback, tight, deep drum grooves and the growl of a thundering bass.

Hey guys i just joined a band with my friends that i have been jamming with for about a couple months. We were strawberry jam but we changed our name to Odacious Green. Here is our site. http://www.myspace.com/odaciousgreen the age range is 16-20. We are all good friends and we play a bunch of our own originals that we jam too but we do many grateful dead, some allman brothers and some phish covers as well. We are working on getting more music up on the myspace, even some of our dead covers. We cover many dead songs which is pretty cool because there are like very few bands from my area that even listen to the dead. We do Scarlet > Fire China > Rider Franklins Tower Bertha and many songs from the very best of like ripple, friend of the devil, uncle johns band, box of rain. we are currently working on Help > Slip > Frank If anyone that is around Philly can help us out with shows, please let me know

We here at Jerry Rig labs all love playing the Dead's music. We've kept this music in our lives non-stop. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are sometimes starved for the Dead's music. This has only made us hungrier and eager to feast. Like the Dead, we do our share of cover tunes by Dylan, The Band, The Beatles, with names like Dear Prudence, Up on Cripple Creek, and Tangled up in Blue. Our bag of goodies includes about 100 songs now, including over 2 dozen originals written over the past few years. Inspired by our heroes, we stand on the shoulders of giants. Our music ranges from the airy fun of "Hey Sunshine" to downright anger expressed in "Oceans of Greed". Throw in a few original instrumental jams, like "B9" or "Tonal Solstice Calyx" and you can see it gets pretty deep in here. Here are the links on the web to our sites: http://jerryrigband.com http://myspace.com/jerryrigband Our most recent gig at the luscious Horning's Hideout May 23 was an invite only event, enjoyed by a great crowd in near perfect weather. If you are in the Portland area, we will have a show at Mississippi Pizza Sunday, May 31 at 9 PM. There is also an unsubstantiated rumour that we are also playing at The Darling Reunion Campground Friday of Oregon Country Faire 2009. If you are touring through the Portland area, and would like to do a show with us, let us know!
