all about my band

Our band is called "Grooveyard" ( ). We exist in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada. It's a beautiful place to live, wine country, a couple of driving hours north of the Washington border. That said, there's precious few heads in the area.
Our band's line up is: bass, drums, percussion, lead vocal, guitars X 2. The set list used to be all Dead tunes. Now it's expanding outward somewhat. (Stevie Wonder/Allman Bros./Original tunes...) For gigs we mostly do a few of the summer festivals held in our area. Check out the 'Festival of Freedom' at Grand Forks, B.C., or the 'Life and Arts Festival' held annually in Kelowna, B.C.
I look forward to checking out the myspace links I see in these posts!

All the best everyone,

e & My Band

If you're in and around LI, NYC, come out and see The Jason Ferguson Project (JFP). We are currently the core of musicians who recently left Halfstep. Check out our website at and see what we do. As the elder statesman of the group (Gary on piano and organ) (my first show was Nassau Coliseum March '73), I know if you're a deadhead, you'll really enjoy our shows. I HATE PLAYING MUSIC WHEN NO ONE SHOWS.

The Basements / new duo

I joined a four-piece band a few months ago as bassist, and we've performed "Truckin'" at our gigs. The guitarist and I are trying to work "Tennessee Jed" into the lineup.

I had an acoustic guitar duo for a couple of years, but my partner moved to Colorado, where his girlfriend lives. We used to play a lot of Dead, including a whole set's worth on the 10th anniversary of the day Jerry died.

A few weeks ago, I met a very talented guitarist named Patti Spadaro who has relocated to this area (near Pittsburgh) from California, where she wowed everyone with her chops. Patti heard me playing a few Dead tunes at an informal performance and introduced herself. We decided to pair up and plan to start playing shows next month.

Tombstone Bound

I play in a band called Tombstone Bound. We do mostly all originals, just recorded a new tune last night. This is my first post here and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Really like the sight so far and looking forward to meeting some folks here.

The VW Project - Bucks County, PA

I am a founder and the bass player for The VW Project. The VWP is a 4 piece band that plays primarily JGB material, but alas we cannot ignore the GD material and as such, we do play some Dead tunes. We can be found on the web at or

Currently we are in rehearsals for the "Splintered Sunlight Family Campout" produced by Who Hill. This is an all day event in Consetoga, PA (Lancaster County) with (in order of appearence) Realitive Matter, The VW Project, Moses Livingston & The Raggamuffins and Splintered Sunlight. There is vending and camping with an acoustic jam around the campfire at the night's end. Music begins at noon on September 8th and addmission is $40 in advacne, $60 day of show. The bands are not getting paid a ton of money and the addmission is to help offset the costs of producing this show. This is the third year for this event and it's a ton of fun!

Rob's original music

Since I'm in the warfrat category, I tend to make music on my own these days, that and a day job make it somewhat perilous to play out and about right now. I'm always interested in new connections so come to my site

My stuff is also available through the iTunes music store as a free podcast

Use the email link to write me and comment on the tunes if you so desire.

new songs from my upcoming cd

First of all - Woody, checked out your page. Good stuff - like the mando in G minor.
I put 4 new songs on last night. They are all on my upcoming CD titled Everyday Things. What you will hear on myspace and on my web site,, are the rough mixes. I'm sending them off to Black Dog Studios in Tampa to get mixed and mastered this week.
The songs on myspace now are special because they feature the singing debut of my 5-year-old daughter Josie ("Gnu Gnu") and my wife Anna ("Everyday Things" - she does a whistling solo too). My friend Eric Jackson ( plays melodica on "Gnu Gnu" and sings background on "Hello to the Rain."
What I do is folk rock with a kids/family twist. My wife is my manager, and we're putting together a whole multi-media concept with activities, educational stuff, merchandise ... I'm a teacher, and a lot of the songs have (I like to think) learning value.
My wife thinks Hello to the Rain sounds like a song Weir might sing. I've been told Gnu Gnu sounds like a Phish song - I know I've seen folks grooving to it at my gigs.
Also on myspace, scroll down to the comments and check out the cd cover art done by my pal James Hixson.
