I am a guitarist/vocalist interested in jamming on eastern LI. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
The Jack Fate Band is my current lineup of friends that stretch back almost thirty years and still going strong. Currently we are a quartet with two acoustic guitars, flute and percussion. We play primarily music of the 60's, but will try anything and if it works we embrace it. As we all have professional day jobs, this is more of a hobby, but I know we are having more fun than should be legal. You can usually find us in the garage on Saturday nights, but we are always willing to play benefits and parties. Just remember that there is nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile.
Hay now Guys,
This is cool, a forum for musicians to meet....
My name is Woody, been a Deadhead and going
to shows for many many years, so many show,
I lost count.
I've been working on a basement project CD,
called, On the Spirit Trail, inspired by all the road
trips taken over the years. It started about a year
ago as a myspace project where I recorded a
few Dead cover tunes and Dead inspired original
songs and posted them on myspace.
I've made a couple demo CDs in the past to
give out to friends I meet along the road. Then I
decided to enter a couple songs into a Relix jamoff
contest to try to get onto their compilation CD.
Did not win, but received runner up,
which was more than I thought I'd get and It got
me an add in the Relix June issue.
That gave me the inspiration to try to put
together a real CD.
It turned out to be a bit more work
than I originally thought it would be,
had to get licenses in place for the Dead and
other cover songs, CD art, CD mastering,
and have learned lots of stuff along the way
about how to make a real CD.
The CD should be released around June 21st
or so. It is at the replicators now. It is kind of
a cross between the Grateful Dead and Yonder
Mountain String Band. Will be available from
CD baby and I will be trying to sell a few along
the road durring this year's road trip.
You can listen to a few of the songs at my
myspace site. Check it out and let me know what
Cheers and see you'all on down the road....
Kings of that Fat-ass Rastabilly groove your mama should have warned you about.
Cut my teeth on Dead covers years ago! Been to 20 Shows! (19 Jerry, 1 Jimmy Herring) How do I post that on the left column? Anyone?

Just checked out your page and I really dig Tall Tale - reminds me of Let Me Sing Your Blues Away, the old Keith Godchaux tune. King of Hearts also has (to my ears, at least) a hint of Unbroken Chain - very nice.
Did some recording last night with my friend Eric Jackson, a singer songwriter pianist. (www.ericjacksonmusic.com). He contributed backing vocals and he's coming back over to add melodica today. My album is almost finished!
Folk Rock for Groovin Families!

Hey great stuff! very deep with all the great art work and web page style too. I'll be visiting that site from time to time indeed!
Hi to everyone,
I really enjoyed checking out all of the links to the forum members' music; definitely a talented bunch. Anyway, I always dug the more free-jazz, experimental jams of the Dead (especially 73-74), and am a classically/jazz trained keyboardist. Have played in various projects, but most recently my instrumental experimental project called ebu-light dew of winter & brother hare. Check us out on myspace or better yet our homepage where our most recent album is available for your listening pleasure!
Thanks for listening!
Thanks Tony....that's right I didn't even realize I had changed my handle; I use this one on some other places-it refers to my job which is a stagehand in my town as opposed to the road crew I am the local crew.
Thanks for the interest again, I may give the Tall Tale a slight remix just to remove some clutter etc.....or I may get sidetracked....who knows. I'll let you know when I get some 'albums' up of my material; it will probably be streaming audio or some such.
Nice to see Chip pumping out the tunes too.....keep 'er coming Chip!
Hi dave nice to see your post..... back under a different handle gave them another listen still like them..fave being A Tall Tale...like the feel of that tune and the guitar picking stay cool and regards to the family..................................may your dog be with you.................
