    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

    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
    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...

a new, original song by Ozark Matt words and music copyright 2017 all rights reserved. Recorded 9.12.2017. Your sacred heart, it burns true I hope he can be with you 17 times I kissed you there 18 rhymes you cursed me here Pluto knows when to leave Chiron stays as he please It's tragic that you had to go I'll Love you more than you will know You can't believe the words you said He really got inside your head Our life we built, you threw away Without him here, you would have stayed An eternal flame can be reborn It can be reshaped, it can be reformed I reach you now in your dreams We're alone to work on things I hold your hand and hear your voice I am here for you whatever the choice

Hey now family! We will be recreating full Jerry Garcia Band Set lists from 1976-1995. Our tour starts in Seattle, WA and goes down to Santa Cruz, CA. We have a special show on March 8th at Club Fox in Redwood City, with special guest Maria Muldaur, joining me on vocals, to recreate a 1978 JGB show, in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Cats Under the Starts tour. Here is our full tour schedule for the Pacific Northwest. After this, we head to the East Coast for some great shows as well. Please keep in touch with us at www.thegarciaproject.com. Gratitude, and much love. Hope to see you at a show. 2018 Pacific Northwest Spring Tour Dates: Feb 27 - Seattle, WA - Tractor Tavern Feb 28 - Portland, OR - Goodfoot Lounge March 1 - Bend, OR - Domino Room March 2 - Eugene, OR - WOW Hall March 4 - Winters, CA - Palms Playhouse March 8 - Redwood City, CA - Club Fox w/ Maria Mauldaur March 9 - Santa Cruz, CA - Michaels On Main March 10 - Fairfax, CA - 19 Broadway I spent a lot of nights in a lot of places with the Jerry Garcia Band, and I’m here to say that I really enjoy what The Garcia Project does with those memories. Mik’s guitar and his and Kat’s vocals stir up some very sweet vibes…some times they almost make me feel like I’m back in, say, 1992 at the Warfield. Check ‘em out. — Dennis McNally, former publicist for the Jerry Garcia Band “The Garcia Project was on point with the whole experience and it didn’t seem like a cover band more like a mirrored band…they are just as real as the Jerry Garcia Band. “ – Buffalo FM Review “If you close your eyes, you’ll swear you are at a Jerry Garcia Band show.” – ecoLocal Magazine “In order for a tribute band to be successful, fans need to look at them as the authority on the artist they are emulating. The Garcia Project pulls it off effortlessly. Go see them live …The Garcia Project is the whole package.” – Jim Gilbert, Upstate Live “”Deadicated“ to carrying on the music and vibe of Jerry that so many still carry in their hearts.” – Albany Times Union The Garcia Project faithfully channels and projects the feelings, emotions and music that propelled the Jerry Garcia Band and the fans through many years of musical bliss. It’s about family, soul searching, rejoicing, contemplating, celebrating, seeking truth and loving one another. It’s The Garcia Project. http://www.thegarciaproject.com

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'.
