Pistol Packin' Mama (PPM) *BAND*

We are a Ft. Worth, Texas based band. Play some Dead tunes, as well as some other covers. Mainly play original music though. We blend rock and roll, folk, country, blues and soul all into one. We are all about the moment with each song and where it can take us live with each other and the crowd. You can check us out at or on facebook at .. Hope to meet some new friends from joining this awesome site! Peace and piece. ;-)

Well, we did it!

Pittsburgh Grateful Dead band, theCAUSE played a wonderful show with the legendary, incredible, fantastic, amazing - and all around great guy - STEVE KIMOCK, sitting in with us all night. The whole first set has been put up on YouTube in a playlist, if you wanna check it out:

The audio is pretty chatty - we are getting a soundboard recording soon, but not for video.

Here's one for you to check out - a riproaring Sugaree, featuring Steve Kimock (far left, stage right) on guitar and our own Jill Paone Simmons on vocals.

Second Set coming soon!

Grateful We're Not Dead

G'day, eh?

Grateful We're Not Dead is a country, party band that will entertain for food and beer, not necessarily in that order.

We are located in the Ottawa, Canada area and entertain for free at charity events, fund raisers, peace concerts, seniors' residences, nursing homes, private parties, etc. All funds raised are donated to charity. The two main charities we support are Mufindi Orphans Canada and Ottawa Valley Aid for Chernobyl Children. When we perform for a private party, the organizers are required to make a donation to the charity of their choice. All band expenses are paid out of our own pockets so I guess you could say, "We pay to play for you". :)

The youngest member of the band is over 50 and the oldest is just under 70. You might say we're getting a little "long in the tooth"; however, we're having fun and will likely continue at it until we can no longer load the equipment in the truck.

You can check out our website at which in turn links to more Grateful We're Not Dead web presence.

If you wish, you can check out a video of the band doing its theme song:

The Mayflies from Iowa City

Hey Dead family! I have really been enjoying all the amazing covers during this months project. Thanks for the inspiration!

We play original music that is inspired, in part, by the Dead's early 70's sound. We also do a yearly Halloween show as the's a clip from 2010. If you want to hear our original music (I promise it will be worth your time!) go to themayflies dot com. All of our music is availble to stream on our music page.

This ain't a band

Acid Rain Light Show is....well, a light show, up in South-Western British Columbia. The only bands we've worked with that you'd have heard of would be The Country Joe Band and Eric Burden and the Animals. But also several Dead cover bands over our 38 years of existence. You are invited to check us out on Facebook-just search Acid Rain Light Show.
