Playing In The Band

We would be most grateful if you would check out our band. We are an improv band consisting of 6 members from 3 cities in 3 different states. We only get together to play live and most everything is made up on the spot, we do fall into an occassional cover by The Dead, Pink Floyd,Dylan or an old traditional and an occassional original, but nothing is ever planned or rehearsed. Because of this we have hours and hours of live recordings but very little tracked out which makes it hard to post. Two people however have posted you tube videos of us, they can be found by googling Spongecake And The Fluff Ramblers. Also, our percussionist can be found on you tube playing with Robert Randolph and The Family Band and has recorded with Rob Wasserman,Stephen Perkins, Steven Molitz, and Willie waldman. Please check out our tunes and let us know what think.Peace and Love Spun Fluffington

Live from Bakersfield

We started covering dead tunes while in college in the mid 70s, leaning heavily on Anthem, Aoxomoxoa, and Skullfuck. 36 years later we have reunited and are at it once again.

Seems we are stuck in Europe '72 and can't get out.

Jam Fest on Long Island

We are a bunch of "old" dead heads who just love to jam as often as possible (our goal is once a week but life sometimes gets in the way) We just play for fun with no real agenda. We do the music of the Dead, Dylan, Beatles, other assorted stuff and even originals. I always like to say that we are a drum circle with a lot of guitars. But in fact we are looking for a drummer and or percussionist and keyboard player. If you are interested in joining us (even occasionally) contact me at mrgratefu@aol.com. Leave me your phone number and a little bit about you and we will contact you.

I don't have a band yet - maybe you can help me with that

But I'd love to collaborate with some other Dead scholars on a covers band that included a good number of Dead tracks. I sing, I play passable acoustic guitar. Don't have a whole lot of gear, just a whole lotta love for the music. No, I don't have a myspace page. If you're near Long Beach (California), let's meet up for a listening party and see if we are interested in a collaboration. This is not intended to be a big touring band or get on a label, just music for music's sake in my local area.

My UK Band - Special Preserve

Hi everyone,

I'm new to these forums, but I've been a deadhead for about 16 years now - ever since I got Dicks Picks Vol II when I was 16. Anyhow, I've got a band in England called Special Preserve, and we play music that we jam on - kind of bluesy country funk. We've just finished some new recordings, so check em out if you have a minute at www.myspace.com/specialpreserve

Hope you like em!

Ben
