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

Wake of The Blood in Charleston this weekend

We have a show Nov 13 (Sat) at the Oasis Pub in Charleston SC.
We are a punk/fast sounds band that does Grateful Dead covers. Nothing but. Not hardcore, more like the Dickies, Adicts or Dead Milkmen. Kinda sounds like the Ramones doing Dead songs. No songs are over three minutes, no guitar solos, no jams. It's a fun time, not alot of screaming at people.

Band name - Wake of The Blood - (It's a play on their Wake of the Flood record)

Here are some YouTube's . We don't have a demo yet.

Play Dead (New Orleans)

Just wanted to tell you about our new Dead tribute band here in New Orleans, Play Dead.

A clip from our first show is on youtube (it's kind of dark). At youtube.com just type in Dave Easley, Franklin's and the clip should come right up, Franklin's-Feel Like A Stranger-Franklin's.

Also, Anderson/Easley Project plays every Sunday night at Madigan's on Carrollton and Maple in the Big Easy, 9 to midnight, originals, funk, jazz, free-jazz, blues, and a little Dead as well.

I will be recording my debut solo acoustic album in a week

those of you who know me on facebook can get a free stream link to a live performance of one of my originals that will be on that upcoming album - the link is on my homepage right below the profile picture - hope y'all like it :)

peace and mellow music to all, have a grateful day as always,

Bus

ps to those few people out there who have never even met me in person and have been sending me threatening and annoying messages, PLEASE STOP THAT. IT CAN BE REALLY DANGEROUS TO BELIEVE RUMOURS - THEY OFTEN TURN OUT TO BE FALSE.

some of you seem to have heard rumors that i am some horrible person - i'm not. ask anyone who's met me and they'll tell you that. i have been touring with GD, JGB, Phil, DSO, Furthur, Weir, etc etc for years. nobody at any show has ever had a problem with me. not once.

those of you who persist in the activity of sending me or anyone annoying messages should please cease it and mind your own business. it's why i don't come here much anymore.

Deadheads should be respectful of others, not annoying towards them. thank you for considering that thought :) have a grateful day :)
