I'm an old deadhead, so glad I made it! I've been "out of touch" for a few years but so glad to be back. I'm a musician who plays a very unusual instrument, a "Prizim" which is a glorified Autoharp. 37 strings. I have just uploaded a bunch o dead tunes, including Terrapin, Eyes, Birdsong and some others. Bluesy Black Peter.
take a look, enjoy. Website is coming in a few weeks.
this is my first original song solo (instruments;l), would love to play in a band but for now solo is better than nothing!
Let me know what you think!
Better late than never...Been writing songs since the early seventies, and just put out a CD "One Long Skid vol.1" I finally had time to go back to the station and pick up a few of my cars that I left off years ago! Hope some folks like it, and pass the word. A little reckoning maybe...
Keep on Skidin'
I played in a band called Single Shipper for four months. We played pop-punk/ grunge (kind of different for these forums i know lol) we didnt play any shows because of money and travel problems. But we split cos' my drummer was heavily envolving himself around drinking and pot smokeing which was affecting his playing and concentration. But also cos'..... he wanted to play speed metal. A: Not really too much into that & B: I'm not that and what I mean by "that skilled" I mean "THAT SKILLED" enough to play that kind of music haha. I'm mostly good at three/four chord progressions, covers (Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, Social Distortion, Sublime etc...) But before that and to this day I'm a solo artist and would rather prefer that over being in a band :)

I am in a band called Positive Mental Trip but this weekend, Saturday May 21st, 2011, I am playing at my festival, Positive Mental Trip Festival in Northville, NY with Tom Constanten in his band "In the Dark". A big deal for me and will be up on two songs with them. Anyone interested check out my site- www.positivementaltrip.net . 3 days of camping and music in the Adirondack mountains of New York.

looking for members to start a new 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
