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
