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.
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 email@example.com. Leave me your phone number and a little bit about you and we will contact you.
Hello everyone. If you have the time, give my band OVERMIND a listen. Positive experimental reggae with a message. You can hear all of our songs and download our EP for free at Reverbnation.com/OvermindNJ

On Monday my friend and I are going to have a jam/recording session. We are huge deadheads and have been jamming for a while. We thought it was time to honor the dead. Here are the tracks we are going to attempt to cover.
Ramble on Rose
Viola Lee Blues

Finally, if you're in the Midwest we'll be playing a big St. Paddy's Day show at the historic Southgate House in Cincinnati. Lots of great music on the bill, give us a shout if you're int eh area.
you can email me at illuminoidal at mac dot com, or drop me a note via dead net
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 band Reform covering this GD-classic.
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!
