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 :)

Free EP for Facebook friends

Hey there, I plugged my band up in one of the first few folders a while back. Our second album is due soon, and to help get things moving again we've finally put a Facebook page together today (a lot of you already signed on to our ol' MySpace page... thanks!)

Anyhoo.... we'll be putting up rough mixes, outtakes, etc. on the new Facebook page, and we're also putting together a new EP that we'll distribute freely exclusively to our new Facebook fans.

If you're interested visit us here http://tinyurl.com/2d9qdqy ,click on the "Like" button at the top of the page, and we'll notify you regarding the free EP shortly.

Take care, now!
