Rose Garland - Cover Band

Hi all,

Well I was trying to track down a Canadian Grateful Dead Cover Band. A band called Rose Garland is playing at the Harball in MIlton, Ontario on April 17th. Anyone planning to go? Has anyone been to one of their shows?

+1 on Jakes Leg. Oh, the hours we spent, in Twenty North, where Jakes Leg was the house band. (Randy, guitar player owned the bar.) Back then, one of my best friends played bass for 8 years(?) for the band, another worked the door, another tended bar. Heaven in St. Louis.

Hey! Good to find another Hokie on this forum! Our next gig in the area is probably March 6 at the Pine Tavern in Floyd, VA - it's a great spot if you haven't been out there. It's our 24th anniversary show. Though something else might pop up. If you're on FB we have a page that hes updates etc. Or you can always drop me an email @ thekind@vt.edu

peace

I'll sure check this band out. As you might guess from my username a Dead band from VT might be just the ticket!

The Kind - Blacksburg, VA

I have been playing in a Dead band in Blacksburg, Va (the home of VA Tech) since 1986 called The Kind. We formed at my 20th birthday party as the band we had scheduled to play found themselves in a state unable to perform so I grabbed some buddies and we took the stage. Now we are approaching our 24th anniversary and my 44th birthday - yikes! Our only goal was and is to have fun playing music. We have had a handful of lineup changes over the years I and the rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist Wendy Godley are the only founding members that still play regularly. We have had a bunch of really talented folks come and go (and come back). We do a reunion show every summer at the Port O'Call in the Outer Banks of NC - we have as many former and current players as we can get together and put on one hell of a show. Folks coming in from as far as San Francisco and Hawaii to do these shows. We have gotten to play with some other great folks over the years including David Gans - who sat in at a gig at the Underground on Howard St in San Fran. Jerry Abrams (of Head Lights) joined us with trippy light shows and congas on some shows in SF that summer (1987). Robin Sylvester from RatDog played a couple of shows with us in Blacksburg and at the OBX reunion shows (he played guitar and keyboards - and is great at both and a great guy). We have opened for Rick Danko, Jefferson Starship, New Riders, Hot Tuna and a few others over the years.

Our current lineup features me, Wendy Godley, Rick Godley (drums), Danny Dunlap (guitar, synth, vocals), Mandy Cash (vocals) Steve "Slash" Hunt (bass) - also Greg Bump (bass). Slash is a monster bass player and toured with Bob Margolin for years (Bob was Muddy Waters' guitar player for the last 8 years of his life and is standing next to him in "The Last Waltz"). Former members include Mark McLeod (rhythm guitar, vocals) who is now teaching economics at Penn St, and Tom Lehman (bass), and Tim Taylor (drums) - Tim lives on the Big Island of Hawaii and plays with Hawaiians Unlimited and competes in triathlons.

Our website is thekind.org and we've got a bunch of videos on YouTube - search for "The Kind Blacksburg)
