not sure....

that's kinda funny...that pic on www.theschwag.com is super old school...only two of the four pictured are still playing with the band.
The guys from EOTO/String Cheese will be playing with them in September at Schwagstock (and with their side projects of course)....overall The Schwag are sounding better than ever right now....check em out on archive.org....just search "the schwag" and sort by date...I highly recommend the 8/1/09 show (wink, wink).

The Schwag is the best around (sounds funny saying that)

SCHWAGSTOCK!!!!!!!!

The Schwag are the best out there right now...Darkstar included....don't miss a show if they come your way...and if u can make it to one/all of their summerlong campout festies definitely....GO...well worth the TRIP.
go to their website.....Stu Allen from JGB plays lead guitar for them and his vocals will give you goosebumps...blows John out of the water on the 80's-90's Jerry vocals...ummm...."Standing on the Moon" anyone? guaranteed chills and streaming tears of joy...JERRY IS ALIVE!!! and he's in the middle of the woods in MO bringing the love!

Wake the Dead

I'm especially fond of their version of "Prodigal Town," a Hunter tune.

There's an article about them here.

Wake the Dead

Oh yeah, gotta have the celtic dead tunes. Saw them one night in Pt Reyes on a trip to NoCal a few years back the night before a cancer walk. They still play & put a nice Celtic twist to the dead. If you ever get the chance to see Wake the Dead, go for it!!
