It does say "Local and otherwise!" We're a Pittsburgh Jam Band and we do some good ol' GD, as well as Beatles, Phish, Dylan, Originals and a bunch more. Our website is and we have streaming audio of some stuff from recent live shows. We're a bunch of old dudes & gals who simply love the jam. The tightness of a song, as well as the loose improv feel. Sound like anyone you may know? ;)

Here's a link to our most recent show - full live version available for listen or download:

Hope ya like it!

Grisman headlining inaugural Chicago Bluegrass&Blues Fest 11/22

What's up guys, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about the inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues festival, this 11/22 at the historic Congress Theater, all benefiting the Saving Tiny Hearts Societies fight against the country's most common birth defect.

The first 10 folks that hit me up at will get a pair of tickets mailed to them. We're excited for you to help us spread the word about this righteous endeavor

Moe, like The Grateful Dead and others, are jam bands. Both groups have multiple drummers, and drift off into places that only our minds tend to wonder around in, or atleast mine anyway. I discovered Moe by going to a website called,, it's an online radio station that you can taylor to your tastes. Type in "The Grateful Dead," and they will play Dead songs along with other suggestions. It's all free, with the ocassional interruption trying to sell you music, but they get really creative when it comes to exposing you to other artists that fit the genre that you're into.

If you've never heard of Moe, songs such as; Mexico, She, Moth, The Weight, are all good places to start. I thought the Dead had some long songs until I heard these guys...

If you live in Ohio, Terrapin Moon is a good tribute band to see!! Based in Dayton, you can find them playing Columbus, Cincinnati, and this year they're doing an acoustic set at Grateful Fest 08 ....can't wait!!!
