The DeFelice Brothers, from upstate NY, are an earthy roots rock type band who really capture that upstate vibe: take a listen to "Rockefeller Drug Law Blues."
And one that goes a but further afield is O.A.R. I went to a concert a few summers ago, and absolutely enjoyed it. I may have been the oldest guy there, but I could still feel the connection they have with their crowd, and they played some pretty inspired jams.
Grateful Greetings to ALL.
My buddy April told me about this site. Nice!
I wanted to share the gift of this very special Canadian Artist and his MUSIC with you:
I don't know if anybody on the board recalls BIG WRECK, (Ian's first project, whole band is amazing) but if you are able to get your hands on either of the two albums these are superb.
"In Loving Memory Of"
"The Pleasure & The Greed"
The new album Tiny Pictures will be out on Feb. 10 (w/ Artwork by none other than
Pink Floyd legend Storm Thorgerson as well. I am diggin' the new single cover art for Ian's new single Make Believe, really cool vibes on that for the travelers.)
Ian is a multi~instrumentalist, composer and vocalist of another caliber entirely.
His guitar prowess is out of this world.
There is so much appreciation for GREAT SONG within this community I hope
you don't mind a kindred share...

here's the unofficial site hosted by some very sweet, cool beings in Canada...
Thanks everybody. Look forward to your feedback and truly hope you enjoy!
this band is experimental and cool. plus it is george harrison's son
This guy is just simply amazing. I saw him at Summer Hookah in 08 and damn he melted my face! If anyone here is really into guitar then def check him out. I would have to rate him one of the best guitar players who ever walked this earth!
They are a fabulous GD cover band...they hold summer festivals in MO and tour throughout the midwest.
Stu Allen (guitarist from JGB) just signed on to be their "permanent" guitarist.
This guy's Jerry vocals are breathtaking. He truly sounds like 80's-90's Jerry....not to mention his guitar playing is phenomenal. Jerry's soul is definitely with Stu Allen. Check him out on archive.org...he also played with a GD tribute "Workingman's Ed" a lil in the past. The guy is amazing.
String Cheese Incident is also a favorite of mine...although they are currently on a hiatus. Michael Kang from String Cheese also played guitar for The Schwag at a couple of Schwagstocks last year...good stuff...Bill Nershi from String Cheese also sat in for a few songs each night.
Dark star orchestra is probably the closest thing you'll ever get to a dead show. Note from note JohnK. (Jerrys part) Is a dead on match. Keller Williams is a great band too. Little Feet are a great band as well. Gettin pumped for the P.A. shows . Hope to see you all on tour!
Kimock with anybody. Last time I saw him was with Everyone Orchestra (another great improv project - quality depending on who's in the band at the moment).
Cornmeal - acoustic jammulation
Keller Williams, especially with Moseley, Droll and Sipes (WMDS)
Elephant Revival (sweet gypsy sweetness - beautiful people playing beautiful music)
Hot Buttered Rum
Anyone with Scott Law
I think all the above can be found on archive.org
I didnt see any comments on STS9. They are one of my top five bands at present. Surprised I didnt see any thing about them on the board. They are going to do two sets at Wakarusa. Sort of electronic Dead with no vocals lol ...... peace
Just caught three shows (Northhampton, Mass - and 12/30 & 12/31 Vancouver, BC)... these guys are amazing! If you are into kick ass music with a message then check them out...
