Ian Thornley

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:
IAN THORNLEY

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...

Bucket Head

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!

The Schwag

The Schwag

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

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!

Steve Kimock

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

STS9

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

Santa Barbara Cover Bands?

Anyone know of any Grateful Dead-oriented bands in Santa Barbara? Moving from Albany where I can go out once a week and see an awesome cover for $5 plus a lot of other live music in the area, so I guess I kinda took it for granted at thought of not having that available to me . I actually don't know what I'd do being able to listenin to the music play when I get confused ;-). I'd definitely love to know where to find the local heads and good music. Much thanks.
