The guy tries way too hard to put a mock Jerry inflection in his voice. Very uncomfortable and ameteur.
noted a nice Estimated Prophet on Jerry Day...
then a He's Gone
complete with bubbles floating in the foreground and trees swaying in the background!
also remember them busting out a harmonica for a nice treat.
I enjoyed the tunes plenty,
Many Thanks ~N~

Any one in the Bay Area this weekend has a great chance to see the band this Sunday, 5 August at the annual Jerry Day celebration in Jerry Garcia Amphitheatre of McLaren Park.

Workingman's Ed does a phenomenal job of honoring the Grateful Dead, reaching into their vast song list to recapture musical experiences of the past. Stu Allen, in particular, provides a stunningly authentic lead guitar, very successfully emulating Jerry's phrasing, tone and imagination, and singing his lead part with surprising voicing. Pat Nevins adds the crtical rythym guitar, done as-it-should-be, and takes Bobby's vocal leads. Supported by a terrifically talented ensemble, this band will really grab you. Drummer Paul Scannell is also a founding member of Grapefruit Ed.
There's plenty more to say, but I'll leave space for others to add their comments...
