    DSO Lot Scene?

    Hey y’all is there a lot scene at DSO shows? I’ll be going to one night of the 2 night run in Burlington, VT in a few weeks! I want to sell some tie dye, dead themed cookies, and homemade bracelets.

    Bar none, the best tribute band I've personally seen. Based in DFW, they occassionally go on the road. Keep an eye out.
    I have not seen them since Kenny Withrow left the band, but the rhythm and drums are intact.

    Tribute Bands

    What do Electric Hummus, Dead Jam and the Grateful Friends all have in common? They are all Boston area tribute bands led by Todd Lena (lead guitar player, singer and band leader). Todd is one of the very best Jerry style guitar players on the planet. When I play some of Todd's music for a Dead Head, they think it's a trick. They don't recognize the singer, but they think it's Jerry playing the lead guitar.

    The Grateful Friends are the best DEAD music purveyors in the Boston area.

    Grateful Dead Latin Style

    Hi all, I am latin percussionist and Lifelong Deadhead. I am planning to launch an equity crowdfund for a Latin Jazz Grateful Dead Tribute project called "The Latin Dead" but first reaching out to the Dead community in case there was some interested investors looking to take the ride and help us thrive! I have a detailed business plan I can provide for any serious inquiries. Please feel free to message me directly here or via email at... latindeadmusic@gmail.com

    Thanks, Brenden

Hey! Good to find another Hokie on this forum! Our next gig in the area is probably March 6 at the Pine Tavern in Floyd, VA - it's a great spot if you haven't been out there. It's our 24th anniversary show. Though something else might pop up. If you're on FB we have a page that hes updates etc. Or you can always drop me an email @ thekind@vt.edu peace Tom Snediker Lead guitar, vocals The Kind, Crossties, Scott Fore and His Hillbilly Hotclub

+1 on Jakes Leg. Oh, the hours we spent, in Twenty North, where Jakes Leg was the house band. (Randy, guitar player owned the bar.) Back then, one of my best friends played bass for 8 years(?) for the band, another worked the door, another tended bar. Heaven in St. Louis.

I've been wondering if there is indeed a market here in LA for a tribute act. One that spotlights their Americana/Cocaine Cowboy years and goes full acoustic like "Reckoning" Does your tribute act do well?

Even though I am new to the band and the scene, I am really interested in seeing a camp out show of some good dead tracks? I live in the Mid Atlantic area and don't know where I should get started. Any thoughts?

Hello, we play Dead tunes out of Carbondale, Illinois, and call ourselves quite aptly - Another Dead Cover Band. Right now, we're trying to set up some social sites to maybe get playing a few more venues in the area, and it has become important to seek out some form of correspondence regarding obtaining permissions to upload mp3s of us playing shows. Is this allowable? (Is this an applicable forum?) Thanks for any/all help ~ ADCB
