    More an album than a band
    Dave McMurray, saxophonist late of Was Not Was, has a new album of Dead covers, Grateful Deadication, which sorta came into being when he saw Weir do Days Between at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass a few years back. It's very good.

I highly recommend Crazy Fingers if you live in South Florida or are on vacation in south florida. Very acomplished musicians playing mostly Dead covers with some Jerry Band stuff as well. Mostly playing in Palm Beach County and Broward County (a bit more in palm beach county than broward) Dont forget to see where they are playing if you go on vacation here and are a dead fan! the website is www.crazyfingers.net

especially if you like his earlier work: the Boz Scaggs Memphis album currently sitting by the cash register at my local Starbucks, where it caught me in a weak moment this morning. As the name suggests, Boz goes to Memphis and gets some great session folks and does old tunes. More smoldering than pyrotechnic, but some very nice moments. I think my favorite so far is "Corinna, Corinna," not the Hunter song but the old folk song that's on that early Bob Dylan album...

I agree with Marye that this is well worth listening to. Even better is the Barnes and Noble exclusive edition which features 6 demos on a second CD. Three of the six feature on the regular album, three do not. These are not rough but polished demos. I actually prefer the demo disc to the regular disc (don't tell Boz !).

Didn't know where to put this question, and I apologize if it has been asked and answered elsewhere, but I didn't see a thread for JGB. Not in GD section. Not in this one. Ratdog. Phil & Friends. Donna Jean. Mickey. But no JGB? Seems rather curious, to say the least. They are still putting out releases, Garcia Live, for instance, and I just wandered over to see if there was opinion on it, and no thread for JGB. What's up?

http://www.jefferydragrecords.com A small indie label started by Adam Moult of the Nashville, TN band Bad Cop has VERY quickly grown into a staple record label of a lot of the underground punk/rock world in that state. Bad Cop is, of course, on the label, but you can also find releases from Useless Eaters, Turbo Fruits, Natural Child, Ranch Ghost, Ghost Dance, Majestico, Little Viking, Western Medication, Promised Land, Fancytramp, Magic Milk, and more. Check out Jeffery Drag Records, indie music released by an indie label.

These guys opened strong for a really good show by Steve Winwood last year at the Fillmore. Winwood's voice is still one of the great ones, up there with Jerry, Bob, Greg Allman, Muddy, Toots, Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Lennon, Jagger and Ronnie Van Zant. And the guy is just so musical, long guitar solos that never ran out of ideas and of course his keyboard playing has always been among the best. "Can't Find My Way Home" was fucking amazing. But I was writing on new bands so...The Wood Brothers opened and played original tunes with a strong American roots feeling. I would definitely see them again. http://www.thewoodbros.com

Attention all you Dead Head Blues fans. There is a GREAT lineup of blues guitarists playing in Ventura California at Mission Park on Sunday 22 September as part of the BBQ and Blues Day of the California Beer Festival. My old next door neighbor from Ojai Mr. Robben Ford and two awesome ladies: From Texas it's Carolyn Wonderland and from Belgrade it's Amsterdam resident Ana Popovic. Many of you may have already seen Robben Ford with his own band or backing up John Mayall on tour or playing with Phil Lesh & Friends some years ago. But if you have not seen Carolyn Wonderland or Ana Popovic yet, well, you are in for a real treat! These two ladies are guaranteed to knock your blues socks off! So if you're a resident of the Los Angeles-Ventura-Santa Barbara-San Luis Obispo counties, and you're a fan of top-notch live blues guitar, you can't go wrong with this coming Sunday afternoon show in Downtown Ventura California. I will see you there! http://www.californiabeerfestival.com/ventura.php

Hi All,I just found out that John Batdorf, long an associate of Brent Mydland, is playing a show in the Los Angeles area. This from his website: ~~ ~~ ~~ Sunday, December 15th, 2013 4:00 PM John Batdorf Red Rocks Concert Present Sunday at The Book Store- Crown Books Store 6100 Topanga Canyon Blvd. # 1340 Woodland Hills, Ca. 91367 Price: $15.00 Donation I am thrilled to be opening a new series in the valley. This show kicks off the new series produced by Ron Sarfaty. Please come out and support Ron and myself so this can become a regular event! ~~ ~~ ~~ It's my local mall, and the space is a big, former Barnes and Noble store that they want to do some funky things in. I was just there, and I'm sure this is gonna have a Living Room Concert kind of vibe to it. If you're around the San Fernando Valley that night, I'll see you there!

Do you plan to check out Elijah Ford on his upcoming east coast tour this July??? It'd be a whole lot cooler if you did! Haha. You won't be sorry folks, seriously. Enjoy! Elijah Ford began his solo career after breaking from touring with Oscar & Grammy winner Ryan Bingham. Ford is the son of former Black Crowes' guitar heavyweight Marc Ford, and toured as part of Ford Sr's Fuzz Machine at the age of 17 before getting the gig with Bingham, where he stayed until 2012. Ford put out his first solo record Upon Waking in 2011 and his new EP Ashes in October of 2012. Elijah and his band The Bloom are currently preparing their new full length, recorded at Austin's own Arlyn Studios, for release in 2015.

Do you guys remember Klaatu? and their album 3:47 EST? I forgot all about the fiasco until this made the rounds on Facebook - https://ledgernote.com/blog/interesting/klaatu-the-secret-band-as-good-… It's a pretty good roundup of how it all went down. It was the mid-70's and Klaatu released their first album without any mention of who the band members were. It was pretty good, and somehow the rumor started spreading that it was The Beatles under a new name. The record company started encouraging the rumors and it was a huge ordeal. They made a ton of money on that record. The thing was, they didn't sound anything like The Beatles. They were certainly good, as good as any other prog rock band is good. But the allegations were silly. All of that is besides the point though. The 3:47 EST album is really good. They had some singles after that but I haven't really dug into their discography beyond this album.

Donna the Buffalo a solid Americana band. Tara Nevis plays numerous instruments allowing them to do different sounding stuff. Originally called Dawn of the Buffalo, the story goes their name was misstated from the stage way back, when they were all high on acid and so became Donna the Buffalo. Catch them this summer outside, they play numerous outside festivals usually a few upstate New York.http://donnathebuffalo.com/ The RI festival over Labor Day Weekend is a great one. Small enough to still be fun. Great if you have kids to bring since low key.camping is cool and many motels near by if camping isn't your thing. Camp closer away from the backwoods if all night music might bother you as numerous campers bring instruments to jam. With a dance tent on one end and stage at the other and usually an eclectic assortment of bands. http://rhythmandroots.com/ Ocean nearby and pond to swim in.

I think a few older Dead Heads might get a kick out of Nick Mason's latest project (Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets) who will be touring the US early next year. Just got great tickets for the Atlanta show!

From the Yankton Sioux Reservation, South Dakota. Mato Nanji on lead guitar is extremely talented .

What!!! I gotta check this out!!! I took my wife and daughter last year to Roger Waters. They really enjoyed that....But, I may be the Lone Ranger on this one. People seem to get weirded out when I listen to the older stuff like Ummagumma, Saucer, Atom heart etc... Gotta find a friend to go to the show in Denver.

You’re so right about Cubensis. They’ve played around So Cal since 1989 and over 3500 shows! Very skilled and fun to see them jam.
