    Starcat = killer Jerry Garcia Band tribute

    I may be spoiled, but Indianapolis has an amazing band called Starcat that performs music by the Jerry Garcia Band with a lineup that resembles Jerry's classic 90's outfit.

    Caught these guys a month ago in Va. Maybe next week in the bay area.
    Great live show. Much improvisation.
    Glorious and joyful originals. Great covers. Fun Jams coming from some very young pups.
    Hopefully they're built to last.

Thanks for the tip. In case you missed it, there's a short documentary out on Vimeo where Stephen talks to GD historian Blair Jackson while recording for the slack project out in CA: https://vimeo.com/223074777

It's really cool seeing two GD nerds discuss the project's background. David Gans also makes an appearance.

They are obviously solid, very tight musicians. However, I found their recorded music to be almost muzac for Deadheads...excellent background music played by exceptional musicians. Luckily, I had opportunity to catch a live show, and for $20, I gave it a shot. All I can say is "Wow"...extreme energy live...very tight, almost disciplined live, but also highly creative and improvisational. They played about 2 1/2 hours non-stop with VERY impressive jams. I highly recommend their live shows.

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

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.

Any fans digging Billy's awesome live gigs. He's covered lots of Dead tunes "Wharf Rat" , "To lay Me Down", "Me & My Uncle", All done really well. Of course he's played in Billy and the Kids.
