I'm looking for a few experienced musicians that have the desire and time it takes to work with like minded players, that love the sound and music of the Grateful Dead.
In 30 years of playing together, the Dead played hundreds, if not thousands of "Cover Tunes" besides their own material. So there's a lot of ground to cover and a lot of material to draw from to hold your interest..
But it was their unique sound and the way they played those songs, is the what I'm looking to do to the best of our abilities. To leave the people listening with that same happy feeling.
As it is with any tribute type band, the more the players are familiar with that group,
the faster it all comes together.
I can expect that anyone that's interested in this project will already be familiar with a good portion of their catalog.
But what I really want is for everyone to have fun making this happen.
This is not a call for a jam session, but an attempt to assemble a well formed and professional sounding band.
I'm not into wasting anyone's time and everyone else participating will be competent and experienced.
The only way to make sure this is so is to provide a sample of your playing when you respond.
Anything will do.. A You Tube link, drop box upload, or even just a fast recording from your phone.
Don't forget to include your personal e-mail address and/or phone number.
I will reply to everyone that writes even if it doesn't work out.
Peace and Stay Kind.
