Welcome Chris! It's an understatement to say we all miss Jerry and I think everyone would agree that by playing his music and continuing to play music that comes from the same general space that all great musicians come from is a fitting tribute to his legacy. Music is a lifelong gift and it does not matter if you play for one, two, or hundreds of people, music transcends all boundries of human spirit and Jerry and the boys were, and continue to be, an inspiration to us all.

I have played with some very cool people I have met through rukind and have also communicated with very knowledgeable people about other topics here. Lots of good folk here!

Welcome!
