Hey y'all, I'm Tony from Minneapolis. Been playin' for 8 years now, and ran across this site about 5 years ago when I was getting into the Dead. I've always been a Hendrix, Dead, and Allman Bros. fan....I'm also an effects junky. Love playing Weather Report Suite...would love to see Sage & Spirit and a complete Eleven someday![/img]

Howdy. I'm Dick from Bayone, NJ. I'm a friend of Ben, he turned me onto this site. I love that goofy bastard. I've been playing for about 15 years now, but only been playing the dead for about 7, my favorite tunes to jam are eyes of the world, bertha, and when I'm with my buddies; iko iko. My boy Scrivins plays a mean ass bongo.

It's nice to see 20 minute Dark Star > Other One jams from someone so young keep up the good work man. Help/Slipknot/Frank is another great piece I like your taste of great Dead jams. Anyway love the site and the new forum keep it rollin guys. Peace

I’m 36 years old. I live in Syracuse, NY. Been playing acoustic and electric guitar for 15 years. Putting together some songs with a friend to do open mike nights first and then graduate to paying gigs. I sing some but not very well, but I’m not afraid to do it. Love the Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers, The Band, Tom Petty, Gov’t Mule, CCR among others. Hi everyone.

Bill here. 41 been playing for 22yrs. Love the dead, blues, southern rock, classic and 60's rock, beatles to state just some. I live just outside of NYC in southern westchester NY.

Always looking to jam. Always learning new stuff and keeping it fresh. Playing music is an amazing thing. Seems like there is always a "plus" element, something new to learn.

I've been checking out this site for a couple of years now and when I saw the forum section added, I had to stick in my two cents. If I have anything useful to offer, it's the least I could do.

Thanks to Ed & Gregg for a tremendous job.
