We get together at least once a month to play Grateful Dead tunes at a practice studio in midtown.  Amps, drums, mics, and keyboards are provided by the studio and the cost for one room is usually $60-70 for three hours split between everyone.  There is a usual revolving cast of characters and we encourage people of all skill levels to come play.  The veterans tend to lead and the beginners are happy to follow.

We are not trying to start a real band (although you can) and we don't spend much time circling back to do things over.  The Studio is byob and our usual room has a couch in it so even if you don't play an instrument, come on down.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
