I live relatively nearby to you, in Harrison--wish I had known about 
your gig in Rye--I've been playing dead stuff since I first heard Cream 
Puff War on NY Radio in 1967-I play lead guitar, don't really sing, but 
would be open to either jamming or seeing if I could fit into some 
configuration of players--have been attending jams at W 30th street for 
a while, let me know what you think--

 Thanks for the kind words Ted.  We all (the current crop pf players) 
started out fully intending to just have some fun - then we thought why 
not gig?  So we are.  It's been a lot of fun.  Not w/o it's own set of 
hassles as well but thats somewhat to be expected.  I came to a meetup 
quite a while back and while I enjoyed it the travel, whether by car or 
train, has been somewhat of a disincentive.  Parking is too expensive 
and I'm not a fan of bringing my gear on the train - at this point 
anyway.  I'm in Port Chester.
 
So you don't even gig downtown?  I'm the 'jerry guy' in our band and 
have been mulling over side projects for a while - want to at some 
point get a JGB style cover going (I've really been concentrating on 
JGB material lately) - and I'm also open to acoustic configurations 
both Dead and Jerry.  Did a gig in Rye with the female singer in our 
band a while back, just me on acoustic and the 2 of us singing - first 
time i did anything like that - no place to hide your screwups!  It was 
a bit liberating and scary all at once.  Here's a clip from that - the 
recording was a bit hot so I haven't made it public.

Anyway I'd like to get down a meetup again one of these days.  Thanks 
again for the kind words!

Hi Bill,


As a former Dead Head and still playing Weir-style rhythm guitar and 
singing, you guys sound great. Really capture the essence of The Dead. 
Unfortunately, I'm in NYC; without a car and still working on material 
with fellow Heads more for fun than any professional aspirations. Just 
keep it up and best of luck with your search.
Ted
