So wait a minute - are you Ted?  Or did he forward to you? :)
I lived in Harrison for about 12 years -  a few different places - in the Brentwood originally and last I was on Sterling Ave off of West St. - before moving to PC.  We play Uncle Henry's regularly as well.  I stop there for a beer or 2 once or twice a week after work as i work in New Rochelle and live in PC.  At minimum a jam seems in order :)

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
