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.
The fun police confiscated my drum sticks on the way into the Garden last Saturday. What's up with that?
Anybody interested in getting together Sunday afternoon to kick around some tunes and possibly some longer free form jams?
The other option would be an acoustic patio jam in Weehawken. I have a sweet chiminae that is quite cozy.
Email me directly if you're interested in a patio jam.
Maybe Friday(5/6) night or Saturday(5/7) afternoon this week if anyone is interested.
Would be cool to play around with some of the jams and easier songs/grooves. Some I think we could do:
Hood (I know bits of the composed section but can do the jam)
Steam (maybe...certainly not all the words)
And whatever else we can remember to figure out
