Re: My Favorite New Covers#9778 2 years, 11 months agoThey're all good. I've gotta get out to some more shows!I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

exactly, covers is such a bad word. I feel they are more individual interpation of someone else's art. I hate to use the word cover man.

Re: My Favorite New Covers#10077 2 years, 11 months agoDude, I go to so many shows and I am wondering where everyone is? I personally would drive hours to go see dead cover bands, because they are all truly good, in own ways and each gives you a different experience.
WIGJAM - One of my favorites, out of NY/NJ area often plays @ Mexicali Live in NJ; These guys are truly awesome as I have followed them all over...seen them in large venues & restaurants where most of the patrons were there for the food (and didn't even know who were the Dead were) ...They usually play a pre-party for furthur, when they come to town - it's called Ship of Fools and it takes place on a the ROCKS OFF Ship which goes up to the GW Bridge and then down to the lady (Statue of LIberty) before returning you to port in time to catch a quick bite and get to Furthur. If you haven't done this yet, do it - it is awesome. If you have done it b4, see you next time!
Reflections - Out of NY/NJ plays Grateful Dead & Jerry Music but is often dedicated to only playing Jerry. They are truly awesome and they are playing Mexicali this weekend 4/9.
Splintered Sunlight -Around the Maryland/Pennsylvania areas, these guys are truly awesome and being asian myself, I have my heart with this band (The lead guitarist is Asian and often called the "Asian Jerry")
InDead Nation - I am not too sure about this band, but I am going to see them this weekend (and missing Reflections for it). They are playing in Maryland tonight 4/8.
Reckoning - Another dead cover band is very good, but also mixes in some other classic rock like Floyd and Neil Young.
Shakedown Street - Just another one that I know of, but never saw...They seem to have a big following and are widely known. I haven't seen them, but I sure would love to soon.
Dude, you almost never have to go without dead music. There is a cover band playing somewhere. I have my weekends booked til June with DSO and Cover bands. There is just too much time between Furthur shows, we gotta get our Dead fixes somewhere. I hope those above were of interest to you.
