ABOUT

Interested in finding good players for a jamband or Dead-related thing. Recent projects include Dead Wood, Magic Bus, occasionally with Kindred Kind and guest with Grateful Rhythm Band and various Grateful Dead-related projects. Formerly with regional country acts Smokin Gunz and Rollin Whiskey. I enjoy working with musicians interested in Garcia/Grateful Dead-related jam music, as well as Alt-Country, roots rock/blues and related groove-oriented music. You can find me at barrywolf at dot net. I'm also at Dead Wood Band, the Kindred Kind and Dire Wolf - Band on . I'd like to work with skilled, accomplished players that are comfortable with their instruments. I really enjoy improvisation - tons of experience, formally trained with a degree in music performance. My roots are in the blues, both American and British-style. I have many years of experience playing live, have pro equipment and attitude.
Past work: backing local singer-songwriter Courtney Sullivan, Change is Good, Vinyl Highway Band, Redline 7000, DeLane, Magic Frank Blues Band, Your Parents, Citizen Kane, Lindholm and others. I've played in many good original projects and have lots of experience in many different types of music. barrywolf-at- dot net
