Band to Join, Other, Keyboard, Other Percussion, Bass Guitar, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist, Mandolin.


I've been playing music most of my life. It's one of those driving forces we don't quite understand. For the past 17 years I've played with a Grateful Dead tribute band out of Central Illinois. PTB is the longest running Dead tribute band in the mid-west who are in their 23rd year but we are very slow these days. We play about 12-18 shows per year. I NEED MORE! I need to find musicians interested in exploring music and doing a variety of covers and original creations. Looking to play local and local regional shows. Have connections in Illinois and St. Louis for possible Scwag Stock. Please be serious and not looking to get wasted at shows.
