Congrats on getting the spirit of Grateful Dead music exactly right. Playing and singing like you mean it, crescendos that transform the space, and bass and drums dropping bombs!! I'm a sound guy who's done studio and live work in NYC for the last 35 years and it's a rare and precious thing to hear a band capturing that elusive essence - but you guys do it right.”

"What a fantastic night at the In & Out of the Garden We Go Festival! Everyone was dancing and having a blast! People were still talking about you guys the next morning in the campground! IDB was the highlight of the weekend!"

You guys make sounds I FEEL! Which is what it's all about!!”

An Ode To IDB: I like it when the musicians look at each other at a certain time and they smile you know they're thinkin' yeah! we're cookin' now. I like it when someone requests a song and these guys go right into it no hesitation, no set schedule all the tunes you wanna hear when you wanna hear them can't ask for anything more. I like it when the guitars go back and forth you look away for a second, then look back and the lead has switched unaware to your ears the interplay was so grate it just is a gracious goodness of comfortable delights soaring as one in a spectrum of notes and chords. I like it when I can still get surprised as when the said interplay is happenin' and again a glance askew brings out a new mix where keyboards rule and take over, sounding as a lead guitar or I could have been drunk at the time.”
