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.”

Summertime done, come and gone....my oh my!! 

What a great summer!

We had incredible weekends in Woodstock, NY playing the hallowed grounds of Max Yasgur's farm, then among the vintage spirits at the Catskill Distilling Company. We shared in good vibes with all the kind folks at Karmafest at Fellowship Farm in PA Labor Day weekend. We were honored to play Still Grateful Fest 4 with a ton of amazing bands and meet brother Ragu from the beautiful venue Mountain Sky in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania.  

We're in Easton, PA this weekend (Sept 17) supporting the Arts at the Riverside Festival of the Arts. Live music, artists, food, drink, you name it.  FREE and family friendly. Come support the arts!

Next weekend we headline the Branchburg Country Fair Saturday night at 6pm leading up to the SPECTACULAR fireworks display. Bring the family. Sunday we hit RUSSTIVAL at the Clinton Elks with a ton of great bands.  Come support a great cause!

Congrats to Chris Preston for winning September's "Write IDB's Setlists" contest which we will be playing in their entirety at the Rail on November 12th.

Peace.
