Normal Bean Band
CECIL P-NUT DANIELS WILL NO LONGER BE PERFORMING AT THIS SHOW, UNFORTUNATELY.
Deep South Entertainment & Uncle John’s Bands are pleased to announce a very up close and in your face intimate concert featuring: Grateful Dead member Tom Constanten who will be performing Sunday Sept 15 at Deep South The Bar along with Normal Bean Band of Eugene, Oregon. We are pleased to announce that this show will also feature Cecil P-Nut Daniels (Widespread Panic). Tom was a member of the Grateful Dead and was inducted into the ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME in 1994 along with The GRATEFUL DEAD.
Constanten (keyboardist) was classically trained at Berkley. His talent and musical genius brought him to the Grateful Dead scene, as well as having been a college roommate of Phil Lesh. Constanten became the Dead's advisor/keyboard creative spirit, altering normal piano sounds by inserting combs, Dutch dimes, and a gyroscope into the body of the keyboard, as they recorded the masterpiece avant-garde albums Anthem of the Sun and Aoxomoxoa. He joined the touring band in November 1968, and amicably departed in January 1970.
Today T.C. is continuing to perform as a past member of the iconic band, and using the Grateful image to continue thrilling crowds who remember Dead concerts, or wish they had been able to attend the original band’s performances. His collaboration with Normal Bean Band provides a Dead experience through Grateful-like stage performance and many classic hippie favorites mixed with original Normal pieces that are truly Dead-like.
Deep South The Bar is going to be a Meet & Greet event as this show will be an epic night. Special guests Spongecake & The Fluff Ramblers, friends of The Further & Widespread Panic Families, will open the show.

Calling the Carolinas home.Spongecake and the Fluff Ramblers is an improvisational band that dabbles around the edges of Rock/Folk/ Funk/ Jazz Fusion. They meld jams in and out of genres and styles , falling into the occassional improvised cover. No two shows are ever the same , no cover is ever played the same way twice. SCATFR also has an alter ego ( sometimes referred to as Unkle Dad ) playing either electric or unplugged bluegrass and olde timey classics and originals.
SCATFR has been playing shows and festivals across the country for the past several years, winning fans and wrecking minds. They have become known for playing late night festival sets, often lasting into the early morning hours. Playing festivals in eight states to date. They have had the pleasure of performing at some of the countries finest venues. Notable venues such as Off Broadway ( St. Louis ) Mojo's ( Columbia,Mo. ) Cervante's ( Denver ) Pioneer Inn ( Nederland , Co ) Bourbon Theater ( Lincoln, Ne. ) Bob White Theater ( Portland,Or. ) Jack Rabbit's ( Jacksonville, Fl. ) Jazzbones ( Tacoma, Wa. ) and a slew of others have hosted the madness of a SCATFR show.
SCATFR enjoys what they do and tries to bring that festy feel to each and every show. They encourage artist and artisan vending at their shows, and often have live artist and other performers performing with them. They also invite audio and video recording of all performances. As each performance is unique, every show has moments that neither can or will ever be created again.
SCATFR has shared the stage with Consider The Source, Cope, Green Sunshine, Larry Keel, Flux Capacitor, Sol Driven Train, Vertigo Jazz Project, Dirk Quinn, The Real, Blue Lotus, Cats Under The Stars, Cast Of Clowns, Cody's Wheel and numerous others.
