On the Bus

On the Bus is the premier Grateful Dead tribute band in the Washington DC area, known for its faithful recreation of the music, vibe and experience of a Dead show.

Founded in 2002, On The Bus has performed with John Kadlecik, Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick, Jefferson Starship, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Moonalice, Cornmeal, Ekoostic Hookah, and many other talented musicians and bands.

Black Muddy River Band

Black Muddy River Band is a three-member acoustic group from the Washington DC area that captures the music and spirit of the Grateful Dead. Two- and three-part harmonies overlay acoustic guitars, bass and mandolin (in ever-changing combinations). Fans of the Dead's early 1970s acoustic albums will find these gems both captured and interpreted in fresh new ways. The group also plays acoustic versions of songs that the Dead only played “plugged in,” including extended jams where the three instruments interweave to capture the Dead’s spare intricacy.

Black Muddy River Band is:
Jamie Daly (mandolin, guitar, bass, vocals) has played in various DC-area acoustic groups since 1985, none of which had enough Dead in the set list. Two of those groups, The Outpatients and The Constituents, are still current. He lives in South Arlington with wife Mina Stanard.

Steve Neugeboren (guitar, vocals) recently played with the DC Area Grateful Dead tribute band, On the Bus. Having moved off the bus and into an unplugged format, Steve contributes his own original material to the band's performances.

Dave Wolf (guitar, bass, vocals) hails from Maryland, is deeply versed in the bluegrass form and is enjoying a return to the Dead material he loved when it all began.
