On the Bus
On The Bus is the premier Grateful Dead tribute band in the Washington, D.C area, known for its faithful recreation of the music, vibe and experience of a Grateful Dead show. On The Bus is not just a tribute to the Dead, but a tribute to the musical environment that spawned a multi-generational genre that artfully blends the essential elements of rock, blues, jazz, funk, country, bluegrass, and soul.
The group was formed in early 2002 and performed in the area as a three-piece band for the first 4 years. The late Vince Welnick of the Grateful Dead commented on the trio saying "They're something you gotta see!" As the band's mission grew to embrace the idea of being as "Dead-like" as possible, the band expanded to the current 5 members. On The Bus plays clubs, parties and regional festivals, and has shared the stage with Jefferson Starship, Vince Welnick, John Kadlecik, Cornmeal, Ekoostic Hookah, and many other regional and national acts. The band is a proud member of the Rex Foundation Travelling Caravan, the Grateful Dead's charity founded by Jerry Garcia. On the Bus plays an annual social on Capitol Hill for Senator Patrick Leahy from Vermont, and has made many local weddings and private parties Grateful events to remember. Come join the party!
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.
