too many gd cover bands so lets go see a jgb cover band.

Tim Tom January 24, 2014, 17:02:28

No reason to ask why, these guys bring it. Seen ‘em multiple times already.

“And they’re wiating for a MIRACLE.” This one….however….is made of dollar signs & attracts kids that have NO clue what it’s about…....WAS about rather.

There are thousands of Jambands out there that bring it every night. Most of them even write their own music! The fact that the website that is supposed to be the Rolling Stone Magazine of Jambands is reporting the tour schedule of some random Georgia JGB cover band is pathetic. The actual JGB is a cover band at this point! How about reporting on original bands?

I’m kind of in the middle of all the opinions here- at this point the focus should probably be on original jambands currently killing it… not random cover bands. At the same time though, I dig the coverage on GD offshoots. Even stuff like Terrapin Flyer (TC, Melvin & Mark Karan together?!).

This is inane… I really hope this is paid advertising, and not a story that thinks we will care about.
A cover band of a cover band that was a superstar’s off-night project?

Great these guys are in a band but they lower the standard. Bad vocals and basic rock riffs. Not even close. Go see Melvin, Mark Karan, Stu Allen, Barry Sless, Neal Casal, Kimock, … and the names go on. Nice to have friends…p.s. My All Accordian Bob Weir Cover Band launches its tour soon. Stay tuned!

This band is using an outstanding management company that knows how to get things done such as generate highly professional press releases. I sure hope they had good some good turnouts over the past few months with all of the time, effort and money that has been invested in the project.
