In dedication and devotion to the musical adventure of the Grateful Dead: Jeff Orr, Dusty Alander, Scott Tillotson, Wyatt Rakich, Keith Alcantara and Jay Gavin bring back their own interpretation of music that has inspired for 50 years! Born out of the love and inspiration of their favorite Band, Catfish Catfish John is a collective of serious players looking to express their affection and respect for the music of The Grateful Dead. They are artists giving a unique take on the music of The Grateful Dead. Catfish John performs raucous, intuitive, wide-open jams, with stunning guitar and tight vocal harmonies that compliment and complete their big full sound.
THE TENS - Following the tradition of great acts before them, The Tens cut their musical teeth on the streets. Beginning as a busking band, the group spent its formative years refining their raw, funky, soul sound on the corners of L.A.’s most iconic intersections. Since then, they have moved the show indoors, becoming one of the city’s most prolific gigging bands, attracting devout fans along the way.
In 2016, The Tens embarked on a national tour that culminated in the recording of their eponymous debut album, cut live and direct to vinyl at Welcome to 1979 studios in Nashville, TN. - https://www.thetensband.com/video
