Show Info

The Sycamore Slough String Band is an acoustic, bluegrass-oriented quartet of veteran players and singers in a new setting based on their mutual love of Grateful Dead music. The SSSB includes guitarist and singer David Gans (KPFA’s “Dead to the World,” Rubber Souldiers, Strawberry Field Trip), mandolin player David Thom (his own bluegrass band, as well as work with David Grisman and Grandpa Banana’s Band), “Fiddle Dave” Muhlethaler (Cornmeal, the Fall Risk), and bassist Roger Sideman (China Cats, Michael Kang, Frank These musicians came together in an Oakland recording studio in January 2012 to see what they could conjure. That first rehearsal was so charged that it became their debut CD. In addition to a very tight band sound, they toss in haunting vocal harmonies on songs from Dead standards to bluegrass classics and band originals, all performed with a Dead-centric mindset.
