Reckoning: Reckoning reflects the songs of the Grateful Dead by exploring new musical innovations. Each show is unique and performed with passion, joy, sadness and bliss. They express emotions through improvisation while breathing new life into timeless classics. Reckoning began in 1990 on Long Island, NY and has played over 2000 shows at festivals, theatres and clubs in the Northeast area. Expanding the mind, body and spirit are members – Charlie Mirro Guitar, Guitar Synth & Vocals, Bob Laino Guitar & Vocals, Rich Hutchinson Keys & Vocals, Jeff Goldstein Bass, William “Buzz” Abelson Drums.

Reflections: The music Jerry Garcia played has defined many of us. It has spanned many generations. From Old Time to Bluegrass to Reggae to Blues, to Motown to Rock and Roll and of course Grateful Dead. We grew up with and were shaped by the music of the Grateful Dead. Sharing this music is the goal and love of this band. More than anything we appreciate our ever growing group of family and friends. As our shows have turned into a colorful dancing, celebration of like interests and smiles. Reflections plays this music with a vibrancy and joy resulting in a unique energetic sound & thankfully overflowing rooms. 

Driftwood Kin: If you closed your eyes, you would never guess that Driftwood Kin is a trio. Their full, rich sound combines elements of Americana, bluegrass, rock, and jazz, and their improvisation and sweet harmonies create an auditory mosaic balancing adventure and home. Whether playing originals or covers from bands such as The Grateful Dead, The Band, Bob Dylan, Phish, Cake or Little Feat, Alex, Lee, and Duncan always pay true homage to the Song. The result is a beautifully inspiring story, and the listener is somehow woven into their tale!
