Dead Flowers


For those of you regular (and irregular) jammers who might be thinking about dipping your toes in something a little more serious than a casual jam (but maybe not as serious as a committed relationship to an ongoing band), we present: DEAD FLOWERS, and InstantBand loaded with jam-session staples and favorites:

  • Take It Easy (The Eagles)
  • Born On The Bayou (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
  • Long Train Running (The Doobie Brothers)
  • Going Down (Freddie King) Evil Ways (Santana)
  • Mary Jane's Last Dance (Tom Petty)
  • Brown-Eyed Girl (Van Morrison)
  • Dead Flowers (The Rolling Stones)
  • Gimme Three Steps (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
  • I Heard It Through The Grapevine (CCR version)

...or whatever the group would like to substitute. The very talented and experienced Ed Howe will serve as your bandleader, and lend his guitar and vocal skills as needed. The band will rehearse July 9, 16, 23, and 30 (all 6:30-9 pm at The Jam), and perform live at The Red Lion on August 2. There’s room for a lead vocalist, guitarist, bassist, and keyboardist. This package deal (10 hours of rehearsals, your esteemed Facilitator, and an onstage experience (complete with backline gear all set up and ready to go) is $299 for Jam Members, $349 for nonmembers - and the only way to snag YOUR spot is by calling 212 626 8472 x2, credit or debit card in hand. You snooze you lose;)
