Way back in May 2010, bassist Matt Fouts and I were hanging out at our friend Bryan Buchan's Grand Rapids home. I had just driven in from Wyandotte and heard Tom Petty's "Alright For Now" on the radio, and it stuck in my mind. I decided to ask Matt to record the tune with me, in Bryan's living room. I can't be certain, but I think we just used an iPhone microphone, and Matt and I quickly laid down this live performance. I'm very saddened Tom has left us, but I'm happy to have seen him live, and will be exploring his music for years to come.
Here's a video of Dave and Jake Vasquez of Raising The Dead performing a few favorite songs from the Grateful Dead acoustically at the Trenton Scarecrow Festival. The performance was streamed live to Facebook, and archived for you to see here. Enjoy!
Music for any occasion!
