The Sycamore Slough String Band was founded January 2012 by David Gans. Mandolinist David Thom worked for 2 years as a guitarist with the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, has lead the David Thom Band since 1996, and plays in Grandpa Banana’s Band. Fiddle Dave was a co-founder of Cornmeal, has toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd’s drummer the Artimus Pyle Band, and recently spent a year playing in The Fall Risk, a band led by Furthur’s Jeff Pehrson. Bassist Roger Sideman has performed with Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident) and bluegrass legend Frank Wakefield, and currently performs with The China Cats. David Gans performs “solo electric” and also does a lot of Grateful Dead-related stuff on the radio, online, and in books. These musicians share an affinity for the music of the Grateful Dead, and came together in an Oakland recording studio in January 2012 to see what they could conjure.
